I Have a Serious Question, You Ready for It?

See?  I told you it was a serious question!  This is the second time I have had to clean out melted crayon in my dryer.  The first time he did this, it was an orange crayon.  I had no idea it was in there until I saw a really cool surprise when I opened . . . → Read More: I Have a Serious Question, You Ready for It?

Do you ever take a blogging break? Why I took a bloggy break

Sometimes you just need a break.  I was never intending to take a break really.  It just kind of happened.  And I would never intend to be away as long as I was.  Until today, I think my last post was back in September and that is totally unreal for me.  When I first . . . → Read More: Do you ever take a blogging break?
