The other day I finally got to see Heavy on Demand. That show made my kids and me think about what kind of lives those 2 people live. We decided that they probably are not very happy. It is scarey to see what those people live with every day.... Read more

Time flies when in a fog. Kind of how I have been feeling lately. Seems like all I have been doing is what needs to be done and no time for sparking. I haven't been able to decide if 5th grade or 12th grade is harder and more stressful. B... Read more
