Storm Hits, Quest Prevails!
Published on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 by We live on the East Coast, which saw a significant storm surge from the recent hurricane this Saturday.  While at the grocery checkout on the worst day, the skies opened up and the rain came down. It was so heavy that a row of shoppers lined up under the roof outside, hesitant to race into the water and lightening filled parking lot. There was a mom with her daug...
Calm in the Blackberry Storm
Published on Tuesday, August 18, 2009 by The art of patience.  I may not be a master, but I'm pretty darned close.  That is what many say.  You are so PATIENT.  Perhaps I'm too much of a pacifist.  When I see someone in public yelling at a sales clerk or screaming at their kid it is almost painful to me.  I would much rather keep quiet then stir up trouble.  For many, this would be considered a fault....
How Do You Hold On To Your Heaven?
Published on Sunday, August 16, 2009 by My heaven is in Corolla.  Do you have a heaven? In the last few weeks, times have become hard.  School is approaching, which inevitably brings work, stress and more work.  School physicals. Medications.  Doctor's prescriptions.  New uniforms.  New high school clothes.   All three kids need two pairs of shoes.  Haircuts for the boys.  A few hundred in scho...
Happy Birthday To My First Born
Published on Thursday, August 13, 2009 by Sixteen years ago to the day it was Friday the 13th. To add to the excitement, there was a meteor shower and a full moon.  How do I remember this?  It was the day my first child was born. Today this son is sixteen years old.  SIXTEEN YEARS OLD.  And what a ride it has been.  From 8 months of screaming and multiple doctor's visits to food allergy and digestive ...
Trading New Shoes for Catholic Schools
Published on Thursday, July 30, 2009 by When I was young and childless, I used to look nice.  I was never one of those women who had to have the right outfit and shoes, but at least I was presentable.  It was fun to get a new outfit or two, and I usually had at least three pairs of shoes to choose from. That was then, this is now.  For now I have three children, all attending private Catholic schools....
Rocky Raccoon vs. Dottie the Dog: Raccoon-1 Dog-$240
Published on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 by While we were in Corolla last weekend, my dog was at home putting her life on the line while single-handedly going head to head with an unnamed animal with teeth.  Sharp teeth.  This remained completely unknown to her caretaker and therefore unknown to me.  Sunday night Dottie met us at the door wiggling and wagging, just as she always does.  I reached around h...
My Roller Coaster View of Love’s First Kiss
Published on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 by My oldest son is all about sports.  No time for girls.  Just sports.  This makes me a Happy Mama. BUT My 13 year old son - he is a different story.  He is the "middle child."  He is unique.  He is funny.  He is an actor.  And... sigh... he "has a girlfriend." Last year during the final few weeks of school, my son announced he had a girlfriend.  My he...
Life Changes as your Teenager Grows
Published on Friday, July 17, 2009 by Today I have been contemplating how things change as your children become teenagers. They aren’t better or worse, just different. I’m not talking about the big things – the obvious things. I’m talking about little things that were always the same and are now just different. Case in point. Medication. Remember when antibiotics were always the “pink stuff?...
Finding Happiness in this Stressful World
Published on Monday, July 13, 2009 by I couldn't sleep last night.  I was tossing and turning with my mind racing.  How will I pay for the high school text books this year? When does that big tuition check arrive for the elementary school?  How can I raise that $600 I need to make the appointment for my daughter's dental surgery?  Tomorrow I have to go to work after being off for so long.  Will the k...
On Vacation, UNPLUGGED!
Published on Sunday, July 5, 2009 by No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I'm on vacation!!!  Sun (ummm, rain too), fireworks, sand... and an occasional internet signal from the house next to us.  So here I am, unplugged.  As a matter of fact I'm typing fast, knowing my signal will drop soon. I'll see you later this week with lots of great stories to come... and I swear... I WILL get up ...
Night Frights With Spider Bites!
Published on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 by I remember many a night staying up until the wee hours, nursing sick children until my eyes were practically crossed.  Then comes the morning and you have to dig deep to simply function the following day.  Yes, I remember it like it was yesterday.  Wait!  It WAS yesterday!!!  And today, I am a walking zombie.  I'm too old for this!  We are leaving for vacati...
Making Memories with a Dirty House
Published on Friday, June 26, 2009 by I have no groceries in the house, I have clutter and dust everywhere and I need to go to the pet store.  Last night my daughter spent the night with Grandma - a first time away!  My middle son is at scout camp (sob!) - so it was just me and my 15 year old.  All day I planned how the evening would go.  I would run to the pet store first, then get groceries and fina...
