A year later

I wrote this last year, and never “published” it.  Our son is now home and ran for cover last night when someone set off some sort of sky-rocket fireworks.  It caught him by surprise and he did what he was trained to do.  Sigh.  I’m publishing this – not so much for the Civil War…

Road trip safety

Short and sweet this week, but packed with information! As you may have heard, my daughter-in-law and grandkids were in a car accident on Memorial Day weekend.  Nobody had any major injuries.  The kids seem fine.  So let me say now… “IF YOU HAVE YOUNG CHILDREN WHO BELONG IN A CAR SEAT – USE IT!” …

It’s a matter of the mind

Oh, the itching!  Don’t scratch it, it will make it worse.  I know but… the itching!  Don’t scratch it.  Oh, even just lightly touching it feels so nice. Don’t scratch it.  I know, I know.   Don’t scratch it.  ARGH it itches!   Scratch, scratch, scratch.  Sigh, I shouldn’t have done that.   This is the conversation going…

Sell or donate?

I recently saw a comment, on FaceBook, about someone having bought a piece of history when the Smithsonian was having a sale back in the 1970’s.  I thought, “How terrible that the Smithsonian would sell its historical items.”  I then recalled reading an article about the abundance of items they actually have and how much…

Goodness, I’m exhausted!

So this week’s blog goes out to all those moms of more than one child who are close in age… My daughter-in-law and my two grandchildren (age 4 and almost 3) were in a car accident Memorial Day weekend.  The kids seem fine, but her back is pretty messed up and she’s on some major…

Memorial Day Weekend

 What will you be doing this weekend?   Attending a cookout, going on a picnic, boating, beachin’ it, maybe attending a parade?  Maybe you will be going to Washington, DC. to participate in the festivities (or more aptly put, the honoring of memories) and be lucky enough to see Rolling Thunder pass through.  http://dc.about.com/od/specialevents/a/RollingThunder.htm Have we,…

How ya doin’?

I posted a quick status post about this earlier in the week.  I thought I might elaborate in this week’s BLOG – grin. How do you answer when someone asks you “How are you?” or “How ya doin’?”  Think about it.  It happened to me just this evening.  I asked someone “How are you?” and…

Are you a Race horse or a Work horse?

While mowing the yard (with a self propelled push mower) today, I got to thinking how I felt – grin. Last week I think it took me about two hours to mow the back yard.  When I mentioned this to my husband he was surprised.  I told him that was as fast as the mower…

A little fun this week – grin

Dreams are so weird This is a dream I had last week… I’m getting ready to go on a cruise to meet up with my folks at some tropical location.  It’s boarding time and I realize I have left my purse in the car.  Somehow I am through security without ID – it’s a dream…

Healthy vs. Inexpensive

While traveling recently, I was in a gas station/mini mart (unnamed) when I overheard a conversation between two young (7-10) children and their mother. It went something like this… Kids: Can we get these? Mom: No, I think we’ll go across the street and get some chicken nuggets. Kids: But we want these, and they’re…
