  Sure, Thursday is a day to be thankful for many things. It goes without saying that most of us are thankful for our family, their health, our health, all the blessings in our lives (no matter how hard they sometimes are to find), our friends and our pets and the roof over our heads. But […]

*This is an edited and updated version of a post from 2013, because even though a year has passed, my addiction never will* I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (and again next year…and again the year after that…), the day they set up the Christmas corner at Target is one of my […]

Merry Christmas!!   I know, I know, it’s not Christmas yet. Not just because my 12 year old has been counting down the hours until Wednesday morning for the past three days and doesn’t think she can bear it that time isn’t moving more quickly, but also because I’m still giving myself carte blanche to […]
