Don't Drive In/Near New York City
DH is often requested to take someone from church to/from airports - often BWI (Baltimore/Washington) which is about 2 hr drive, but sometimes into Washington, D.C. Generally, he can use a car, but occasionally he needs the church's 15 passenge... Read more
School's almost out, so Josh will be playing his last hi school JV game tonight (I think). DH will go there, while I get to attend another of Tyler's games.
Josh is in a travel tournament league for the summer, but I don't off hand remembe... Read more
A brief note about today, 4/26
Up at 5:00 a.m. to be at the polling place before 6:00 (DH and I work the polls, and today was Pennsylvania's primary). Had a huge turnout for a primary, so we were very busy all day. Closed polls at 8:00 p.m. but last voter voted about 8:15 (... Read more
Busy, busy, busy. That's my life right now. We went to Josh's (grandson) baseball game late yesterday afternoon. It was a very good game - there were zero runs scored for the first four innings, then Josh's team scored two in the top of the 5... Read more
Odds and Ends in my life
If it isn't one thing, it's six others. Ok, not really six, and nothing that can't be dealt with. I've had a Kindle Paperwhite for 3 years and love it. I went to charge it again last eve and found that no matter what I did, the only way I can... Read more
"Last" cataract blog
If you read my other cataract blogs, you'll know the dr told me the day after each surgery that I had 20/20 distance vision. I was tickled pink.
Well, once my pupils returned to their normal size and function, that changed. ... Read more
Second Cataract Surgery
Soooo, you might have read my blog about my cataract surgery on the 2nd, and that it went well. That eye is doing well and I'm down to one drop per day in that eye.
On the 14th, I had the other eye done, and am still dropping many, many dr... Read more
Yea! Surgery on first cataract completed today. Just a few, normal, will-soon-go-away side effects: scratchy feeling, tearing (liquid tears), and a foggy film on that eye. After surgery, Dr said it went well, and I did a good job. I though... Read more
Just an FYI about me being on Spark in March
Just an FYI (and request for prayers). Next month I'll go under the knife and hopefully come out with better vision. I have cataracts and am tired of the blurry, cloudy stuff. It really affects everything I do. My surgery dates are the 2nd, ... Read more
Blizzard of 2016
God has blessed us; many of us have not suffered too badly because of this past weekend's horrible storm. Too many people south of here, though, have been flooded and displaced, and my heart goes out to them.
The storm came up the coast fr... Read more
Trip to Utah
For several years, DH and I have driven over 2,000 miles (one way from PA to UT) to watch 2 - 3 men's basketball games at DH's alma mater. We love it! Even driving in the winter isn't necessarily bad.
Because we support the team like that... Read more
Trick or Treating 2015
Our township always has trick or treating on a Thursday night; tonight was it. My youngest came to our house to pass candy out, as she lives upstairs in an apartment and doesn't get kids coming by. She came dressed as a zombie bride, complete ... Read more
Can you stand another Josh baseball blog?
Just like we do all summer, we've been 'living' baseball this fall. I think this weekend was the last one for Fall Ball. Josh (15 yr) is a SUPER ball player - a catcher almost all the time, although he's been known to play 3rd base and left fi... Read more
This weekend - Sept 26 & 27
My 15 yr old grandson plays baseball almost all year 'round.
It's "Fall Ball" right now, and Josh's pl... Read more
Prayer Request for the Middle Eastern Christians
This came through my church.
"This came this morning...Just a few minutes ago I received the following text message on my phone from Sean Malone who leads Crisis Relief International (CRI). We then spoke briefly on the phone and I assured... Read more
