by Gina Valley

Youth soccer is the root of all evil.

It seems like the perfect children’s sport.

Everyone can play.  The rules are simple.  Only basic equipment is necessary.

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon bonding with your family.

After The Trip Up The Aisle

After The Trip Up The Aisle

This week The Professor and I will be celebrating our wedding anniversary.   I have now been married longer than I was unmarried.   Sometimes, it’s hard to even remember what life was like in my pre-ring era.  Other times, it’s easy.

Oooo! Look At The Pretty Lights!

I’m trying to follow my doctor’s orders to take the weekend off, and to rest and relax.

Gotta tell you – it’s totally stressing me out!

Nonetheless, I am, in an effort to follow his directives, making today a Throwback Day (I must admit I am very close to making it a Throwstuff Day, too.  I’m not good with the whole sit around thing).

Perhaps you’ve noticed.

For example, around our house, mom (me!) includes something green with every meal she prepares, even if it’s just chocolate kisses in green foil wrappers.

It Was Kind Of A Quest

It Was Kind Of A Quest

We just spent hours rehabilitating our kitchen trash can.

Yes, it’s old.  Yes, it’s dented.  Yes, it’s scratched and the lid doesn’t close right and the foot pedal came off.  Yes, it’s really beyond repair.

We just can’t.

We can’t afford it.  It costs too much.
