Wednesday~   Leave a comment

Well it is finally here.

The last day of the 2016-2017 school year.

I am thrilled.

Now I just have to get through the next eight hours.

I am sure it will be fine.

I envy teachers and their helpers who have the entire summer off.

Damn why did I say I would come back?
I know why, because I need the money but still…..

Ahh well…..I Feel it keeps me in better shape then if I didn’t work here.

I get my two hours of cardio every morning working here.

Day one of two~   Leave a comment

Today is day one of the last two days before school is out.

It really can’t get here soon enough.

But we are moving to a new school so there is a huge amount of packing that needs done and things needing cleanedย to be ready for the move.

The moving days are June 5th and 6th.

It will be crazy here.

Not looking forward to it at all.




But at least the kids will be gone after tomorrow.

Family Time~   Leave a comment

We had our three kids over with their families today.

It was a good time.
Paula wasn’t able to make it which is sad but it still was enjoyable with the others.

Emily’s husband Adam sliced open his finger this morning at work and had to go to the emergency room to get five stitches in it.

But other than that it was a great day.
Temps were low seventies with full sunshine and a nice breeze.

It was a great Memorial Day for this family.

72 degrees but the sun is warm~   Leave a comment

It is a beautiful day in Iowa today.
But that sun is damn hot.

I sat out for a bit and it felt like I was burning.

Love this cool weather though with the sun shining and not a cloud in the sky.

Literally beautiful.

It’s not the ocean but it is nice.

Time~   Leave a comment


Time is fleeting.
This day has flown by.

Luckily I have two more before I have to go back to work, but I can’t understand how fast this day has gone.

I haven’t watched TV, I haven’t cemented myself into a good book, and I haven’t been on the computer so how has this day gone by so fast?
I haven’t a clue.

I’ve just been really busy doing things…..


I can not wait till I can retire…….then every day can be filled with things I love to do……

Woes~   Leave a comment

My two younger sisters are going through a lot of stressful stuff lately.

Both are besides themselves with worry about this or that.

I wish I could make it easier for both of them.

My life is almost stress free and I wonder why I am so lucky when they struggle so much?

I am not saying my life is perfect because it isn’t.

I could be thinner.

I would love to not have any back or knee pains.

I would love to be married to someone who was romantic and affectionate.

I would love to be rich and I would love to be able to write……..

But I really have no complaints.

So why then do they struggle so much?
Choices they make or what?

I don’t know but I hate to see them struggling and stressing over everything.


As always they are in my prayers~

Dogs~   Leave a comment


About a month ago my son had to put his pug down.

Milo is pictured above.

He was full of cancer.

Well now his basset hound, pictured in the first photo is full of cancer too and he told me last night he will have to put him down in the next week or so.

It makes me very sad.

I wasn’t really fond of Milo but I love Copper.

I adore that dog.

I love him so much I have tried several times to get my son to give Copper to me.

But alas….he is going to go to dog heaven to be with Milo.

They were best buds who loved each other.
You could always tell by the way they stuck together.
And Copper would always wait for Milo to catch up to him, when Milo got slow and old.

I love dogs.

But I hate when they have to die.
