That's exactly how I feel. Helena decided to share her flu with Momma and me. (Bless her heart) They are better. I'm not. I am resting (and cleaning) but am not sure what the deal is. Maybe I have a low pain threshold. But the cough is te... Read more

I got a house! 3 bedroom, 1.75 baths, fenced in yard, no garage, but a wood burning fireplace. It does need some work: a clean-up and paint, new cupboards in kitchen...but that is to be expected. It only went on the market yesterday. 4 sho... Read more

5-year-old Helena asks if Santa is real. Of course, he is. God is in charge of everyone. That's a lot of work. So He recruited help in St. Nicholas. St. Nicholas got so busy that he recruited others, especially the parents. I'm real; Santa... Read more

my concentration is on Christmas. I've got Helena mostly done. She's easy - at 5, she tells me what she wants. My girls are a little harder, but not really. Their significant others are a little harder than that, but not really. My dearest ... Read more
