I’ve Arrived.

Driving to the airport yesterday morning, was a bit unnerving.  The wind was blowing so hard that it was raining sideways.  Branches, and even a tree, were down on the road.  I was not thrilled.  A man at the gate warned that we may be in for a rough ride. I took a deep breath [...]

I’m off.

Well, I am going to the airport this morning.  Flying alone.  Not my favorite thing.  I’m going to Florida.  Back to Hutchinson Island.  Going to spend the next 15 days with my mama.  She was on a cruise last week.  The only souvenir she got was pneumonia.  Ugh.  Fortunately, she has a doctor in Florida [...]


It was surreal to watch.  This was a man who has fought with everything he could to maintain this lie through vicious attacks, threats and lawsuits.  But, last week,  Lance Armstrong came clean.  Almost as if he just decided to flip a switch from somewhere deep inside. Calling himself an arrogant bully, Lance Armstrong had [...]


I woke at 2:22 this morning.  Sleep.  Ugh.  I am not getting enough of it.  I am not happy about that.  I don’t remember the last time I got a full eight hours of sleep. After my hysterectomy in 1995, I was catapulted into menopause.  I don’t think I slept for a year.  At that time I [...]

Words around you.

This morning, I sat down at the desk in my kitchen.  What should I write about?  Most days I write my blog while sitting on the couch with my laptop, on my lap.  I wasn’t sure what to write about today.  I couldn’t find the words.  As I sat at my desk, I noticed something. [...]

Purple, the angels favorite color.

I was in TJ Maxx on Thursday.  I needed to buy another suitcase.  I have a super large suitcase.  It is so big I could stuff a small child in it.  I also have a carry on suitcase.  I needed to buy one that was a size somewhere in between. I am going to Florida [...]

March for Life.

Today is the March for Life in Washington DC.  The March for Life always makes me think of Joe and Sarah’s birthmothers. I am so thankful to these women.  They chose life for their children, when society offered other options.  They made the couragious and loving decision to give birth to their children.  These two women [...]

The Silver Lining.

John and I recently saw the movie The Silver Linings Playbook.  I know the movie and a few of the actors have been nominated for acadamy awards. “I don’t want to stay in the bad place, where no one believes in silver linings or love or happy endings”, The Silver Linings Playbook   I love [...]

Thank YOU from the Joseph Kimutis Memorial Fund!

The totals are in!  The spaghetti dinner and donation totals, for the Joseph Kimutis Memorial Fund, are $7,300!  AND, checks and wonderful, kind notes are still a nice surprise in our mailbox! We are so overjoyed with everyones generosity!  The morning of the spaghetti dinner there was six inches of snow on the ground.  That [...]

A bit chilly.

It is still dark outside.  I did not sleep well last night.  The solar activity has been keeping a lot of people awake lately.  It is freezing.  It is so still, no wind.  Very uncharacteristic for us.  Living high on this hill, it is nearly always windy.  The school delays are scrolling across the bottom [...]
