Some Things Are Too Hard
Thursday, September 11, 2014      9 comments

I used to think the hardest thing to do was to say goodby to Sarah and Sherry. Well, at the time, it was. I learned to stay busy the first week we were apart. Then came Helena. I was a basket case when she left at 3 weeks to come to Nova... Read more

My daughter Sherry and her boyfriend Daryl went out last night. It was the first time they've done that in over a year. Sherry was the typical new mom: debating whether or not she should go. Helena and I had a grand time. We made some... Read more

I haven't seen my daughter and granddaughter since July 16. I haven't been able to get in many steps each day since I got here Wednesday. We had good intentions of taking the baby for a walk every day. But if you know anything about babies, y... Read more

Is it really September? Where did June, July and August go? What happened to my list of things to do in the summer? Okay...my view of the world right now is a bit skewed. Not feeling well all weekend has done me in. It's September! T... Read more

Monday, September 01, 2014      5 comments

It was a busy, stressful week last week. Between trying to get ready to leave, making sure Mom was set for when I'd be gone, babysitting, the accident and the locking myself out incident, it's no wonder I don't feel good. My throat is feeling ... Read more
Okay...I'm Stopped and Hoping

Granted, I know that last week was a hectic, off week for me. But I still wasn't expecting to feel so yucky when I went to bed last night and got up this morning. I went to a clinic close by since my doctor is out of town. I was told that it ... Read more

Everybody has those days on occasion where a day doesn't end up at all like they wanted. Yesterday was one of those days. I tried to get a handle on my mound of paperwork. I swear it grew as I sat at the table. Mom's basement flood... Read more

I'm starting to really get excited about going to Nova Scotia to see Sherry and Helena. I guess that before this, it just seemed like too far away. So, my spirits are lifting. My lists are being made. My errands must be started. As it's a ... Read more
