Have I told you all that I am currently living with two college men?
I have an eight-year-old who does his math studies through Johns Hopkins University under the guidance of a Stanford professor and a husband who is pursuing his MBA through a local university’s online programming. It’s all [...]
Seven years ago, I sat, lonely, in an Indiana farmhouse, caring for a one-year-old and a six-month-old. That six-month-old had arrived incredibly early and we were still dealing with the repercussions of that.
I searched BabyCenter and other “baby sites.” I tried to join the preemie groups and boards the [...]
Do you remember Minute to Win It? Remember how fun it was to watch people make fools of themselves in an effort to complete silly challenges before a minute was up? My husband and I used to laugh our heads off at some of the contestants– either that, or talk smack [...]
Planning family vacations can seem like an overwhelming task. With so very many options out there and so many factors to take into account, sometimes you feel like you need a vacation just from the process of figuring out where you should go and what you should do!

For the most part, this blogging gig of mine is something my kids don’t really understand. They certainly wouldn’t ever consider it my “job”– my role as stay-at-home mom neatly fills that role.

This is good in that [...]
I posted that photo on Facebook a few weeks ago on my birthday. Under it, I wrote…
Yes, indeed. Thirty-six.Truth be told, my age is not all that alarming to me.
I think part of that has to do with the fact that I’m the youngest child in my [...]
Road trip! Those two words just make me smile. I’ve always loved exploring and travelling and seeing new places. When I hear about people who’ve never seen the ocean… or never crossed the Mississippi… or never left the country… well, I just can’t imagine. There’s not one thing wrong with not travelling, [...]
I had a ridiculously busy (but fun!) weekend. We went from a baseball game to a duck conservatory to a hike through the woods. We ran errands and spent an entire day at a picnic and an amusement park. I don’t mind admitting that I collapsed on my kitchen floor when we [...]
