I have found that a whole different life has been passing me by. I have worked for most of my adult life, but I have been unemployed for the past 13 months. In this time I have discovered that if you can slow down your life, not always rush through, you… Read full post »
Google myself? I was reading a post by Cranky Cuss and decided to give it a try. He said he had googled his Blog name to see what happened. I did the same. Nothing really impressive there.
Then, I decided to google my real name (maiden name) and it came… Read full post »

Every year the annual Junior College World Series is held in our valley in Western Colorado. For one week we all get a peek at some really great baseball. This year was no different. We were witness to watching the first round draft pick play on our diamond, in our park,… Read full post »
My house is my own again. Well at least for now. My husband's 17 year old son has been staying with us off and on for two weeks now.
It's not like thats a really bad thing, it's just that this kid tends to lie. He and his mom and… Read full post »
So, I check the daily trend lines and feel so out of it. I read on and luckily there are explainations further down the page. I usually don't read that far because I get bored easily. I have readers ADD (or something like that).
Sometimes I will read a really… Read full post »
I have to admit, I am experimenting with the OS. I tried a "trend" post and then I had what I thought was a very timely post, not trendy and got very little readership. I am with Kit, just write what's on your heart.
If you write it, they will come.… Read full post »
I can remember going to the Memorial Day parade in our little town when I was a little girl. I even carried one of the wreathes that represented the lost women and men of the armed forces.
Of course at that time I really had no idea what that really… Read full post »
I found the anwswer for the huge bp oil spill. Now this might offend some, so look the other way when they actually try this.
My answer is a giant tampon. They could put it into a torpedo shell filled with super absorbant material. Then shoot it right into the… Read full post »
I found my son! Well, not exacly my son, but I found where he is. Thanks to the internet and blogging, I have read where his unit is now.
I go through spurts of devouring anything I can find about Afghanistan. Sometimes I just let it go and pretend that life… Read full post »
Monday is my letter writing day. I write to my son, his girlfriend, my husband's nephew, another buddy of my son's that is deployed, that I have never met, and my nephew that is in prison. All of the letters (except my nephew's) are written to people in the military. I… Read full post »
I read through Frogtown Divas and Kit's lists and couldn't wait to start my own. Here goes. I think where you live has a lot to do with what you have gotten accomplished on the list...
O Shot gun, I don't personally have one, but my son does … Read full post »
Planting the garden always makes me feel "earthy". I love the planning, planting, and digging in the dirt. After that it is just alot of work until harvest time. Oh, I do my fair share of watering and I will even pull weeds until they get taller than me, but I… Read full post »
I had a hard time picking only 12, but here they are in no particular order.
1. Like Water for Chocolate- This movie has subtitles but it is hot, hot, hot....
2. Oh Brother Where Art Thou-"My Hair".
3. Chocolat - I love Johnny Depp
4. 13 Going on 30 -… Read full post »
Stress and the human heart. My dad keeps telling me that stress is bad for me and long-term stress can kill. Yes, Yes I know all that, but how do you stop a speeding train?
I think a nervous break down is in my future. I'm not sure, either that… Read full post »
So today, yesterday and actually all last week I have been a basketcase. I have not heard from my son in Afghanistan and I am really getting edgy. Not in a good way either. I have a wonderful cat that thinks he is my caregiver and walks me gently to the… Read full post »
My son is a Marine in Afghanistan. A war, maybe not our war, but a war non-the-less.
So, I know that this may become tiresome,but I have to post my feelings about my son. I have not heard from him for more than three weeks now.
He continues to… Read full post »
1. I interviewed the President of the United States
2. I had my photos displayed in an art gallery in Denver
3. I climbed a glacier
Step one on the journey is one of being carried.
Step two is the process of walking, stumbling,falling on my own.
Step three, I can now fly, I can live, I can love, I can be myself...
I, for one, try to avoid anything that has to do with dusting. I am on a one woman crusade to see how long I can accumulate dust in my house. I have caught my husband cleaning off the t.v. screen in order to see the colors of the jerseys on… Read full post »
I looked up my nephew's pictures on face book yesterday. He has just graduated from Air Force boot camp. He looked proud, hopeful and shiny. Just like they all do after boot camp. They are so gung-ho, ready to go.
After my son's graduation from boot… Read full post »
To feel cloudy on a sunny is day, I know is but a sin,
I feel I must shut you out, or at the least not let you in.
I feel a bit betrayed, A small shadow in the shade.
I shared my deepest heart secrets and yet,
You were all fighting over who… Read full post »
So I am a study in dichotomy. I am a pacifist and my son is a Marine deployed to Afghanistan. I support my son, yet oppose the war. I tried with every breath in my body to talk him out of this crazed idea to become a Marine.
My husband always reminds me… Read full post »
I have only just started my jouney with this OS family.
I only stepped in a few weeks ago
I am now living vicariously through your many musings and writings.
I wish for my own reveal, my coming out, my baring of my soul.
I have only cracked the window… Read full post »
I wrote this title of this blog, but kept putting off actually writing it.
One of my favorite sayings was in a newletter with smart-alec quotes.
It said, "The apathetics anonymous meeting has been cancelled due to lack of interest."
I would love to write this in 101 words,… Read full post »
