Jealous, Are You?

“Let’s go shopping!” When most people hear those three words they probably think ‘retail’, but not me. I don’t much care for malls and their high-priced/trendy merchandise. I do however occasionally like to hit the estate sales. For me, it’s kind of like a treasure hunt and sometimes if I’m up early enough and am […]

Squeaky Clean

Load the dishwasher.  Run the dishwasher. Unload the dishwasher.  For a homeschooling family of six, it seems to be a never-ending job and until recently, it was a routine that happened at least 3 times a day.  But since my oldest is recently married and establishing a home of her own, and child number two […]

Setting Aside Offenses

I was scrolling through my facebook page the other day and happened across a post from an old friend of mine. He’d shared a news story and added a simple comment, but his innocuous remark unintentionally set off a firestorm of criticism.
