The Clean Laundry Room

Learning to do your laundry is one of those life management skills that all youngins must learn in order to live independently. I learned from my parents and my kids have learned from me. I always trusted what my parents taught me. But, we…

Superbowl Sunday Bites

I am not a fan of any sports teams. My husband and I prefer to just watch well balanced football games and we often root for the underdog. But for some reason this football season, I became very fond of those New Orleans Saints…
