…it changes everything.

I am a creature of change.  Being raise in the military, change was a natural part of life for me.  We moved every two to three years and being the "new" kid in school felt natural.  I once was a shy Kindergartener but after we moved from Edina to Grand Forks, I...

Everybody's workin' for the weekend

Betcha have that song in your head now, huh?  I was thinking last week as I experienced my first time being sick and being a full-time mommy, how mothering is really a 24/7 job.  Sure, I don't have any place to report in day in and day out.  I don't get an annual...

Ew Ew Ew!!!!

I ran to Target to pick up two things tonight before I had to race to church for my fiction book club. Upon stepping into our house, I come to find Ben holding Brennan out from himself with his khakis rolled up to his knees and his socks off. Chula is outside barking...

Back in the Saddle Again

Well, I'm back. It's been an incredibly LONG time since I last posted but summer always proves to be an incredibly busy time. I always find summer to be disappointing. I imagine it being relaxing, filled with adventure, lazy days, warmth...I could go on and on....
