Another Water Crisis

February 10, 2014

I had a great weekend. On Friday, we accompanied my friend, Linda and her son after school and saw the Lego movie. I am not a huge fan of kid’s movies, but in my opinion, this was a really good one. We saw it in 3D and the boys loved it! Then, on Saturday, we […]

Happy Birthday McDaddy!

November 14, 2013

One of the things that I’ve always loved about McDaddy is that he looks for every opportunity to help others.

I have said many times here on the blog that he […]

Passing The Test

March 4, 2013

I am sitting on my big, blue, bloggy couch staring at my computer screen. I am at a total loss regarding what I should write about today. My weekend was chock-full of excitement, but unfortunately I’m in one of those moods where I can’t seem to pull my thoughts together. Though I could talk about the fact that […]

November 12, 2012

I woke up to several posts on my Facebook wall thanking McDaddy for his service to our country. I was humbled to think that several of those posts came from blog readers I have never met. If you knew McDaddy in real life, you would know that recognition or attention is the last thing that […]
