Give or take?

Do you like getting gifts? What about receiving them? I love, love, love to give people gifts. One of my favorite parts of Christmas is gift giving. I honestly have more fun watching people open the gifts I give them, than opening gifts myself, especially when it's something they weren't expecting. This Christmas my husband was the one I was able to surprise in a big way. He had opened all of his gifts, or so he thought, when I started looking around the room as if I was searching for something. I told him he had one more gift [...]

Whatta ya have?

When you were little, did you buy lunch in the cafeteria or did you bring a sack lunch from home? Every now and then I would buy my lunch, but for the most part I would take my lunch to school.  My mom packed the best sack lunches.  I always had a sandwich, some type of chips, a piece of fruit and her homemade cookies.  It was the perfect amount to fill me up for the afternoon and I never threw anything away.  She knew exactly how much food I would eat and that's what she packed. There was another [...]
