Remember O.C.? Her name has now been officially changed to “Cleo – Queen of the Raccoon Hunters”, but she’ll still answer to just “Cleo”. The appointment has been made. In a couple of weeks she’ll be de-clawed. She’s going to be an I.C.! Hubby gave the ‘command’ this morning to make the appointment. Oh, and […]
A milestone went by and I forgot to mention it, or if I mentioned it I didn’t give it enough credit. Earlier this month Hubby and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary.

Don’t get me wrong… I love the guy. He’s funny, sweet, basically pretty naive and innocent, and he loves my daughter. Yeah, I’m talking about my new SIL. He’s a truly good guy… but he’s a little anal. Yeah. Really. You have to understand, he comes by it naturally. I don’t know his family well, […]
