August 5, 2021 – Unexpected Blessings (Part One)

I have to tell you, this past week has been a blur! Fortunately, it started off and ended on a ‘high note’ as the week began with an offer on my/our home and ended with successfully finding a home to move my mom into. I feel like I’ve been on a wild amusement park rideContinue reading “August 5, 2021 – Unexpected Blessings (Part One)”

July 26, 2021 – Shower Talk

What a strange day it’s been! An open house was scheduled so I suggested to my husband that we plan a little overnight getaway and spend some time with my family on the other side of the mountains (since we had to make ourselves scarce anyway). After checking with the dog boarder to see ifContinue reading “July 26, 2021 – Shower Talk”

April 3, 2021 – How are things in Glocca Morra?

January 17, 2021 – The gift that keeps on giving.

I woke up this morning anxiety-free. It was delightful! Do you know how rare that is?! And once I got out of bed (calm and at peace) and got cleaned up and dressed, I padded down the stairs and made my way to the kitchen, whereby I commenced preparing breakfast. It was the usual, scrambledContinue reading “January 17, 2021 – The gift that keeps on giving.”

January 13, 2021 – Goldilocks

Looks like today is going to be ‘all about Mom’. I spoke to her briefly this afternoon. She wasn’t happy but that’s nothing new. When I asked her what she’d been up to, she said, “Nothing much.” It’s hard to know what to say to her because she’s determined to be unhappy. She never wantedContinue reading “January 13, 2021 – Goldilocks”
