It’s Morning!

Day By Day Anyone remember the movie Godspell, or am I just dating myself? Grin. There was a song titled Day By Day. It crossed my mind when I was titling this weeks blog. So, a friend/co-worker of some friends of mine passed away last night. They were in a car accident a week ago…

Make it Personal

As I put a Valentine’s Day card in the mail to my grandchildren (who live one state up from us) I recalled that my neighbor in Virginia sends her grandson a card every week, and has since he was born.  They live four states away from each other.  I wondered how many people still send…

It’s a new month

 One down, eleven to go How’s your January been? Has it been good?  Have you been productive?  Are you happy?  Maybe it hasn’t been so great and you’re not happy.  You know, (yes you DO know – it may not have occurred to you, but you know) that you have the option to change the…

A little dusting

Money 101

Okay, I may have blogged on this before, but I think it bears repeating.  Actually, I recently blogged on how to NOT spend a bunch of money on Christmas gifts.  But let’s talk about credit cards…   Credit cards may be good for establishing credit, or getting rewards – like money back, so I suppose…

Last Friday of 2011

I don’t know about you, but my family has had a crazy year! The end of December 2010 saw our youngest son deployed to Afghanistan.  He bounced around from various COP’s (Combat Operation Posts) and didn’t settle down into a mailable address until February 2011.  We were then able to send him mail – and…

Peace to you & yours

Peace on Earth Aside from being the anthem for any Miss (fill in the blank) contestant, it is most often at Christmas time when we really think about peace on earth.  Of course, any military family thinks about this concept constantly, as our soldiers go off to war. My absolute favorite Christmas show is “A…

Inside my brain

Friday kinda snuck up on me & I will admit, I’m not properly prepared with a BLOG topic.  However, I don’t want to break routine, (I missed last week as it was, with the move from Virginia to North Carolina).  I recall once (and only once – teehee), Jim asked me what I was thinking…
