I was exhausted last night and went to bed early. Therefore, I woke up early, and thinking it was 6 am, I started the day by taking my shower and dressing. When I came in the kitchen for coffee, I had my glasses on and realized that it was 5 a... Read more

Monday, December 22, 2014      5 comments

It's been a busy, fun week. Helena and Sherry have been such a joy to have around. I really think of Helena was around for a couple more weeks, she'd be crawling. She's enthralled with Lulu and wants to go after her. I am going to have such ... Read more

I've been busy, busy, busy lately. I can't help but play with Helena as much as I can. But...I could've drank more water. I could have gotten more steps in. As in many cases in my life, I got on the scale to find that I have gained weight. ... Read more

Some Things I Don't Want to Know

Sunday, December 14, 2014      10 comments

I don't want to see my activity tracker report tomorrow. Most days this week, I know I got close to getting in my 10,000 steps...but no cigar. And I was getting to the point where I would hit at least 12,000 a couple days. With my daughte... Read more

WOAH! A Lost Day!

Saturday, December 13, 2014      3 comments

It's been a busy, stressful week. Thank goodness that I have my sunshine with me. Helena was in her Momma's arms yesterday and actually reached out to me for me to hold her. That in itself is such a great present! Sherry said that Helena had... Read more

Tuesday, December 09, 2014      7 comments

Such a busy, busy week last week! It was so busy that I confused some times and didn't help others as I should have, but I made it through. My Sarah came in Friday night. She went right to the hospital to see her paternal grandma who is... Read more

Balance in Life

Friday, December 05, 2014      4 comments

As I read a few blogs this morning, I realized quickly that there was a common basic theme. Many people are a bit frazzled right now, including me. I went on to look up my day's motivational quote and came up with this: Problems arise in... Read more

Life Happens

Thursday, December 04, 2014      3 comments

I know there's a saying about life getting in the way. It has just reminded me that I have to go with the flow and take it as it comes. This Saturday is my church's English Tea Fundraiser. Today and tomorrow we'll be getting the hall and ... Read more

Didn't Listen

Saturday, November 29, 2014      10 comments

At my last appointment, my doctor told me that winter is generally not a good time to change up certain medicines. I didn't listen; I thought I would try lowering my dosage of Zoloft. At the end of the year and at birthdays, most people ... Read more

Knew it was Coming

Tuesday, November 25, 2014      5 comments

Sometimes I know things will happen soon. But, with this one, I still wasn't ready! I was so hoping Helena would take a little more time even though I knew before she was born that she is intelligent. Read more

the Week in Review November 24, 2014

Monday, November 24, 2014      5 comments

I've got a lot of projects going on right now. It's a good thing I got used to multi-tasking years ago. This is probably saving me right now. I sort of volunteered myself to have Thanksgiving dinner here. It's been pretty good motivation, ho... Read more
