Last month, I received some sad news, David (Dave) Brink, a good family friend, had passed away. The news caught me totally off guard and I am not embarrassed to admit I cried like a baby after hearing of his death. I met Dave in 1991, when he purchased the bar in Calio, N.D. Now, for those of you not familiar with my hometown and the metropolis of Calio, let me tell you a few things about it.

They say it takes a village to raise a family. If this is true, then it must take a kitten going into heat to teach children about the birds and the bees. Yes, in an epic Supermom fail, I forgot to schedule a procedure for our female cat, and she showed me. It was a normal night in Supermom's house. Well, maybe not normal, now that I think about it.

Time to get all those things done I have managed to put off for years, and making resolutions was going to be how it happened. My house tells me this year is the year. Time to clean cupboards and closets, time to get rid of all the stuff I keep thinking we will need but will never need. My inner supermom tells me this year is the year.

Last Monday, my son, Parker, graduated. Not from school, but rather from the speech program at school. This was a bittersweet day at our house. First and foremost, my husband, Jayson, and I are so proud of Parker and all the hard work he has done at speech. Anyone who has had to go to speech or has a child in speech knows it may sound easy -- but it isn't. Being in speech isn't just going to your speech pathologist and practicing your sounds.
