How Do You Say Goodbye?
Published on Tuesday, June 16, 2009 by I was raised in a Navy family, which meant moving several times during my life.  As a matter of fact, I thought everyone moved like we did.  It was normal to say goodbye to close friends, knowing there was heartbreak to follow but new friends in the near future.  My own children do not know this type of life.  We live in a Navy area so they have said goodbye to...
Wet Posteriors, Baby Deer and Flat Tires
Published on Sunday, June 7, 2009 by How can I describe this weekend?  Hmmm.  Let's see.  In one word?  Eventful.  Friday night involved arriving home from work and packing for the beach house.  Rain was imminent so we loaded quite a lot early on.  Before we were done the rain hit, and hit HARD.  I had my two boys, three of their friends and my daughter all staring out the window at the sheets...
The Ocean Never Really Leaves You
Published on Tuesday, May 26, 2009 by This weekend, we were at my mother's in the Outer Banks.  Our home away from home.  Paradise.  My children were raised on this beach.  We have had ups and downs there, just as one has at home.  From many a stomach flu to many moments of hysterical laughter... from spotting deer and fox behind the house to watching fireworks shot directly above us... from huge dou...
I’m Sorry
Published on Sunday, May 10, 2009 by I think one of the hardest things to do in life is to admit when you did something really stupid and apologize to make things right.  In trying to be funny recently, I hurt some amazing people. I hate being a “human” sometimes.  It is so hard to always get it right.  And when I personally get things wrong, I often do it in a very big way. I humbly apologi...
The Kindness of Strangers
Published on Friday, May 1, 2009 by I received a call from my son's high school Lacrosse coach today.  He said that one of the kids on the team was signed up (and paid) for two Lacrosse day camp sessions at a nearby local college for the summer.  It is a four day camp, meals included (in the a/c dining center), excellent coach and training, indoor Lacrosse as well as outdoor... it is the bomb-diggety....
What Scratches YOUR Itch?
Published on Monday, April 27, 2009 by Coming down from a wonderful weekend. Over 90 degrees both days. Sheer heaven. Lacrosse, track, botanical gardens, church spaghetti dinner, Mass... busy and fun.  After last night's dinner, my 15 year old son took my 8 year old daughter in the back yard with lacrosse sticks and a hacky-sack ball.  I followed and quietly sat on the deck to watch.  It was getting ...
Making Memories, Saving Worms and Splashing in Puddles
Published on Monday, April 20, 2009 by Today I found out my daughter needs to have dental work done in the local children's hospital.  Make that, in the children's hospital I work at.  She will be knocked out for three hours.   As if this wasn't enough stress, I also found out the total amount I need to have paid before they even touch her is $1,200.  I don't suppose anyone has this in their back p...
Turning Grandma into a Diamond Ring
Published on Thursday, April 9, 2009 by A bit of a morbid post, but we had quite the conversation about this in the office.  During lunch I heard an NPR show about funeral homes, funerals and rituals.  One of the hosts mentioned a company that will make a genuine diamond out of your loved one's ashes.  Am I the only one who finds this strange?   Let's see, I'm wearing my purple suit today.  "Hmm...
Happy Birthday to My Dear Friend Tina
Published on Wednesday, April 8, 2009 by Today is a very special day.  It's my friend Tina's birthday.  If I could, I would shower her with flowers, chocolate, jewelry and a singing telegram.  A hot, good looking male singing telegram - Rated G of course, because her faith is strong.  (But she could certainly appreciate a singing telegram, right?)  With times as they are, I am unable to send my long ...
Jane and the Dragon: My Very Creepy Mini-Me!
Published on Monday, April 6, 2009 by I recently saw a children's animated show that FREAKED ME OUT.  It might have even freaked my family out as well.  And it's all thanks to digital TV.  We don't have cable.  Never did.  I can't afford it, and even if I found a way I know that everyone would sit in front of the boob tube all day.  Now that we have digital TV, there are some extra channels we...
Random Brain Day!
Published on Friday, April 3, 2009 by Today seems to be a “random thought day.”  I have “things” on my mind.  Perhaps if I write about them, I can “cast them out!”  -My tooth hurts.    And I hate the dentist.  I had a cleaning scheduled last summer, and got the flu so I could not go.  Did I reschedule?  Nope.  I had dental work prior to that – a filling that had “gone bad.”...
X-Ray Machine, Here We Come!
Published on Tuesday, March 10, 2009 by "Lacrosse?  Oh, sure honey.  You can join Lacrosse."  (Isn't that similar to soccer?  Just two nets, some innocent sticks and a tiny little ball?)  Since then, I've heard the following quotes from other adults:  "I HATE Lacrosse!  It is the most violent sport there is!"  "I stopped wearing my glasses during my son's games.... I just can't look!"  "Lacrosse...
