I'm a 50ish home school mom of two boys. Okay, there's no "ish" about it. I'm way past 50 and speeding toward 60. I live in an big old house with 2 sons , 5 cats, a sweet Boston Terrier that loves to eat electric cords (I guess she gets a charge from them. Groans are in order at this point) and an ADHA papillion, King Louis the first and last. I read compulsively, work part-time in the financial services industry, and scrapbook any time I can. I love antiques mainly because I'm getting close to being one. To say chaos reigns is to put it mildly.


Scrapbooking, cooking, Boy Scouts, antiques, dogs, cats, and my boys
