Monsters Incorporated

For some time, Bunny has been experiencing a reoccurring nightmare.  She dreams monsters come in our house and eat our entire family, except for her.  She is left alone with no parents, no home, and no place to go....…See More

Rooster Reality

Late last summer, I wrote a blog, Rooster Envy, in which I described my general love for all things chicken and about a beautiful eight foot rooster I had found in Amarillo, TX.  With four months to go until my birthday and Christmas, I dreamt about that…See More

Knit One, Pearl Two

I like to think of myself as a crafty person.  I can cross-stitch, needlepoint, make stained-glass, sew on a button, and hot-glue anything as well as Martha Stewart, but there has always been one craft project that I miserably fail at…Knitting. ...…See More

A Matter of Convenience

Growing up in small town America through the 60’s and 70’s, we never had a convenience store in our town until I was a teenager.  Before the Country Market opened their doors on the edge of town, groceries were purchased at a small IGA store on Main Street, gas was pumped by an attendant at a co-op oil company,…See More

Forgotten Lunch

As a parent, I have three jobs.  My jobs are to love my children, keep them safe, and to teach them about life.  I take my jobs very seriously.  So when Hunter walks away from me in a parking lot, I grab her arm and jerk her back to my side.  If my yelling makes her cry, maybe she can understand my fear.If I hug my…See More

Something Unexpected

The courtship with my husband, Colby, wasn’t typical. It wasn’t boy in bar + girl in bar = boy meets girl. As everything else in my life, meeting Colby wasn’t that simple. Our meeting was the stuff movies are made of....ContinueSee More

The Pink Invasion

It’s that time of year again.  The leaves are turning, the temperature is falling, and the over commercialization of the pink ribbon has started.Yes…it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, that time of year when every product in Walmart, Target, and the grocery stores decorate their packaging with a pink ribbon.  I don’t mean to sound…See More

Going Home

Home is where the heart is.  But, for my daughters, their hearts aren’t just under my roof.As internationally adopted children, I know a part of them still resides in their birth countries.  As they grow up as red, white, and blue Americans, Elle is still Russian, and Bunny is still Guatemalan.And I love that about…See More

Beer Money

I love my husband for many reasons, one particular reason being his interesting philosophy on life.Take for example his theory about “walkabout” money.  Colby believes that besides having lipstick and a driver’s license in a purse, there also needs to be hard cold cash.  Not that he carries around a purse and lipstick;…See More

If I Knew Then What I Know Now

With a daughter in middle school, I am reminded daily that being 13 is the worst age to be, followed closely by 12, 14, and 15.  I’ve often said there isn’t enough money in the world to convince me to redo those awful years.I see Elliott struggle with self-esteem, body image, and with social awkwardness.  This is an age…See More

Im Just Sayin'

I hate the phrase, “I’m just sayin’.”  It all started with a 30-something, passive aggressive, former colleague.  She would always use it after she appeared to be playing devil’s advocate in a debate.At first I found it humorous, but after repeated uses, I found it condescending.  The more our working relationship…See More
