Sometimes We Can All Be Proffessionals

Ellie's last dance class at her Dance Center is tonight. We will no doubt be shedding some tears as it will be emotional, but we also know that she is moving on to a new opportunity. She was accepted into an Arts High School for her Junior year. This is so exciting, not only because she was accepted and will be able to pursue her art of dancing, but also because of what this step signifies. Ellie (short for Elizabeth Mary), suffered from severe anxiety from about the age of 3 until just a couple... Sign in to see full entry.

Finally the papers for Dad's estate are back from the court and should be coming in the mail this week. I am wanting so much to move forward with everything and get it all wrapped up. It's emotionally exhausting. It will be hard letting the house go but my siblings and I have decided that that will be the best thing …for all of us. Hopefully we will sell next spring. There's a lot to do in the mean time. It's hard to believe that this Friday, dad will have been gone 2 months already. I remember... Sign in to see full entry.

Yard Work

A very normal week. Long overdue yard work is finally getting attended to. We are actually digging up most of the front, and planting flowers under the trees, putting down mulch. The dropping pines kill the grass below the trees……we just moved in last spring and didn't get around to the yard until now. A dear older lady from the church next door loves gardening and is helping us. My daughter is picking up wonderful tips from her and is building a relationship. A win win for all.

A Very Nice Saturday

The sun is out here on this beautiful Saturday morning and for the first time in a long time, I have the weekend off work. Laying in bed still……dog snoozing at my side, a cozy cup of coffee on the nightstand. I feel relaxed for a change knowing Dad is no longer suffering. This is the most peaceful I've felt since his passing on May 21st. Its nice to lay here reading all of your beautiful posts. It was a good decision coming back to blogit. What ever made me leave before? My daughter, son and I... Sign in to see full entry.

A little time before leaving work to just sit in the chapel and have some time for stillness. My thoughts run rampant. I'm so glad to be off for the weekend and am looking forward to sleeping all day! My body has been so tired these last few days and I hope I'm not catching something. Hoping the tickle in my throat is just allergies or a fluke. The weather is hot! The dog probably won't be up for much walking this weekend but I might try him down at the magnificent mile. Maybe being near the... Sign in to see full entry.

I've been spending a lot of time on a site called "Find A Grave", researching family history, posting comments and pictures and just getting a bit lost in the beauty of lives past. I signed myself and my daughter up as photo volunteers, and we are going to go out Saturday afternoon to hunt for about 100 photo grave requests that people have put in for loved ones buried in cemeteries close by us. I'm looking forward to it. And wondering where it might lead us. Sign in to see full entry.

Thursdays Happenings

Yesterday was busy, but good. I picked Rachel up for her first homeopathy appointment and although it was a bit of a drive, it was nice to spend time with her. She and Pete have been trying for a baby for 3 years and this was a great first step. Dad left some money and I know he would be so happy to know it is being used this way. While Rachel was in the appointment, I sat for 2 hours in the car under a shade tree, working on my life story. And reading the life story of my aunts and grandmother,... Sign in to see full entry.

This and That

A good day yesterday. After sleeping when I got home from work, I got up around 3 p.m. Did some cleaning around the house, threw in some laundry, made coffee and settled down in Sam's room to watch the music video he and Sarah have been working on…Hunter Hayes " You Light Me Up". Beautiful, as Sarah changed it to an acoustic version. Sam's video skills are becoming more creative the longer he practices and Sarah is getting more comfortable in front of the camera. Then I sat with the dog for a... Sign in to see full entry.

The Master Plan

Today is Tuesday. The days roll on. The world cares not that Dad died over a month ago, as did Butch. And little Austin not even a week ago. Life just continues to move forward and it is the most baffling thing. I can contemplate it to no end …and yet it gets me nowhere. Is it God who holds all in His hands? Is it a universal power? Is it our higher selves? Or ( and this is the most empty of thoughts ) is it no one? Nothing? I ache to know the answer as man has ached for centuries. I ache for... Sign in to see full entry.

Meal Planning ..,, My Newest Endeavor

I'm trying to take a step back to see where I can tweak things for the better in my life. Working night shift makes me want to sleep all day.....longer then a normal 7 hours. So I feel like I miss out on a lot and if I'd just get more organized, I might be able to get a handle on things. I've started with meal planning. I'm so tired of just winging it when it comes to meals. My daughter will cook a couple times a week, and we always have fresh fruit and vegetables around, but I feel like we need...
