Today, I woke up and finally cracked seeing all these people I know and care about being left in such dire circumstances. As painful as it is to watch it is even harder for them to go through. Last week I was thinking about starting work and getting Nash his new glasses. This week I … Continue reading You fooled me, Harvey.
Alright alright, Nash didn't actually hop on the school bus but he did start one day a week last month at his brother's preschool. As I mentioned in a previous post I was overwhelmed with a range of emotions when I dropped him off that first day. I hadn't expected to be so sad but … Continue reading No Big Deal.
My eldest son Jack asked me yesterday "When is kids day?" I said, "Kids day? It is kids day every day". He laughed which made me think that he knew this already. As you know or may not know it was American Mother's Day yesterday and I had been playing the it's Mother's Day today … Continue reading Kid’s Day

It is a day where I can intentionally take a breath, be aware … Continue reading Something to be thankful for
It is election day today, it is the day you get to voice your opinions about those in power and choose a candidate who speaks to you. Many people my age or younger are abstaining from voting as they don't like the candidates or they don't think it will make a difference. I looked at many articles … Continue reading Election Day
My boys and I took a little trip when I say little I mean a 10-hour flight across the ocean to the motherland. We made it in one piece, my sanity still intact looking a little disheveled and covered in various crumbs and stains from the hundreds of snacks my kids wanted to eat. The … Continue reading Across the pond
I started writing a post about glasses a while ago and then abandoned it in my drafts section most likely because I found something else to write about.

This came through my email this morning and thought it was worth a share: The Albino Code Dennis Hurley is a man with albinism and in 2006 he released a short movie, The Albino Code, a parody of The DaVinci Code which he wrote and starred in.
