    An 11 Year Old That Acts Like An 11 Year Old

    Nothing Went As Planned ......

    Today, NOTHING went as planned, and what a treat of a day! I'll name 5 things I loved about today, but I could give thanks for more.... 1.) An unplanned call from a dear friend. We laughed, then laughed some more. I sure needed to laugh and it was a joyful exuberant release...

    I was dreading going in to work today. I was unsure how I was going to handle seeing a person who had mistreated me and my family horribly. I thought it would be awkward...I thought I might punch her in the nose and get fired...I thought I might curse her out...I thought a lot of...

    Boys And Girls Club

    When my daughter started middle school, I signed her up for the girls and boys club. She has only been in school a week and she is already playing chess, various sports and today received a free eye exam. They are right on her school campus and she totally loves it!!!!

    Make Up

    Actually I guess it is not really a little thing self esteem is really pretty huge...and I am thankful that my daughter has enough self esteem not to wear 10lbs of make up. She is rocking the natural look with class instead of looking like an indian preparing for war
