I have several friends with major issues in their lives right now. I am also missing my kids and grandsons terribly today (they left at 10 AM). Combined with what's going on at work, it's all got me feeling pretty down. I am working on so... Read more

My son, daughter-in-law, and grandsons arrived in PA. They are staying at my house for one night, then going to the in-laws for a week, and then back to my house for a week. Frankie (9 months old) got his first haircut at my house. Our fr... Read more

I did not get as much done around the house as I wanted to, but I did get some things done. We got a new area rug for the living room. My grandsons are coming to visit this month and Frankie, who is 9 months old, is trying to crawl. We ha... Read more

Not too much going on today. Work is difficult - a very down atmosphere right now. Right now our weather matches - yet another thunderstorm. It's been a very wet summer here. I guess I'll have to force an attitude adjustment. Read more

I wrote a follow-up blog to yesterday's but I decided I don't want to start the week on a negative note. Instead I will start with some joy. I took this picture during our video chat last week. My son, DIL, and my two grandsons will be here f... Read more

Well, I had a lousy 4th of July. What was supposed to be a day with just my daughter and her partner turned into 7 other relatives coming too. I had to go shopping that morning because I didn't have enough food for all the additional people. ... Read more

Thanks for all the support on yesterday's blog. I didn't get to sleep until after midnight last night. I had today off, though, so I deliberately stayed in bed very late. I didn't sleep the whole time, but at least I got rest. I felt sic... Read more

I've been hiding. From here, from myself, from the world. I need to get my "stuff" together, but I can't seem to do it for even one full day. Lately my life feels like it's always one step forward, two steps back. There is a lot swirling aro... Read more

I attended my first funeral when I was 10 years old. The Mahers were friends of my grandparents. I don't remember much about that day, except for two things. One was the 21-gun salute at the gravesite. The second is that it was the only day ... Read more

It was a nice Sunday. My oldest son and his wife and my daughter and her partner came over for a barbeque. It's not often that I get all of them together, without any nieces, nephews or cousins. We had a great meal and visit. We also did... Read more

Yes, it's been a while and it's no longer the 26th, but that was my birthday and what I want to post about right now. This was my first birthday since my dad passed away from complications due to Parkinson's last May. I am usually off on F... Read more

Another Sunday means another video call with my grandsons this evening. I can't wait. I look forward to this all day on Sunday. Gino is toilet training and his dad sent me this picture earlier this week. Read more

DH seems to be OK. I am being very careful. I have not walked on the driveway at all this week. I am also very careful in our parking lot at work. I am parking closer to the building than I was so that I have a shorter walk right now. I may... Read more

On Monday we had freezing rain and then rapidly dropping temperatures, which turned lots of areas into a sheet of ice. I was really stressed about driving, but the roads were mostly OK. Our driveway looked very icy, so I slowly and carefully n... Read more
