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.
That’s So Yesterday

This morning the dogs woke me up. They were whining to go outside much earlier than I wanted to get up. (Granted, one could hardly fault the dogs, as it was a few hours later than I usually am up, … Continue reading
When Shaun turned thirty, we threw a surprise party for him. It was such fun to sneak around, gathering his friends and co-workers in order to celebrate him. Shaun enjoyed himself, but hated that we all made such a fuss … Continue reading
Ok, maybe we weren’t speaking of serendipity, but we should. It’s got a great meaning and it just feels good saying it. Try it. Let it just roll out of your mouth ser-innnn-dip-it-eee. It helps if you play by saying … Continue reading
Last week, Carol of Northwest Ladybug made a post that’s been clanging around in my mind for that last few days. (I hope you are happy Carol!) Basically, she wrote about how she had started to second guess herself about … Continue reading
