Are We There Yet? (October 2012)

Need inspiration for your pumpkin-carving?

Every year our school has a "Pumpkin Night" event, sponsored by the Girl Scouts, where students and families are asked to tap their imaginations to create unique pumpkin designs.

Awash in plastic

I am not a coffee drinker.

Never liked the bitter taste, despite my deep affection for its cousin, chocolate.

But I am addicted to iced tea, and for years, I happily plunked down $1 for 16 ounces of Lipton’s “Pure Leaf” tea in a bottle.

We are now the proud owners of a recliner.

A gen-u-ine La-Z-Boy, dark brown microfiber.

Yep.

This is our new normal. Along with blood glucose screenings, heart monitors and endless trips to the clinic.

Our family had a life-changing moment a month or so ago, when my husband was hospitalized after a heart attack and assorted complications.
