After all wasn’t that the era of bell bottoms, platform shoes and leisure suits? I always thought bell bottoms were fair to every body type, no matter how big you were in the bottom, that severe taper and then the…

Somedays I feel like Darth Vader.

One for each school day. A photo of me. My kids have that effect on me, you know those days you’re constantly yelling out  orders and threats. Is anyone listening? Does Mommy have to dress in all black to get your attention? I do kinda dig the light sabers!                 You don’t…

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…
