Searching for a Lottery Win and Infographic

Searching for a Lottery Win and Infographic

Are you still searching for a lottery win like I am? Although I do not always buy a lottery ticket, I do buy them fairly often. My feeling is you can’t win the lottery unless you play the lottery. I only buy one ticket per lottery game at any given time. To me, the $1-$2 price is worth the entertainment value of me dreaming of what I will do when I win (you’ve got to think positive). Hubby poo-poos my lottery tickets but I tell him if he is doing that then when I win I will not share my prize money … Continue Reading →

Neighbors – The Good and the Bad

Neighbors – The Good and the Bad

I’m taking my own advice and using and writing today using my 52 Prompts for Bloggers. I’m starting out at the top of the list which is a prompt about neighbors. So I have lots of neighbors and I’ve lived in the same place for over 20 years so I have seen many come and go also. There have been a few I’ve been happy to see leave, but many I do miss. My example of what makes a bad neighbor is right next door to me. Ugh. Now when she moved in we were very nice to her and … Continue Reading →

I’m Still Here and Giveaway Update

I’m Still Here and Giveaway Update

Yes, I am still here! As you probably can tell I haven’t been posting here on the blog very much lately. The twins both got a stomach virus, then they both got RSV and ear infections, and then of course, it got passed on to Hubby and I. Ugh! I never did daycare with my own son, but the twins started a few months ago and are bringing home all sorts of cooties unfortunately. I *think* we are all on the mend now though. Fingers crossed for no more major cooties and bugs. Along with illness, I have been depressed … Continue Reading →
Yes, I am here still!

Yes, I am here still!

Yikes! It has been over a week since I have posted anything here on the blog. I’m so sorry. I promise, I am here still. Life has just been a bit crazy though. Everyday I say I am setting aside this amount of time to blog and then something happens and I don’t do it. Ugh. I used to be able to stay up late to work, but now, with the twins, I’m exhausted by the time they get into bed usually and so I go to bed too. Morning may be my new go to time that I have … Continue Reading →
Full-Time Grandma Duties – I’m getting old!

Full-Time Grandma Duties – I’m getting old!

So for those wondering where I have been the last several days, here is the explanation. First, you all know that my amazing twin granddaughters, Violet and Valerie, were born on March 10. It is so wonderful being a grandma even though I still feel far to young to be one. At the time the twins were born (and for a bit before) my son, T, and DIL, Caitlan (she’s not legally my DIL, but I call her that anyway) have been living with us. Then T had some issues and he was no longer here. Caitlan and the twins … Continue Reading →
The Courts Make Non-Criminals Feel Like Victims

The Courts Make Non-Criminals Feel Like Victims

Okay, another rant today. This is again about all my son’s stuff that is happening, but from a different angle. First, my son has done all the things they have said he has done (to the best of my knowledge) and it is his fault for getting in trouble. I am not blaming the courts and criminal system for his own actual actions. I do also understand that ultimately it is still on his shoulders that myself and my family and dealing with all of this. But… OMG! The legal system is so difficult to understand and learn for the loved … Continue Reading →
Sadness on Mother’s Day – What’s Happening in My Life

Sadness on Mother’s Day – What’s Happening in My Life

So today is going to be a bit of a rant and an emptying of many thoughts in my head about what is happening in my family lately. I’m just warning you ahead of time. Another warning is that this is *MY* story. Yes, it involves my family, especially my son, but even so these are things happening to me that I need to get out and I want to share because I know I am not alone in things like this happening in families. I love my son unconditionally, always have, always will, but that does not mean I … Continue Reading →
