This morning when I opened my laptop when I arrived at work (we have state issued laptops since we do so much in the field investigative work) there lay a folded Crayola Color Wonder piece of paper (these things are wonderful and only allow my kiddo to color ON the paper). Scribbled in my… MORE

I decided that I spend way too much money at the grocery store. Good wine, cheese, fish, and my love of fancy exotic ingredients is eating (pun intended) a huge hole in my budget. So, I vowed not to go to the grocery store until February and I will now on only go once a month. I'll make the… MORE

Holy Moly! I can't beleive it's been since September that I've dropped by to say hello. At the beginning of November I started a new job. I still work for Child Protective Servcies but I am now a special investigator. This means I handle the worst of the worst cases, work an average of 10-12… MORE

As some of you know once a month I make dinner for my friend and her three children. Terri is waiting on a liver transplant and things just aren't looking good. She is now 10th on the San Antonio list but that could mean another year and she won't live another year. With flu season approaching… MORE

Tomorrow (9/22) is Oliver's first birthday. It's hard to believe that this time one year ago I was experiencing the worst pain of my life and had no idea how much my life was going to change. It's been an incredible year for both of us. I'm very blessed and still find it hard to believe that my… MORE

Oliver and I officially moved into the new house. (Yaaaay!) Every room is painted except two bathroom, the playroom, the foyer, and the edging in Oliver's room and the guest room. The fridge is in, I fixed the plumbing (by having a friend's husband do it), and the fake tint has, for the most… MORE

Yesterday marks the beginning of my favorite three months. Even in Texas, where it's still in the 100's I LOVE September, October, and November. I love the colors of fall, I love the leaves, and love the brisk mornings. I love Halloween and The Day of the Dead. I love Turkey Day and all it's… MORE

A very dear friend of mine has a rare genetic Liver disease and is on the transplant list. She has known for several years that it would eventually come to this but she has declined rapidly in the past 6 months. She was recently given a 30% survival rate for the next year. She becomes tired… MORE

 Well, I'm finally back in Austin and boy is it nice to be home, even if home is in the middle of a major remodel! Oliver has been visiting with my parents but he arrives this evening. It'll be nice to get our routine back. My brothers band, The Broderick, rocked the Forecastle music… MORE
