Time.

Oh, I have so much on my mind. Mainly? Time… Time is wonderful, and yet the lack of it sucks. Example: My kid is some how almost 12. Twelve. So, I sit here and think of how little time we have left with her under our wings. And I CANNOT. Ugh. But, that is our …

Routine

For years now, I have felt ‘off’ … I just assumed it was due to my entire life being dumped upside down, the ensuing chaos, the roller coaster ride of trying to get my hubby back to normal, whatever that is. Living with someone who struggles with mental illness is a challenge. I often question …

Things and stuff

It’s been a low-key day. Mom made delicious corn beef and smoked Gouda sammiches on rye bread for lunch. I cleaned the kitchen, and did some laundry. Finally got Maya’s school pics sorted out and wrote a quick note to those getting a picture. T has been asleep all day. đŸ˜• I am about to …

I hate June

My birthday is June 5. My mom’s dad’s birthday was June 11. He died on June 15. My other grandfather died on my 24th birthday. My mother-in-laws birthday is June 24. My brother-in-law Mark died on June 20th, and my dad died on June 23rd, while we were attending Mark’s funeral. It was the absolute …

A good day

I spent the afternoon out and about with my mom. It was nice. We hit up a local farm for some fresh steaks/burgers/sausage. I’m so thankful to have places around here to get farm-to-table goods. I’d much rather we support our locals than Walmart. We had sandwiches from there for lunch, too. They were delish. …

The Longest Day

The Summer Solstice! I wait all year for this day! I had hoped today would be sunny and hot. Like summer should be. But, nope. đŸ˜” I’m sitting here listening to the birds. They sure have a lot to say. When a car comes by, they hush for a second or two, and then resume. …

Mark

Thirteen years ago, on my birthday, you called to wish me a Happy Birthday, and you promised me a steak dinner when you made the move to Tampa in a few weeks. We were so excited for the move! We looked forward to doing so much with you! Camping and canoeing and lazy days in …

Betty Crocker

It’s been rainy today. Things with T are rocky yet again. I’ve been pretty down, but trying to stay positive. For dinner tonight, I really needed something different. This hit the nail on the head! I get emails from Betty Crocker containing recipes a few times a week. This one was a winner! I took …

Mexican

Mexican food is my favorite. I’d love to meet an old Mexican grandma who would teach me to cook authentic Mexican food. Because we all know that anyone (well, almost anyone) can cook, but put some heart and soul into it and it’ll blow minds! I wanted spice tonight. So I opened a can of …

One year

It was a year ago today that we had to have our sweet Cinder cat put to sleep. We miss her, a lot. She was so sweet, and quite a character. Snafu got so depressed after we lost Cinder. And M had never had a kitten, so off to the shelter we went. We knew …
