"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

let's do the time warp again...





how is it possible that our little punky girl is headed off to kindergarten today?  I want to go back, sweet baby, back to the start when you were shiny and new and everyone thought you looked like g'ma...then you grew up.  Look at you now.  So beautiful and happy and so very ready for this new adventure.  p.s.  your mom and dad started crying as soon as you turned away.  I did the same when your daddy got on the school bus.  Enjoy my love.

Today marks two months since my surgery.  I has been a slow, very arduous recovery but finally, finally I am feeling stronger, am sleeping only at night and able to take care of my own house again.  I still need help with some things and still no lifting or caffeine.  I think the caffeine is the hardest part to overcome!

We have only had a few scattered days of summer sunshine and hot weather and now I can feel Fall is on the way when I go out in the evening.  Love Fall but I love summer sunshine the best...maybe an Indian summer is on tap.  How are  you all doing my dear ones?  I know a few of you are waiting for Spring...it will be here soon.  take care all.

I don't know why, I really don't....

...know why I wander the halls of my memories, questioning every decision I've ever made, wondering how to fix all my mistakes (especially the ones involving my babies), when I should be sleeping soundly.  The first couple of weeks after my surgery I splept well and began to think my insomnia was gone but silly me, it was just taking a small vacation while I healed.  Now that I am feeling better and stronger it is back, ugly tears and all.

Recovery is moving forward and my last kidney tests show the little guy doing his job...although I am delighted and cheering on the little kidney that could I am desperately seeking some caffeine.  It's a no-no for now and it's been five weeks without and is not getting easier.  I want to nap....all the time!

For the last few years hubby and I have been considering moving.  Several reasons have prompted this; wanting to live closer to the kids and grands (right now they are about 80-100 miles away, one way.  The next is the up-keep of a home, which is getting harder and harder for Parkinson man to deal with and I am really worthless in that area.  Things here are starting to show delayed maintenance and we can't afford a yard man.  So we looked at the budget and began looking at a few.  Our options are limited as we do not want stairs but we did see a few last weekend.  Now they might need a little fixing up but the price is right!







 I am particularly fond of the last one as I do like having a skylight or two.  What do you think?   Be well friends.   talk soon  ;j
