The Counselor’s Office

This morning I got to start my day in the counselor's office at the middle school. M2 is being defiant and well we can't have that at school. Yes she is defiant at home but I have better resources than the school to get her back on track. So at the crack of the school... Continue Reading →

A Maturing N

I am not sure how people feel about divine intervention but I for one am a believer in it. No I will not get all preachy on you but here was one instance this week that let me know somebody upstairs was looking out for me. I went to see my kids nurse practitioner about... Continue Reading →

Baby Shower Blow Ups

Trip to France

I did it. I actually let the kids for 10 days and took a trip by myself with my Army buddies. It was fun and exhausting and as I sit in the airport waiting to go home I am hoping they missed me as much as I missed them. The trip was a tour of... Continue Reading →
