Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

September 17, 2006

I had a life-altering experience on Saturday. To some it may seem like nothing to get worked up about, no big deal. But to me it was like a gift from God, better than sliced bread (which truly doesn’t excite me). You know how there are special moments in your life that are so full…

The Anniversary Cake

September 14, 2006

As probably all of you know, I had a left mastectomy on May 3, 2005 due to breast cancer. On May 3, 2006 this cake was delivered to my door: Two of my friends, Lisa and Amy (hi guys), sent this to me for an anniversary cheer-me-up. Along with the cake they sent a card.…

42/42 & Rocky

September 9, 2006

Todd is 42-years-old today. He was 19 when we started dating. It’s weird to think of him as a middle-aged man. It’s downright horrific to think of myself as a middle-aged woman. Where have the years gone? Of course, most of the time I still see us as those crazy twenty-something, newly married kids. But…

Scary Signs and Wawa

September 6, 2006

SCARY SIGNS I have now lived in the Northeast for three months. While I would have been perfectly happy to live out my days in the south, I do love it here. It’s beautiful country and the scads of American history is fascinating. But I keep hearing, “Just wait until winter.” I was able to…

Invincible, Previews & Goobers

September 4, 2006

Seeing as how we live in the Philadelphia area, it was our civic right – nay, our civic duty – to see the movie Invincible. Just as the plot summary says, it’s a “real feel good movie”. After several losing years, the Philadelphia Eagles hire Dick Vermeil (Greg Kinnear) from UCLA to coach the team.…

Lots of Rain = Movies

September 2, 2006

It’s been raining nonstop since about noon yesterday. Last night the winds got pretty fierce, but it seems they’ve calmed down some. As much as I lament the fact we didn’t get to go camping, I am enjoying the cooler weather. I’ve been ready for fall since the end of spring. And there’s no denying…

Ernesto, the Stinkin’ Pesto and Books

August 31, 2006

We were supposed to go camping in the Poconos this long, holiday weekend. It was amazing I was even able to get reservations at such a late date. But Ernesto has other plans for us. He’s going to dump large amounts of H2O on the eastern part of Pennsylvania over the weekend. A 30 foot…

What a Monday!!

August 29, 2006

I have a grocery list to make out – which means I have grocery shopping to do – a kitchen to clean and clothes to be ironed. So I’m blogging instead. School started yesterday. (Can you hear the angels singing the Hallalulia chorus as I do?) It was a pretty rough morning for Katie –…

Liz Curtis Higgs

August 27, 2006

Tomorrow is a special day for me. The kids will start school and I’m going to treat myself to doing nothing but read for the entire day. I’m caught up on laundry, I’ve got simple meals planned for a couple of days, the house is manageable. I’m good. A few years ago I kept seeing…
