We all like to hark back to our pre-parenthood days; to sit and think of all the things we used to be able to do and the pursuits we at one time enjoyed. It is this harkening that often finds me on my laptop – almost always when I should be doing other, much more […]


Eating Crow and BTW

by Kimberley on March 1, 2010 · 4 comments

February flew by. I can honestly say I have no idea where that month went. I have never had four weeks slip by faster and it really scares me. March 1st brought an end to the Olympic games and began the count down to my back to work day or as I have dubbed it […]


The Dog Gone Truth

by Kimberley on February 22, 2010 · 9 comments

It’s the time of day when the sun is shining through my living room windows, illuminating everything and revealing things that only direct sunlight can.
