He better drive a lot slower than 55…!

Yesterday my youngest son earned his driver’s license. This makes me very happy, horribly nervous and proud. But mostly nervous. My son is wonderful. He really is! He is smart. He is polite. He is a tremendous athlete. And he is also a moronic 16 year old boy. It’s the last part that scares the […]

I love the Real Housewives. I watch all of them except New York which I lost interest in Season 1.

Most of it is contrived, and in my opinion, one step […]

Actually I lied. It was a few months prior to that when I met the girl, but 20 years ago today that she agreed that we would give this thing a whirl and see where it takes us. I think we both made the right call. In life, love and all things that take time to blossom and become […]

This High School thing…I don’t want to say we were dreading it the second time around but our oldest made it hard to have hope in the situation. The four years we spent confined to that campus felt like a prison sentence. Nothing was easy. From grades to carpool he fought us every step of […]

Oh boy. I really fell off the NaBloPoMo wagon. Life got busy, days got shorter and frankly, I didn’t really have anything to say. Last weekend our Labrador Retriever Bruin, got really sick. So sick we had called for an appointment to put him down. But I think he heard me on the phone making […]

Yesterday was a blur of iPhone updates (Thanks Jimbo!) Haircuts for the nephew (he wanted to look like this guy. I think we nailed it!) A trip to the beach (Thank you gorgeous Southern California weather!) And a holiday boat cruise (Thanks Dave & Margie!) So by the time I realized it, the day had flown […]

Living Life One Calendar Event at a Time.

I’ve been busy trying to juggle all of life’s expectations. The beginning of school is always rough. No matter how organized we are, how much we plan, there is still a learning curve. Add in a new PTA position, a new 5 day a week job, a new pool across town for swim practice and […]

As summer fades away…

Summer isn’t what it used to be. Back in my day everyone got off on the same day and went back the same day. Now it’s all over the place; some went two weeks ago, some are going tomorrow, some are going after Labor Day. Whatever. I can barley keep track of my own kids […]
