What in the world is going on right now? I feel like I have been thrown into hyper drive. I have been so good at saying “no” all year but right now everything feels like you have to say yes, or your children will not get signed up for school next year, or pass the STAAR, or be prepared for the end of the … Read More May Survival Guide–Not For The Faint of Heart.
As far as movies go there are few that will get me into a theater like a Marvel movie will. The big action in your face jump off the screen superhero movies are one of my favorites.

Every generation must have a moment that happens where you remember exactly where you were when it happened. 9/11 is for sure one of those moments. I was a senior at Texas Tech.

Harry Potter has the Gospel written all over it. And this may effectively end this blog. But, just hear me out! I am not condoning witchcraft. I am only here for defense against the dark arts and I would never join the death eaters. We went to Harry Potter world last week and I was just so blown away by the attention to detail. … Read More Harry Potter has the Gospel written all over it.
Ok, don’t really ask me what I am being self-righteous about because I will probably punch you square in the throat. But I have learned something about my low level anger and frustration this past month, and it is not pretty. Sometimes however, freedom comes when we stare straight into our ugliness, call it what it is and confess it to God. I have … Read More When I tell you I am angry and frustrated, ask me what I am being self righteous about.
This is Downton. She is very confused. She has never really had a firm foundation or identity. This is partly our fault. For one, she was purchased on a whim with 11 chickens. She was the only duck left in the duck pen and I could not stand to leave her all alone. So she started off thinking she was a chicken. The second … Read More Downton the Confused Duck

Well, it has been a minute, as the young people say. My birthday was amazing. Much to my surprise I looked exactly the same on the morning of my birthday as I did the night before. I thought maybe on your 40th you would wake up needing a face lift. As it turns out, not much has changed. Well except I just realized I … Read More Goodbye 1950 Alpha Drive
