Merry Christmas?


I don’t want to be all bah humbug because really it has been a great Christmas.  Was a really stressful year and I got into the Christmas spirit early.  We put up two trees and we really wanted to celebrate the wonderful holiday and enjoy the family time. The festivities started on Sunday with a […]

Wonderful Holiday Season


Okay I don’t want to jinx things and life is far from perfect but: I have been feeling great since they removed the stents or drains or whatever.  The nurses that remembered me from my first time through told me how sick I was and how lucky I am.  I truly feel lucky and blessed. […]

Friday the 13th


I hate Friday the 13th.  I am not extremely superstitious although my dad was.  Knowing what I know now I guess I would say it was a special interest of his.  He was fascinated by all different superstitions and supernatural occurrences.  I never really cared much for it all.

Wordless Wednesday – Happy Thanksgiving

Wordless Wednesday – Happy Thanksgiving


I am thankful for all of the support and friendship that we receive online! I am thankful for our health. I am thankful for a job, food on the table and a roof over our heads. I am thankful for my family, especially my son. (see turkey he drew when about 3? below 🙂 )

Thanksgiving (not so Happy)


I was going to post about Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving but then I decided that wouldn’t be much fun for any of us.  So I decided to post the story today, a week before Thanksgiving.  On Thanksgiving I will post our current tradition which will be much more fun for all of us on the holiday. […]
