random things i'm thankful for

In the past few weeks we've been doing a lot of yardwork, including trimming and pruning trees and bushes (including taking out a huge gnarled rosebush). That meant a TON of garbage (approximately 12 garbage bags ugh)....more

Friends.

There are many things I can say about people, but not just people, friends. How can someone be such a good friend & turn to nothing in the next day? I know I've lost alot of 'friends' just by having kids (i know, sad), but those I have made friends with, especially those who have kids, just decided to up & leave. One of them I became good friends with just over these blogs. We related to alot of things and started talking and became real close. All of a sudden, she just deleted me off facebook and wasn't my friend anymore....more

Google Saved My Life

I went through a lot of point and shoot digital cameras before I finally got a Cannon SLR. My oldest one is 6 years old now and my newest one is just now a year....more

More Hairbrained Musings (15)

Another collection of moments and musings.  (Some of you may have noticed this is no longer a weekly post.  You may have also noticed my other posts are less frequent, too-- I didn't want my Musings to overtake my blog, so they will just begin to happen when they happen, but I doubt they will ever go completely away.  It'swaaay too fun to vent!)...more
