A Solstice Story

As i mentioned briefly in another post, I have been a little stressed out. A little anxious. Todd and I decided to go to the lake this weekend to blow off some steam and relax. And by relax, I mean relaxing in the time-honored Palmer way, which is to work your ass off to near-exhaustion […]

Don’t Puppydog It

I have been putting this off. Every day since Pop died, I have thought about the fact that I haven’t written about it, and I have put it off another day. It has kept me up at night. Some nights it has almost made me sick. I know that it is normal to have some […]

Think Happy Place. Be in the Happy Place.

I have periods where I don’t feel like i have anything to write about, and then periods where i have tons of things to write about, and no time to write about them in. This is one of those second times. School. Newsletter. Work. Renovations. Soccer. T-ball. T-ball tryouts (he’s five! WTF!), doctor’s appointments. sigh. […]

Our Vacay

Went to the lake for a week for Rollie’s spring break. I unplugged for a week – no internet for over seven days. That was kind of strange, but much-needed. We had a nice week, although we only had one warm day for the kids to play in the water before it turned freezing. So, […]

Phew! I’m Back.

You might be wondering what happened to me. Spring Break happened to me. Rollie had a week off from school, so we took the kids and went to the Lake for a week. It was nice, at least for a day or two, then it was freezing. Anyway, we got back yesterday and I am […]
