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.

Everybody knows that when you go on vacation, you aren’t supposed to get sick. Well, almost everyone knows that. It seems that Shaun didn’t get the message. Late yesterday afternoon, he started feeling a little under the weather. He thought … Continue reading
My oldest daughter left the house shortly after the Crack of Dawn this morning to go on a seven mile hike with a couple of her friends. The hike itself, while a bit challenging, doesn’t bother me. I know KT … Continue reading
This afternoon, I needed to make a quick stop at Costco. I usually go by myself, but today I drug my kids along with me. For some odd reason, my girls thought that the oversized shopping carts would be perfect … Continue reading
