I’ve had several jobs in my life along with the role of mommy and wife. Ironically, the last two I’ve had were because of my husbands’ gregarious personality. The job before the job I have now came to me at a perfect time in my life. I was working in a place where it was […]
Waking this morning to loud cracks and crashes of thunder, streaks of lightening flashing across the sky. Torrents of rain as we haven’t seen for months falling on the brown summer grass, dormant in the blazing heat. The garden looks happy.
You have to go check out Helen. She’s amazing. Go back to the beginning and see how this woman has battled with her sanity and come out incredibly whole. She’s a wonder.
Youngest son WON again!!! Whoooo hoooo! He started in 12th place and won in the last turn…! Hubby just called. Said he was a crowd pleaser – the fair is still there and they had a big crowd – all cheering for son! I’m so tickled for him. Will have to watch the CD when […]
Have I mentioned that I hate bugs? I. Hate. Bugs. They hate me – or love me, depending on your perspective. Hubby and I can be outside standing right next to each other and the flies and mosquitos will start eating me alive. I’ll say, “Aren’t the bugs biting you?”… and I’ll get back, “What […]
Remembering when I was invisible brought to mind a reaccuring dream I have. I get it about once a year and there doesn’t seem to be a particular incident that brings it on or any special time of year that links to it. I can breath underwater. Yep. As in a fish. But I’m not […]
I remember the time I found out I could be invisible. It was truly a wonder! I was five-years-old and I figured out if I stood on my stepstool next to the bathroom sink, I could look in the mirror and spy on my parents and they couldn’t see me! I mean, how cool is […]
He WON! These races are a bit different, as you don’t go by track points leader (which he is) to decide where you start the main race (he starts in the back since he’s the leader). This race they draw straws – and he ended up in the front, so he just had to keep […]
Oldest son informed me today that he’s to graduate from college in a week. He’ll be done. Nine hard years of work (nine years of hard work?)… he claims he wanted to get the “full-four-year-college-experience”. Have I mentioned all of my children are smart-asses? Yeah. It’s like that. OS also informed me he’ll be moving […]
He’s racing again. Tonight it’s at the usual track, only it’s a special race because it’s the county fair. Hope he has a good night. Nothing breaks. Hoping they don’t water the track right before his race… I’m just waiting for the phone call.
