Ten Years Ago Today

The preschool party that morning proved to be just a little too much for a three-year-old Katie. Whatever was on the TV that afternoon was fascinating!

“THE” Sermon

Picture me winking my eye at you while saying an exaggerated “‘Theeeeee’ Sermon”. Done? Okay. Yesterday was the first sermon in the “Our Rotten Sex Life” series at church. Good stuff and I thought I would share. True to Jenster’s Musings it will be convoluted, however, I will end up with a point. So join…

God and Sex Continued

I’ve been overwhelmed with the comments I’ve received to yesterday’s post, both on my blog and through email. Thank you, each and every one of you, for your positive comments, encouragement and prayers. Todd was spot on in his comment. That was one of the most difficult posts I’ve ever written. Mine is not an…

God and Sex

Did that get your attention?? I have a lot to say on both subjects and this post may end up rambling, so bear with me. Our church – Christ’s Church of the Valley or CCV – is very different. It is a non-denominational Bible church that looks a bit like a movie theater on the…

The Rest Is History

Back in the spring I wrote about how Todd and I met twenty-three years ago on April 5th. If you didn’t read it or want to refresh your memory you can read it HERE. My plan was to write about our next meeting the following month, however, as is often the case with me, I…

Fried Green Tomatoes and Stuff

Katie and I watched Fried Green Tomatoes last night. It’s times like that when I love having a daughter. Oh, I suppose there are other times I love having a daughter, too. But chillin’ together with a chick flick is just fun. It’s been quite a while since I’ve seen this movie, but watching it…

Rhode Island Part II: The Wedding

Sunday night I stayed in Glenn & Cristie’s room with Cristie while Glenn slept on a roll away bed in our room. Monday morning was another fabulous breakfast, a trip to the salon and getting ready for the wedding. The minister came to the B&B and we followed him to The Forty Steps where we…

It’s All About Love

My Katie gets home from camp today! I can’t wait to see her and hear all about her week. I want to know everything. What friends she made, what crafts she did, what she ate, what important life lessons she learned (like the throwing up thing or the M&Ms thing) and mostly what the camp…

I Miss Katie

Katie went to church camp on Sunday and while I’m glad she gets to have this experience, I miss her. *sigh* It’s only been two days and I still have five to go. I’m thrilled she had the opportunity to go – we were actually supposed to be in Arkansas this week. There were four…

Percocet Post aka Ooops, I’m Pregnant

I haven’t had any need for the Percocet for a while now, but I did “compose” this post one night after my medication had relaxed me significantly. The funny and/or sad thing is it reads pretty much like my sober posts. Which means we can infer I am the same whether under the influence or…
