Marsha, Marsha, Marsha

Guess what I’m doing! Go ahead. Guess. If you said “laundry” you are correct. That Sherry Lewis classic, “this is the song that never ends, it just goes on and on my friends,” is playing through my head. Because laundry is the chore that never ends. NEVER! I need an Alice. You know, an older,…

Where's The Sand??

I’d like to bury my head now, please. I read this yesterday: Early ovarian surgery linked to dementia. Further research is still needed, but this is kind of scary. The study suggests the sudden drop in estrogen for premenopausal women who have their ovaries removed can lead to dementia and that taking hormone supplements (estrogen)…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TERRI!!

My sister’s birthday is today. Correct me if I’m wrong, Terri, but by your math are you 37? I never fully grasped your aging method, but I know I like it. Anyway, she and her husband live in Fort Worth as does her oldest son (Ben) and his family. Her two younger sons (Jarred and…

The Post That's Not A Post

There are oodles of things going through my head to blog about, but the majority of them are whiney. And I don’t feel like doing whiney today. I’ll save that for another day. Though if I did whine today I could start something new – Whiney Wednesdays. What do you think?? I’ve been watching HGTV…

Can You Hear the Hallelulia Chorus??

No?? It’s very loud where I’m sitting and the glare from the host of angels singing is nearly blinding. The kids went back to school today. Taylor was up and finished in the shower before either Todd or I woke up. I went to wake Katie at 6:30 expecting much wailing and gnashing of teeth,…

BLOGIVERSARY A year ago today I published my first post. I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for 365 days. Tara Marie and Amanda inspired me to start it and my purpose was mainly to keep family and friends who are scattered across the country updated on our happenings here in Pennsylvania. It’s turned into…

Still Under Construction

I’ve been trying to think of a delicate way to say this, but I’m not having much luck. So I’m just going to say it. I drove into Philadelphia this afternoon for nipples. Yep. You read that right. I saw my plastic surgeon and he somehow fashioned nipples for me. It was a very strange…

Apple Core!! Baltimore!! Who's Your Friend??

After Todd’s dentist appointment Friday morning we left for Baltimore. Before we’d gotten too far I complained that the spring mechanism in the little storage bin on the dashboard was stuck. Todd said, “you mean this?”, as he opened and closed the compartment repeatedly. Y’all do know why they don’t send donkeys to school, don’t…

Still Driving By

We’re back from Baltimore. What a fun place that is!! We’re going to have to go back when we have more time. I’ll post pictures later. Thank you for the prayers. Dad’s tests went well. What we know at this moment is that he has a bleeding ulcer and a large colon polyp. The doctor…
