Sorry I haven’t updated in a while. As you may have heard, Baton Rouge and surrounding areas have suffered the worst natural disaster since Superstorm Sandy. My family is all safe, but my husband’s whole family have moved in as their house was under 28 inches of water. So there are a total of six …
So, here we are. First day of school. Noah is in 8th grade now. Not entirely sure how that happened. Not just the growing up fast part but the holy cookies, Batman, he passed 7th grade!!! Anyway, because the beginning of the school year feels like the beginning of a NEW year, I’m kinda revamping …
Our son has ADHD and therefore, when he is not on his medication, he has some problems focusing on one task at a time. I may have that, too.

We always put off celebrating Valentine’s Day because my husband’s parents’ anniversary is 14 Feb. Now that they live near us, we spend that day with them. This year, because my mother-in-law had an accident with her motorized scooter where her face met the mall parking lot HARD, she is bruised all over her face, …
When we moved from PA to Louisiana in 2005, one of the first things we did was buy a new refrigerator. I loved that it came with an ice maker. One of my favorite things is a large glass of instant decaf iced tea filled with ice. A couple of years ago, the ice maker …
I love doing National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), but I don’t do it every year because usually I’m in the middle of a book and don’t want to stop to start something new. This year, I finished the second run through of Pigsty Princess the end of September and decided to let it sit long …
