My best girlfriend is Eva. We met each other in junior high school and grew closer with every passing year. We’ve probably been friends now for about 27 or 28 years. Yikes! We were good friends in junior high, but we didn’t get to that “best friends” place until we were in high school. We […]
Ooooh. Ahhhhh. Fourth of July musings.
HH really wants to see a big fireworks show and be as close to it as possible. I am not a big fan of crowds (not that he is either) but we will have to find a happy medium. I am also not a fan of traffic, so I hope it is close by. We’ve […]
Smells (and sounds) like summer!
As a child, I defined the beginning of each new year as the beginning of each school year. January? pfft. Every kid knows that the real first month of the year is September.

I would occasionally play them with my sister, but only long enough to set up and organize Barbie’s household, then I didn’t want to […]
May I give you a little advice? No? I’m going to anyway.
Every Monday, Kasey at All That Is Good has a post called Friend Making Monday. The idea for today’s post is to list the best advice you have ever received. I don’t know that I’ve ever had an “ah-ha” moment where someone dispensed advice and I took it. You know, the kind of advice where […]
These are a few of my (least) favorite things….
Tyrone Wells (one of my favorite singers) has a song called The Hate Song. It’s a funny list of things a jilted boyfriend has compiled in order to make himself feel better. Things I hate, in no particular order: 1) People Who Don’t RSVP I have actually put “Please let me know as soon as […]
