Bridget is growing and constantly learning new tricks. One of her best ones is counter surfing.  use the other day I heard loud cursing as Kate discovered the dog had eaten her lunch….stealing it off the counter.  Yesterday it was laundry.  Bob had folded a literal mountain of laundry, it was spread all over the bed in neat piles.  Bridget decided that looked very attractive, so she curled up in the middle, making a nest in the middle of the clean folded clothes.  Bob found her, chased her off, and refolded the clothes; putting them away this time.  Then he started finding socks.  One at a time, spread all over the house.  No holes in these socks, but in the weirdest places:  Under the table, in the bathroom, and even in her dog bed were socks.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
