'Tis the Season...
Sunday, November 17, 2019      3 comments

Time to think about how I would like this season to go. The older I get, the more I wish it was like when I was younger. Kick back and spend time with family and friends.... Read more
Now That Halloween is Over...
Monday, November 04, 2019      6 comments

my concentration is on Christmas. I've got Helena mostly done. She's easy - at 5, she tells me what she wants. My girls are a little harder, but not really. Their significant others are a little harder than that, but not really. My dearest ... Read more
Yes, No, and Wait
Tuesday, October 29, 2019      4 comments

God has three answers for us: yes, no and wait. He answered me wait yesterday. It's definitely the hardest of the answers to hear. My baby, Sherry is Helena's Mom. My girls are my whole world. Over the weekend, I saw some of Sherry's... Read more
Tea Party
Friday, October 25, 2019      4 comments

Helena and I had a "Tea" at her school this morning. We went back to the classroom and made crafts afterwards. It was fun. The school gave us papers with suggestions to talk about. Would you rather live in the jungle or on a farm? I want th... Read more
Weather Roller Coaster
Friday, October 18, 2019      5 comments

There is a serious weather roller coaster going on here. One day in the 50s, the next in the upper 70s. I am reminded of my younger years hearing about people who are effected by weather changes. I wondered how that could be. Now I know...... Read more
Hot Dog Dance
Wednesday, October 09, 2019      4 comments

I forgot how Helena used to make everyone dance the Hot Dog Dance at the end of the Mickey Show. We turned on the Disney Channel this morning to find a new twist on it. Every 30 minutes, no matter what show was on, kids would come out and do t... Read more
Fall Break

Helena has fall break this week. We started it out by going to Tate Farms Friday night. It was a gorgeous night as we ate, picked pumpkins and played with all the stuff. Sunday, we had a family dinner at Sarah's and painted Halloween deco... Read more
Beginning of October :(
Tuesday, October 01, 2019      7 comments

It's that time of year again for my mood to go south. I don't like shorter days and colder weather. Like other mammals, I want to add extra weight and hibernate. Mom's birthday is Friday. She would have been 89. It's been three years an... Read more
It Only Took Me Five Years....
Sunday, September 29, 2019      5 comments

When Sherry was pregnant, I started taking pictures to remember things by. Before Helena was born (6-27-14), I started collecting scrapbooking supplies to put the pictures in. I FINALLY FINISHED putting the pictures into an album this morning.... Read more
Another "How?"
Thursday, September 26, 2019      3 comments

dumb question: how is a person supposed to walk more when she can't walk on her left foot or exercise more when she has a frozen shoulder? My one doctor asked if I had started wither one yet...... Read more
How Do I Explain 9.11?
Thursday, September 12, 2019      3 comments

As with most Americans, I paused and thought about what happened on 9-11-01. And I thought of my granddaughter and all the others who were born after that date or who were too young to remember. How do I explain to her something that I can't r... Read more
Blah Blah Blah
Tuesday, September 10, 2019      7 comments

My shoulder is mostly better; there's one spot that still wants to let me know it's there. Another spot on my left foot hurts; arthritis is not fun. What has me puzzled is a spot on the back of my head. It's at the bottom on the rig... Read more
Shoulder/Heel Update
Wednesday, September 04, 2019      5 comments

The shoulder feels better but still lets me know it's there. The less it hurts, the more my heel spur hurts. I had a follow-up on the heel last week. Doctor says I'll always have it - he sure didn't make that clear the first time I went. I w... Read more
Frozen Shoulder
Thursday, August 22, 2019      7 comments

When I told my girls that I have a frozen shoulder, my oldest asked if it was an ice cream. I wish! I've heard of this but never knew anyone who had one. It's not fun. If I could just sleep more than a half hour or hour at a time. I s... Read more
August Seems to Bring Hurting
Wednesday, August 14, 2019      8 comments

Last August I broke my foot where I had my bunion surgery the August before. This August, I slipped and fell backwards out of my tub, hitting the toilet on my left side on the way down. The bruise on my leg was from my fanny to mid-calf.... Read more
