When I think about Christmas time, I think about the Peanuts Gang standing around the tree singing Vince Guaraldi's "Christmas Time is Here". It makes me feel very nostalgic. As a little girl I loved sitting in my jammies, with wet hair down my back from my bath, watching a little tv with rabbit ears, … Continue reading Christmas time is here
It's Thanksgiving week. Yep, another Thanksgiving will come and go and I will try to get excited about all of the gratitude that I feel! I gotta admit that the last several months I have not "felt" the gratitude that I really feel. Does that make any sense? I mean that there are a lot … Continue reading tHANKS-GIVING
What you will find below I started over 2 weeks ago. I am still struggling to find my words, but what happened to me today absolutely shattered me and has made my internal rage fire out of control. Most people are unaware that Mike has had some recent health issues and out of respect for … Continue reading This is Hard For Me
Topics this week have been tough for me to nail down. There are so many options; COVID-19, mask wearing, political opinions, missing children, so much news, both local and national. For instance, are the rumors true that the City of Salina is really broke?? I hear rumor after rumor with little to no information to … Continue reading No More MLM Pills
"Toot toot Tootsie, good-bye! Toot toot Tootsie, don't cry!"....I think I was 7, but then again, everything happened at 7....pretty sure that's when I walked into Gram's house and I heard the console stereo belting out Al Jolson singing Toot Toot Tootsie! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fak30w6cUFY The video is kind of amusing! I thought that was the funniest … Continue reading Tootsie
Like many of you, part of my Christmas tradition was to create and send the standard Christmas photo card or letter to all of my friends and family but last year was different and this year isn't looking any more promising. The sad truth is that the older I get, the more I realize that … Continue reading No Merry Christmas Letter….but Merry Christmas!
I'm feeling like I don't want to roll in this world today....or possibly tomorrow and maybe even the next day!! I go through stages where the stimulation of the outside world makes my insides shake like I am standing on the edge of Niagara Falls feeling the earth rumble! I'm there! I wouldn't say it's … Continue reading Grumpy … … …
OK!! Kids listen!! This is really how life works! Today, I am the fireman. I have been putting out the fires at work, after a long/short night letting my daughter catch up on some sleep, while I stayed up with my brand new granddaughter, Allie Ann! I got home at almost 2 am and finally … Continue reading THAT’S ALL FOR TODAY!!
The wind is blowing from the southwest this morning and the Fall weather feels more like Winter is right behind. Normally, Mike is the one who gets up and goes out to the garage to feed the dogs, but this week he is gone and I have been up in the dark to feed that … Continue reading Worrying …. It Doesn’t Change A Thing!
This has been a summer like no other. I have worked more this year than I ever thought my body could possibly take. I sleep away the weekends because I can't move and I have missed more sunny days because of sleeping the weekend away than I care to remember. I am thankful for the … Continue reading Not Sure What to Call This One….
I've been thinking a lot lately about my love of the English language and how when I was a kid I would read a Thesaurus just for fun. Somehow in our attempt to "simplify" everything we have created an entire language with emojis and I doubt anyone under the age of 20 knows what a … Continue reading 🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪
2019.. update before I repost. My lofty goal is the same on this 5th year of Dad's earthly exit... I have been sick in bed for 6 days now....it makes the reality worse because he was my first call when I got sick. Here's to some zinc, vitamin C, and hot tea. I miss you … Continue reading Today
Originally posted May 1, 2018. Reposting When I was a little girl I looked forward to the first of May with more happiness and anticipation than I did Christmas!! It was my chance to sneak in and surprise those I loved and it was the best feeling of the entire year!! If it happened to … Continue reading IT’S BELTANE!!! IT’S MAY DAY!!
I require a lot of hugs! I require hand holding, hugs, affection and to feel like I’m still useful. This is what fills my heart and literally fills my tank. My blood pressure goes down, my dopamine level goes up and I feel like I can take a deep breath. I feel like I’ve been … Continue reading Quick
I've been thinking, again. I have been watching and waiting and hoping, again. I have given a lot of thought to the friendships in my life and I have come up with the differences in "friendships of old and friendships of Facebook". This is a horrible time in our history in my opinion. I have … Continue reading Fallout
I have been thinking a lot today about the journey I have taken in the last 30 years. Granted, I haven't taken it alone and for that I am eternally grateful, but man, oh man have their been twists and turns! I was thinking about how we got engaged and married in 6 whirlwind weeks. … Continue reading 10,950 days
I don't know if you have noticed or not, but lately my writing has been lax. Not really just lax, but few and far between. This happens to me when I feel completely overwhelmed by life and the sheer amount of topics that are weighing heavily on my mind. There is no doubt that it … Continue reading Today is your day to think
Warning! This could piss you off. Don’t care. I’m not looking for a fight and I’m not angry with anyone except people who continually make snarky comments toward what I will call, my group of people! I am so overly happy for people who never have to know what it’s like to live inside a … Continue reading You do You my Chickens
