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

On Wednesday, I posted to my Facebook Page that the national news proclaiming that we we all on the brink of freezing to death here in Seattle, was greatly exaggerated. Yes, we had a lot of snow, the power had … Continue reading
I once knew someone that loved to wrap gifts. Seriously, she would collect and beautifully wrap boxes all year long in preparation for a present to give someone. She firmly believed that the the packaging was the most important part … Continue reading
“Hi Mom!” KT said as she came into the kitchen fresh from a shower. “What’s for breakfast?” “Breakfast?” I asked, “Um…how about coffee?” “Mo-o-o-o-o-o-m.” My daughter hadn’t even been home from college for a full day and already she expected … Continue reading
Despite the fact that we are going to the home of some friends for Thanksgiving dinner, I have been busy creating vegan options for my family to dine on. One of the things I decided to experiment with whip up … Continue reading
