Restoring My Faith in People
Published on Sunday, December 16, 2012 by Just look at the news.  Because I don’t.  Not anymore.  Robberies.  Child Abuse.  SHOOTINGS.  I’ve come to lose faith in many things lately, with mankind right up there at the top.  I often wonder exactly where this world is heading. How often do you turn on the television and hear a story of kindness and good?  Not often.  So how about a little hope r...
Hole In The Wall
Published on Saturday, September 29, 2012 by My neighbor Heather shot her first gun at five years old.  And hunting?  A grouse at 12 and a deer at 14.  That was in Washington State.  Now she lives next door, across the country from her mother, father, family and church. Not long after she and her husband moved in, her husband went on duty overseas.  Yup.  He is in the Navy.  Out of the 28 months they hav...
Baby Deer and Broken Trees
Published on Friday, August 10, 2012 by Where have I been?  Obviously not blogging, right?  How in the world did this week get away from me! Over the last few weeks, I have been…. Agonizing over my car.  First, $700 for the new hood latch and headlights.  Then it rolled over 100,000 and seemingly blew up.  New cam shaft sensors and other guy stuff to the tune of $1,114.  Two weeks later, I now nee...
Summer Beauty
Published on Thursday, July 26, 2012 by Beauty and tweens.  These two words seem to go together.  I’m not sure exactly when it started, but start it did.  The moment I noticed my daughter was shaving her legs.  Without telling me, that is.  “But Mom, there was so much hair on them!  I didn’t look pretty!”Even last week, as we packed for our summer vacation, “Mom, do I look pretty in this?”...
What to Expect During an MRI
Published on Sunday, July 15, 2012 by Two weeks of pain.  Time for an MRI, ya think?  My very first.  I don’t have a lot of those left! Three different people from the hospital three different times asked, “Are you claustrophobic? “  Perhaps I should have gotten the hint? I arrived at 7:15 a.m., did the paperwork, had to listen to the stories of the many sexual escapades in the Olympic Village...
Wait… I’m on VACATION!?
Published on Monday, July 2, 2012 by We are on our week family vacation at the beach house right now.  No more blog writing challenges, no more getting up for work, no more “you have to be here at this time.”  Funny how it takes time to actually RELAX.  I’m not quite there yet. Unfortunately, I left town without getting the proper medical treatment that I really needed, leaving me with a week o...
How To Save A Vole
Published on Monday, May 28, 2012 by *This story has a not so happy surprise ending.  You have been warned. Funny, when you google, “How do you take care of a vole,” you get things like, “Getting rid of Voles” and “How to Kill a Vole.”  Not quite what I was looking for.  Let me explain. Two days ago, my daughter called me in a panic.  “MOM!  My friend and I need your help really bad!...
How To Remove A Splinter
Published on Sunday, May 20, 2012 by How to remove a splinter may be putting it delicately.  Because this weekend, my daughter had to perform surgery on her own foot. In my eyes, however, she was not removing a simple splinter from her big toe, but a giant tree of death. Saturday I left my daughter and her friend with two 18-year-olds while my mother and I took a 20-minute trip up the street.  After g...
Corolla Beach House Fires
Published on Sunday, May 6, 2012 by “Several beach houses catch fire in Corolla!” That is what I heard the minute I turned on the television.  Where!  Mom’s house?!  When! It was with great relief that they immediately began to show pictures of the three houses on fire.  These were McMansions, not my mother’s modest beach cottage. In one breath I felt relief for us, and sadness for the ow...
From Wheels to Icebergs
Published on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 by During the April 2012 30-Day Photo Challenge, I had to post a picture of wheels.  Simple enough.  I posted the following: Funny thing though.  This simple picture led to a new post.  A post that I realized was NOT ALLOWED in the photo contest.  During the contest, we are restricted to only 250 words per picture.  My new wheel post?  435.  So here is the ...
If You Won The Lottery
Published on Saturday, March 31, 2012 by What would you do? As of this writing, there are three lucky winners of the largest Mega Millions jackpot in history.  I can't wait to hear their stories! I am not a huge lottery player, but I will get a ticket once or twice a month.  This week I had one ticket for each child, one for me and entered a ten-dollar office lotto pool.  My 18-year-old won two dollar...
Is Hitchhiking Illegal?
Published on Thursday, March 8, 2012 by   It was initially supposed to be a four-dollar fix.  Or it would have been for anyone else in this world.  But this is me.  Remember… Shoot Me Now? This is how it went down: “Katherine, your left headlight is broken.” I go to the auto supply store during lunch.  I tell the gentleman my make and model. He provides me with a new headlight....
