And Away We Go…

Tomorrow morning we’re loading up the car and heading out for a 19 hour drive through six states. Road trips aren’t anything new to us, but we have the new dynamic of taking the dog with us this time. Now some of you might be saying to yourself (and not for the first time), “Are…

Continuing…

I’m going to see if I can knock out the rest of the holiday saga. Here we go… * Taylor has continued on with his yearly Christmas tradition of being sick on Christmas. Poor baby. I am not kidding. Every stinkin’ year he has a head cold or a sinus infection or bronchitis or something.…

Christmas Trip – Part I

We left for Palm Springs on Monday, December 22. Just like when we flew to Hawaii, we had to leave the house at 4:00 in the morning. Unlike when we flew to Hawaii, it was 14 degrees outside. In case you’ve never experienced 14 degrees – that’s cold. REALLY cold. The route had a two-hour…

Down to the Wire

Twenty-four hours from right this very minute I’ll be kicking back in my plane seat, reading my fabulous book, glancing out the window every now and then, winging my way to my dream vacation. Hopefully I will be packed long before then. Since the trip had to be cancelled last year I find myself experiencing…

Stubborn Is as Stubborn Does

I never used to think of myself as stubborn. I was an easy going, laid back kid who most of the time never had to have her way. I was usually happy to do whatever my friends wanted to do. It wasn’t until I had Taylor that I realized “stubborn” comes in all shapes and…

A Bunch of Good Stuff

So what’s up? Nothin’ much going on here. Just the usual. You know. Todd’s at work – he’s got major short timer’s disease, but he’s making a valiant effort; Katie’s babysitting; Taylor’s at CIY in Tennessee – kind of like church camp only much more intense. Katie’s Little Homies are going camping this afternoon through…
