Mini Red


I was reading a post by Lemon Gloria and her discussion with some friends about Lent and what it’s all about. So I went and looked up what I wrote back in 2007.  Seems there was a lot I had forgotten. **Repost It’s that time of year again when Catholics stick out like marked people […]

Life of A Ginger Outcast!

Mini Red wants to start a  blog of her own. I’m a little unsure but I do believe it will improve her writing skills. This would be her first post if and when we start her blog: Well hello again faithful readers, What can I say I love writing and have such an opinion that […]

Reds Rock the Derby

 Yesterday Mini Red and I decided to do something a bit different… We went to the Roller Derby to see the DC Roller Girls. We had a blast! We got there fairly early and it’s a good thing if you want a good seat in the bleachers.  Otherwise you can sit on the floor on […]

Now that the holidays are over we can breathe a sigh of relief and welcome 2009

The holidays have come and gone… Thank goodness. I spent Christmas week sick as a dawg.  Started with a cold and by the Christmas Eve I couldn’t keep much down. I felt so bad that during the annual Family Christmas Eve Party I went and took a nap. The Family got up at the crack […]

The fun things you find when packing for the move

As I’m packing up my apartment I am cleaning out as well.  Tonight I was cleaning out some drawers and finding all sorts of things that Mom’s tend to keep.  Mini Red keeps running out when she hears me sighing and awwing at the pictures I find of her when she was little.  Besides finding […]

Baby It’s Cold Outside
