Assembling the arsenal...

Last night I sat down and highlightened on a calendar how many days this year we have had our grandson JH in our home for visitation in 2015. So far we have had him 45 days, and mom has had him 56.  Well technically she has him from now on since she...

Crying Sucks

Well I've cried, and I've cried. I hate crying. It is just not a good thing for me. As a child we were taught that crying was for wimps. Eight children and if you cried, you were meat for the vultures. Siblings can be hard on one another. I am a...

Almost did it...

I lay awake last night plotting a kidnapping. I did. Really. I plotted the kidnapping of my two year old grandson. I love him. He loves me too. We have a magic bond.   However, this morning I discovered my plot was way to...

Crushing news...

Ever knew something was coming, but the pain of hearing the words spill out of another mouth is more than you can bare? Yea. Me too.   Today I got the news that my grandson JH will be moving far, far away. Across the country in fact. His mother...

Monday, Monday...

Woke up with a headache this morning, and my ears popping. Welcome Spring allergies, I've missed you, not.   The Littles are filing in, and thankfully most of them happily. Mr. C came in crying. Not good when I have a headache. Glad it only...

Speech Therapist Needed...

I used to encounter an occasional child with a speech difficulty. Now it is like an epidemic. In fact my daycare has three boys right now who are in speech therapy, and you can barely understand a word they say.  If you need a good job with job...

A clarification...

My post yesterday was written in an aggravated state. I'm guessing that you recognized that. After having time to think about it, I wanted to clarify a few things.   First of all my settings on facebook are open for anyone to message me, yes...

Don't go away mad, just go away...

So what is it with men? Occasionally I will get a message in my messenger on fb from a man. Generally they will say "You are beautiful, inside and out. Too bad you are married." Quickly followed by a pic of themselves. As if to say, "Look, look. Look...

Hush...

At this very moment I would like to walk out into the woods, and just stay there. It is raining here, so I would need to find shelter, perhaps under a tree. I would love to just sit there in the hush of the woods, and listen. Close my eyes and hear...

Time to break some legs...

I'm just a tad angry, and I suppose ranting here will help. Let's hope so.   I have an issue that does not belong to me, so I don't get to handle the issue. How frustrating!   My daughter Sunshine is 27, lives on her own in an apartment...

Well....

Just wondering when it all will end. I'm exhausted...totally. I've been to the specialist who sent me to get a million tests. So far all is well, save one that shows my crp is high. That indicates inflammation, but I could have told them that one. Not...

Whelp, here we are...

Today is Thursday December 4th. Only 21 days till Christmas. I have yet to purchase a gift for RJ, and I am assuming he has yet to purchase one for me. Isn't that how it goes? We get involved in taking care of everyone else's happiness, and put...

So...

So, here we are again. It is the day before Thanksgiving and we are walking this path together. The joy and excitement of seeing the ones we love, and the sadness of not seeing the others that have gone on to the grave. Daddy died in 1999 after a...

I Need Prayers!!

Dear friends and perfect strangers, I need prayers. Three weeks ago I had a total vaginal hysterectomy. I have developed several complications. First I had a flaming bladder infection. Went on an antibiotic for a week, and cleared that up. I still...

Two steps foward, three steps back...

So today is day 13 since my hysterectomy. I'm struggling!   On Friday I started hurting. I thought perhaps I had overdone it, because I went back to work on day 8. Six weeks off to recuperate was out of the question. I did take it easy, but...

Headache from Hades!

I've had a headache for a while now. My face hurts. I think it is the barometric pressure, or something major is blooming that I am allergic too.   To make matters worse, I am sceduled for a full hysterectomy on Tuesday. Therefore I am avoiding...

Lean into the Joy

Interesting words no doubt. Lean into the JOY.   If I have realized anything in my 51 years on earth it is this: NOTHING ever goes as planned. Not parties. Not weddings. Not families. Not realationships. Not vacations. Not money. Not parenting....

Dear Uterus

This letter is to inform you that you will be relieved of your position on July 22, 2014. You have outworn your welcome in the company, and we no longer need you. To be quite honest, you have wreaked havoc for some time now, and though we tried hard...

I Sure Did...

Whelp, I jumped on the latest craze, oil pulling.   I read about it on facebook, and started investigating it on the internet. I watched videos on youtube, read testimonials and thought why not. So I tripped on over to Walmart and found some...

EXCITED!

Well then. On Friday I visited my allergy/immunologist for some allergy testing. It had been 17 years since I had environmental testing, so he wanted to see where I was at with that. 17 years ago they used to do scratch testing. That hurt, but I could...
