So, tomorrow is Thanksgiving and, I gotta tell ya, this one is one for the books…and not necessarily a book that I’d like to read… If you live in my neck of the woods, Southeast Texas, and DON’T know about the refinery explosions that have happened last night and today, you must have been trapped […]

II don’t know about you guys, but at the Edgar’s house, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…which is both exciting and exhausting at the same time. Don’t get me wrong, Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year-ask anyone! I love everything about it; I don’t even mind the shopping crowds, honestly…maybe because […]

Every time I hear “Here Comes Santa Claus,” which, you know, for me is every day, I think “Oh, hold up Santa! You can’t come yet! Not one Christmas gift is wrapped, I’m only in the 2nd wave of Christmas cards (2nd wave=all the ones I forgot in the 1st wave,) I haven’t really baked […]

Well, I’m wondering how your new year is going? So far, mine is pretty typical: shocking my system out of the “I’ve eaten WAY too many carbs and sweets” stupor, trying desperately to make up for all the sleep lost over the holidays due to laying awake at night, wondering, “Am I going to have […]

Hi, guys! How’s your week going? Mine is going pretty well. I have a different type of post for you today. A few months back, I wrote an article that I was hoping would be posted in this magazine. To be perfectly honest, I was really proud of my writing here, don’t judge me, and […]
