Helena was so excited this morning. I took her yesterday to the store and she picked out what she wanted to take to school as a treat. She wasn't even there for 2 hours and all of Redstone Arsenal is on lock down. There is an active shooter n... Read more
How Come Time Goes By Faster Each Year?
Friday, June 23, 2017      6 comments

I remember as a kid that summers seemed to last forever. Then it took forever for Christmas to come. I grew up, graduated, married and had 2 babies. Time from that point on seemed to go faster and faster. I thought that when my girls graduat... Read more
Improvements are Slow but Sure
Wednesday, June 14, 2017      4 comments

I'm making improvements. Granted, sometimes I feel like the tortoise, but didn't he win the race? I've gotten up early each morning this week and did something healthy for myself. I tried a few new things. I worried about less. I loved more... Read more
Houston...We Have a Problem
Sunday, May 28, 2017      5 comments

Right here and right now I have to change my mindset a bit. My girls went on a 4-day weekend to a friend's house. No daughter or granddaughter to clean up after, etc. So...what did I do the 1st 2 days? Mostly housework. Granted, it was nice... Read more
Need Suggestions ASAP
Tuesday, May 23, 2017      3 comments

All year, I looked for a Medicaid psychiatrist. I saw her for the first time in April and she called in three one-month prescriptions for me that I absolutely need to take. I couldn't get back in to see her until yesterday. Meanwhile, my pres... Read more

Friday, May 12, 2017      4 comments

I've been trying hard this year to make small changes in my life. I can look back at the last 4.5 months and see some changes, however small they may be. A little weight is off. I've weeded out things in the house that I don't know why I was ... Read more
Soap Opera Update
Thursday, May 04, 2017      6 comments

I realized that I feel that I am a character on a soap opera. So many twists and turns in my life lately. People coming in from all sides to throw another monkey wrench in my life. And then I am the nanny that takes children to the park and s... Read more

I have been so busy the past few weeks, with both of my daughters' birthdays, Easter, getting ready for and helping out with an indoor yard sale...I have been going to bed at 8:30-9:00 every night. I know I am over-booked because I lost my hand... Read more
Same Old...Same Old
Saturday, April 08, 2017      4 comments

I found myself overbooked AGAIN this week. I realized it when I was driving and passed my exit more than once this week. NOY GOOD. I like to stay busy, but not this busy. So, it's time to sit and look at how I am scheduling, why I plan thing... Read more
Overdue
Wednesday, March 29, 2017      2 comments

I am way overdue on updating. My right had went from a full cast to a short cast to a brace that's uncomfortable. I can't type with it on, so, shhh, I took it off for awhile. I start therapy now. Three times a week for a half hour about 40 ... Read more
Things Remembered

I had some kitchen clean up to do this morning. I just felt like turning on the radio; I get tired of the same old TV after a while. I forgot how dancing around to the radio made work go easier/faster. I forgot how easy it was to burn some mor... Read more

Little Difficulty
Friday, March 17, 2017      4 comments

I had my operation on my right thumb a week ago last Tuesday. It was a little more involved and difficult, as I am right-handed. It didn't take me long to climb the walls. The time change, the weather growing bitter cold and the pain and frus... Read more
Marching Along 2017
Monday, March 06, 2017      3 comments

I struggled the month of February. I always do; it's the longest month of the year for me. I finally figured that I probably have SAD and that contributes to it. No motivation, no energy, no desire to socialize...that was me. Now it's al... Read more
Up and Down
Friday, February 24, 2017      4 comments

I started feeling more "up" and feeling like I was accomplishing something. Then the bottom fell out again. DH cancelled all my health insurance and blamed it on me. I've been scrambling to find doctors who will continue my meds and let me ha... Read more
