I don't know about you but having kids also means having germs, in excess.  Three kids in school just means more chances for more germs!  Typically, February is the month my family is sickest- somehow we escaped that this year, although all three kids had pneumonia over Christmas.  I'm always up for finding new ways ...

Spread a Little Love Today…and Every Day

spread some love on valentines day

// _ // ]]>_ // ]]> Happy Valentine's Day, friends.  Today is a day of love and kindness, friendship, romance.  It's a day that some call wonderful and others hate.  I myself have called it "Stupid Cupid" day more than once.  I realized I was looking at it wrong.  Valentine's Day doesn't have to be about having someone ...

me and dad

There are topics that are anything but pleasant to discuss with your loved ones.  It's not easy, nor comfortable, nor fun to discuss the "down the road" possibilities.  I'm grateful to my parents for having these conversations about long term care, and communicating their wishes to me and explaining to us WHY these  things are ...
