What’s old is new again. At least in my life right now. BOY, it’s been a whirlwind of changes for me lately. All good, but everything is happening so quickly, it seems. Or maybe life has been in slow motion for so long that it seems like life has sped up. ANYWAY. Amongst all the […]

I made it. All my children are young adults and they survived my mothering skills. Well, just about. When you are a very young parent, (I had my first child when I was 22! TWENTY-TWO! I was a BABY!) a lot of parenting is trial and error. I can’t say I grew up knowing how […]

Almost 5,000 feet above sea level, and a mighty fine place it is. šŸ™‚ Oh, every place has its own beauty and interest. But I just happen to live in the same […]

I’ve HAD it. We’ve done next to nothing all summer because it’s been so blasted hot. But I don’t care. Soon winter will be here and I won’t be able to do anything except huddle around my little heater. So despite the scorching heat wave that hasn’t really ended since it began in May, I […]

Dinner is over. ‘Twas a nice meal (zucchini and sausage in tomato sauce over pasta). We are sitting around the table, just relaxing. The two boys are absorbed in an iPod Star Wars type game, so tinny sounds of laser guns (pwew pwew!) and speeding spaceships (rrrroorz) pepper the air while the adults chat. Dad: […]

Any of you parents suffer through Veggie Tales? They were a big hit with my kids when they were little. I thought Veggie Tales was *OK* but sometimes it was REEELLY annoying. Like Larry’s “silly songs.” Those songs drove me out of the living room every time. :bangwall: If I even caught a whisper of […]
