Just Don’t Take Up Residence There

I had a hard time falling asleep last night. It happens sometimes. Thankfully, not often. At least not as often as it used to. I just couldn’t turn off my head, ya know? Lots of tumbling thoughts. Disjointed thoughts, one after another. I hate when this happens. You would think I’d be used to this […]

After the Holidays

Well, the holidays are over, and things are back to normal. I had a great Christmas this year, which is better than I expected, since my mom died on Christmas Eve two years ago (which, if you follow my blog, you remember) and I thought it might be rough for me around this time. But, […]

Made it Through Thanksgiving!

Whew! Made it through Thanksgiving! And that was an accomplishment, believe me. In my husband’s family, you’re supposed to take turns having the family over for Thanksgiving dinner. Unfortunately, Mamaw is 94 some years old now, so that eliminates her from having people over. And Bill’s mom can’t handle having so many people in her […]

Can’t Take Life Too Seriously

There is a line in the Batman movie that I just love. The Joker says to Batman, “Why so serious?” My husband and I say that line to each other when we think the other one is being too serious, and we haven’t laughed in a while. It at least makes us smile, if not […]

Remembering When

I hate paying bills. I do. I really hate paying bills. Each month, on the 3rd of the month when I get my Disability check, I sit down with all the bills, and I pay them. But I hate doing it! On the other hand, I remember when… In 2011, my husband was in a […]

Catching Up

Well, it’s been a long time since I’ve written. I had problems with my blog, and just got them fixed. Whew! Hopefully, I’ll be able to catch you up in this post. The biggest thing that’s happened is that my dad died in May. I know that I wrote a lot about his ongoing struggle […]

Good News About Biopsy

You know about my CKD (chronic kidney disease), right? Well, last Friday morning they did a biopsy on my right kidney, and I just got the results this morning. I was so worried that the results would be so bad, because my blood values had been so low – my GFR was only 17, just […]

Pneumonia Still Hanging On

Well, here’s the thing – I’m thinking maybe the doctor shouldn’t have discharged my husband from the hospital on Christmas Eve. I think he probably did it too early, maybe just so we could have Christmas at home, because he certainly wasn’t better. In fact, here it is over a month later and he still […]

Christmas in the Hospital?

Mom died at 8:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve, a year ago. I miss her so much. But I didn’t fall apart this year like I thought I would. See I kind of had my hands full… Saturday, Bill (my husband) wasn’t feeling well. He was coughing and congested, and we thought it was just maybe […]

Thanksgiving Thoughts

This past Thanksgiving I had a rude awakening and had some startling insights into myself. Each Thanksgiving and Christmas, we take turns in my husband’s family having the holiday dinner at our house and having everyone over. This Thanksgiving it was his Uncle Roy and Aunt Cheryl’s turn. Well, not only did they not have […]
