Me Weekend ~ Me Time

I have spent this entire weekend alone doing whatever I wanted to do whenever I wanted to do it. I even took an evening to do nothing at all but veg out, watch every episode of Season 5 of Grace & Frankie on Netflix and drink Dark Horse Rosé wine. I have been afforded all... Continue Reading →

Spiritual & Mental Reset

If Facebook showed me just how many times I pull up their website on Safari, I would be even more aggravated with myself than the crap that flows through my newsfeed as I mindlessly scroll down rolling my eyes ~ quite often I may add ~ at all of the crap that people post and... Continue Reading →

Pitching Mood

As much as I hate to admit it - I am a hoarder of things like all of M's papers. I have totes labeled Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade.... you get the picture. Middle school took a hit in the paper department since very little - if any - papers were brought... Continue Reading →

Lessons of 2018

Lessons of 2018 ~ As I reflect on 2018, I must admit it has been a blur. So many people I have spoken with have the same sentiment. Where has the year gone..... I can tell you - it has gone F A S T. Last year, I made a post called Lessons of 2017.... Continue Reading →

Uncomfortable Conversation

Last week, I took Miss M to the DMV to update her State ID as she changed her last name a year ago this month (July) to incorporate my maiden name, and to have the same name as me and to have her Pappy's last name as well. Yes, we are those ladies who hyphenate.... Continue Reading →

When People Disappoint

For myself, when decisions have been made that were out of my control; I chose to stand up, brush myself off and move... Continue Reading →

Take Time to Slow Down

Rush here. Rush there. Do this. Do that. Thinking of that while I'm doing this. Story of my life. It really hit me yesterday as GW and I went to Columbus for a couple of nights to celebrate wedding weekend with family and friends. We went to one of our favorite spots, Cooper's Hawk Winery,...

Father’s Day 2.0

I sat down to write about my second Father's Day "without" my Dad when it began to thunder. I am still smiling. Why, you ask? Because if you read my tribute words that I spoke at his service, you know that every time it thunders we say it is THE Paul Williams building mansion sites... Continue Reading →

Ohio Chautauqua ~ Erma Bombeck

Last night, my family and I attended Ohio Chautauqua to watch the live performance of Susan Marie Frontczak as she portrayed Erma Bombeck. Before I go any further, let me explain what Ohio Chautauqua does. It is a community event that comes to town under a big red and white tent offering living history performances...

15 Minute Writing Prompt Challenge

I have sat here for 2 hours thinking, contemplating, wondering, worrying and searching to do the 15 Minute Writing Prompt Challenge set upon fellow writers in a Facebook group in which we belong. Hell even Siri didn't want to cooperate by setting a timer for 15 minutes. I am positive I am not doing it the... Continue Reading →

394

Thirteen months today to be exact. I can't believe that a month has flown by since the marking of the year that my Dad went home. So many times I have wanted to sit down and write about that day. The love and support from friends who are more than friends ~ they are family... Continue Reading →

363

363 ~ that is the number of days that have seem to have flown by and have crawled all at the same time. 363 ~ that is the number of days I have moved forward with one foot in front of the other and forged on with some days being better than others. Very few... Continue Reading →

Lessons of 2017

Lessons of 2017 ~ What have I learned? What will I take into 2018 with me? What will I leave behind in 2017? I have learned that God is good all of the time and that God's Grace is sufficient. I have learned that if I stop and listen to all the things around me... Continue Reading →

Our First 365 Days

A wise man told me back in May that this is a year of firsts for our family. My first birthday, first Father's Day, first 4th of July, on and on without my Dad. I explained to him that we made every day special not just holidays while I appreciated what he was sharing with... Continue Reading →

Where do people get off?

I just spent the last hour and 48 minutes on the phone with one of my closest and dearest friends talking about where do people get off thinking they can basically say anything and do anything to someone. Is it the social media era where people hide behind keyboards, monitors and hand held devices where... Continue Reading →

True North

GW took me away for the weekend at the beginning of the month to celebrate my birthday and he invited some of our nearest and dearest friends to join us. We spent an entire day and evening together. At one point I realized that my cell phone hadn't needed to be on a charger at... Continue Reading →

One Less Place Setting

A month ago... as I sit here and hit backspace several times... not wanting to type the words... let alone admit the words.... we have one less at our table for family dinners. My hero, my first love, the one I hold all others up to, my everything, my Daddy went home. And because I... Continue Reading →

Revelation

So this evening, I had a revelation. I realized that I don't post a lot of what I'm thinking, doing or experiencing because my photos aren't what some would call "professional".  So my thought is, WHO CARES! I'm me. I like what I like and I like this time in my life and if I... Continue Reading →
