Beauty and Grace
When I found out my SIL had pancreatic cancer Saturday, my first reaction was to panic. Although stoic and silent on the outside I could feel myself beginning to unravel on the inside. I knew I had to keep it together for the others but I wanted... Read more
What My Fuss Was All About...
I am uploading this blog from my phone so if anything looks screwy, that's why! But just so nobody thinks I'm a complete scrooge when it comes to winter, I wanted to post a few pics I have taken since this season began. OK, maybe I AM a scrooge ... Read more
Snow Cones, Anyone?
It's difficult getting out of bed when it is -11 outside. Without wind chill. The house was warm, sure, but knowing I would eventually have to open the front door and go out IN it made me want to bury my head under the covers and go back to Dr... Read more
Fighting The Urge To Indulge...
Yeah, I noticed some of my pants not fitting very well lately. I walked past Brian the other day and he said, "What's wrong with your jeans?" I said, "Huh?" and he said, "They're hangin' a little strange." I ran to the mirror and turned aroun... Read more
And Then There Is This...
I found out that I have clinicals in March. This is where I will go for three days and work side-by-side with someone to get a feel for the job I am studying for. No sweat. I did this when I was studying for my nursing license. Then the bom... Read more
I'm thinking about quitting school and becoming a professional wrestler. Think about it. I won't have to be up every night til the wee hours of the morning studying and I can take my frustrations out in the ring. Like, if I was going to be a ... Read more
There are a lot of things I could write about as I sit here, some happy, some sad, as I pull my blanket a little tighter around me. I decided to change my Christmas background (finally) to thoughts of spring (it's a little flower that sprouted ... Read more
I Dropped A Kidney Somewhere...
No one told me once you hit 45 that everything was going to fall apart...I mean literally. Body parts seem to start malfunctioning or squeaking or literally falling off, much to your freaked-out dismay. You try to go have them fixed or glued b... Read more
Momma Said There'd Be Days...
There was a sheet of ice on my front porch steps this morning. Looking down at them, holding five textbooks, an umbrella, my lunch box, my keys and my purse, I realized I had several options:
a) Attempt to nonchalantly go down them and jus... Read more
Happy Thanksgiving, guys. :)
I may not get a chance to get back on here before the holiday goes full swing so I wanted to take advantage of the few moments I have now. I don't get much time these days to stomp around this neck of the fore... Read more
The Big Picture
I think it was Forrest Gump who said, "I'm pretty tired. Think I'll go home now." Or something to that effect. Anyways, I know what he meant. You get tired of runnin'. For me, runnin' is trying to get everything done during the day or THINK... Read more
And Plum Pudding...
Most people don't know that I had rhotacism as a child. And it definitely sounds alot worse than what it is, lol, but it is the inability to pronounce the letter "R." Looking back now, I prefer to believe that I sounded like someone from Bosto... Read more
And then there was Thursday.
It seems Thursdays are my day of solitude. After a long day of school and the tedious drive home, I usually fall through the door and throw my books on the table. Off come the shoes, the bra, the ponytail and ... Read more
A Day For S'Mores...
What a week! It has flown by, just like so many weeks before. I have fallen off the bandwagon a tad bit, getting lured in with a class pizza party and pumpkin cookies that magically appeared on a paper plate by my computer. I ate one. (Kinda... Read more
How 'Bout THEM Beans?!
I want to start off by saying thank you to everyone. All of you, who have encouraged me through my blogs, my SparkPage, the goodies...once again, each of you has given me the proverbial "glitter in my step" and have made me feel very lucky (AND... Read more
