Saturday was Elliott’s basketball tournament. We live in a small town, so her tournament was not an all day, all weekend kind of event. There were only four teams in her league with a single elimination tournament. Being from a small town, every team had at least one of Elliott’s best friends on the roster. Since the start of the season, I think she had played each team at least four times, so she kind of knew what she was up against.

This is going to be a bit of a short post as I have once again been hit by the crazy stomach bug (my second this year already!) and even sitting here at the computer is taking up valuable energy. However, before I hop into bed I needed to comment on an article that caught my attention through the British Mummy Bloggers forum about one of the…Continue

I am watching the great blizzard of 2011 raging outside my window. There is a fire in the fireplace, homemade salsa simmering on the stove, and a glass of Irish whiskey within reach. Life can’t get much better. I had nowhere I needed to be today, and I have an appointment tomorrow, but if I don’t make it, it’s OK.
School was closed today and it has already been cancelled for tomorrow. I don’t think the girls have gone to school for a full week since before Christmas. I am…Continue

There were three things I promised myself I would never write about when I started my blog…first, I would never write about my mother…second, I would never write anything that would cost me a presidential election…and last, I would never write about sex.

Yesterday, my daughter Mary, who is 22, and I took Sandor out to play tennis. I've always wanted a child to play tennis with and now my hopes lie with my youngest boy.
As a pre-teen, Mary tried to play tennis, and several other sports, but they were all miserable and almost embarrassing failures. We laughed and had fun on the court but she was a beautiful, smart, spaz who refused to even…Continue

I spent the better part of my afternoon filling out a school application for Norrin. One application. Nine pages long. I took my time, printed as neatly as possible - even at the end, as my wrist began to ache. I needed his application to be perfect; the application was…Continue

If, like me, you are counting the days 'til Summer holidays take a hike, then you are also getting ready for the back to school madness that, somehow clings to my, almost 11, step-daughter, and probably, most children this age!
This whole back to school madness, with missed lunches, dog ate…

Jay blew into our lives like a whirl wind. He was my cousin’s fiancé’s cousin (kinda confusing, I know) and we met because my cousin lived in the apartment upstairs from me.
We started talking slowly – my car got stuck in the snow a few times and he would come down and get me out.
Then we started actually hanging out, and the first time he came over, we talked nonstop for 4 hours! It was great. I was actually happy when I was with him, and I felt so…Continue

After being out of work, and living on one income plus a small amount of unemployment, we decided that I needed to go back to work. Violet was older, she was more adjusted and a little less clingy. We decided to
give it a try - again.

It’s the beginning…
It’s a tragic story. A community up in arms, frightened for their children, as one small body after another turns up. Flattened like pancakes. Stiff, furry tails sticking straight up in the air, a grim marker of a senseless death. You see them every day, littering the streets & sidewalks, while mothers scurry past shielding the eyes of the innocent children in tow, hoping to protect them from such a horrific sight. Along the grassy boulevards, little furry sentinels keep watch, like an…Continue
