I have a love/hate relationship with my minivan.

I swore, SWORE, that I would never drive a minivan. And now, here is the sweet ride I tool about town in: (Truth in advertising – this is actually not my van, but looks pretty much like it. I was too lazy to go outside and take a photo of the van.  The kids would … Continue reading

While I’ve been gone…

Well, it’s been well over a month since I last posted. Things have been a little busy.  Ok, they’ve been stupidly busy.  Bear has started swim lessons again two night a week, as well as continuing with ballet on Saturday mornings.  The boys are requiring even more energy as they get older.  (There have been … Continue reading
