Wow, I like Rose?

I'm not a big Rose fan. It reminds me of the 80's when my folks would drink boxed wine. I picked this one up at whole foods and my husband and I actually liked it. We commented that it was a little sweet, but not too sweet. It's more dry and not very oakey. This wine is a Rose of Cab Franc from Columbia valley. Try it... it's $16 a whole foods, so you won't bust the bank.

I'm the wicked step mother

My step son is out here for the summer and so far there haven't been too many bumps in the road. I do find, though, that when things are rocky with his own mother that that things are also a little touchy with me. I guess that comes with the territory of being a step mom.

Like a lot of people I hide behind my humor and sarcasm.  The order day he was reading a book (at my request). He said that there was a wicked step mother in the book who was against the kids.

I thought "of course there is". So in my own weird sarcastic way I laughed a wicked witch of the west laugh and said "you know those wicked stepmothers" and rung my hands. My step son looked at me in that pre-teen "OMG -you're so not cool" sort of way and said " that was a creepy laugh, mom". 

I'll just accept my role as he wicked step mother with grace and take every day as it comes. Muah-ah-ah-ah-ah.... I couldn't help but get one more creepy laugh in for today.
