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.

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.

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.

Teens & Bedtimes

Teens & Bedtimes

Does your young teenage daughter have a bedtime?  Should young teenage girls have bedtimes still? First let me explain “young teenage daughter”.  By young, I am referring to the ages 13-15. I had taken notice that my young teenage daughter was staying up late (1-2 in the morning) chatting via text message and Facebook chat.  She is a good teenager with excellent grades, and my husband and I like her friends.  We just feel that she is staying up way…
