He’s 77

In dog years. I love that he sleeps pretty much all day, unless there is another dog around, or you utter the words, “treat,” “squirrel,” or “go.” I say, “wanna go pick up Tiller?” and he is up like a shot, arthritis be damned! Knocks the screen door open by himself and goes out to […]

Time Warp

Tiller asked me whose hat this was, sitting on a shelf in my office. And I said, “Here. I’ll show you.” That hat always makes me smile.

The Bear Went Over the Mountain

Rollie was in his first grade musical last week. Okay, I don’t like to brag, but he was the lead in the first grade musical. I know what you’re thinking. . . where did that come from? He didn’t get that from his mama, that’s for sure. And you’re right. His teacher told me she […]

Honors Day

Rollie had his first Honor’s Day this morning. (It was mine and Todd’s too.) So cute to see all of the kids his age, and have their names called out and see them walk across the stage, shake the Principal’s hand, and then look out to find us. Also a little bittersweet, because my first […]

Like, so much that i am burned out, my psoriasis is spreading due to the stress, and i have finally started saying, “I can’t do that.” […]
