Been Meaning Too…

I have been meaning to do so much in my life, but never get around to it.  Now life has caught up to me.  I am in my sixth decade now.  I have three grown children and two small grandchildren.  I have not adjusted to being almost old yet. The biggest disappointment in my life … Continue reading

Go Figure!

My husband, my daughter and I were watching the super bowl game this evening with iOS from the iPad on a huge screen. The screen went out somewhere in the third quarter. I mean blank screen! Nothing- no sound. No picture! We sat there thinking. With our luck, this would be the greatest game in … Continue reading

Reflections of life later

I thought I was something. I thought I was suppose to be someone. I thought life was going to be anything but this.  What my daughter did to me opened up my world to what reality is. I was better off just ignoring it I thought. Can’t do that any longer.  My aim  is to … Continue reading

Lazy Days of Summer-going, going, gone

In May, I had so many expectations of what my summer would be like.  I was going to have a bigger garden front and back.  I was going to finish my book. I was going to lose a whole lot of weight. I was gonna, I was gonna, I did not do.  My garden was … Continue reading

Birthday Wishes

Today is my birthday. Just another day really. I always try to use this day to think about me-my life. Am I living it to the best of my ability? This birthday is different. Different in how I see the day and myself. So much has occurred to me this year, that it has changed … Continue reading

Finding Myself

Okay, I’ve discovered that I have no life without my kids who are all grown. I have no real job because no one wants to hire a fifty something, Master degree teacher with over twenty years experience. I have no where I have to go. I have very little money of my own from my … Continue reading
