I’m not sure where this little vacation will take us. But our much needed reprieve from life will be just in time to catch the Joshua trees blooming. Spring hits early there. The Joshua Tree National Park lies directly in the path of two merging deserts. One more lush and green, where the Joshua trees […]

The “wrong” Wal-Mart

February 24, 2009

“Waste some money on this honey,” a man said as I whisked through the automatic doors on a mission to find Benjamin plane toys and a new car seat. His buddy laughed. “Were they just talking to me?” I asked myself silently. Then I looked up and around and I realized I’d just walked into […]

February 19, 2009

Oh snap. This is hard.

A reminder and a secret.

February 16, 2009

My man diet, I have realized, could be more than just a diet. In fact, the longer I go without one the less I want one. The “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mantra is now stuck on repeat. A problem I’m sure is very common for single parents. But is it really a […]

Pardon the Blog Interruption

February 15, 2009

My website is about to undergo another makeover. This will (hopefully) be the last one in a long time… so be patient and bear with us as we move things around. [Should be over by tonight] The guy behind the scenes helping me out is Brad, a WordPress guru and the master of my digital […]
