The Fine Folks of F*rm*r C*ty

I am beyond furious and due to a complete lack of ability to change current events, I am going to blog about a personal event going on with my family. Typically I wouldn’t really be ready/willing to post about this but I have to get out my overwhelming frustration somewhere, somehow. 1: My son is…

Life as I see it (rambling)

I’ve been a mom for 24 years and a nurse for 12 years. Clearly that makes me an expert on both, right? Sitting here now I realize I can’t give myself such a broad subject because I can’t figure out where to start! Our youngest turns 18 in 2 weeks, graduation in next weekend. This…

Family Getaway 3

So the trip to Chicago has come and gone! Of course I didn’t blog about it at all like I thought/hoped I would. We did have a wonderful time though and spent plenty of money! In true Sunshine fashion I left myself broke afterward BUT you only live once!

Our Princess

17 1/2 years ago our youngest was born, Alexa Kay Louise!! She was s force to be reckoned with from the start. I had the chicken pox for the first time while I was pregnant with her, which caused no real trouble but the Dr said she was born with a few pock marks. During…

My Mini Me

In March of 1998 we had our first girl together: Soleil Channing Marie. All of my kids have 2 middle names and all the names are for a reason dear to me. Soleil is french for sun (and my name really is Sunshine) Channing is the last name of my favorite actress in Grease (Stockard…
