The Five of Us, Spring 2014


to the first bidder! Just got word today that the house is sold! Yippee! One more thing to check of the list. Praise God--it's a huge relief (especially since I don't have to keep the house immaculate anymore!). Yay!

Talk To Me

I blog for myself and my kids and I would do it even if no one else cared, but I do like to hear from you (and think it's a wee bit creepy of you to voyeurize us without my knowing it). So, please leave a comment from time to time, or email me anytime at Much obliged, I'm sure.
