Flying Solo!
Published on Tuesday, June 8, 2010 by I’m back!  Did you miss me, because I sure missed you!  No internet this weekend – the beach house totally unplugged.  I cheated a little bit tweeting from my phone, but other than that it was complete (and much needed) downtime. What a different beach house weekend, too.  My daughter had her first friend there, my middle son didn’t come and my mother w...

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...
The Ocean Never Really Leaves You
Published on Tuesday, May 26, 2009 by This weekend, we were at my mother's in the Outer Banks.  Our home away from home.  Paradise.  My children were raised on this beach.  We have had ups and downs there, just as one has at home.  From many a stomach flu to many moments of hysterical laughter... from spotting deer and fox behind the house to watching fireworks shot directly above us... from huge dou...
