Catching Up!

August 9, 2015

It’s been two years since I’ve visited here and posted. Two years spent in reflection and reconciliation. And lookee here! I’ve come out on the other side relatively unscathed. Mike is doing well physically. Unfortunately his motor planning skills have been dramatically affected and he is in a wheel chair most of the time. To […]

What a fabulous day it is today!  Spring is here and I am reveling in it.  For the first time in a couple years I can actually see Spring and take the time to breathe and enjoy it.  Mike was up unusually early today and we had coffee on the deck with the breeze blowing […]

Did you know that Josh Turner has a new cd out?  Now I don’t know if you particularly like country music as I do or not…but you need to listen to the track called I Was There on the cd Punching Bag.  Phew!  That song never ceases to rock my world.  It fills my soul […]

6-14-80 MS-SP I love you, I will love you always, you are my true love…I DO. Those words come back to me today although I am not sure you recall speaking them, you have continued to remember that you meant them then and you mean them now…and have meant them every day in between, regardless […]

Spring!

Ahhh.  It’s finally here.  The lovely weather makes the rest of the dreariness in life somehow more bearable for me.  Yes, each of the dogs is suffering from some sort of intestinal bug so every morning I wake up to a little mess to clean up.  And yes, it seems Mike is having one of […]

7 Days Til Christmas….

December 18, 2011

So maybe I am finally getting a little Christmas cheer?  I’m contemplating the tree and the potential to raise it up and decorate it today.  This is a job I view as detestable.  Almost as detestable as turd chasing.  I like it well enough when it’s done.  I want it up for a very short […]

For Donna…

It has been said that friends can go long periods of time without speaking and never question the friendship. These friends pick up like they just spoke yesterday, regardless of how long it has been or how far away they live from each other. They don’t hold grudges; they understand that life is busy…and you […]

Today I Have Brains On The Brain

September 5, 2011

I swear, I am so consumed with brain injury my own brain feels like scrambled eggs.  I have had to simplify it for myself.  I can’t fathom all this talk of neurons, neuro-transmitters and the rest of that mad scientist stuff.  I’m a simple girl.  I need things simple.  To that end, after talking to Mike […]

Reading for Kids With Reading Problems

My eldest grand is dyslexic.  We’ve been doing Barton for quite a while but I have to say…it’s been a struggle.  Part of the problem is that Cam is almost 17 (and reading on about a 5th grade level, spelling on a 3rd) and Barton, with its nonsense syllables doesn’t seem meaningful enough to him.  […]
