Missing my mother-in-law
Saturday, October 15, 2016      8 comments

My mother-in-law, Ruth, passed away peacefully in her sleep Tuesday night. She was 94 years old. Her health had been declining, and she developed a severe case of shingles that took too much of a toll on her already-fragile body. Ruth was s... Read more
The Good and the Bad
Saturday, October 08, 2016      2 comments

The Good - My son had his cataract surgery on Friday. It went very well, with no complications, thank goodness. He's doing a great job with taking his eye drops right on time and sleeping with the eye shield (to protect the eye) at night. He ... Read more

Thankfully, my husband is doing very well 15 weeks out of surgery (emergency quadruple bypass). He is still attending cardiac rehab classes 3 times/week and only has about 8 more sessions left to go. He also has an appointment with his cardiol... Read more
Mended Heart - My husband's surgery
Tuesday, June 28, 2016      7 comments

My husband had been experiencing some pressure in his chest during exercising (while going uphill) and some pressure in his lower arms. He never really called it "pain." After the third time, I nagged him to call the doctor for a check-up. ... Read more
Graduation!
Monday, May 23, 2016      8 comments

We had the wonderful pleasure of attending our son's college graduation last week! Four years have never flown by so quickly. It seems like just yesterday that we left him at his dorm to start his freshman year, and returned home to an empty h... Read more
Spring Catch up/American Idol thoughts
Friday, April 08, 2016      4 comments

It's been so long since I last blogged (funny how that became a verb...)! Spring weather has been very roller coaster-ish here. Warm, cold, warm, snowflakes....you get the picture. We did have some phenomenal cherry blossoms though. So ephem... Read more
Blizzard 2016
Monday, January 25, 2016      5 comments

Well, this blizzard was quite a doozy. We were extremely fortunate that we never lost power during this event. Part of the blizzard forecast was for heavy, wet snow, which would have knocked out powerlines for sure. Luckily, we ended up with ... Read more
Snowmageddon part 2
Wednesday, January 20, 2016      5 comments

Just when we thought we were safe from historic snowstorms....Snowmageddon hit the Washington DC area in 2010 - seemingly, just a few years ago. Now we're facing another "historic" storm. Unfortunately, I live in the area in which current predi... Read more
My Grandma
Sunday, January 03, 2016      3 comments

I'm not sure why, but my Grandma used to say that she would never live long enough to see my brother's Bar Mitzvah. Not only did she live to see him turn 54, she lived to see 6 great-grandchildren born. Sadly, Grandma passed away last w... Read more
Chanukah
Wednesday, December 09, 2015      3 comments

Tonight will be the 4th night of Chanukah. So weird not having our kids home to celebrate with us. No one is arguing over who will light the candles, lol! We did have our daughter, her bf, and her roommate over for the second night. It ... Read more
Boston!

We have been trying to take small trips in the fall since our youngest started college. We had been picking places that were a 3-hour drive or less from our home. This year, it was my turn to pick. I had been wanting to go to Boston forever (... Read more
A quick complaint
Tuesday, September 22, 2015      2 comments

It would be so much easier for me to exercise (and look forward to exercising) if I didn't have joint pain. Mini-rant over, and off to go use the elliptical. Thanks for listening.... Read more
A great loss.
Tuesday, August 25, 2015      2 comments

My son was visiting with a friend Sunday night. Suddenly, I received a text from him telling me that a 21-year old friend of his from college died. I called him immediately and wanted to pick him up. He said that he was ok to drive and would ... Read more
Beach and catch up
Tuesday, July 28, 2015      3 comments

We went on a family vacation to Rehoboth Beach in DE two weeks ago. I'm just catching up on things now, and found that I have some time to share pictures. We brought along our daughter's bf this time. It was so nice to have him along; he fits... Read more
Better
Thursday, June 11, 2015      4 comments

Having a better week so far. My aunt really doesn't like the nursing home...I really think a lot has to do w/the realization that this will be her permanent home. Doing what I can to visit and help, but her OCD has kicked into overdrive becaus... Read more
