Be A Bridge Builder

I have a favorite bridge.

(Is that strange? To have a favorite bridge? People have favorite sweaters, favorite books, and favorite foods. But do they have favorite bridges? Ha! Well, I do.)


I love the Waterloo Bridge in London, England. I was able to learn a bit about the bridge's history while touring London, and it quickly became one of the neatest structures I've ever seen! It was the first (and the longest) of three bridges built on the Thames River. It was originally built in 1811, but was later closed in 1923 because it was considered unsafe to cross.

What Do I Know?!? (Not A Lot!)

Today, after answering all of my daughter's questions about puberty and periods and "hair in weird places," I realized something that gave me pause...


Lilly will be eleven next month!

ELEVEN! Eleven, eleven, eleven. When did that happen? HOW did that happen? She is growing up too quickly.

Cockroaches And Courage!

I once peed on a cockroach.


Seriously! No lie! It. Was. Frightening. It was an experience I will never forget! (Especially since that disgusting creepy crawler was the size of a cat!)
