Memorial Day

Oh yeah a long weekend coming up. With Peanut's school coming to an end this is going to be a really fun weekend. She has a playdate tomorrow here. She's so excited! She'll get to show off her messy room and all of her stuff and play video games and hopefully pull out some of her toys that have been sitting collecting dust. Peanut's been coming out of her shell nicely. It's fun to see her become the social butterfly she once was as a toddler again. Now half the time she's on the phone with friends and I have to ask to use it. Sunday will be church, then a meal out to celebrate my aunt's … [Read more...]

I Heart You

Sad is all I can say. American Idol was awful, putrid, one of the worst shows on tv tonite. I actually fell asleep right before Blake started singing with Doug E. Fresh (who, why?). I woke up right at the end of the song tho. The Golden Idol Awards were the most lame, ridiculous waste of time moments in tv history. Bette Midler - what happened to her? My gosh she sounded worse than Sanjaya, why was she waving her arms like a bird? Poor old Tony Bennet looked like a zombie. The girls with Gladys Night (she still can sing) looked like they had white paper bags on them. Poor Rubin Studdard in … [Read more...]

Shhhhhh

Today was Peanut's Award Ceremony for Second Grade. I for once was actually early so I got a good seat to take photos. I sat next to her friend's mom who is very strict with her children, a good role model. She is also overweight and not one to take to other people saying anything rude. She can be quite scary if you cross her. Behind us was a very young mom with two teenage girls. As each teacher announced the children's names, their award (if they received one) and gave them their promotion certificate, most of the families and friends politely applauded for each child. I felt badly for … [Read more...]

Starting Over Again

Today starts a new week - as if you didn't know. But for someone with so many chronic illnesses I sometimes forget them, today is a fresh start. This past week hasn't been so good for me. I've had a lot of issues with fatigue, overly dry eyes and pain. At church today people even commented that I didn't look myself. That's very unusual for me. It's been ages since I've heard that. So I'm going to bed early tonight. Tomorrow I'll get back to my list in my planner. That makes my life feel a bit more organized plus I can prioritize what's really important. If I can't get to the fluff then it's … [Read more...]

Road Trip and My Acceptance

Since Lady Ali is single I'm now allowed to be in her life more. That's fine with me! It's been tough with her being only 90 miles away and only seeing her once every few months. Today Peanut, Mom and I met her for lunch, spent a few hours together and laughed like the whacky people we are. It's nice to see your adult child.....so adult. She's just so self-assured, fun, responsible and well grown up. It's still tough to think about. I really need to accept this fact. I do most of the time (well some of the time) but when I spend time with her again, it all comes back. Life in rewind. … [Read more...]
