This is a very touchy subject with me, especially when it comes to my son. He is 22 yrs old, and has Autism and ADHD. My mother in law, whom I adore, she’s got a big heart, and she cares so much for her family, however when it comes to the subject of our son. She’s … More Group Homes, a personal decision
For me, I don’t like seeing Christmas decorations in stores until after Thanksgiving. It’s kind of embedded in my mind. As a kid, growing up in the 70’s, I remember stores use to just have the decorations for a particular season DURING THAT SEASON! Now, you start to see Christmas decorations amongst the Halloween decorations. … More Christmas music….before or after Thanksgiving?
Like so many others, I was deeply saddened by the bus tragedy that happened the other day in Chattanooga, Tennessee, yesterday I heard reports that the bus driver had done that… on purpose. I saw some interviews on Good Morning America, that the driver had done some really despicable things leading up to this. In … More Chattanooga bus tragedy
This is what I love about the holidays. Traditions, trying to keep them alive in your family as they were when you were a kid. Sometimes it’s not that easy. Certain things may stay the same, but for the most part, traditions change. When you marry, your spouse of course has his/her different traditions as … More Christmas Traditions
I was so happy yesterday. It snowed. Not a significant amount, just a dusting, but it still snowed. I love to watch it fall. It’s just so serene, so….relaxing. I was really surprised to see it stick however. On Friday, the thermometer reached 80 degrees. I just figured the ground was still too warm. I … More Winter has arrived! (not by the calendar though).
I’ve been keeping a close eye on a winter storm out to our west, It is in the Dakotas and Northern Minnesota today, and causing blizzard warnings there, it is going to sweep it’s way East, but whether it hits where I am in Ohio, is a given. I am in East Central, about an … More Crossing my fingers
I was looking at a weather map this morning, and there’s a huge snowstorm in the Midwest. Duluth, Minnesota is getting pelted with a major snowstorm right now, and I couldn’t be more jealous. It’s a big storm system though, and it stretches far out to the south west, as far as Colorado. So … More White Thanksgiving?
Did anyone catch that super moon? It was big I’ll admit, but the thing that amazed me about it was just how much light it put out. I usually walk my dog at night and we go down this alley that’s very dark, and my dog doesn’t like to go down there, but last night … More Super Moon
Never in my life did I ever think I’d like getting up in the morning. If you had told me that when I hit my 50’s, that I would no longer be a night owl, and enjoy getting up in the morning, I’d have told you that you have a screw loose. I don’t think that … More Morning Ramble
Last night, one of our windows that we’ve had trouble with, was blown out of the frame and broke into a million pieces (well, that’s an exaggeration really) but my poor son, who was sitting at the computer when he happened looked us like….”I DIDN’T DO IT”. He had manage to break it earlier in … More Winter weather woes. Pt. 1
