The Owl Morning-Addendum Added

This morning I took an owl to the Animal Shelter. When I dropped him off, they told me they didn’t do anything for them but waited for someone to pick them up. At 3-4 o’clock this afternoon! This was at 9:00 a.m. this morning. When I called the Wildcare people to tell them I’d dropped [...] ...more

Makeup I’ve been loving this summer!

It seems like I change my make up frequently. Do other people do that? I mean I don’t necessarily fall out of love with a particular product, or anything, I just kind of move on to something else without thinking about it much. Some of it is the seasons. I tend to wear different makeup [...] ...more

This is what I did this week

That beautiful, straight smile is what $1,901, and 8 months worth of trips to the orthodontist, buys you these days. Three of those trips were this week; one on Tuesday and two on Wednesday. We are now the proud owners of a semi-permanent retainer and a wire across the back of his front four teeth [...] ...more

Look what I did this weekend!

This was my storage cabinet before. I couldn’t get the door closed. When I opened the door stuff fell out on my head. I could never find lids for the containers I wanted to use. This is my storage cabinet after: I moved a few things. I got rid of a bunch of things. I [...] ...more

Summer’s Ending

Another summer is coming to a close.  The BoyChild starts school tomorrow which to me always symbolizes the end of summer. We didn’t really do much this summer. I hired a girl I knew from Church to help with the BoyChild this summer.  She was fabulous!  I didn’t quite know what to call her.  He’s [...] ...more

Oldest Person In The Room

The other day I was at a deposition. I was the oldest person in the room; by about 30 years.  The witness, who was born the year AFTER I graduated from high school was the second oldest person in the room. It was a little sobering ....more

Updating the New Normal

The last few weeks have been…busy.  That’s the only real word to describe it.  Busy. For Spring Break, the BoyChild and I went to Grapevine, Texas to visit LegoLand.  We had a good time, but I was a little disappointed.  I thought it was an all day, Six Flags, sort of place.  Instead it an [...] ...more

I love me some good customer service!

Last weekend my friend and I ran in the Run Lucky 5k race. We didn’t make great time, but we did o.k. That’s us near the finish line. While we were there, the BoyChild and I went into the running store. I’d been there before buying shoes and stuff, but that day I was on [...] ...more

Picture This

I’ve been following Anna’s voyage as she and her family navigate the roughwaters following the death of her son. In a way it reminds me of my own situation with my GirlChild though she is just unavailable to me due to her various problems. Anna has all these great pictures of her and her family.  [...] ...more
