Living…uh…driving in a van down by the river…

I’m like a broken record. If you tell me you are looking at a new car. If you post about your car search on Facebook. If I even get an inkling that you are car shopping, I will tell you about a fantastic auto program that saves you big $$. The program I continue...

The Grand Opening…or So I Thought

What can I say? I was naive. It seemed perfectly plausible to me at the time. A new recreation center was opening in my town. So my sister and I decided to be the FIRST people at the opening of the recreation center. Seemed like an amazing idea at the time. We lived in a town...

Catching Up with #Supernatural Season 9

I rarely watch shows in real time. I only watch DVR’d shows. I go through the DVR every day or so and watch my DVR’d shows.  If I am not watching DVR’d shows, I’m watching on Netflix. Unfortunately Netflix doesn’t have every show or even every movie in stock. So I watch whatever shows...

Following, Not Leading Your Child’s #JourneytoCollege

My oldest child is a trailblazer. She’s my “out of the box” thinker. She does everything her own way. She’s the child who informed me after a lengthy timeout when she was 7 that she would do what I asked her to do next time but only because I asked her not because she...

Getting a Good Night’s Sleep #FoodforSleep

If Bo (Jackson) knows football. There’s no doubt that I know sleep. Sleep and I go waaaaayyyy back. In fact, I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of times I have had insomnia…and I would still have fingers left. I put my head on the pillow and within seconds I am...

Zap! Pow! Kachow! #MarvelUniverseLive

Last week was rough. Busy. Hectic. Stressful. I barely had time to do anything extra. Everyone got to school, work, but that was it. I haven’t had a start to the school year this crazy in a very long time. Friday afternoon as each kid came home from school…I got back from driving carpool…and...

Start the Conversation with #GrabtheGoodies @GoFAAR @AskListenLearn

I can be an ostrich. I can bury my head under the sand. Sing La La La when confronted with a situation that makes me uncomfortable. But I’m an adult. I can’t avoid unpleasant conversations with issues that affect my kids. I need to remove my head from the sand, come up for air,...

#MarvelUniverseLive Comes to #DC

Finding a movie for all five of us to watch as a family used to be so easy. I would pick a Disney movie or another animated movie and everyone would be happy. Once my oldest turned 12 or so, her interest in animated movies waned. My middle and youngest were still game to...

College Days: Two Weeks In

Two weeks. Fourteen days. That’s how long it is since I saw my daughter last. Dropping her off at college seems like months ago. It’s not that the house is quieter without her. She’s a very quiet person. But even her quiet, reserved presence is noticeably missing from the hub bub of the house....

Is It a Bird? Is It a Plane? No! It’s the Superman Hall of Heroes! #EverydayHeroes

Growing up I saw very few movies. My town had a one-screen movie theater that was used only 50% of the time. The other 50% it was a theater for traveling or local theater productions. When a movie played, it played for weeks. I had to go to the next city to see a...
