Courtesy of CRUISEAMERICA.COM, we embark on another insane road trip tomorrow.  We are renting an RV to drive to Orlando.  Sound crazy?  Well…we are pumped.  Our kids can pee without pulling out the gallon jug and we can even fry an egg while cruising down the highway.    Let the blogging begin 🙂 🙂 🙂

conscience



The most thought provoking question I have been asked in a long time was by my son, Gage.  “Mom, does everyone have a conscience?” Of course, my first reaction was everyone has a conscience.  Whether they decide to use it is entirely another matter.   But the question stayed with me for several days.  Shortly before […]

destruction

Honestly, it doesn’t look as if it is. […]

grandma frannie’s hat



I wonder what my Grandma Frannie would think of her grandson doing a jig with one of her hat’s on?   Perhaps he will break the mold and be the first man to join the Red Hat Society.

a sign of spring



I think my neighbor was surprised to see me knocking on her door for a large tuperware this morning after I saw this HUGE crawfish crossing the road while I was running.  I felt compelled to bring it home to my sleeping children.  I mean how often do you see a lobster-sized Crawfish crossing the […]
