Dear Married Woman...

....eating at the table next to me at the steak house. I was shocked when you came rushing in to join your family for dinner, and immediately admonished your husband for not getting your order exactly right. For ordering your drink when the family...

Johnnie

I had a friend on thoughts.com back in 2008 and his name was Johnnie He lived in Texas, near the flood area. I have zero idea of how to reach him, but have worried about him all day long.    Wherever you are Johnnie, I pray for your safety....

Life...

I have a full house today, a very full house. I have 6 boys, and 2 girls. Whew! The youngest turned two in April, and the oldest turned 4 in April. I have several leaving next week for pre-k. I think they are all ready, save writing their names. They...

So...

Last night I had a crazy dream. Crazy, and so realistic. Aren't those the most interesting kind? They are for me. I won't ever forget this dream. It goes in the box in my mind for memorable dreams, and it stays there. I'm going to write it out here,...

ethics...

Our country is under siege with a drug epidemic. So much so that some towns are now considering putting a cap on how many times a person can give you Narcon to save you from an overdose. What the hell people? How can you tell a police officer, nurse,...

The shuffle...

Though RJ and I both work full time and make a fairly good amount of money, we are sinking fast. Not drowing yet, but sinking. The boat which has been afloat since 1983 has a hole in it, and though we are trying to plug the hole, water keeps seeping...

#i'mwithher

...and I am happy I can say that here. Can't say it on my fb, or even out loud. Shhh!  I may get shot. I'm sitting with my daughter Sunshine watching CNN as they count the votes. It is making me a nervous wreck! She is confident that Hilary will win....

Well then...

I live in a small town where it is not unsual to run into people you have known since 1st grade. It is nice sometimes, and sometimes it is downright annoying. I try to be cognizant of other people's time, and not just hang onto them in a grocery...

That sucks...

I bounced into our local walk in clinic last night to have the doctor check out my ribs. I took a fall on Sunday, and I think I may have cracked a couple of them. I just wanted to be sure that all was well. I waited only five minutes, which beats my...

Biting ones tongue hurts!

I'm going to have to log off of facebook until this election is over. People are nuts, and I can not handle it.   I live in the Bible belt, and am standing squarely on the buckle. There is a church on every corner, and a religous post posted...

We all fall down...

We took our grand JH to a pumpkin patch this weekend, which was his first big event of this sort. There were several acres of different stations for children of all ages to play. There was a lot of room to offer freedom of movment between the...

Good Thursday Morning...

Worried this morning about my niece in Florida. She lives in Port Orange, and is likely to get hit by this storm. She and her husband have three cats, and I don't think they are moving inland. Choices we have to make. I love a good storm, but this one...

Hi Peeps,

I feel as if I have ran up on an old friend and we need to catch up on each other's lives. I'm good. I really am. Save the fact that I am a burning inferno several times a day, and most of the night. I was on an excellent medication for my hormones,...

What is up with Thoughts.com?

I've really been needing to blog, but unable to. Thoughts.com is messed up for me. I do use firefox, but that has always served me well. I posted a blog the other day, but am unable to get to it. Thoughts kicks me to a page unavailable status. It...

So,

I've been unable to post on thoughts for some time, even though I have had lots of thoughts. So many thoughts in fact that I thought I might explode. From the thoughts, you know? Well thankfully this morning thoughts.com let me in. Thank goodness! ...

So it's my birthday...

and I'm thinking back over all of my birthdays. I am the sixth child in a family with eight children. We never got store bought cakes, and sometimes didn't get a cake at all. We were poor, with only my dad supporting us while mom stayed home. Mom...

I just don't know...

For those not familar with my blog, I live in the Bible belt. In fact I live on the buckle. You can't throw a rock without hitting a church. No joke. I was raised Baptist, but my parents did not attend church. I attended various churches, and learned...

So I am really struggling....

with all of these small children dying in crazy ways. Just read where a set of three year old twins drowned at a family gathering. The parents had let the boys go outside with a group of other kids, including an older sibling. No one checked on them....

Per my usual...

I am an emotional mess. I can't stop feeling weepy, and I can't clear my mind of the reason I am weepy. So the backstory.   Everyone knows I own an in home child care, and that I have been licensed for over 30 years. I have provided care for 100...

Rules of Society...

We seem to have forgotten how to behave as a society. No one has any manners whatsoever. None! I don't think that is evident in any place more than it is at the grocery store. Walmart for example is a bevy of misbehavior. Not by children, but by...
