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

I come from a family of singers. So it was really no big surprise when I answered my phone last Thursday morning and was greeting with a rousing rendition of song. This went on all day long. Interspersed among happy … Continue reading
Shaun and I were snuggled in our bed, he with his iPad and I with my kindle. I was deeply engrossed my novel when I was abruptly pulled from my tale. I sighed, thinking Shaun was getting ready to regale … Continue reading
Every time I look at the home screen on my phone, I have to smile. The photo is of a chubby two- year-old hand proudly holding up a wriggling worm. This, of course, makes me think of my dad. Now … Continue reading
My dog Sam has an uncanny sense of time. Every morning he feels the need to wake me up just to let me know that my alarm will be going off in exactly fifteen minutes. He starts out with a … Continue reading
