Love is a garage door opener

So tomorrow will be my 20th Valentine’s Day with my husband. We started dating as kids, Seth had just turned 17 and I was 15. As my son likes to tell the story, we got married because I borrowed Seth’s napkin. That very first Valentine’s, we’d been dating 5 whole months, we wound up at … Continue reading

Hello, Dad?

After a day which I will simply call “trying”, I was feeling über organized tonight.  Homework done? Check.  Supper in the oven AND crockpot (it was baked potato bar night)?  Check.  Kids soaking in the tub while their father “supervises them” (i.e. periodically listens for signs of drowning and/or roughhousing while reading an article about … Continue reading
