Just a few random facts about me............

1. I was blessed to be born into a family that loves each other-no matter what
2. I was blessed to marry into a family that prays together and supports each other-no matter what.

5. I have to have a latte and /or a piece of dark chocolate EVERY week.
6. For years my dad would come to my house EVERY Thursday and spend ALL day with me and my boys. He would make lunch and I would run an errand or two. I miss him so much. He was a rock.

9. I think newborn babies smell like heaven.
10. I love to cook and bake-I got addicted to Food Network during my labor with Zach which was 26 hrs. That includes 3 hours of pushing while my mom was yelling at my Doc to give me a c-section. Thanks Mom.

15. I did the "I can'tdecide what to major in" 6 year B.S. program. I still dream that I have one more test to take. I have a degree in Psychology, by the way. Nursing and Music school were not for me.

This is a journey not a race.................

tell someone you love that you love them today~ don't waste a moment being mad or regretful.

Logan and Jazmine

I have always loved animals.  Just ask my mom~countless times growing up,  I would come home with a pitiful stray . Even in college I would have a bird, hamster or kitten to take care for.  Taking care of animals and people is just who I am.. Logan and Eli seem to gravitate most toward furry friends.  Zach tolerates them. besides our chocolate lab, we have a beautiful cat , Jellybean.  Jelly rewards us often with a fresh kill-bird, squirrel, mole even an occasional lizard or snake.   Jazz is almost a year and a very bouncy dog.  She really wants to be a good dog and I think she will be one day.   Logan really seems to like her and she loves him.  Especially when he shares his cookies with her.

Medication Warning!

I have noticed some drug companies charge to do patient assistance program paperwork for clients.  As a former director of a non-profit that does this service free of charge, I have a problem with this.  People that really need this service can not afford to pay for this service. Nor do they need to!
Dear friend, please be careful, some companies charge close to $100 for this service.  There are many non-profits who will do this paperwork for free.  You can also do them yourself .  If you need help, ask a nurse in your doctor's office. A minimal fee of less than $10 per Rx is understandable if you can afford that. Click on the comments for more info from my good friend Suzanne.

Zach and Eli working together

Zach getting some help from Eli in maling film canister Rockets. You would be surprised at how high (over 15 feet) the top flies! They worked well together and had a great time watching what happens when chemicals react!
My boys love to do science experiments and usually learn something in the process.

Logan at Grandma's

On Christmas Day, we went to my husband's mother's home around 11:00. Zach and Eli had awakened their baby brother aroung 7am so when we arrived, Logan was sound asleep. We laid him on the guest bedroom bed where he slept through lunch and into gift unrapping time! Everyone checked on him every few minutes, and we were all excitd when he finally lifted his curly little head. He was excited to see his grandparents, unlcles, aunts and all his cousins. He had a great day and was a joy to be around. He had a great time later with my side of the family-but tuckered out around 6. He managed to stay out of the pond and loved his new car!
