A Little Musical Nostalgia

This is all Kristie’s fault. I’ve been playing over at YouTube and came across this little gem. And this is pre-MTV – 1975, to be exact. So what memories does this bring back for you?

Checkups and January Reading

I saw the plastic surgeon today for a routine post-surgical checkup. Everything is as it should be and I was released to do whatever I feel like. So I think next week I’m going to start swimming. The thought of gliding through the water without a care as to where my boob will end up…

Lesson Learned

Now that it’s truly winter here we’re all suffering from the dry air itch. DH bought a bottle of Gold Bond Medicated lotion and he thinks it works pretty good. Todd would advise not to rub it in too high on the leg as it has a tendency to spread somewhat, causing certain, more tender…

Poor Ol' Bessie's On Her Last Leg…

… or tire, as the case may be. We have a ’98 Dodge Grand Caravan (Bessie). She’s been a great car, even though we’ve had to rebuild the transmission twice. She has over 120,000 miles on her and, while she’s still getting us where we need to go, little things keep going wrong. So we’re…

Let's Have Some Church

Seeing as how it’s Sunday and seeing as how I can’t catch any fleeting thoughts long enough to post something coherent, I thought I’d post a little MercyMe. Taylor and I saw them on a Wednesday night last April in a small and intimate venue (our church) and it was a life-altering experience. On our…

Flying With Small Children

I’m sure by now everyone has heard about the family with the three-year-old daughter who was kicked off their flight because the child was throwing a tantrum. According to an email survey at Good Morning America, my opinion is in the distinct minority. The overwhelming majority was on the side of the airline. I do…

WOO HOO!!!

My mom had her last radiation treatment yesterday!! She still has to have Herceptin treatments every three weeks and we’re not sure how long that’s going to last. But she’s finished chemo, she’s finished radiation and her hair is starting to grow back. What could be better??

THIS Is Where I Grew Up

This is Redondo Beach with Torrance Beach and then Palos Verdes in the background. If it was clear enough or the angle was a little different you’d be able to see a faint outline of Catalina Island just past the peninsula. It looks to me that the truck is probably at about Avenue C (wouldn’t…

It's the Little Things

I’m feeling so content right now. This is why: 1. I’m wearing very comfy pink thermal jammies with sage green stars, sage green fuzzy socks, pink slippers and a pink robe (the whole matching thing is making me happy); 2. I’m reading Darkfever (I’m sucked in and will probably have to finish it before can…
