Our Holiday Reality

Oh, the holidays.  Most people love the holidays.  Me, not so much.  I’ve never been a big fan.  When I had kids, I resigned myself to having to celebrate them.  And it hasn’t been bad.  The kids enjoy the celebrations, the decorations and really get into the spirit of the holidays.  And I try, every […]

Our Pieces Fit Just Fine

We had our parent teacher conference today for Aiden.  We already had a progress report halfway through the quarter and have been monitoring his progress closely so we knew it was going to be a mostly positive meeting.  However, I was shocked when it was all laid out in front of me.  My 6 year […]

When Aiden was born, things seemed just […]

That’s My Shtick is Born

Well, here I am.  I’ve started several blogs and then poof, never know what to write.  My whole life I’ve considered myself a writer.  Not in any way, shape or form on the level of professional writers, and hell, not even as good as a lot of the blog writers I read faithfully, but when I need to […]
