Chewy is now 11 months old and as big as he'll get. A whopping 9.4 pounds. He was a bundle of energy springing from the floor to the back of my couch then on my head when I had to lay still. He'd bring me these toys and place them in my hand to ... Read more

The smile on my doctor's face when he stepped back from shining a 5,000 watt light bulb into my eye after he made me do handstands with that hazel colored orb! The sigh of relief and pat on the back from DH a we were preparing to leave the ... Read more

Right now the tired boy is snoozing in his chair. He enjoyed his man-time with the guys. He said he laughed the whole time. Good for him. Did he behave? Naw. Ate ice cream one night. Forgot his long-acting insulin one day which made all... Read more

Did I mention I'm alone for 3ish days? Did I mention DH is NOT in a hospital? His pals of 40 years all got together and took him away on a guys trip to their mountain cabins to relive the glory days! No TV is on in my house. I got... Read more

I watched various snippets of ceremonies today. I thought about where I had been, what went on that day and how it felt. This summer DH and I went to the Flight 93 Memorial. It felt raw and fresh then. It still does. Peace, no matter ... Read more

Sparkers, I've been quietly suffering the effects of being 63 and immobile for almost 6 weeks. Once my MD said I could sit, stand and walk again I had been very hesitant to move quickly. Afraid to make that detachment return and all. F... Read more

Gee whizz. Hurricanes, floods, fires and earthquake. Famine and pestilence follows. Packing nonperishables I bought may make me feel better having donated a "physical" thing, but I'd rather give funds to someone who can increase the pur... Read more

Now My niece lives on one of the small Bahamas islands not a direct hit but certainly in the cone. Last my brother heard they had shuttered the university she works at and were hunkering down. Unfortunately sea level IS sea level and her divis... Read more

My first GS turned 7 yesterday. He's a self-proclaimed expert of oh, so many things! Friday he read me a funny book while jumping up and down, twirling around, hopping on one foot all the while doing what little boys do; hanging onto boy thing... Read more
September already. Time for fall motivation.

I like seeing crisp, blues skies and yellow leaves. I like the smell of piles of leaves; maybe from childhood memories of jumping in them! There is also something therapeutic in clearing out the jungle of my garden as plants wither in the fall. ... Read more

I continue to look for my constant shadow as I walk through the house. No one is biting my pajama bottoms. Scratching at the bathroom door. Sticking a horribly soaked chewed toy in my hand for a tug of war. Leaving surprises near the pee pad ins... Read more
Beautiful things. Great news.

I changed my page to reflect some beautiful things. By following instructions with medications, even getting up every several hours in the night, I dogged a bullet. Today the doctor said "Congratulations, this looks great!" ... Read more
