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

Shortly after school let out in June, Mimi started asking if she could switch to one of the other high schools in our area. Having known our Drama Queen for several years, I merely raised my eyebrows at her and … Continue reading
Vacations are a lot of fun, but let’s face it, they are also a lot of hard work. From the anticipation, the packing, and the endless driving to the disruption of routine, unpacking and loads of smelly laundry. I was … Continue reading
It’s been a quiet evening. Our KT arrived home safely from her camping trip (with nary a bear sighting) smelly, tired and with lots of stories to share. After a long, hot shower for KT, and dinner and story telling … Continue reading
My oldest daughter left the house shortly after the Crack of Dawn this morning to go on a seven mile hike with a couple of her friends. The hike itself, while a bit challenging, doesn’t bother me. I know KT … Continue reading
