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.

Saturday morning, Mimi, like hundreds of other kids across the country, left to take her SATs. I have to admit that I was just a bit melancholy about my baby girl taking these tests. I sat down with a cup … Continue reading
We’ve just brought our KT back to college and all I can think about is soap. Cheater soap to be exact. Yes, I know you must be wondering what on earth soap, of all things, has to do with bringing … Continue reading
