Travel

Who doesn’t love to travel?  We take one family trip a year to Ocean City, MD in September.  My husband and oldest daughter are into going to car shows and one weekend a year there is a major car show down there that we all attend.  It’s not just fun for them, its fun for us all. There is so much to do there.  They have miniature golf, the shops on the boardwalk, and my favorite, the beach.  I love…

Thoughts From My Teenage Daughter

Thoughts From My Teenage Daughter

“Boy, when you’re dead, they really fix you up. I hope to hell when I do die somebody has sense enough to just dump me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me in a god damn cemetery.

Nobody.” – The Catcher in The Rye Honestly, this quote makes a lot of sense to me. Mostly…

Ramblings of a Worn Out Mom

Ramblings of a Worn Out Mom

What am I thinking?  I am thinking that I have no idea what to write about this week.  I have been sitting here, in m living room, lap top open for an hour now, and I am at a loss.

All morning, I’d drop whatever chores I had…

Prepping for a Cat. 5 Hurricane

Prepping for a Cat. 5 Hurricane

How does one prep for a category 5 hurricane with kids?  There hear about it all over the place.   We live in south FL and have been preparing for the storm for a week now. The kids were very scared at first when the weather forecasters said it is a category 5.  We talked about what that means, what destruction it can do.  We had the kids make lists and start packing what means the most to them as…

Kids, Cars & Pools

Kids, Cars & Pools

Another touchy subject.  I have to wonder… 17 Month Old Found in Pool   I saw this on my local news this evening.  The parents of this poor baby are able to walk around, go to the store, go to work, and continue living as best they can without their little one.   18 Month old Left in Car Parents get arrested and charged for accidentally leaving little kids in cars.  However, parents who neglect to watch their young children…

Family Day Sunday

Family Day Sunday

We try to spend one day a week together.  The week is busy with work and kids activities.  It’s important to take one day a week to have as family time. We spend our one day a week together going shopping, watching movies, playing in the yard, or going to car shows.  My husband, teen, and 5-year-old are really into Volkswagen.   What activities do you love to do with your family?
