"they paved paradise and put up a parking lot"...or a mudroom

Dogs just LOVE the kitty litter box. It is like a forbidden paradise to them. As goes a typical day for a mom, I was in the middle of cooking dinner, making a tray of goodies for my husband's work, and attempting to convince my kids that they really did want to take a shower. I stood in the kitchen... Sign in to see full entry.

How much is that doggie in the window?

"That pup cost me a whole months pay." That's how much. At least according to Grandpa. He is referring to Garfunkel, our mini schnauzer. Mind you this puppy was born right here in my home, I own both the mother and the father and Grandpa was right here the day he was born. Grandpa has come up with... Sign in to see full entry.

Mormons will be eaten by zombies

***First of all I have no issue with Mormons just so we are all on the same page. I grew up RLDS and my Great Grandparents were LDS. They are all okay in my book.*** God bless the holiday season...said no dementia caregiver EVER. UPS is at the door every day. If it's not them it's the mail lady, or... Sign in to see full entry.

House rules

My Grandpa was the pastor for the church that I grew up in. He taught me that we should love all of God's children. He showed me what compassion meant, and unconditional love. These are lessons that have stuck with me throughout my life. In his new state of mind, Grandpa has become very jugmental... Sign in to see full entry.

"You can't live your life by lyrics" -SLC Punk

I have to disagree with this quote from one of my all time favorite movies. Music is what makes the world go 'round. It is the heartbeat of the universe. Different things trigger different memories. The taste of mint chocolate chip ANYTHING automatically takes me back to the summer after sixth... Sign in to see full entry.

I'll sleep when I am dead

I love sleep. Sleep is good. Sleep is amazing. As a mother of four boys, I get very little of it, and now with Grandpa I get even less. He goes to bed around 6:00pm. He will come out of the room around 6:15pm in his pajamas and tell everyone goodnight. He goes back in the room and 15 minutes later... Sign in to see full entry.

touche grandpa

My Grandpa once told me that I shouldn't do anything that I would be embarrassed by if God were to walk in the room. A few days ago Grandpa stood in front of the mirror for something like 20 minutes combing his hair. Me: "Grandpa, wouldn't you be embarrassed if God stopped by and saw you primping...
