Marine Anniversary
Sunday, January 29, 2017      4 comments

New Year, new vision

I love the start of the new year..the crispness, the freshness, the newness. I was able to dance the new year in with my hubby at my sister's wedding in Michigan and had a blast. I wanted to be different, and rarely does my husband and I get o... Read more

Counting down to a new tool

Eight more days and I will have bariatric surgery-the sleeve. I am doing my pre-op prep now. As I write this my stomach is growling but I am motivated to a new way of nourishing my body-eating to live, not living to eat. I didn't bother with ... Read more

Another day to give thanks...everyday in my household is Thanksgiving. I do not need a special holiday to be grateful to move in my right mind, flex my muscles, exercise and use my God given talents and just appreciate life and all those around.... Read more

Friday, November 11, 2016      3 comments

Today was a nice day to honor Veterans-including myself for the service to our country. Gotta love the good old USA-we are sometimes like a dysfunctional family, so full of ourselves, forgetting those who fought the fight before us, leaving a c... Read more
Election Day
Tuesday, November 08, 2016      2 comments

So glad this process is going to be over and counting begins in a couple hours. This has been a stressful election year and very eyeopening. It is unfortunate that subtle racism still exists. I have an union negotiated day off and I really do... Read more

Day one of going into eight years of Moma having a new address. I played "A Song for Mama" a lot yesterday, worked and got frustrated with folks and just smiled and sighed when I thought of Moma throughout my "new" normal. When I settle ... Read more

The day I dread and rejoice the most...my Mom's new birthday. I played the Moma song by Boyz to Men on the way home from work. It doesn't get any easier, her presence is felt deep in my heart. I no longer enjoy fall's arrival, just trying to ... Read more

I am returning back from Minnesota from the burial of my father-in-law. Another Dad gone, that is both of our dads in an eight month time span. August was by far the hottest, most trying month for me this year. It was just grueling and as I s... Read more
Forging on...
Friday, August 12, 2016      3 comments

Sometimes you just have to jump in with both feet and say a prayer and keep it moving. I am just forging on. Had some tough revelations in the past few days with my family and it hurt some members to the core. I had to process it, step back, ... Read more
