Karla’s Korner: Big Kids

Big Kids….

It’s the day after my birthday, my husband is away on a golf outing with old college friends (no, I’m not angry that he missed my birthday), my son is in his room playing a video game online with a friend and my daughter and her girlfriend are tucked away in the basement studying their brains out and writing papers for college.

Maybe because I am inching closer to 50 or because it seems that life seems to be zipping by quicker these days and I would really like to slow things down just a bit. In recognition of my birthday I thought I would share a few things I have learned over the past 46 years.Continue reading
