Hidden Away...

Was listening to my music channel via Comcast whilst I worked on taxes this weekend. A new song by Josh Groban came on, and it made me think. How often do we hold our words in. Kind words we could of spoken to ease someone's heart. Kind words of...

My New Life...

So Saturday I woke with a renewed vigor, ready to grab this "No Wheat"  lifestyle by the horns. First I needed to figure out what I could and could not have. Wheat is in a LOT of products, and I do mean a lot. Flour is in every bread, every pasta,...

Lost a FRIEND....

Sometimes life is not fair, and this is one of those times. If you are one of my friends, then you know I had food allergy testing yesterday. 101 little pin pricks and 101 drops of various food substances on my back. I am way allergic to a lot of...

My Peacemaker...Sandwiched in the Middle... So Called Life...

Sometimes I wish I could just step out of this role I have created for myself. You know the one, wife, mother, friend, sister, the girl in the middle. For once I would love to wake up and think about just me, and me only. Be selfish for a change, you...

My Hobo Moment..How EMBARASSING!!

Yesterday afternoon one of my daycare parents came in to pick up her son and asked me what was wrong with our dog Risky. She said she looks like she is dying. She actually sang "Knock Knock Knocking on Heaven's Door".... Ugh!! I ran to the door, and...

La De Da...Just Hanging Out and Hanging ON.....

Happy Wednesday people!!  I've been hanging out and hanging on, hope all of you are well. I've been over on flickr.com toying with my photographs. I'm tweaking frames and options that make the beauty of the photograph more appealing to the eye. The...

I Don't Get It...

For some crazy reason, we keep a scanner by our bed. It is on 24/7 and is constantly barking and beeping to the tune of life gone awry.  Early this morning I was awakened by a lot of sudden traffic. Seems two young men had made a round in two counties...

Happy Monday People...

Well another week is upon us, and time just ticks on by. I rested most of the weekend, having taken benadryl for swelling in my face (allergies). I was trying to combat the allergy issues, as I can't have any allergy meds after Wednesday, due to...

A Picture Blog...finally. :D

It has been awhile since I had the ability to upload pics to my blog, so I'm excited.  I've been taking lots of pictures, mostly just playing. I can not wait till Spring and all of the earth to bloom. So tired of Winter and cold weather..just sick of...

I*N*A*P*P*R*O*P*R*I*A*T*E......

I read a Harvard study about the importance of a rich vocabulary being used in a child's everyday environment. Using words like saturated, disappointed, peninsula, and hundreds of others, improves their understanding of the human language and enriches...

Someone Dropped the Ball...

Call me crazy or whatever you choose to call me, it makes no difference to me, I like to watch Teen Mom. I watch it with my Sunshine, and sometimes we are just shocked at what we see. This season there is a young mother of twins, who is of course...

Wandering By...

Seems as if I have wandered away from Thoughts for a bit. I've been busy with life, but even when I had a week off (due to snow), I didn't spend much of it here. The truth is I'm not all that fond of how this site is laid out. Finding friends posts...

I'm Digging Out of Snow Hell....

Call me a wimp, but I am so not happy that my entire routine has been thrown off by all this snow. I am a schedule kind of person. I get up at the same time every morning, save the weekends. I eat basically the same foods, and drink the same drinks. I...

Day 464 of Stuck in the Snow...

For the first time in my life, I know what it feels like to be stuck...unable to go anywhere, and unable to get anyone here to me. I have been unable to work this week, due to the fact that the parents cannot get here with the children. Now that has...

The Tenacity of Love..

My mom and dad were married on her 16th birthday, he was 27. Together they had 8 children, 6 girls and 2 boys. We survived on one salary, and the will to make it work that  they both had.  I sometimes wonder where I got my tenacious will to survive,...

The Balance of Life....

Into every life comes balance. Even when you think your life is chaotic, or boring, at some point in time you will see that balance is key. I've been alive long enough now to appreciate a good balance. I've prayed for more of this, or more of that,...

The Daily Struggle...

This morning I am sitting up in my recliner, surrounded by picture windows glowing white with snow. We had more snow last night, and I have no children in the daycare. They can't possibly get up the hill, it is pure ice. I've already contacted the...

Chaos in Motion....

Yesterday I attended what has to be the most chaotic sports event I have ever attended. It was a youth wrestling club tournament. We arrived at precisely 3 p.m., just in time to watch the 4/5 year olds wrestle. Now this was as cute as anything you can...

Under the Influence of Hair Dye...

Funny what we will do to look good. Me, I jump through fiery hoops to look young and attractive, which says a lot about me. The way I see it, I'm gonna whirl through this world only once, and I'm gonna do it looking fine.  Well there is the genetic...

Forever lasted a Week...

Last week I set a new years resolution to not drink Fuzes anymore. Some of them have 1 g of sugar, some have as much as 22 g of sugar. I swore to let them go, which would be easy, except hubby bought me 5 on Sunday morning. I have let them sit in the...

Growing Up in a Family of Ten...

I was born the 5th girl and the 6th child, in a family of 10, eight of us children. We lived in Montgomery Alabama on a dead end road, and stayed there till I was 6. I can picture the layout of the house in my mind, the large rooms, and even the yard....

The Facebook Fiasco...

I don't know about this thing called facebook. It is a great way to be connected to people who you can't actually see. For instance I have family in Alabama I have reconnected with, long lost cousins. My sister in Florida joined this week, and my...

Love in the Family...

I think being a mother is the most wonderful thing...ever! I just got a text from my daughter Sunshine (23) who is downstairs by the way, to go to youtube and look up this song.   I of course immediately went and listened to it, and...

On Marriage.....

You could say that I have been married forever, as that is how it feels. I have been with RJ 30 years and 4 months, and that folks amounts to forever. He is a good man, a hard worker, a good family man, and a good friend. He is everything a woman...
