Well Mama: From Worn Out to Early Morning Workout

When my kids were small, I desperately wanted to go to the YMCA regularly to exercise, but it seemed like the odds were stacked against me. One kid would be sick (can’t leave the house). Or I had been up all night (yet again) with my non-sleeping son and hardly felt up for a trip […]

Gardening: Therapy for Mamas and Fun for Kids

I have learned to plant things that grow well in our climate. Colorado’s weather is dry and mostly sunny. Plants that need a lot of humidity don’t grow well here.

Why I have a Will-2

Unfortunately, my sisters and I had to start talking about Dad’s funeral.  It’s hard.  Really hard.  Trying to decide what to do when he passes.  As we’re wrestling with some decisions, I’m really really glad that a few years back I hounded him to make a will.  I have one, and (I don’t think) I’m […]
