In a nutshell
A Slice of my Life is my take on two teenagers, one husband and a whole slew of critters. Life around here is never boring!
Shaun (also referred to as my Beloved): Computer Nerd, WoW Geek and all around Nice Guy. (although sometimes I have to wonder if he's really just a 12 year old boy trapped in a 40 something year old man's body)
Kt-The Teenager: Our oldest daughter, college student, vegan, volunteer, high achiever with a goofy side.
Mimi-The Feisty Redhead: Still our baby girl, high school junior, Drama Queen, artistic and culinary inclined.
And then there’s me, Susan The one who adores them all! I hope you enjoy all the antics that go on in our little slice of the web.

“Are you sure you guys don’t want to grill tonight?” texted my oldest daughter Kaitie. “Um…were we thinking about that?” I replied. “I was!” She was right, we have been having a glorious winter here in the Pacific Northwest. Today … Continue reading
This morning I heard my oldest daughter KT get up and ask the dogs if they wanted to go outside. I smiled at the thought of being able to sleep in for a little while longer without having to get … Continue reading
Yesterday I was wondering what to write about. I set about really paying attention to my day in order to have something interesting to say. I came up with a couple good ideas…enough to last me a day or two … Continue reading
