Today was the first day of school for the grandsons. We got ready sooo smoothly, I just couldn't believe it! Of course, it won't always be like that, but I'm definitely grateful for the blessing of a good beginning.
David and Paul were up e... Read more

We got Sean's bus schedule, and it threw us for a... Read more
Ever since we moved here with Dad, our little living room has had a loveseat and a large, comfy recliner. Nothing else for seating. It worked for Dad and us. It worked for moving in David and 2 little boys. Just add beanbags, which they already ... Read more
Yup, I'm crazy AND crazy busy. Crazy for letting myself get so crazy busy! But a week after Labor Day, I'll know it was all worth it!
First, of course, is getting 3 grandsons ready to go back to school on the 20th. Sean will be in full day ... Read more
Just a quick update. I started during this past week added one baby step incrementally each day. 100% success so far. Of course, I'm sure I won't be able to say that forever. And, since I'm not yet fixing ALL the bad habits I've let myself drift... Read more
I'm planning to set up habits to re-establish, one day at a time over the interim between BLC rounds. I'll think them through 5 at a time and then review.

I wasted the round in many ways. I took a nasty fall and got some major injuries... Read more
Maybe. I'm afraid to celebrate, but I am cautiously optimistic. My BLC24 teammates knew the heights and the depths last round of thinking that 11 year-old Marshall would finally be spending school years with dad David and vacations with his moth... Read more
It's definitely past time to catch up my SparkFriends. I wrote some of this on my Sunset Stingays chat thread, but not much. And the rest of you are totally clueless.
Well, my last blog was so positive! I was so excited!!! But within 36 ho... Read more
What a crazy, crazy week this has been! Some of what's gone on, I've shared with my BLC Sunset Stingrays team. The biggest thing of all, though, is what I wasn't free to share until now.
Most of you know that #2 son David moved in with us ... Read more
Two days of severe thunderstorms expected here in Mid-MO. This morning, I got caught in it. We'll see what tomorrow brings!

I'm scared, and I've hardly been able to see through my tears since Monday. Many of you know that my 13-year-old grandson Jakob is a micro-preemie survivor. He was born at 24 weeks 3 days. The only thing he had going for him from a medical stand... Read more
