My hubby’s not a time traveler but I feel like he plays one in a movie. Sorta. 🙂 I guess I should explain, LOL! For those of you who aren’t familiar with the book TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE by Audrey Niffenegger (movie opened this weekend) – here’s the basic premise. Hero/Henry has a genetic defect that…

My husband returns from a 2 month TDY to DC on the very day I leave for a writers’ convention in…. yep, you guessed it…. DC. I can’t decide if that’s just life’s irony or the Air Force displaying a wicked sense of humor. 😉

Confession time. I’m not as good at recycling as I would like to be. I’m an unorganized person to begin with when it come to physical space. So the idea of separating my trash into multiple bins sends my ADHD brain into overdrive. (I can barely keep track of when it’s trash day in time…

Meet Sam!

posted on June 2, 2009 by Catherine Mann

Don’t underestimate the power of the quiet ones! Our old beagle Trooper was a quiet fella who didn’t pay any attention to our most social dog Sadie. So when Trooper died, we underestimated the impact it would have on Sadie. After we lost Trooper, Sadie quit eating and searched for him in the house compulsively….
