When I was a little girl we lived in many very small homes. I am sure my love of different homes started there as we lived in many though out my childhood. Any military brat will tell you how hard it is to move from place to place and all the different housing you get sent to. My dad was a soldie...

It is really hot outside, 98-degrees and the humidity is off the charts. Inside the smelly foreclosed home it must be 125-degrees for sure. This is the fifth foreclosed home we have been into. My clothes are clinging to me because they are all sweaty wet. A thing a lady like me doesn't like. Mr. ...

On Monday I went to Arlington Texas to see my son. I had not seen him since January and this is his first time living away for me and his father. I must admit that we are having a harder time letting him go than he is of us. I guess that is the way it is with all boys. On the trip up there from H...
