I just found out last night that my kids don’t have school on Monday because of Columbus Day. First of all, WOW! I should really look at the calendar. We would have been standing out at the bus stop at 8:45 completely bewildered. Second, didn’t we all agree that Christopher Columbus was an evil imperialist [...]
There are times you run across a scene in your home and you don’t even want to know what led up to it. This was definitely one of those times.
Dear Grace, I remember what the doormouse said, I just have no idea what to do with that information. Love, Sarah
Did I ever tell you that one time a psychic told me that I would marry a man whose name began with the letter “G”? That was about 18 months before I met Gabe. Creepy, right? Then again, she also told me that I would live in the Pacific Northwest and work in textiles, so [...]
My children believe in God. That isn’t that big of a deal except that we aren’t very religious people. My children believe in God and they like to tell me that. A lot. Sometimes I think they like to rub it in because I am an Atheist, and while I support their beliefs I’m not [...]
Last night I dreamed that I started smoking again. It was such a realistic dream that I can tell you exactly how many cigarettes I smoked. Three. I woke up feeling terrible about myself. When will this stop? My Mom quit smoking in 1980. It has been almost 30 years and I remain under strict [...]

I blamed paranormal activity (not the movie, but the phenomenon). That all stopped when we got a new tv. Coincidence? Probably not, but [...]
Let me preface this by saying that I am done having children. I have two wonderful kids. I always wanted two children. I have two children. I had a loss and then a really difficult pregnancy. I had to have a blood transfusion when I gave birth. I had spinal fluid leaking in to my [...]
Every day my children get dressed. Every day they put their pants on backwards and their shoes on the wrong feet. On purpose. About 50% of the time they will also put their shirts on backwards. Is this some sort of preschool trend I know nothing about? Is Kris Kross making a comeback?
Can anyone explain to me why if my kids are in my car they have to ride in a car seat but on a school bus they don’t require any restraint whatsoever? How in 2009 do we have school busses* without seat belts? And why are we all okay with this? ___ Don’t get me [...]
