Not everyone can "get it". ;-)

I've been told I'm sarcastic, mainly by my husband, but I just call it an intolerance for stupidity. Not everyone can appreciate the utter brilliance of a sarcastic person.


I'm going back to school!......AGAIN!

Preparing Thanksgiving Dinner

My husband and I have been married for over 16 years, but this will be the first year we have cooked our own turkey for Thanksgiving. We just moved to the Phoenix area and we are having our own Thanksgiving dinner with some of my husband's family.

All of us and I mean Me, my husband's Aunts and his sister made up the Thanksgiving menu and divided what everyone was going to bring/cook.

We are having dinner at our house this year. I am to cook the Turkey, Cream Corn, Macaroni & Cheese and a couple of desserts.

To help with the stress of cleaning, cooking and preparing everything for our Thanksgiving dinner I am looking for easy recipes to cook in the slow cooker. I have found a cream corn recipe and a macaroni and cheese recipe.  Now I am searching for a good tasting way to bake a Turkey for about 20 people.


Pediatric Stroke Awareness Week!

My son Nick was born premature at 31 weeks. We now know Nick had a stroke before he was even born. His diagnosis did not come easy. 
Nick will be 9 years old this June. We are blessed because if you were to see him now you would never know he had a stroke. I thank God for that! 

Please help me & support World Pediatric Stroke Awareness Week!

Happy 15th Birthday to my baby boy!

On Feb 9, 1999 at 12:05am, I became a Mom. I didn't care about the hours of back labor or the pain I endured while giving birth. When I held that sweet baby for the first time nothing else mattered. Most of all, being a new mom meant opening my heart to a new kind of love. This little baby came into my life & he made me a better person. He made me less selfish. He made me a mother, and I love him more than words can say.

Happy 15th Birthday, Brent. You will always be my baby boy. I love you! <3 br="" nbsp="">

Snow Day 2014

We weren't really expecting too much snow here in the valley of East, TN. I dropped the kids off at school this morning. Came back home to get ready for work. As I was fixing to leave it had been announced that school would be dismissing early at 11:00am. It took me an hour to get the kids. The roads got nasty really fast. On the way home we slid several times. When we got to our road I went into a ditch. Kids were scared and in panic mode. We were all okay, thankfully. I am thankful for my firefighter of a husband for getting us out of the ditch and then up our driveway. My brother salted the driveway and drove the other vehicles back to the house. My hubby is working tonight at the fire dept. Everyone was called in because of the weather and road conditions. School has been canceled for tomorrow, so the kids are very excited about that. I will probably be working from home.
The kids and I got to play out in the snow for the first time in a long time. I just wish my hubby could of been here. Praying for his safety and all the firefighters, first responders, ems workers, 911 dispatchers, the men and women who salt the roads, etc who are out working to keep us all safe.
