Summer chores help kids learn that work can be fun!

Now that our two kids have been home for summer vacation for almost an entire month it’s turning into a free-for-all clutter fest around here! Super G. decided it was time to dig out the old chore chart idea. I’ve tried  making fancy ones in the past but everyone (including the mom-enforcer) usually loses interest […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Are you ready for Thanksgiving? I think I am! I’ve spent all day baking, chopping, mixing, tasting and rolling! My back is killing me and my feet are on fire but it will all be worth it when we sit down together with loved ones tomorrow and enjoy the feast! Pie made it home from […]

My Mom and Lee are moving today. Moving to town. Four miles away. Moving into a 3rd floor apartment. In town. Four miles away. I hate it. Can you tell this is going to be a rant? Sorry, but I need to vent. I’ll say it again just because I have to. My Mom and […]

Happy Birthday Dad, Memories are all we have
