Relay for Life always breaks me...that's not negative.
Annual Relay for Life here was last night. I've only attended these in our home town for many years, and I have no idea how it compares to others. I only know it is a night filled with tears and laughter and fun and passion.
The first lap... Read more
No longer sick...certainly depressed...and mostly angry.
Warning. Post is a downer. You may want to just skip it.
I can't speak of the horrific tragedies our nation is suffering.
I can't breathe. It is so overwhelming.
So much hate.
Who is guilty? Certainly the shooters, both law enf... Read more
Can't seem to care too much about anything today.
I had been sick for 5 or 6 days, but am doing fine now. But I just couldn't seem to get into any gear today. In fact, I sat in my rocking chair this morning (I pray every morning) and fell back asleep for an hour!
I worked a little with p... Read more
Our donation to our local Relay for Life Auction July 15
Besides walking the Relay and donating funds, we always donate something to the Relay for Life auction. This year it is a "room" for American Girl dolls.
The 3 walls have a "Frozen" theme (look outside the window)!
My husband built the f... Read more
The photo on my Facebook page today shows my family's personal heroes.
Included are my dad, husband, brothers, nephews.
I put this together because my nephew, injured in the Gulf war, said he's sick of people saying "Make America Great Again." -- He says this country IS great and anyone who doesn't think so shoul... Read more
My food, weight, health was all over the place this week.
I got sick on Thursday morning.
For almost 4 days I have downed a couple of packages of Ramen Noodles every day. That made double or triple the carbs I usually eat daily, but I drank my water.
I had my first official weight gain (n... Read more
My 3 year old grandson came for a "Tea Party Snack" today.
When his daddy picked him up from daycare, he asked if he could go to grandma's house. My son told him they had to get home. But, little Nathan said, I need a snack and grandma Loud has tea party snacks with me. I'm hungry.
So my son cal... Read more
Not much of a country fan.
...but visited my brother at his American Legion Post last night, and it is all about country there.
My brother is VERY country now, and I enjoyed it! ... Read more
Going out of town to meet up with some siblings, and bringing one back home.
My brother belongs to an American Legion post out of town, so we occasionally like to join him for a meal and some dancing and some karaoke (hahahaha). When I return in a couple of days I'll bring my sister back to stay with us for about a week... Read more
All dads have a story!
When I was born my dad was serving his country in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in the U.S. Navy. He would not return home until I was almost 4 years old. He sent these tiny white plastic records a couple of times a year, speaking to my sist... Read more
I "trick myself" -- do you?
I trick myself in many ways. Of course it's no secret, but it helps. Just as one may set their morning alarm 10 minutes early...so that they can sleep 10 more minutes....may work for them, because it "feels" like they got to sleep longer.

Hannah's mouth is healing quickly...then it got even better.
I went over to swim at my son's house today...a couple of my daughters came in from out of town for my birthday (I'm 73 today. WHAT?!!) and her mouth is healing nicely from her surgery a couple of days ago.
Unfortunately, her basketball ca... Read more
Granddaughter's surgery went way better than expected! (warning: graphic photo)
Thank you, thank you, thank you all for positive thoughts, prayers and caring!
Hannah was so frightened this morning, but bless her heart, she was being brave.
The surgeon was very pleased. He said that the growth did NOT have a bas... Read more
Sick to my stomach with fear.
Today my 9 year old granddaughter when to her orthodontist appointment. When examining her mouth, they found a HUGE cyst in the back of her mouth, by her back molars. They showed it to my DIL and she couldn't believe her eyes. After Hannah le... Read more
