My friend, Gretchen, stole borrowed this from my friend, Susan, so I’m stealing borrowing it from Gretchen and, in effect, Susan. Five Random Facts 1. Yesterday in my mad dash to get home from work, take Katie to voice, run errands while she was at voice, get her back home, inhale a bite to eat,…

Creative Happiness

Today is the first day of a four day weekend and I’m determined not to waste it. I’m going to do all manner of right-brained activities, starting with my new blog header. This field is across the street from my neighborhood. Every time I leave the development and look at the green grass, the hay…

Finally we got dressed and Michele came over to take us exploring. Mom and Dad stayed put and we girls went to Aztec Ruins National Monument. When I say…

An Island Called Long*

*Thank you to Dan R. for the titleThis past weekend Todd and I took off for a much needed get away on Long Island. It was the first time we’ve ever left the kids home alone and I feel it was a success because: a) they didn’t kill or even maim each other; b) police…

Presidents’ Day And Other Happenings

Happy Presidents’ Day – especially those of you who get the day off of school or work. Personally I’d rather be celebrating spring. A warm, but not hot, sunny day with the windows open and the smell of fragrant flowers wafting through a very clean and dust free house (it’s my fantasy, isn’t it?). While…
