Hey, did you know that breast cancer exists? You do? Great!
So this happened: my daughter got her heart broken by her Internet boyfriend.
My son's advancement to first grade means both my children have homework most nights. And, people, I am telling you now, I am having trouble.
Last night, when I inquired about homework, my son quickly said he didn't have any and tried to hide his homework folder so I couldn't look inside. Naturally, this rang alarm bells.
I have been repeatedly challenged on Facebook to name 10 books that have stayed with me over the years.
With last week's starting of school, my family has had to re-jigger our mornings so that everyone gets to where they need to be by the ungodly hour when the sun just begins to rise.
My favorite place this not-so-warm summer has been on our back porch, which was built onto the side of our house as an apparent afterthought.
If the temperatures are rising, it's a given that cars will be packed and folks all across the country will be taking their version of the Great American Vacation (™).
As a child, I imagined what kind of a home I'd live in when I was out on my own. It would be tastefully furnished, with matching couch and love seat and it would perpetually be tidy.
