Folded Towels

Summer is over and my children went back to school yesterday. The first day of school is always an emotional and exciting time for me. My children…yeah, they are just excited. It is a time to reflect on the past school year and summer and also look forward to all of the wonderful things ahead.…

Hanes Her Way

I really want to discuss Karl Rove and the irony that he is bowing out now. Now that he and the current administration have made a complete mockery of our country, at home and abroad. But, I will choose instead to discuss the door people at Costco… If anyone works at Costco I really would…

Mickey Mouse Tortillas? I attended Information Night at my children’s school this week. As with years before, I was seated amongst the usual career moms, stay at home moms, dads in their standard issue hawaiian shirt.
