Hannah’s Home!

Hannah has been visiting Wenderful's farm in Idaho for almost TWO weeks! I have missed her so much. The longest she has ever been away from home (until now) has been overnight at her Grandma's house. She gets invited to "sleep over" parties and asks to come home at 10 because she wants to sleep in her own bed. So going away for this long, for her, has been HUGE. She and Trixie, our King Charles … [Read more...]

Childhood Flashback

There's something about being on a schoolbus that brings back vivid childhood memories for me. Maybe it's the smell - a mixture of old PB&J's and bananas. Or the sites - sitting up high you have a different vantage point. Or the feeling - being squashed in with about 100 other hot, sweaty bodies while bouncing around. Or the sound - of a hundred kids talking and laughing. Some of my best … [Read more...]

What About Bob — and I’ve fallen into a black hole!

A few months ago I wrote about how Hannah hates school. She makes up phantom ailments, outlandish excuses and pitiful pleading to get out of going. A few months ago, my father-in-law started coming over when Jeff is out of town and walking Hannah to school. She is so much happier to go when she knows he is coming over. ******** She found out that her grandpa's middle name is Robert, so she started … [Read more...]

Nostalgic Moment

BBQ+stringfellows+051[1]

Do you remember Saturday nights spent getting "beautiful" for Sunday? Long showers followed by getting your hair twisted into sponge rollers? Sometimes we would even be able to watch Love Boat and once in a while, if we had a babysitter, we would even be able to watch part of Fantasy Island! I remember mostly the feeling of trying to sleep on a couple dozen of those curlers all night. I think at … [Read more...]
