If you are anything like me, time is always a hot commodity. Days are just busy, busy, busy. You need to work. You need to clean. You need to do laundry. You need to find some time to work out. You need some time with Jesus. And you need to cook. For me, that last one was always hard. I just didn’t like to cook. Mind you, I did cook. I even cooked well for my family, but I just didn’t like it. Years ago, I was even a stay at home mom and did not like to cook.
Whenever you are a parent, it seems like you are constantly on the battlefield of raising kids.
So, I’ve been trying to get back to posting on my blog. Summer has been fun and I am so behind. Well, here’s one reason. See picture above.
Back in the old days, it was hard to get things done at home because I had a baby on my lap. Can anyone relate? Well, now the babies are grown and this furry baby has decided she needs a lap too.
She cries and cries until you pick her up. Crazy Holly! Love her, but how can I write with this crazy critter on my lap? Answer: Not very well. 🙂
Well, anyway, I’m working on things and moving this critter along.
Anyone else have crazy, furry babies who need that extra lovin’ too?
I’d love to see and hear about them. 🙂
And, yes, Holly is getting a new life and I have a new blog post coming next week.
Woo hoo! Back on track!

Well, that sure went fast. 18 years of life, learning, and love at Norfolk Christian Schools and now, our youngest daughter has graduated and will be on to a new chapter.
I remember it like it was yesterday. I had this sweet, little, blonde-haired, blue-eyed treasure. I had just put her down to bed and I promptly called my mom.
Well, that was completely fun! This year, Abbey and I decided last minute to take a trip for Spring Break to St. Thomas. We only had about 3 weeks to plan it, so off we went. Read More
Back in the good, old days, okay, even just 20 years ago, kids went outside during recess and in the neighborhood to play games like Tag, Freeze Tag, Red Light, Green Light and more. Kids, especially girls, would spend countless minutes swinging or jumping rope. Even jumping rope on one foot. These games were a great break from school and were a great way to gather up neighborhood friends and just play. Very little equipment needed, just your body and mind.
She turned 74 on April 2. I can actually remember when she turned 40. She has always been beautiful and age is not a thief of that to her. She is the nicest person I have ever known and I know many, many people would agree.
To me, she is Mom. To many she is Mom, Grandma, Aunt Rikki, friend.
And there it was. I was driving out of the neighborhood, headed to the grocery store, when I spotted it. It was a familiar darkish-orange and yellow. It was shaped like a little car. It was a Cozy Coupe! It was sitting in the front yard of a neighbor and, to top it off, the car was smiling at me. I immediately had to take a picture. It brought back a flood of memories.
