    Various Thoughts

    A spot for sharing your thoughts on a subject

    1. Graduation, Guests, and New Records...

      Well, this past month flew by, our Oldest ds graduated with Distinguished Honors & was also honored at the Elementary school where he's donated more than 1,000 hours of his time in the last 2 years to mentoring kids in 2nd-5th grades. The book the kids made him to send him off to college brought tears to my eyes as many of them begged him not to leave ...

    5. Another Excuse to work more . . .

      This past week was a doozy for us, dh has been working really late hours (until nearly midnight a couple of those nights), oldest ds has also been working quite late - in fact the managers at the restaurant decided he was ready to "Close" for them. Needless to say, I was less than impressed with having to stay up until nearly 2 in the morning just ...
