Long time no blog
Wednesday, April 11, 2018      4 comments

It's been a VERY long time since I've blogged, and this will be short and sweet. We helped our son move to Chicago in December during the absolute coldest time of the year there. In fact, it was -16 degrees during the one day we had to walk ar... Read more
Alaskan adventure
Monday, August 14, 2017      4 comments

My husband and I were very lucky to have the opportunity to take a cruise to Alaska (roundtrip from Seattle). We went to Juneau, Skagway, and Victoria (British Columbia). I'm really not that much of a naturalist, so this was something quite di... Read more

It's pretty hard to describe the joy we experienced from our daughter's wedding a week ago, so I'll post pics instead. The ceremony was beautiful and meaningful. The rabbi that married us 28 years ago, did our daughter's baby naming and both o... Read more
Maximum stress time
Thursday, February 09, 2017      2 comments

In commenting on a friend's blog, I realize that it helps to write about what is going on in my life. I have hit a maximum stress point, yet again. My 25-yr old daughter had a tonsillectomy last Thursday to try to resolve persistent health iss... Read more
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

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

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

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

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

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
