Monday, August 13, 2012      7 comments

I've been feeling a bit anxious about the epidural I'm to get this Thursday....I don't like needles and the thought of one being stuck into my spine turns my stomach. So why am I having it done? I have a pinched nerve, which is causing pain do... Read more

Today, I promise I will not quit. I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey. I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of mys... Read more

My summer beach experience

Wednesday, August 01, 2012      3 comments

I promised myself I would blog a bit about the past couple of weeks. About two weeks ago I flew (no, not on a broom) to Tennessee and my DD and I drove her two young ‘uns to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. My DH (and dog) and other children... Read more

Miscellaneous stuff

Monday, July 09, 2012      4 comments

I went to the 'back' dr this morning. He confirmed that my back probably isn't causing my leg pain, although it is possible. (How's that for covering your bases?) After poking, prodding and squeezing my leg, he gave me a couple of samples of... Read more

My Colorado trip last week

Monday, June 25, 2012      3 comments

Last Monday (the 18th) I left the house at 4:30 a.m. for the near-2 hr drive to the airport. It didn’t take too long to get through the baggage check-in and security section, and I was finally on my way. Two of my sisters and I met up in Denv... Read more

Don't catch a baseball with your jaw. I've posted a picture taken yesterday, after having caught the ball Monday evening. The bruises go down to my collar bone. em... <a href=Read more

Baseball and testing

Still having internet access problems..... "Equipment disputes are not protestale" Booooo! Monday evening was the championship game for the 12 yr olds. Josh’s team was the visitors, so they batted first. In fact, Josh batted first, ... Read more

Little League game on 6/9/12

Saturday, June 09, 2012      4 comments

Ok, this morning's championship little league game is over and I'm still steaming. First, some background: The 12 yr olds play 6 innings. There were only 4 teams in that age group, so they played each other a lot during the season. The p... Read more

Little League update - 6/8/12

Friday, June 08, 2012      2 comments

Just a quick note: tomorrow's little league game is supposed to be for the Championship. It's a double-elimination play--off, meaning that when a team loses twice, they're out. I think Josh's (undefeated in the play-offs) team will play a tea... Read more

Baseball, leg, and other stuff

Wednesday, June 06, 2012      6 comments

Just a quick, bragging note. Sunday evening Josh's little league team played a make-up game, and (because we were two minutes late) I missed his homerun! He got the ball to take home. They played again last night (the first of the play-of... Read more

Little League game recap

Friday, June 01, 2012      6 comments

Well, last night’s ballgame was perhaps the most exciting one yet – and Josh has been playing for years. “We” were the visiting team. The home team scored 2 runs in the bottom of the first inning. We finally scored a run in the top of the sec... Read more

As I've mentioned before, DH and I are attending our grandson's baseball travel tournaments. The one over Mother's Day weekend was in the Allentown, PA area, so we spend the night. Unfortunately, the boys lost all 3 games they played. None-th... Read more

DH and I recently told the 6th grade teachers that we feel we aren't really helping them - that it doesn't fit their schedule well for us to come in at a set time on a set day, so we won't be going to help out in that classroom the rest of this ... Read more

Trendy Yarn

Thursday, May 17, 2012      6 comments

Ok, I learned what tready yarn the skein, it looks like it's about 1/2 inch wide, but you pull the width open to find numerous 'holes' into which you knit (and maybe crochet??) I learned how to use that yarn and knit a 'ruffle-y' ... Read more

Babies and Yarn

Thursday, May 17, 2012      5 comments

Busy day at the shelter. Oh, yes, there was the usual cleaning of the kitten room, but I also took extra time with Socks and Cindy. They both have adoptions pending, and hopefully, won't be there when I go back next week. I'll miss them, but ... Read more
