I have several friends with major issues in their lives right now. I am also missing my kids and grandsons terribly today (they left at 10 AM). Combined with what's going on at work, it's all got me feeling pretty down.
I am working on so... Read more
My son, daughter-in-law, and grandsons arrived in PA. They are staying at my house for one night, then going to the in-laws for a week, and then back to my house for a week.
Frankie (9 months old) got his first haircut at my house. Our fr... Read more
I did not get as much done around the house as I wanted to, but I did get some things done.
We got a new area rug for the living room. My grandsons are coming to visit this month and Frankie, who is 9 months old, is trying to crawl. We ha... Read more
Not too much going on today. Work is difficult - a very down atmosphere right now. Right now our weather matches - yet another thunderstorm. It's been a very wet summer here. I guess I'll have to force an attitude adjustment.
I wrote a follow-up blog to yesterday's but I decided I don't want to start the week on a negative note. Instead I will start with some joy. I took this picture during our video chat last week. My son, DIL, and my two grandsons will be here f... Read more
Well, I had a lousy 4th of July. What was supposed to be a day with just my daughter and her partner turned into 7 other relatives coming too. I had to go shopping that morning because I didn't have enough food for all the additional people. ... Read more
Thanks for all the support on yesterday's blog.
I didn't get to sleep until after midnight last night. I had today off, though, so I deliberately stayed in bed very late. I didn't sleep the whole time, but at least I got rest. I felt sic... Read more
I've been hiding. From here, from myself, from the world. I need to get my "stuff" together, but I can't seem to do it for even one full day. Lately my life feels like it's always one step forward, two steps back. There is a lot swirling aro... Read more
05-25-2015 Memorial Day
I attended my first funeral when I was 10 years old. The Mahers were friends of my grandparents. I don't remember much about that day, except for two things. One was the 21-gun salute at the gravesite. The second is that it was the only day ... Read more
It was a nice Sunday. My oldest son and his wife and my daughter and her partner came over for a barbeque. It's not often that I get all of them together, without any nieces, nephews or cousins. We had a great meal and visit.
We also did... Read more
In honor of National Siblings Day yesterday, the one of my siblings you would least expect to posted this picture of us. (He is the one looking away from the camera.)

Yes, it's been a while and it's no longer the 26th, but that was my birthday and what I want to post about right now. This was my first birthday since my dad passed away from complications due to Parkinson's last May.
I am usually off on F... Read more
Another Sunday means another video call with my grandsons this evening. I can't wait. I look forward to this all day on Sunday.
Gino is toilet training and his dad sent me this picture earlier this week.
DH seems to be OK. I am being very careful. I have not walked on the driveway at all this week. I am also very careful in our parking lot at work. I am parking closer to the building than I was so that I have a shorter walk right now. I may... Read more
02-02-2015 thru 02-04-2015
On Monday we had freezing rain and then rapidly dropping temperatures, which turned lots of areas into a sheet of ice. I was really stressed about driving, but the roads were mostly OK. Our driveway looked very icy, so I slowly and carefully n... Read more
