Patience

Our new bird is so cute!  Not having parakeets for years has made me forget how pleasant they are to have around.  JJ chirps and sings, and even when he’s quiet, he’s adorable to look at.  My husband (who is not known for his patience anyway) mentioned the other day that he’s having trouble with …

New Baby!

Made you look!  Did you think I was going to say we were awaiting the arrival of our 5th child? No such luck – probably wouldn’t declare it for the first time on a blog anyway.  I just wanted to share my son’s first professional haircut that made everyone joke about him being a different …

Kid Rock, Really?

I just might have to start calling myself a Kid Rock fan…  ok, no not really, that’s going way too far. It all started when I was able to catch a few minutes of country music radio – a rare treat for me because when I’m doing errands in my car every day, I’m usually …
