I am highly offended. HIGHLY. I had to go to the local drugstore to look for some birthday cards for my moms. (I have two moms, a *real* mom and a step mom). My sons begged and begged to go, but they had some schoolwork to finish up, and honestly, I just knew they’d only […]

I rarely if ever drive at dusk and at night (never ate my carrots as a kid), but I had to run an errand the other evening and was out later than I thought. Both my son and I noticed the beautiful moon hanging over the horizon in the darkening sky. It seemed to appear […]

I found this video on my friend Renee’s blog. The kids and I got a kick out of it, especially since we’re delving into English grammar for home lessons now. I caught an uncorrected mistake in this bright young man’s schpeel, though. Can you figure it out?

Comments Off on A Great Holiday Homes Search Site

Our recent stay at a bed and breakfast gave me a hankering to hit the travel trails again. It was SO good to get away, but the time was much too short (just two days). Staying at a home is much, much more enjoyable than a hotel. I dislike hotels just because they seem a […]

Is it just me, or does the week just FLY by, and before you know it, it’s Monday again! When I was a kid, the days of the week dragged by. Why does time seem to pass so much more quickly when we are older? Questions: 1. Do you have a fireplace in your home? […]
