It's an odd Christmas this year. DD2 went to the UK with her DH for Christmas and DD1, with children, is changing up how they celebrate the holiday. Family drama has them not speaking to each other . We're in a holding pattern with DD2 who has m... Read more

Busy, busy. Right back into the swing of things. DH and his PT had long talks about what he wants to accomplish next. I heard him say he'd like to be able to drive again so I can be "free" for a while. Now if only I could get him to feel the s... Read more

Ack! It's 15 degrees outside this morning! Where are my ocean sounds, warm breezes? I had to laugh at some reality and revelations last night. Although the airline does not offer 1st class, due to DH's need for assistance, we were seat... Read more

Sleeping for 7 hours straight on an incline of pillows. A 3 year old GS who wears superhero capes and not much else. Feeling just crummy enough to turn down snacks. A 6 year old GS who proclaims he is an expert at chess. Ha... Read more

We are 34 strong now. A few were missing due to work schedules or illness. I managed to sit it out and have totally lost my voice. This also meant I could leave early and not have to clean up! A good ploy for not eating things while cleaning. No... Read more
