I am finished reading another great book called “Snow Escape” by Roberta Goodman. I have been following her on twitter for a few weeks and I had seen several posts regarding her book. I sent her a message on Twitter and asked her if I could review her book. She said, “that she would be honored if I reviewed her book.” This book is full of twists and turns, leaving you wondering where the author is going to lead each of the characters…Continue

Every New Year, thousands of people (if not more) make the resolution to get fit. They sign up for gym memberships, buy workout DVD’s, and order the latest and greatest gadget from a slick infomercial on TV. And usually about this time of year, several weeks in, a large majority of these same people let the…Continue

As much as I loathe winter weather, there truly is something magical about the first snow of the season. Those white flakes falling gracefully from the sky always bring an unexpected peacefulness in my otherwise chaotic world. And being able to share that special moment with my kids makes it all that more memorable for me.
We got our first snowy dusting just this…Continue

The morning was hectic; we were running late. We had finally pulled into the parking lot of the elementary school when I looked down at my son's feet, clad in clunky snow boots.
"Your shoes are in your backpack, right?" I said.
"Ummmm," he answered. I sighed. He had forgotten them. Again. The shoes I had put right by the front door were probably still right there. Why couldn't he remember?!
"Sean!" I said sharply. "C'mon! You need to work on…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

It is snowing in Kansas. Finally. I have had to endure the national reports of all my friends as they talked about falling snowflakes, shoveling drives, and building snowmen. Seriously? I think they brag about their white stuff just to make me jealous.

I think of myself as a pretty creative person, decent at crafting and creating. Apparently my crafting niche does not extend to the making of gingerbread houses however. First, I made the icing way too thin, so it took me 3 days and lots of strategic propping to get the house to stand up. I decided not to even attempt to prop up the chimney, so the kids and I put it aside ate it. Then, I made the decorating icing too thin so most of our candy decorations were…Continue

I rolled out of bed. I could feel it in my bones and down my spine. It wasn't necessary to peek out the window but I needed to confirm with my eyes what my body was already telling me. It snowed last night....
