I have always been fueled by stories. The first story that fed me was The Wizard of Oz.  CBS would air it once a year and, from one year old, I would watch.  The concept of fiction meant nothing to me.  Dorothy and her friends and the Wicked Witch with her winged monkey were as real […]

It’s almost pathetic to admit that, only two weeks out from Winter Break, I’m beyond relieved to have a 3 day weekend.  January is no joke in our house with both kids playing basketball, as well as all the other activities!  We have no big plans this weekend, though.  My son actually has a 4 […]

It’s been a crazy week here.  I was hoping that this week would be a bit calmer, but no such luck.  I have come accept that life I will pretty much be running around like a chicken with its head cut off until Spring break.  Oh well…such is life when you are raising two active […]

What an re-entry to the real world week!  My kids kept me running and, coupled with some appointments for myself, and I barely had time to breathe!  I had great plans to crank out a couple of posts this week, but it just didn’t happen.  I can’t say it was a bad week–it was a […]

It’s a new year and it has been over 6 months since my last Weekly Reads post!  I’m going to do my best to stay on top of this one in 2020, so let’s all cross our fingers! As in the past, I am linking up with Kathryn at Book Date and her It’s Monday…What Are […]

Wow, 2020.  Can you believe it?  I always feel helpful at New Year’s and I pray that this is the year that things turn around in this country (and the world). I had seen something on Facebook about starting Avengers: Endgame at 9:23:30pm on New Year’s Eve and, if you do that, Tony will snap his […]

One of my blogging goals for 2020 is to have more regularly-themed posts.  Personally, I quite like top 5 (or 10 or whatever) lists as I feel like it cuts down on all the work that I have to do.  So, I’m going to be devoting Fridays to a variety of my own top 5 […]
