Some of you may find this post, not to your liking. Please understand that this is not a one-on-one attack or anything so simple. I am trying to understand what causes this type of behavior? When I first watched the video clip I did not see kids or races or hats, I saw a very … Continue reading Where And How Did His Parents Grow Up?
I used to work for our local Housing Authority (yep a Government job – eek). I started in the winter of 2000 and left in the spring of 2011. Not that long but, trust me, long enough. When I started, I had no Grandparents raising Grandkids. When I left, I had dozens raising their Grandkids. … Continue reading WHY DOES IT SEEM SO EASY?
I was getting ready to post a rant that I wrote titled: How long held hostage? Then I stopped and thought about it. I have been through all kinds of bad stuff. I have friends that have been through similar things. That’s just what life is all about, I think. Yes, we can stand up … Continue reading Who Would Be In Your Circle?
What (if anything) do you hang on to? I have a ton of memories, but (even after the fire) I have only a few physical mementos. One of the greatest treasures I have is a couple of letters that were sent between my mom and my Aunt Elaine. I know it’s hard for some of … Continue reading WHAT DO YOU HANG ON TO AND WHY?
It’s been an interesting year; I will give it that: Kid-a-geddon March and April. Tornado apocalypse July (still working on clean up/fix up from that) Death of a beloved older sister (unexpected). (October – just one week before her birthday) Grandson's nose bleeds from hell. (October into November) Grandson middle of the night seizures – … Continue reading I DID NOT CHECK THAT BOX!
I have been asked so many times over my 50+ years, how do I manage to stay happy and keep going? The last four years I have been struggling with the answer to this question. While driving my Grandson to another Therapy appointment, I came upon the answer: DON’T DWELL! I began thinking about … Continue reading I FIGURED OUT MY SECRET!
Well, those of you have been following me should know enough about my past to know there is damage. The fire of 2014 was the worst. July 29, 2018, comes in a pretty close second – F2 Tornado. The whole trip was wicked. We have a huge living room window that I judge when it … Continue reading “Darcy, We’re Not In Kansas – Yet” – or The Tornado Trip
Sneaky sisters and exercise tactics.
I was at our local Walmart the other day. It was about mid-morning, and I was in no rush. I got to the checkout aisles, and there was only one checker available (they are trying to push us into the automated ones – yuck!). I was just about ready to start unloading when a weathered … Continue reading Are Small Towns Just Big Families?
I stopped making big bedspread size works years ago. I would find the colors I liked, or that I thought a friend/loved one would like. Then I would spend months crochet or knit it together. When done, everyone seemed under-whelmed. Yes, they were grateful, but the darn thing had exhausted me from completing (or even … Continue reading Will You Wear Purple Now?
