The Fine Lines.....

It always amazes me, relationships. The fine line we walk between love and hate. The ever wonderful feeling of falling in love with someone, versus that horrible feeling of distaste and disgust we feel once it is over. Ever notice how euphoric...

Would You???

As humans we sometimes sit and think on the mistakes we have made in our lives. Some big, some small, but for all of us some mistakes were made. I wonder if we were presented with a choice, how many of us would really change things in our past. I...

A Hodge Podge of Sorts......

Lately I am filled with conflicting emotions. I want to shout with joy, and melt into tears. I feel like I am pregnant, with hormonal surges shooting through my veins with every pulse of blood. Seeing as I have not been exposed to pregnancy (hubby had...

Motherless Children......

I hate nothing worse in the world, than a woman who is low enough to bring a child into this world, and then neglect them. Mothering is a life long duty..birth till death, you are their mother. A woman who lets their child struggle, emotionally or...

Paying for The Plumbers Hummer....

Against all odds, we had another leak yesterday. Around 4 p.m. the children noticed a big puddle in the daycare kitchen floor. If you are following our puddle saga, this would be the 2nd big puddle in a week, the other cost me about $480.00. Thinking...

How Difficult it IS....

I learned something last night, an important something. I learned how difficult it is going to be to be the parent of an adult. A person who is now of a responsible age and with their own ideas and points of view. Not that they didn't have a point of...

I Would Do Anything For LOVE....

I was browsing youtube and located one of my all time favorite videos. Meatloaf went above and beyond with this one. A spin off of beauty and the beast, it is one of the sexiest videos of its time. She is beautiful, and the contrast of their characters...

Questions by Nightbane.....

Nightbane is on a natural high posting questionairres. Just to help him out, I thought I'd answer his. Now that is a friend, no?   1) What is the most outlandish piece of clothing you've ever owned? A pair of overalls featured on the Hee...

Proms, Formals and Fun, Oh MY!!....pics

Both of my children attended formal events last night, and in the same town, oh my! The town is not far from where we live, and close to Sunshine's college, it is just bigger than our little city. So they rent the big dance halls and away we go, off to...

The Irresponsible Parent....

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn. If children live with hostility, they learn to fight. If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive. If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves. If...

All I Need....

Sometimes I think all I need is to get in my vehicle and drive. A full tank of gas, and nowhere to go. Perhaps take the camera and drive to the mountains, or to the lake. Park on the side of the road and capture moments in time. ...

Another Crazy Morning..

So I got up this morning to find a large puddle of water in the daycare kitchen floor. I thought it might be the freezer, but upon closer inspection realized it was a leak from the bathroom overhead. Yikes!! Yesterday I had the plumber in to fix...

Adding to...Nightbane's Addiction..

1) What do you do when sleep does not come? Think about all the things I could be doing instead of laying there in bed. YUCK! 2) Do you play with your food? Absolutely, then I eat it. 3) Your idea of the perfect pet? Stuffed animal..no...

It is Always Something....yuck!

At lunchtime today, I opened my deep freezer to find everything in it thawing. Yikes!! I immediately texted R.J. that the freezer was broken, and $500.00 worth of food was thawing fast...What to do?? R.J. rushes home, as we don't want to lose the...

On Money....

I never really cared that much about money. Perhaps it is because I never really had to deal with the worry of it all. My mother paid all the bills, and carried the weight of caring for a family of 10. Then R.J. took the finances in hand, making sure...

My Dogwood Tree Pics.....

I tripped outside moments ago to take a few pics of my Dogwood Trees. It has been raining all day, and the sun was setting, which threw a perfect hue for the pics. Enjoy!                     The Legend of the Dogwood Tree... Two thousand...

Google Does Know Everything....

So I am amazed at Google, I truly am. As of late, I have had major health issues. They seem to hit one right after the other, and sometimes all together. Trying to piece the puzzle together of my bodies rebellion, I often look to google for answers. I...

An Important Day...

I received notification from the high school that C.B. qualifies for the state Vocational Rehab "School to Work Program". Now, I was unfamiliar with this program, until the high school hooked us up. Seems they have an office in the school, and since...

Oh Happy Fries...pic...

Took a little trip over to see my Sunshine today.  I was not feeling so pretty good, but I needed to make the trip anyway. She has allergy issues, wonder why, duh? The apple did not fall far from the tree. So she didn't feel all that well either. ...

How Midol PM...Wrestled Me Down...

So, since I was in so much pain yesterday, I forwent my errands and stayed at home to rest. I had taken Alleve several times, to help my hip pain, with no relief. I do have medicines with codeine in them, which I just hate to take. They knock me slap...

Some Sympathy Please...

Dear Internet..I come to you at this UN-Godly hour to ask for some kind words and ice water (mostly just to whine). See I live in a no whine zone, of my own making. I hate to hear people whine, in fact I have been heard to say "Suck it up, your still...

A Life for a Life....

I was thinking last night about my complete support of organ donation, and what that gift of life is worth to the recipient, and to their families. At some point we are all going to die. It might be today, tomorrow, next month or even next year. Some...

The Tooth Paste Wars....

R.J. and I had a funny little dispute last night and I thought I would share it with you. If you are not married, I want to warn you that this is a normal event with married couples. Stupid little things get in the way, and all of a sudden you have a...

Questions That Cry Out for Answers....

Just a few questions that I like to ask people..once I get to know them better. Since we all know each other So Very Well..Let's play the questions and answers game, Shall We? 1. What would you say is your best physical asset? Hmm..my smile ...
