Virginia Tech

It seemed like half of my graduating class went to Tech. What happened there Monday was so horrifying there really are no words. I am not articulate enough to add anything, I just pray for all of the victims, families, students. As a former college student I can't even imagine having the wherewithall to barricade the door and duck bullets. As a mom, one day I hope to drop my children off at a university and believe they are safe there.

In reality, none of us are safe, anything can happen, anywhere. Life can be just that bad, a nightmare.

On the other hand, I do hold my boys close and remain as positive as possible. There are no guarantees of course, but we are here now & that's what its all about... now.

About Me

My photo
I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
