How long does one week take?
Holy moly! This week is taking forever. And I'm not the only one who feels this way. All week, it has seemed like the week should be over, or almost over, and it hasn't been! ... Read more
Peanut Butter Burger??
For lunch today, I went with some co-workers to a restaurant called "The Ram." It is one of those restaurants that I don't go to with my family because DS can't eat anything there, DD won't eat anything there and DH isn't interested. Whatever.... Read more

It's hard to sleep when you can't breathe
I have a cold or a sinus something going on. It's not too bad as long as I don't change elevation. Or lay down. Or try to breathe. Actually, while I'm awake and moving around, I really feel fine. However, laying down last night proved to be ... Read more

Not the Christmas trip I was expecting
Most every Christmas, my family and I go visit my in-laws in the mountains. They live right on the Big Lost River, right up in the mountains and they always have snow at Christmas.

I like heels
The shoe variety, not the people-who-are-jerks variety.
Much of my short, young life (I might exaggerate a bit, but you can ignore that) I have been a tomboy. I grew up on a farm with two brothers. When my mom got "dressed up" to go out... Read more
