A Few Observations…

My daughter and I went ice skating at the mall the other day and I had a few observations.

1. It’s really hard to keep both yourself and a 5 year old upright on ice skates! Full body workout!

2. There’s nothing like witnessing a display of terrible parenting to make you feel better about your own skills. 

3. Boy, the mall is sure full of good people watching!

Why, hello!

I’ve been thinking lately that I might dust off this little ol’ blog and get it going again. Not for fame or fortune or trend-setting…I really miss having my own little space to share my thoughts. So here I am. Hello again, old friend.
