Recently I had to go through a lot of old photos and videos, and boy has it got me feeling old! Not only did the boys look so young, I looked so much younger than I do now and I only went back a couple of years. Not that it matters. It was just something I […]

Yesterday was glorious. A Sensational Sunday at its best! The stars aligned perfectly causing both boys to sleep in, and I enjoyed a quite morning by myself doing… what else … blogging.

Posted by 2 weeks ago 0 Comments 367 views

Note to self… Good job staying strong in the face of family ho-hums about spending Friday night at the park. No one wanted to go at first, more comfortable with the status quo of TV watching and video game playing but the initial grumbles wore off and then — shocker — no one wanted to […]

Yesterday’s Sensational Sunday

Posted by 3 weeks ago 3 Comments 388 views

Yet again I had the best intentions to post last night but I ended up sputtering out around 8 p.m.  even though I ended up staying up too late anyway. Sometimes I just get into this mindless mode where I’m not doing much of anything even though I want to be. I did finally pick […]
