    I know I’m a little late, but the thought I struggle to break of is “I have to…” For a while I had grown to hate Mondays because I would always start out the week with a list of things I needed to do, hoping to make a big dent on Monday. Then something would […]

    Hi Jane, I know your pain. With a few changes in details, I am going through the same things you are: deep financial problems, loss of insurance, progressive disease, frustration that no one else seems to be taking it seriously, government agencies with lots of ridiculous paperwork, stupid rules, and mis-steps that couldn’t care less. […]

  • Breakfast with Chip, Dale, then Monsters!

  • Hi Jane, Frist, no, don’t shut up. It is good that you are writing and venting here. Even though I haven’t had the time to comment, I have been following what and evenone else has been writing. I really feel for you and what you are going through. I’ve been there recently myself. My wife […]

    Hi Kathy,

    I am so sorry for the pain that this must cause. I can only imagine.

    I hope the donut helped!

    Thank you Natalie for such a wonderful reminder that the pain of loss is only temporary. My wife and I went through a major “pruning” over the past year, and I can start to see some wonderful and amazing things starting to grow back.

  • That is what Debi’s paid caregiver’s grandson said we were doing on Friday. Friday we decided to take a short trip to the county fair. We were interested in the home-made goods. We had thought about entering some things, but decided we would check it out this year and maybe enter something next year. We […]

  • Oh how sweet! You both have really wonderful daughters!

  • G-J,

    I’m glad you were able to take your dream trip and that it went well. Thanks for sharing it with us. Alaska is one place we would love to see.

    Liliana, Thank you for sharing your frustration. Everyone else has given some great advice. Please find someone to talk to, tell your family that the way they are acting is unacceptable, and take time for yourself. Your life is too precious! I am praying for you and your family! Please let us know how you […]

  • Happy Anniversary Denise. Thank you for all that you do!

    Hi Liliana – I completely understand how much having some extra money can relieve a lot of stress. But make sure you make time for your friends. When I was in high school and college I also worked fulltime, but I also made time for hanging out with my friends. Learning to find time to […]

  • Wow, what a good question. A day off along with a good nights sleep have long gone the way of the Easter Bunny. Something I vaguely remember believing in. :-) Seriously, it has been at least 8 years since I have truly had a day off (and that was a business trip). I take breaks […]

  • Oh, Trish, I am so sorry to her about your mother-in-law and like everyone else am glad you told us. Please keep us posted.

  • YES!! I agree, lately I’ve been feeling like all I do is restart over again (yes, that is intentionally redundant.) I think I have a feel for what I need to do, get started. Then blam, I get plowed over by some new situation.

  • Along with moving the other thing we seem to have been doing a lot of over the past year is letting go. We let go of just about everything we had amassed over the past 20 years. Starting with our house (and most of the things in it), my job, our motor home, our store, […]
