The Trip Story, Part 4

August 26, 2009

On the Friday after the Wednesday night when we finally got home, we took off again. This time Benjamin and Murphy were stuffed into the back seat and we were driving John’s car instead of Fiesta Dave.

Brave or just crazy?

August 25, 2009

I had lunch with a fellow social media diva extraordinaire yesterday. Known online as Advergirl, Leigh Householder, is just as awesome as you think she would be.

August 23, 2009

John Bear jumped out of bed at 7:00 am to feed Fiesta Dave’s meter. We’d parked in a haze of exhaustion.  After spending the entire day in New York City we hit a monstrous traffic jam on the way into Philadelphia. Between reading our iPhone maps and asking cab drivers which turn to take next [...]

The Trip Story: Part I

August 17, 2009

We got lost on this road, three times. Twice in the dark and once in the daylight when we were running on empty and desperately trying to find a gas station within 10 country miles. We finally did thanks to the kindness of our cabin host who happened to be on the road just as [...]

My Super Hero (a Contest)

August 15, 2009

Every one of us has a super hero inside, waiting to come forward, to save the day, to keep going in spite of the odds, to change a life (whether it be our child’s or our own). I know this because I can see it in my son’s eyes. I know life will take a [...]

Trippin’, Part 2

August 13, 2009

When I meet a single and childless girl I feel an urge to sit her down and have a talk – like a grandmother would. No, honey, not that one. I don’t care how cute he is or how much money he makes. No, that doesn’t matter. He may be whispering in your ear and [...]
