I posted this story once before but I thought about this incident this weekend so I thought I’d repost: Memory Lane Monday takes us back to 1992. My hubby and I were in the relatively early dating days. I suppose I should make sure you know that my hubby and I never actually lived in […]

Can you pinpoint a single moment in time where you made an awful mistake? I’ve made many mistakes in my life….  too many to name each. Some of them, though, still haunt me. I think I can honestly say that the mistakes I’ve made as a mother are the ones that I can’t forgive myself […]

Halloween Memories

on Oct 26th 2009

Do you remember your favorite Halloween costume as a child? Or as in my case, any of your costumes as a child? I honestly don’t remember any of my costumes except one.  (Sad, huh?) One year my sisters and I all dressed up as old fat men. We wore mens’ shirts with ties and mens’ […]

Once again….

on Mar 26th 2009

… I have to say “Thank you Lord for NOT giving me boys!” Last night as I watched (and heard from inside our hotel room) a bunch of 6th grade boys running up and down the halls, being ….. well …… boys, I was reminded of the time many years ago when I was working […]

Monday Memories

on Mar 2nd 2009

I’ve often mentioned how much I love music…. and how certain songs will carry me back to a certain time and place in my memory. The thought of that leads me to ask: Have you ever smelled something that made you think of someone or something in particular? Polo Blue smelled on any man makes […]

Static sucks

on Jan 26th 2009
