Life marching on…whether we want it to or not.

I cried on the way home from work. The stress and pressure of keeping things afloat at the office is getting to me. Everyone says it will get easier. I just don't know when. Life doesn't stop for death. Whatever happened to a mourning period? My little Parker taught me to make dinner. She's 5.... Continue Reading →

i am thinking…

Things I love: My family, my friends, my dog Things I wish I had: Inner-peace, a bigger kitchen, more time, more patience My favorite place(s) on earth: Home, the ice rink, any bookstore Things that gross me out: Sitting across from someone who is eating with their mouth open. It's not see-food, people! Things I... Continue Reading →

my husband has the job i want

The landscaping season has winded down. Now is the time that my hard-working hubby becomes a stay-at-home-husband. Lucky man. He has the job I want.

do you live what you believe?

He should kick up his heels, dance a little, maybe on a table. But he can't because he was diagnosed with a fatal disease called ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis... Continue Reading →

kicking the habit

We all have habits that we should kick. Habits like smoking; it's bad for our lungs. Drinking less soda and drink more water. Eating less junk food and eat more fruits and vegetables. We know we should change those habits. But what about less  obvious habits like biting our nails, cursing less, or shopping to deal... Continue Reading →

caught in a lie

Alex caught me in a lie. This was after I had been lecturing her about lying all week long. Worse yet, she did something sneaky to find out I had lied. She wanted over-priced ice cream from the ice cream truck rolling down the block. I didn't want to pay four times the price for... Continue Reading →
