Target is a DANGEROUS place for my wallet and my sanity.

Single Mom of 2 adopted daughters explains you never take calls in the shower.

Every year we do a Holiday/New Years letter.  This is it.  My daughter writes it... well not really.  Tis I but I say it is her...  because kids can get away with more.    So here you go (with a little picture of Grandpa from 2015  -- we so miss you.)

Happy 2018 everyone.

Me and my sister are doing great in school.  We are both very smart and humble. 

Mom won a trip to the Super Bowl this year....

Mornings are, well a nightmare around here.  Two girls, One bathroom, one or both ill as a hornet as soon as toes graze the carpet.  One theatrical performance after another.  Each worthy of a standing ovation.  

My drama queens.

So… earlier this week

In an effort to wake up Thing 1

Much like waking a bear

Food laden belly

In the dead of a winter’s hibernation.

I don't like bugs, ants, mice, or really any critter visiting us who was not invited.

But folks. But people, just Like Sarah Jessica Parker in I Don't Know How She Does It

we contracted from THE Elementary School...


(When the font is small. It is not so scary.)

The doctor said, "Look for a Nit."

Me, "You can see them?"

I like to work out.  So…  On a random Saturday, I go to the gym.  And... there is an area at the gym.

Stud City

Because boys hang out there.


I don’t go there a lot


It’s very testeroney

There is a lot of sweat

Frequent grunting

And a variety of machines and other entrapments of which I have no clue how to use.

But I tried it
