So I said to myself, “Self…you have been sorely neglecting your duties as Mayor of late…”. Myself responded with a rude gesture & a string of expletives that made even me blush. Then I was clocked over the head with a calendar. A sad reminder that September is looming, & with it, the two things I struggle with the most…the loss of my babies back to the school system, & the impending arrival of… Continue

I recently had quite a tiff with The Baby. My own fault, really. I should just know by now…but I didn’t give her the credit she deserved. You see, she’s a frikkin’ genius…no question in my mind. Yet, I forget this at times, given how wee & adorable this kidlet is. So you’re thinking to… Continue

Does that look like the face of a High Schooler??? NO! Of course it doesn't. He's not OLD enough to be in high school! He's just 1, damn it! He's my baby! How can he be going into HIGH school?? I'm not old enough to have 2 teen agers in high school. And yet, here I am... Barely in my 30's (by barely I mean pushing… Continue

I am a lawyer…kind of. In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit I have never practiced. Not a day. It’s not because I couldn’t find a
job…I didn’t even look. It’s not
because I didn’t get good grades…United Missouri Bank (UMB) thought I had a
promising career in estate planning.
It’s because I wanted to be a lawyer…but I didn’t want to be a lawyer.…

Every week, my 7 year old, DJ, has to memorize a bible verse. As a pastor, it pains me to say this, but he hates it. Tonight, for whatever reason, he was a real bear about it. But one thing that's cool is as DJ learns it, so does the rest of the family. Tonight, I had to laugh, when DJ started
out of frustration & Andy spoke up & finished the verse for him. Here it is, in case you wanna learn it too:"Don't let anyone make fun of… Continue

Over the past several years, Colorado families have been the beneficiary of the growth of online high school options. Colorado online high schools have proven to be a valuable education choice for
many students and their families who are looking for an alternative to the traditional school setting, whether because of learning style, life or family circumstances. For many, virtual high schools have meant the difference between giving up on school or graduating.
When students and… Continue

Happy 2010 everyone!!! Boy did 2009 pass quickly??? It sure did. I miss blogging on all my ning networks. It sure is a great way to network. I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Years. We sure did. Most of my immediate family was sick, but that didn't stop us from celebrating.

I found an old crush from elementary school. I didn’t find him on Facebook. I did it the old-fashioned way. I road my bike passed his house seven times a day until one day he finally came out to get his mail and I said, “Warren? Warren Beatty? Fancy meeting you here!”
Okay. Not really. That’s the OLD old-fashioned way. I internet stalked and I found my first Asian crush with the famous American actor’s name when I was doing research for a manuscript I was writing. I was hovering over… Continue

Ok, so here’s the deal. I’m not exactly as vigilant as I should be about what my kids watch. I tend to watch something, get seriously into it, and then when it’s too late, notice my kids are with me watching it, and it is TOTALLY inappropriate. Bad news. Well, this bad habit has come back to bite me in the ass in a somewhat disturbing, yet totally hilarious way. %
Here is a pic of my son’s latest homework assignment, front and back.…
