Waiting Well

We've been in a bit of a holding pattern. Our youngest is having open heart surgery soon and in an effort to keep her healthy we are in isolation. No play dates, trips to the park or Chick Fil A (her fave place ever). She wears a mask unless she's sleeping or eating and besides... Continue Reading →


I care about things that don’t matter

Not sure why this is the case, I think in some ways, I've been like this my whole life. Maybe it was my raising. I witnessed my parents care more about the people who drifted in and then out of their lives more than the ones who would be there till they died. Maybe that... Continue Reading →

No Title for this Post

I can't think of a title for this post and since my mind is all over a little bit today, that might be why. I text an old friend who used to live in NC with us to see how they have been. They've been in the throes of some pretty complicated stuff and I... Continue Reading →

The Father I Had

He was a Brit, complete with bad teeth and all. I think he suffered with, at the very least, little man's syndrome, but in reality the list was endless. He was completely private, in fact to this day, I know very little about the man who raised me. He had the nastiest temper that could... Continue Reading →

Time Heals?

They say time heals. Who says time heals? I'm not so sure they were fully human if that is what they truly thought. For example, 16 years later I still have moments of ache for missing my mom. She would have been only 69 this year. 69! That is robbery, and I know so many... Continue Reading →

6 Months

6 months in sunny CA and I would like to say forever to go except...have you met me? I move...more than normal people. Just a few thoughts since being on CA soil for 6 months. My most favorite place so far is Carmel-by-the-Sea. There is literally nothing better than sitting there with the ocean in... Continue Reading →

Burn the Ships

Shortly after we moved to CA my hubs introduced me to the brand new song/album by For King & Country, called Joy. I loved it so much I downloaded the whole album not long after but listened repeatedly to the song Joy. However, not too much later their song Burn the Ships caught my attention...

Little J’s Gotcha Day!

Just 10 days ago our family celebrated our littlest J being with us for a year. It has been a whirlwind of a year to say the least and I am sure that if she could communicate well enough, she would wholeheartedly agree. When we boarded a plane in January, 2018 I was already in... Continue Reading →

What is your Problem?

"Can't we all just get along?" "We can agree to disagree!" "Well, that is YOUR opinion and you're entitled to it..." These common sayings and feelings that we all share whenever we get together and topics of politics, religion and the like come up are the easiest way of saying "I'm Done!" No one, and I mean,...
