Nana to the rescue again last night! This time GS2 decided it would be more appropriate to sleep ON me than the bed. I beefed up my sleeping mat between the twin beds and was much more comfortable. As the three of us were discussing things, as... Read more

No, not the "I forgot" kind. As I was typing this morning I noticed a red spot on my hand and closed my fist to see if it was bruised. I had Nana hands! My mother's hands My Nana's hands. When did my skin start thinning so I cou... Read more

Caretaker. Caregiver. It's been 3 months since I "retired" to care for my husband. I have accepted things I must do to keep him going. I haven't given full thought to the things that should keep me going. Sometimes I feel I've lost my mind and... Read more

Does anyone else have difficulties with all these pop ups? If it's my computer, I'll take the hint that it's getting old. It took me almost 5 minutes to put in my simple breakfast in the nutrition tracker. I had to wait for the commercials on ... Read more

I enjoyed my snoventure this week. I had fun all by myself making my snownana and following her adventures even though she is now headless! DD1 was in and out of the hospital again. The doctors say she should deliver in the next week or two... Read more
I've been thinking about playgrounds and came up with a plan.

Spark has been my emotional playground. I've spread some joy, vented, asked questions and given answers while running around in the grass. I've jumped on the spinning thing that you have to hang on to for dear life or you'll be flung off. (Fat L... Read more
Snownana has the weight of the world on her shoulders.

Funny that nature took my snow build and changed it up to follow my life. What gives? Is there something at work here showing me how things are going? I built a robust, solid "replica". ... Read more

I had tables turned on me yesterday. I am usually the one to go the extra step or out of my way to help someone. My snow thrower stopped working at the end (thank goodness!) of the last big snow. I scheduled a service to come to my home bu... Read more

This past night I slept on the floor. Not because I couldn't take DH's twists and turns although I could hear him getting up and the squeak of his walker wheels. He had a treatment at home yesterday and the steroids give him some jitters and... Read more

I managed over 700 calories burned. My poor metal peacock was hiding behind the covered bushes. The poor squirrels could not find their stashes.... Read more
Snow is pretty (until you think you want to go out into it).

Sigh. I can't face another shovelful today. This is a nice, wet, stick to the trees blanket that upon last inquiry on the NOAA site was supposed to be much less than I have. I missed my window to get to the pool. The rest of the day is spo... Read more
Shopping at the big box hardware stores with DH on electric wheels. SIgh.

No one need say "I told you so". I told myself as I offered the excursion. I forgot using the electric cart would give the man superhuman abilities. He could sit and read any label he wanted. Save his energy. At the "orange" store the cart ... Read more
