Happy Thanksgiving #NaBloPoMo

Every year my SIL shares this video and every year it makes me laugh so I figured I would pass it along. I love Thanksgiving and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

The Boys Are Back In Town #NaBloPoMo

Our two oldest boys are back from college for Thanksgiving break.  It makes me so happy to see them and hang out with them.

We went to my MIL’s house for dinner and will go to my aunt’s for Thanksgiving day.

We spend the late evening talking about the world, current events, what’s going on in our lives, how college life is going.  I miss conversations with them so we try to catch up on everything.

Then its movie time and our oldest usually picks since he is the big movie buff.  We’ll see if this one lives up to his hype.

Visits are far too short.  We miss them so much when they are at school.  Our 3rd will be off to college in the next few years too.

It’s said all the time but it really is so true.  They grow up so fast.

Feelings on Ferguson #NaBloPoMo

Sick Angry Sad Helpless Confused Exasperated A whirlwind of emotions I felt as I watched the press conference concerning the possible indictment of the officer who killed Michael Brown in Ferguson. As it started you could see where it was going.  It seemed as if it were a long explanation in an effort to soften […]

Parent Teacher Conferences #NaBloPoMo

In the last few years the parent/teacher conferences at the elementary school have gotten later in the year.  They have moved them to the same week as Thanksgiving instead of early October when they used to be.  In some ways it is good because the teachers have more time to get to know the kids […]

Random Round-Up 27

This is a random set of tidbits from the week along with a sprinkling of bloggy love. I think I’m ready to grow my hair a little longer again.  I’ve had it short for many years now, since I donated to Locks of Love, having it that long was kind of a pain so I […]

Guns #NaBloPoMo

As I got back from the bus stop the other day and took off my shoes, I had a flash in my mind of the unthinkable, though sadly it has happened to others.  I thought to myself, this month before another heartbreaking anniversary, how I would react if a mentally unstable person took aim at […]

Renaissance Festival #NaBloPoMo


Last month we took A and T to the Renaissance Festival.  It has been so many years since we have been there.  When my stepsons were younger we used to go just about every year.  But they eventually tired of going so A and T really don’t remember being there before. They enjoyed the visit […]

Context Switching #NaBloPoMo

I feel like a spend a lot of time context switching.  One minute I am doing one thing and then I have to switch to another, then another, then another.  I may never get back to the original task.  I may not even remember the original task.  Until days later when I realize I never […]

It’s hard to leave work at work #NaBloPoMo

I work as a software engineer from my home.  And although my husband goes into the office, he and I work for the same company. We often find ourselves talking about whatever the latest work emergency is.  Whatever is currently going on. We work in the same area though do different day-to-day tasks.  But there […]

Bring On Menopause #NaBloPoMo

I don’t know many women who look forward to menopause but I gotta say that I will embrace it.  You see, it is the last big hormonal shift my body will go through and I have some hopes for that shift. When I was adjusting migraine medications to prepare for getting pregnant with my son, […]
