Safety Tips to Prevent Your Dream Pool from Becoming a Nightmare

Whether it’s a cosy hot tub, a full-sized pool or something in between, having a private place to take a dip at home is one of life’s greatest luxuries. There is little that compares to shrugging off the day’s troubles with a few relaxing laps or a good book and the gentle massage of…

The Power of a Pedicure

There is something elemental about a pedicure.  Not the neon bright colors that often adorn the toenails, nor the callus grater they use to scrub the skin to baby-butt soft, it’s about touch.  Pedicures are about making a human connection.  That and the opportunity to have your toes look like a traffic cone.As a mother,…See More

Going on 13

...When people told me to enjoy the moments of her childhood because they grow up too fast, I rolled my eyes. As I first struggled as a single mother, then with her diagnosis of her reactive attachment disorder, there were many times her childhood couldn’t end fast enough. ...…See More

Pepe Le Pew

For the last few nights, Indigo (our 10 month old Aussie) has been on the nocturnal prowl, barking at anything that moves…sometimes all night.  I imagine she is trying to protect her territory from raccoons, possums, coyotes, and skunks.With the summer drought and winter in the air, these critters are becoming bold and…See More

The Wheels On The Bus

...I can’t sneeze, cough, or laugh without peeing my pants, twenty pounds have decided to take residence around my midsection and along my jawline, and today I forgot to wash my hair when I was in the shower.  Completely forgot, and then wondered why my hair felt…dirty…when I was styling it.  Alzheimer’s. ...…See More

Scissors and Crayons

Sometimes international adoption can throw a curve ball when you least expect it.When Elle was in the lower grades of elementary school, she brought home an assignment.  They had been studying the 50 states in school and how the states related to the students.  The worksheet was a map of the United States with…See More

The Boy Next Door

Living in the country has a lot of advantages.  It is quiet, there is plenty of room, and we have very few neighbors.  It’s not that I didn’t like having neighbors when we lived in town, it’s just nice not having to worry that someone will be peeking in the windows when I am dancing around the house naked. ...…See More

Monsters Incorporated

Posted on January 10, 2012 at 9:00am 0 Comments

For some time, Bunny has been experiencing a reoccurring nightmare.  She dreams monsters come in our house and eat our entire family, except for her.  She is left alone with no parents, no home, and no place to go.



Rooster Reality

Late last summer, I wrote a blog, Rooster Envy, in which I described my general love for all things chicken and about a beautiful eight foot rooster I had found in Amarillo, TX.  With four months to go until my birthday and Christmas, I…

I like to think of myself as a crafty person.  I can cross-stitch, needlepoint, make stained-glass, sew on a button, and hot-glue anything as well as Martha Stewart, but there has always been one craft project that I miserably fail at…
