Funnest house ever

Wow. So school started and then lots of other things happened. All the things happened except me writing on the blog. Most have probably given up on me by now, but in the spirit of hating to give up altogether, I’m back. We recently had our annual visit from my brother, Joey, and his family. …

One more week

One more week until school starts and we are barely hanging on by a thread over here. Case in point, I am currently shut upstairs in my bedroom writing, pretending like I don’t hear the chaos happening below me. I started out strong, really, I did. The month of July was spent with Charlie and …

41 years

Today is my first day of being 41 years old. The newness of being 40 has faded and now it’s just “on to living the rest of this decade”. In getting together with a few friends to celebrate, I was trying to find the perfect place to celebrate 41; good atmosphere, not too expensive, good …

Paradise

Just a few days after school was out we packed our bags and headed to Hawaii with the Hirschman clan. I actually had a few people comment on our upcoming trip saying that it’s a bummer to go to Hawaii in the summer when the weather is so nice here. Really?! When is it ever …

Ferry Rides

Never say never

I have a good friend who decided to start running when she turned 30 and then proceeded to run a marathon. I’ve always respected people like that; those who try something new and then really get into it. She has since run many other races and on occasion has asked if I’d be interested in running …

He’s got my number

I remember my dad saying “I’ve got your number” several times throughout my childhood. This meant that he had me figured out and I couldn’t outsmart him. As I’ve grown up and become a parent myself I like to think that I can outsmart each one of my own children. However, I’m afraid Judah’s “got …

Two months

It’s been two months since I’ve written. How is this possible? It doesn’t really matter. I owe it to my 10 followers to never give up writing, no matter how many months go by of silence. Life has been crazy, and not just the ordinary crazy. Josie fell 15 feet out of a tree, which …
