  • The Five-Year Familyversary
    on Sep 16, 2015
    Well, it's been almost a year since I posted.It turns out it gets harder to post as your kids get older.  It's not the lack of time (though that doesn't help).  It's the interest in privacy.  If I write about how kiddo X is struggling...
  • A Day Without Touch
    on Oct 13, 2014
    If there are even five people out there left who ever check in on my blog, please visit the link below and check it out.  It's a worthy cause - and it's a good reminder that as human beings, we thrive on contact with others. Click here for more...

    Last fall, Jason decided to do the Couch to 5K program, and I joined him ('cause he invited me).  We did Susan G. Komen 5K here in San Diego (to benefit breast cancer).  My time was terrible.  I don't even remember what it was.But I fe...
  • A Glimpse Into Her Future
    on May 15, 2013
    In April, Marcie received her First Eucharist.I'll be honest - it didn't come without a few tears, some raw throats from shouting and some slammed doors. Our church does a homestudy for the second grade sacraments.  And I like that.  The bo...
  • Happy Mother's Day!

    We've had a lovely Mother's Day here in the S home.We started with breakfast out, where everyone got to try a little bit of everything from fried eggs over easy and chocolate chip pancakes to biscuits with gravy and cinnamon rolls.  Then we head...
  • Marcie and the God Squad - Breaking Free
    on May 5, 2013
    My kids attend public school.  That's by choice.  So I was a little surprised to hear about this recent encounter Marcie had with some "friends" (and, yes, I guess I use that word lightly).  The interaction went something like this:Mar...
