Yesterday I went to a conference for work about becoming a happy, confident woman.  I wasn’t expecting to come away with so much to think about.  One thing we really focused on were our goals.  It raised some very good questions that I have been forced to consider.  Am I doing what I want?  Am […]



Tonight’s Gonna be a Good Night

I have a high school classmate that has a 2 year old son.  He has an undiagnosed condition that lands him in the hospital quite frequently.  I follow what she posts as a way to lend support from afar.  I can’t imagine all that she is going through, physically and mentally.  She also has two […]



The Little Things

I find myself already saying “Remember when things were easy like….”.  Laura is only 4 1/2!  I shouldn’t be saying that already!  I know that I’ll say it even more as she gets older.  As a result, I want to chronicle the simple things today that brought so much joy.  The day started great.  Laura […]



What “home” means

Home has a different meaning to many people.  To some it is their house.  To some it is where their family is.  “Home is where the heart is” is a common saying.  To me, it is all the above.  Robert and I lived in a house together before we were married, and for a year […]



10 years from now…

Where do I see myself in 10 years?  This question used to be so easy to answer.  When I was in high school, I answered with graduated from college, married, have 2 kids, and teaching in my own classroom.  Well, 3 out of 4 isn’t bad.  Now that I’m 28, the question is harder.  I […]



A Child’s Attitude

I was thinking yesterday morning about how great Laura’s attitude with life is.  She wakes up happy most mornings.  If she isn’t happy right away, she either needs time to wake up yet or is sick.  Like I said in my previous entry, she has a memory of an elephant.  However, she seems to remember […]




Before I get into Silverlicious, I’ll back up and recap Friday and the doctor appointments.  I was feeling fine Friday morning.  I called and cancelled my appointment since I felt it would have been a waste of time for the doctor to look at me.  Warren’s ears were still a bit cloudy.  We changed him […]



Slow Learner

I guess I didn’t learn my lesson at Christmas.  I went to a margarita party last night.  While drinking and playing Apples to Apples, I ate.  I ate, and I ate, and I ate.  My munchies included peanut butter M&M cookies, honey roasted peanuts, cashews, almonds, and a pumpkin dip.  Of course most of these […]




Here is my list of things I am thankful for.  They are in no particular order.  These are just what came to me.  I may edit and add more. health – I wasn’t always healthy.  I am so thankful that I have been cancer free for 10 years.  I am also taking steps now to […]




I have just finished watching Sex and the City.  The entire series.  At one point towards the end, one character Samantha gets breast cancer.  It is caught early on and everyone in the show believes that Samantha will be fine.  At one point, Samantha and Carrie (one of her best friends) are sitting together talking.  […]
