In the last six months of 2011, my family ate take-out more times than I want to admit. (I don’t even want to think about the times my 18 year old son went on his own, but I contend that no one should be held responsible for an 18 year old boy’s eating habits, especially [...]

You know, they say Southern women don’t sweat, we glow. I’m glowing in a whole new way at the moment. I’m sure my radiation oncologist would not approve of me saying that I’m glowing (don’t tell him, but I wouldn’t be surprised). The cancer in my breast was found early enough that I was able [...]
I’m not much of a joiner, never really been one to wear ribbons. I think I wore a red ribbon for AIDs awareness once. Maybe one fourth of July I wore a yellow ribbon to support our soldiers overseas–we have a lot of friends in the military. I don’t have a whole lot of patience [...]

I’ve been thinking about milestones lately. My oldest child just turned 16. HUGE milestone in life. He thinks he’s grown. We have to reassure him that as long as we’re paying the bills, he’s not…you know how it goes. In reality, his driving [...]
