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.

Today was my parents’ wedding anniversary. I had been feeling horrible all day that I wasn’t finding the chance to do something special for them or at least call them. I finally had the time and the opportunity around eight … Continue reading
Nearly three weeks ago our home was invaded by a small army of alien creatures. I supposed that I should clarify this just a bit. The “Alien Army” actually consists of two five-year-old, red-headed boys. When my sister-in-law first told … Continue reading
Right now I am thankful for…. A cat sitting on my lap A husband that never stops talking. (sigh…) Dumb kid movies leftover turkey leftover Cherries in the Snow (YUM) having my parents here today have I mentioned that my … Continue reading
