I have 11 days to the end of my current challenge. I am trying to separate acceptance and calmness. I am still not wholly accepting my current situation but find that if I don't stress about what I can't change, I feel a bit better. Part ... Read more
I've become the vinyl 45 with a scratch.

I still have 45's. Really. I even have something to play them on. The Eggplant that Ate Chicago. Monster Mash Do You Want to Dance? Lady Godiva. I've got quite a playlist in my head but my personal grooves have a scratch. I keep ... Read more

It's only three days into the new week and already I've burnt up 7! Long story short. Helped DD1 with kids at 5 am Sunday as the 2 year old decided to reject the bag of mini peppers he ate when she wasn't looking! It was her first time wi... Read more

DH's boss called and they are going to start delivering the boxes they packed for him to go through at his leisure. He's worked for the government for 40+ years so although he's retired, he's still part of the family and will be welcomed back in... Read more

About 20 years ago, trying to get the man to eat better, I started using threats like: If your toes fall off I'm not helping you walk. If your stroke out, I'm not wiping your drool. If your kidneys go you'd better find someone else to driv... Read more

My life is surprisingly busy. For example, yesterday I went to the pool at 6:30, home by 8:30. Left at 10:30 to take DH to his PT (I worked out there, too) we stopped for lunch and were home by 2. I left at 2:45 to get my carotids ultrasound ... Read more

I am not going to take classes or yoga or whatever the heck else there is out there to learn calmness. I tend to give others the advice I should follow myself. FIFI sent me a message about my reaction to my stress not helping me. She was right a... Read more
I wish everyone had a Mother's Day like I've had.

I read ONEKIDSMOM's blog and think she had one of the better Mother's Days. How wonderful to do what we are supposed to do, be appreciated and make the best of it? I've been pretty grumpy lately, all holidays have not been observed by DH. I... Read more

I have been working out strength training at the PT gym and am starting to feel some results, one NSV! Sleep has been difficult as DH has nighttime problems. His hands don't work well; it takes a good bit of adjustment to roll over or to ge... Read more

Gabe's parents, kids I knew as toddlers, have made the decision that he wouldn't want to stay as he is. My daughter spent some time tonight holding his hand and hugging his parents. Our houses are heartbroken. Your prayers will help him o... Read more
Prayers might help a friend. And you know I'm not the prayin' kind.

Gabe came into my living room as a cute, blonde baby in car seat and has grown to a strapping 11 year old funny man. I've known his dad since he was 3 as my DD2's best friend. Gabe collapsed at school last week and suffered a ruptured cereb... Read more
