Snow day.

I was half asleep this morning when I heard John get up and get ready for work. I could hear the wind and snow hitting the window next to the bed. I am super glad that I work from home. After 21 years, I NEVER take my job for granted. Temperatures are going to continue [...]

RENT Live!

I often mention how important music is to me. Well, John, Joe and Sadie have always had the same love for song. When John traveled to New York city in 1997 he saw a play “Rent”. When he returned with the soundtrack we all became fans. We played it in the house, car, and the [...]

It’s the weekend!

I am so happy that today is Friday. I am happy that John will be home for the weekend. I am feeling about 90 percent back to myself. I was down with bronchitis. It was rough. I don’t have any idea what we will be doing this weekend, but I want to get out in [...]

The calm.

The sun is shining like it is the 4th of July.  Although the temperature is 5 outside, the heat from the sun shining through the large windows is making my family room toasty and warm. I finally feel like I am turning a corner with my health. I am starting to feel like myself again. [...]

I am sick on the couch again today. Bronchitis. I have no energy and am very tired. I am anxious to get moving on the things I want to start in 2019. Patience. I am learning the lesson of being still while I heal.

A new year.

It is hard to believe that it is mid January already. It was nice to leave Pittsburgh just after the new year. My sister and I enjoyed a week together in Punta Cana. The weather while we were away was wonderful. Today I am back in Pittsburgh and on the couch with a cough and [...]

Punta Cana.

It is early, or late, by some standards. My sister and I are heading to the airport soon. We are traveling to Punta Cana today. We will spend the next week with our feet in the sand and our faces in the sun. I have never been to Punta Cana. I am looking forward to [...]

A new year.

Well, it is a new year. Christmas is over and is packed away again in the attic. This year has the potential to be the best year yet. We can’t always change our situations but we can change how we react to them. It is said that we are what we think. I am thinking [...]
