Rethinking Thanksgiving Traditions

I have always loved the Thanksgiving holiday. I love the traditional holiday dishes, the turkey, dressing, and good ole green bean casserole. I love the desserts. I love being so stuffed your tummy hurts and you have to take a nap – thanks tryptophan. When I was young, I loved seeing extended family, as well […]

Gone too young

When children are young, parents are the primary teachers.

“Preparing” for Hurricane Dorian

Sorry I’ve been distracted with Hurricane Dorian headed toward the eastern seaboard. You would not know from watching the sunrise yesterday what was swirling mere hundreds of miles away.

Happy Birthday Wolf 1

I’ve never been strongly drawn to having a tattoo nor do I dislike them.  I just […]

My pack of wolves, aka teenage boys, is going through a big change this week. My oldest son, wolf 1, is […]

Wolves with Wi-Fi

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Wolves with Wi-Fi post which is about my teenage boys that could at times be mistaken for having grown up in the wild.  BUT we have just spent a week snow and iced in together and O – M – G, I could really just stop writing […]
