Home again…

Reindeers. Ew. And a bit about girls.

Last week. Last week? Yeah. Last week. I chaperoned a trip to the zoo… This me and my shoe (CONVERSE!) on the bus… The kindergarteners went with their 4th grade buddies. I have such a cute pic of my Lucy with her buddy, but I don’t know the mother of the buddy to ask for […]

What do you mean by SUBSCRIBE? Do you have a magazine?

If you are a blogger, or if you know what RSS or “embed” means, then this post is not for you. This post is for the friends and acquaintances when after I say words like “subscribe” or “URL”  they look at me like I’m talking from my second head. Since I only have one head, […]
