  • Change of plans

    So, I had my column planned all week long. Josh and I thought it would be fun on Friday night, since there were no basketball games, to take Karli bowling for the first time. My friend from Georgetown had come down to the house to babysit Karli on Friday since her regular sitter was on a trip. She agreed that a bowling trip would be exciting. I love to bowl, so I was looking forward to it and I wanted to see how 3-year-old Karli would feel about the bowling alley.

  • Mother Nature provides some...

    It’s nice to be back on a regular schedule. First, was the early deadline for Christmas, which I missed! Then, there was the early deadline for New Year’s, which I barely made! Now, it’s normal again, at least until Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday!

  • Closing in on 3,000 points
