This month has been a 'tough' one for many reasons. The boys both doing online summer school and neither of them really wanting or trying. That leaves a lot of 'heavy lifting' in the motivation department for mom. Me not working, which you would think was a great thing, but I haven't been able to … Continue reading Always on my mind ….
Boy, yesterday hit me like a ton of bricks, or car, maybe a car ... yeah, that's a better choice.. I felt like I had been run over, honestly! Every single inch hurt. The Bear was trying to play around and be cheeky and just his touching my knee hurt like the dickens! (I have … Continue reading A lot better today! 😀
Man, life has been beating the cr@p out of me lately, physically. I don't know if it's that I have become accustomed to the level of meds and now need to adjust, if it's the drastic change of weather or if it's simply chemical changes in my body. Perhaps and probably all of the above? … Continue reading Just another day, standing! 😉
Today is the second anniversary of my Gramma's passing. She suffered with Alzheimer's (Dementia). I have been wanting to write about this for most of this month but chose not to because I was trying to be sensitive to the needs of others. A few of you might see the irony in that statement now. … Continue reading R.I.P. Gramma

Everywhere I read about moms excited and fulfilled by having children and raising them and being moms. The … Continue reading Truths no one wants to hear.
I did it, I put my brand spankin' new resume to use. The job has been posted for a little while already, for all I know it is already filled but I sent the darn thing out! Just to one place, there are others out there and I found one that would be part-time. Might … Continue reading Changes in the wind?
https://youtu.be/kZNvjmXM7eg Lately I feel like I'm being called in a different direction than the one I have been following for the past 20+ years. My doctor was right about stress being a major part of my issues. It affects everything from your mental to your physical well-being, I know that. What he was wrong about … Continue reading Life’s calling – “She’s done what she should, should she do what she dares ..?”
So many things with the oldest I never know just how to put it down 'on paper' and have it come out right. The nuances are so many that it really is hard to say it in just one post! He's still dragging his feet with school. Part of that is he's lazy, I know … Continue reading The double edged sword
This wasn't what I was going to ramble about this morning, but it came to mind so here we go! *wink* About a year ago now we were running around trying to do all sorts of things to pretty and prepare the yard for a huge party! If you've been here a while you might … Continue reading Funny how life comes around.
