New Year resolutions

I realize I am a day early on the new year’s resolutions or two if you count the actual day, but I have time today to write a blog and I won’t again till New Year’s day. Tomorrow I am going to have lunch with my youngest sister and then we are having my grand…

thought for the day

Well here it is, the second week of winter break. That means a week from today school starts again. Amazing to me how quickly time passes.   Our Christmas was nice. Having all 4 of our children together is quite wonderful and rare. Although Paula does come around more often then she use to.  …

the day after

well here it is the day after Christmas 2014. our actual Christmas day was a bum day. it may as well have been a weekend, since we did nothing with our children. That is tonight at my son Matt’s house. I am at work and have no desire what so ever to be here. originally…

Christmas

it really hardly feels like Christmas this year. no snow on the ground and we aren’t even celebrating till the 26th, but that isn’t even the reason.

my better half

so since my husband had the audacity to tell my eldest sister Carolyn, that he does whatever makes me happy, I decided it was time he got on Facebook and connected with other people in all honesty I have been trying to get him to do it for a few years now but I bought…

thinking out loud

you know, there are things I wish I had done when I was younger. things I still would like to do before I die. I will never be perfect or beautiful and I am a sinner and continue to be a sinner. but through it all, thick and thin, I have tried to be a…

Monday blahs

well here it is Monday afternoon. I have thirty minutes before I can go home. my  night custodian didn’t come into work due to a cough. he has missed at least ten days of work this school year so far. not sure how our boss feels about that but we were warned at the beginning…

annoyed

so we had a great weekend temperature wise. near fifty both days. I didn’t have to come in and do the building checks because my night custodian likes to do two a month. anyway I am annoyed because I come into work this morning and it is 90 degrees in here. he did not turn…
