I Don’t Know

I had another post in mind to write today and it was even a little bit funny. And then a bit of real life entered my little world and this post is in response to that reality. I don’t know. I don’t know why bad things happen to good people. I don’t know why some…

Ugh.

Or maybe Yuck. One word to describe the way I feel physically and emotionally. I’m still tired and coughing.  It doesn’t help that the weather is changing every hour.

Too much T.V. and morphine (my sister, not me).  I’m thinking about getting one of those little whiteboards like they use in…

Focus

It’s been long week. Youngest daughter is ready for school on Monday.  Uniforms are bought, books are all here, the lunch bag is ready to be packed, and the lunch food is all bought.  We have met the teachers and seen the classroom.  She is more excited than scared now. Son has started packing for…
