I don’t worry about his academic progress. I know he’ll continue to excel. His father and I somehow hit the jackpot with Owen. We never have to nag him to do his homework or study for tests. He has excelled in every subject, although his handwriting could use some work. (Who am I kidding? I have zero room to talk in that department).

  • ‘Find a new place to live’

    “Find a new place to live.”
    I was disgusted when I read that phrase on social media Sunday afternoon.
    I was even more disgusted by the fact that it was one of my friends who used it.
    The person was referring to the immigrants who are now, thanks to our new president, being banned from entering the United States. Approximately 500,000 of them are legal permanent residents of this country who might be banned from re-entering the country if they left, or if they’re currently abroad.
