It's pouring rain here. It's a good thing, as we need the water, but it's pretty cold. I had to go out this morning to pick up a few last-minute things at the grocery store, and I noticed that my wiper blades were shredded. As in they were falli... Read more

We had the children's Christmas pageant today, and it's always a highlight of the year for me. This year I helped the kids get ready. It wasn't so bad, except there were 40 angels and I had to help them all get wings on! And then they were squir... Read more

I am so close to being done with school, I can taste it! I did my Excel final today and got a 100%. I wasn't expecting to do that well, as there was no help on this test-- you either got the problems right or wrong-- but we did have three tries ... Read more

For Thanksgiving, my Dad was going to drive to my house and I was going to make us chicken tacos. I know, not traditional, but what he requested. Dad called me today and said it's supposed to be pouring rain that day, so he doesn't want to drive... Read more
