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 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

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

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
