It’s been a very long, very emotional two weeks. November 7th and 8th marked one year since the mass shooting and wildfires rocked my hometown of Thousand Oaks.

Yesterday the kids and I made the first of what I’m sure will be MANY trips to the local Halloween store. Annie and James still love being scared by all the creepy displays (I wasn’t blown away by the offerings this year, but there were still a few good ones). James seems pretty set on…

On Monday I developed a very sudden, very severe case of pink eye. My kids were at school for three days and *I* am the one who got pink eye. THANKS. It was really gross. First my eye turned bright red, then my cornea started swelling. If eye things gross you out, DO NOT GOOGLE…
