My parents are back in Germany after 6 weeks of vacation with us. My garden looks lovely, my yard is finally fenced in, my house is quiet again and my dogs are walking around puzzling over the loss of these extra nice people. I have been removed... Read more

Beautiful Landscaping

Sunday, June 10, 2007      2 comments

I have been looking around my neighborhood and found some wonderfully landscaped houses. I am not very good with my green thumb, let alone the planning of it all, but I will grab my camera and go out there to take pictures of what I would love ... Read more

English project

Thursday, June 07, 2007      0 comments

My girls just finished their English projects.... one about Catcher in the Rye by Salinger and one about the Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Their views on life are amazing to me, and it is very satisfying to me as a mother to witness th... Read more

The girls and I have had a bunch of talks about finding your way in life, and how to overcome people's ignorance when it comes to environment, destruction of nature, war, being nasty to one another and being intolerant towards one anothers opini... Read more

My teeth itch....

Saturday, May 12, 2007      0 comments

Every bone in my body is sore, and I have developed muscles I didn't know I had.... how did I do that? I started my full time work in the kennels, and have so far moved like a wild banshee, walking dogs, holding them down for medical procedures,... Read more

Working my butt off....

Sunday, May 06, 2007      0 comments

I have been full time at the kennels, and I can't wipe the smile off my face. I have learned so much about dogs. I also learned that I have a great family who took over the laundry, and the dishes, and are happy to see me happy. What else.... I ... Read more

I think I have become invisible to my friends and family. Forever helping them with a problem, not being heard by them if I have one. Feeling sorry for myself? You bet. I feel so sorry for myself, that not even my own mother would remember from ... Read more

Spring is in the air

We all had a wonderful family day yesterday. We hung out, joked a lot, laughed a lot, enjoyed some nice conversations, deep and shallow, and then took a nap. When we all woke up again, we decided to go the YMCA to work out together. I love those... Read more

Restless night

Thursday, March 29, 2007      0 comments

Last night, I was tossing and turning, and waking up every hour thinking I made the wrong job choice, and feeling terrible, and lost. What is going on? I was so excited about it, and when I called my mother yesterday, she was basically saying th... Read more

Found a job....

Wednesday, March 28, 2007      1 comments

Just call me crazy. I didn't even wait to see if they wanted to hire me at the gloomy powerstruggle suit place. I don't think I have time for that stuff. I accepted a job as kennel technician/daycare worker at a big veterinary hospital in the ar... Read more

After years of wanting to join, we finally as a family decided it would be great to do so. Our YMCA offers everything from aerobics, yoga, step (my favorite, although I will have to watch those turns because of my knees), water aerobics, ice rin... Read more

In sickness and in health

Wednesday, February 21, 2007      1 comments

I have been sick for a few days now, and guess what I have found out about myself. I am no longer on a diet, I am living Spark. Every decision I make, I think through first. I consciously drink my water or herb tea, I have a stretch band next to... Read more
