My Favorite Holiday I don’t know that I really have a ‘favorite‘ holiday. I just love all the holidays that give me a chance to see ALL ELEVEN of my grandkids together. I guess that means, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. Thanksgiving is wonderful because it gives me a chance to see all of my kids […]

Something I Love About Myself Wow. Nothing like a little narcissism to start your day! I have always loved my hair. Right now it is awful. It hasn’t been cut in forever (almost a year), and it is getting pretty stringy. Oh, and lets not mention the gray. My oldest grandson asked me if I’d […]

Ok, yes, I am behind. Guess I’ll play a little ‘CatchUp’ today! My Biggest Insecurity This was not an easy topic for me. Not because I am embarrassed about any insecurities I might have, but because I just couldn’t think of anything I felt particularly insecure about. I think the only real insecurity I have […]

Are You Named After Anyone?I have the honor of being named after not one, but TWO people! First I have to say, although I absolutely love the two people I was named after, I have always felt like my name came out of a book about hillbillies in the Ozark Mountains. I guess it doesn’t […]

My Least Favorite ChoreWhat kind of topic is that? They are all my least favorite. I have come to a point in my life though, now, that I realize none of them are that bad. No specific chore I have takes that long, and my children are at an age where they can, and do […]

Something That Bugs MeI suppose there are several things that bug me.
