Sort of a Role Reversal

Sort of a Role Reversal

I am a daughter. My parents are 81 and 83, and for the most part, I am blessed their health is fairly good. My father has Parkinson’s and macular degeneration. He has learned to accept most of his limitations, but he is often frustrated at not being able to do… Read more »

Contemplating

I’ve been discussing returning to the work force. Those that knew me from 22-40 would laugh that I even left it. I loved working, making my own money, contribuiting to our family, all of that. I made a decent income, and worked hard, but 7 years ago my family needed… Read more »

September

Do you know the Earth Wind and Fire song? It’s a great one! I think I recall it most from the fall of 1978 when I was a freshman in college, a guy I’d met, a sort of love interest, but mostly a friend had an old convertible, and he… Read more »

School

My 3 children went back to school today, sort of for the second time. We had day 1 and then we had Tropical Storm Fay, and they missed 4 days…….what a mess! My oldest twin daughters have started their sophomore year of high school, when I say it out loud… Read more »

all over the place

As I sit here and ponder what to write about, and oddly enough I want to write something, my head is spinning with many things.1. I’d like to bake cookies or muffins because I have the stuff and I want something sweet.2. I’m hoping soccer practice is cancelled due to… Read more »

Where has the time gone?

Our summer(or my children’s summer vacation) is flying by. We hit the half way point this week, and it seems unreal to me. Where have the past 5 weeks gone? A better question might be……what have we done? We’ve been away 3 weekends for softball tournaments. We’ve been to the… Read more »

Holiday weekend

Tomorrow is the 4th of July, not a huge holiday in my book, but it is a 3 days weekend for my husband and my family will get more time together. Growing up I have memories of cookouts and campouts and fireworks and my only favorite sparklers. I like watching… Read more »
