I have put off going to see the doc regarding my shoulder issue for just a bit. Like...since...June. At least it was June 2008.So I saw the orthopaedic surgeon today. I really liked him. I think he's going to be my new bff.He is younger than I am and that was okay, probably even better [...]

Volleyball vs. Football
There are many reasons I prefer volleyball over football as a spectator sport. Volleyball is inside...Football is not...Volleyball players are sweet and happy and giggly.Football players just want to hurt someone (direct quote from my football player).Volleyball players like to chat and compare hair styles.Football players just want to hurt someone.Volleyball is clean...Football...not so much.You [...]
Yay! I have the house all to myself…
It's cold and rainy and yucky out. The boys have gone to a high school football game. The Beast and The Older Boyfriend have gone to dinner and a movie. And me...I'm giddy with happiness...The House Is All Mine.I've had Travis cranking on my iPod. I felt the need for a bit of Praise and [...]
That is my favorite word.I'll eat better tomorrow.I'll walk for sure tomorrow.I'll apologize to him tomorrow.I'll write that note to her tomorrow.I'll get the office organized tomorrow.Recently, God has been impressing on me to do things today.So today I took the day off from work. My house was a pit, so I gave it a [...]
She hates this picture…
Which is why I grabbed it and ran to the computer to plaster it all over the Internet.Hey...she shouldn't set me up with these things.Her varsity team is having a successful season so far. The Beast is playing, well, like a beast. The team has come together and the new (former JV) coach is loved [...]

I have been married for 25 years today. A quarter of a century. The big 2-5. Three years longer than I lived unmarried.I wish I could say that we were one of those couples that always did it right... communicated... never fought...sailed through life. How boring would that be? And so not true.We have definitely [...]
The Day After the Storm.
I spent most of the day in bed yesterday...in my jammies...reading. It was heavenly and exactly what I needed. People, for the most part, left me alone. Tropical Storm Hanna blew all around us. The wind and rain was comforting and calming yesterday for some reason. This morning it is sunny, cool and there is [...]
Back to school and loving it.
Let me clarify: the darlings are back to school and I'm the one loving it. Them...not so much. Here they are at 6:30 the first morning of school (which was Tuesday for us):They both had homework on their first day. They both had good and not so good things to say about their classes. I [...]
It is the most incredibly beautiful day here in Northern Virginia. The air has that Fall coolness that makes life worth living. Well, at least for me. I LOVE Fall and it will soon be here.My heart and prayers, however, are focused well South on the Gulf Coast. I was horrified to see that people [...]
