The latest tragedy in Moore, OK really got me thinking about all of the little things I take for granted on a daily basis.

Graduation has come and gone and I seriously cannot believe just how fast it all happened. Everything went so smoothly and I honestly didn’t cry as much as I thought I would.

Earlier this month my husband and I went on a rare date night—a welcome and much needed outing. I had wanted to see several movies released during the holiday season. Which one to choose?

This week I have given Adam an ultimatum: get two letters of recommendation by this Friday or there will not be any video games, IPods, cell phone or TV this entire weekend. I have been asking the boy to get two letters since school started in August and I am done waiting.
