Disney Girl’s Trip

Disneyland without the kids? It just seems so wrong. At least that is what I thought - until I tried it.   It's so wrong it just might be right! I just returned from my first Disney girl's trip, and there is just one word to describe it: magical. Going to…

Grilled Pineapple

How do you like your pineapple?  Most of the time I just cut it up and eat it, or add it to a fruit salad.  My family loves pineapple, but the last few times I've bought one it's mostly gone uneaten.  Since I hate wasting food, I thought that it…

Succulent Wall

I love Succulents. The temperate climate here in California is the perfect weather for them.  I have lots of them planted around the house. They look great in their pots and planted in the ground, but when I saw a beautiful succulent wall at a local restaurant, I knew I…

Why We Don’t Do Summer School

I start counting down the days to summer break as soon as school starts in the fall. Being a parent of school-age children can be exhausting. Being a parent of a child with special needs on a school IEP is a whole different ballgame.  Both of my children are on IEPs. …
