The Big Bang Weekend.

I haven’t set foot in a roller skating rink for years, (mostly on purpose), but I sure as heck will this weekend, twice!  Most of our mornings look like this. My kids are having their birthday parties, SEPARATELY, yikes whose idea was that? The big bangs are already starting.  Mom, I don’t want to go to a BOY party and I don’t…

Dreaming of Deutschland.

OK, so don’t blame me if I want to go back to Germany. I know, yesterday I wanted to live the life of the Jetsons cartoon and now this.

They keep me company while I work on my blog and attempt to find freelance writing jobs. Here there are basking in the morning sun………..It’s amazing…

We…

November Birthdays–Double Digits

  This is our month for birthdays. My twins were born in November, I remember it well, as I was in the hospital on Thanksgiving Day. Seems like a lot of their classmates were also born in November. Lots of sleepovers and parties to attend as most of them hit the double digits – 10 years old. For the first time we are having separate parties, boys one day and…
