Thank God For Pain Pills

Just a quick post to catch people up on the surgery. My husband went under the knife this a.m. and is now recovering at home. Because he is in such good health, no pre-surgery tests were taken. As the nurse put it  "You are a good-looking picture of...

Thank God It is FRIDAY...

Thank God it is Friday!!! Today is the last day my husband will work for 6 weeks. This will be the start of my season of discontent. Now I love my husband, but sometimes I can barely tolerate him. The time he spends at work and I spend at work is...

My So Called Life...Chapter 4

Up until the age of seven I had lived in a somewhat peaceful home. There was noise of course with eight children in the house, but not a lot of chaos or fighting. We were taught from an early age to be quiet in the house and loud outside. We were not...

My So Called Life....Chapter 3

We moved into our new home in Jan 1971, it was a rather large home in a big neighborhood, the biggest street we lived on so far. I thought this would be a good thing, turned out not to be so good. My mom had the gift of gab and never met a stranger,...

My so called Life...chapter 2

Pulling into the drive of our new home in Tennessee was an amazing thing for a seven year old. It was 1970 and it was Christmas time. My father had secured a trailer(imagine that, 10 people), until he could find a house. The trailer sat on a hill...

My So Called Life...Chapter 1

My earliest memories take me back to my birthplace, Montgomery, Alabama. I was born the sixth child of eight children, the fifth girl to be exact. My father wanted twelve children, six boys and six girls(what the hell was he thinking). My mother just...

The Chapters of Our Lives...

Our lives are spelled out in chapters. Some chapters we cling mercilessly to and some we cannot wait to slam the door on. We are all a sum of the experiences we have from birth to now. In my own life, I can distinctly see the chapters open and close as...

Perspectives

Perspectives..we all have them. Our perspectives are developed by the experiences we have, good and bad, and the information we choose to believe in. My perspectives on marriage, relationships and commitments, admittedly are from my experiences as a...

Infidelity...

Infidelity is a major component of many divorces and while it is a symptom of a problem...it is not the main problem. Nobody in a healthy, happy relationship is going to be unfaithful. Nobody in a relationship where their emotional and physical needs...

Why? Why? Why? Do Teenagers Kill Themselves

What's happened to the clothing industry?

What has happened to the clothing industry?  I took my mother to Red Lobster for dinner on Good Friday. While we were out, I decided to shop around for some shorts(I can't wear anything I wore last year as I have gone from a size 14 to a size 6/8). I...

OMG where have my boobs gone?

In the last few months I have lost 30lbs. I think I lost 10 in each breast because people, they are gone.  Sad day! So I make a trip to Walmart, home of 10,000 bras. All shapes and sizes and pretty colors. My first thought on entering the bra section,...

The POWER of words...

Words are a person's most powerful tool. Words can soothe and calm, and they can stab and hurt. Worse than a cut from a knife is the power of words. Better than all that money can buy, is the power of words. The things we choose to say to each other,...

Monday Woot!

So it is Monday.  Life is returning to normal after the drama of the breast infection..YUCK!  It was not visible from the outside, but still was an unpleasant experience. Today I am thankful that I got through this event without surgery, thus no scars....
