My soldier called me tonight! Poor connection that I
can hardly hear him...and then it doesn't help that the
new phone I bought is crappy and just hangs up in the
middle of a conversation! He's been up coughing all
night and therefore, isn't getting any sleep. I hate
I'm not there to help him feel better! He was going to

My boys and I moved the piano into the living room. I was

looks like now that will be a staple on my grocery list.
I can't very well stop, my kids love watching them.
Is there some way to get rid of the pesky Blue Jays though?
They run off the cute little finches that try to eat.
