How do You Grow Your Love? (And Don’t Crop Dust Your Wife)

Even to this day if I hear my husband fart in another room I start to dry-heave…

I Pay for Chicken Practice?

Today was a monumental day in the Falcon household…the girls started soccer!! Now I should have read the fine print, because I thought my kids started playing soccer on a team today, but it turns out it’s just skills. So no teamwork. And the parents are supposed to be involved—even with the older kids. SoContinue reading “I Pay for Chicken Practice?”

Medical, Medical Everywhere!

I’ve had a lot of fun with medical stuff the last few years. It just keeps going too. Doesn’t help either that I have some legit anxiety that leads to a bit of hypochondria, so there is definitely a mix of physical symptoms mixed with psychosomatic symptom…it’s a fun combination 😂 I’m writing this forContinue reading “Medical, Medical Everywhere!”

Travel Log: Iejima, Okinawa, Japan

One thing I didn’t do as much of as I would have liked while living in Okinawa was visit the smaller Okinawa Prefecture islands. 2020 was the year!! But then…COVID restricted us to big Oki until our move back to the USA and we missed our chance. For Chris’ 40th birthday in May 2019 weContinue reading “Travel Log: Iejima, Okinawa, Japan”
