a follow up to: “to or not to…”




i know i have y’all hangin’ ~

wonderin’ what was IT ~

what could IT have been…

after hours  (actually 15 minutes) of debate and spreadsheets,

calculations and picking mom’s brain,

it seems it was an extra-large with two toppings ~

spicy Italian sausage


green peppers

there was,


a mystery…

a mystery still weighing heavily on my son’s mind…

a mystery sauce


origins unknown…

oh dear,

i can only hope and pray it was tossed!

same two words….


every year

i ask the same two questions,


every year

the answers never change.

for the first i ask

“How was your day”


with one word

the answer is…….



the next one is simple –

“So, what did you do”


i would expect a little more explanation


he never strays from his usual response


with a tired sigh

he says……




you can imagine my surprise,

on the first day of school

when my typical inquiries were made ~

a total of five words

popped out of his mouth ~

i was stunned,

i was shocked,

i was amazed!


i just about back ended the car in front,


thought I was going to faint ~

when the words




spilled from his mouth,


his 16 (almost 17) year old brain!


i have nothing more to add to this piece

because i am still in a state of shock,


i will say

THANK YOU for reading,

i must get back to work now

i am being bad ~



i am still on the clock!!!

status update: a guy, a movie, a beard


left side – kinda


right side


left side – full

Well today is the day – the film is complete and being submitted this morning and then it is placed into the hands of the faculty.   He is a very tired young man and he is swamped with work.  (After all, he is in college – a double major of, not just film, but business.)  His school year is winding down… he will be home next weekend…then he gets his wisdom teeth pulled!

I must say, I am liking the editing beard.  I told him that his face is now hairier than Pee’s!  I wonder what she will think?

my son –

oh mom –

i haven’t shaved in two weeks


my son –

what has kept you so very busy?


oh mom –

it is all the filming and editing

it has become life itself – it is my movie!

so very proud to be…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold



behind the wheel

September 2013

  – this is truly THE moment –


behind the wheel of a car!



band boy

September 2012

The first football game of the season – walking to the stadium.  Peyton’s debut in the SHS Marching Band.  Needless to say, he was nervous and not all too happy that his mom was walking right behind him trying to take a picture 🙂


I really could not choose one photo – I love these both.  For me they signify “a point of entering” – there was excitement, nerves, anticipation and, yes, there was a lot of hard work being part of a marching band of over 300 teenagers!

Yes, a complete set and with Sydnee Pee a balance has been achieved.  Much laughing, cooking, eating and ‘cleaning’ to be had with lots of tum tum, walkies and cuddles.  Life is good.
