This past Saturday I went grocery shopping with D2 in tow. He was restless and trying to escape from the cart's child safety belt as the checkout clerk loaded our cart up with bags. Observing that I clearly had my hands full, the bag boy asked me if I needed any help out to my car. I told him, "No, thanks. I got it."Just the other night, I was putting D2 down for bed with our…Continue

My boss, a retired Navy admiral, likes to tell this joke about a conversation he had with his wife:
Her: You're the General and I'm the Major.
Him: That's great! Sounds good to me.
Her: Right. You make all of the general decisions and I make the major ones.
I love this joke. It got me thinking though. I was talking with a good friend the other night…Continue

Dear readers, I'm back! I've just returned from a fantastic vacation to California to visit my family. It was quite the adventure getting there because it was D2's first plane ride. To say I was nervous about travelling across the country on my own with a toddler is an understatement. At almost 20 months, D2 is very active and loathes sitting in his car seat for more than a…Continue

“Every day is a fresh beginning, Every morn is the world made new”
Today I am took my kids and my mom with me to visit the eFoods Global warehouse in Salt Lake City Utah. We need to see where the food is made! I think visiting the headquarters is important. (My kids groaned that it would be boring!) Even though I have already heard that eFoods is made carefully without hydrogenated oils and is of fine quality, I would like to see for…

Cheers! Summer is officially here. And based on the weather here, summer didn't want anyone to forget it.
It was H-O-T all week.
After weeks of back and forth warm-and-then-cold-rainy-days, summer is here full throttle. And I'm excited that our tall, seeding grass will die back soon, so I can perhaps breathe clearly again. Sniff sniff.
