Earl?  Is That You?
Published on Tuesday, August 31, 2010 by Ahhhh, Earl.  Your name rolls off the tip of my tongue like a salt and vinegar cricket.  You are something I really don’t want but apparently just might taste. Here in Hampton Roads we are watching Hurricane Earl with great interest.  Will it hit us?  Will it not?  And even worse… THE BEACH HOUSE.  My mother’s house in the Outer Banks.  The one with ...
If You Could Only See…
Published on Monday, June 28, 2010 by If you could only see this moon.  Full with a deep orange hue, slowly rising over the dark ocean water. Just a few days ago I was at home crying, overwhelmed at just how out of control things have gotten.  At how I am so behind on bills that I know I will never catch up.  At how I am driving a dangerous car, at how I can’t afford to send my kids to Catholic ...
Flying Solo!
Published on Tuesday, June 8, 2010 by I’m back!  Did you miss me, because I sure missed you!  No internet this weekend – the beach house totally unplugged.  I cheated a little bit tweeting from my phone, but other than that it was complete (and much needed) downtime. What a different beach house weekend, too.  My daughter had her first friend there, my middle son didn’t come and my mother w...

From This… To That…
Published on Monday, October 26, 2009 by This weekend we were blessed with a “last hoorah” trip to Corolla.  Basketball is around the corner, taking up every Saturday and Sunday.  We didn’t care that Saturday was going to be rainy and cold.  After all, it is the BEACH HOUSE!  No stress, no germs, nothing but time.  Time to leave worries behind and to concentrate on getting better. To our GREAT ...
How Do You Hold On To Your Heaven?
Published on Sunday, August 16, 2009 by My heaven is in Corolla.  Do you have a heaven? In the last few weeks, times have become hard.  School is approaching, which inevitably brings work, stress and more work.  School physicals. Medications.  Doctor's prescriptions.  New uniforms.  New high school clothes.   All three kids need two pairs of shoes.  Haircuts for the boys.  A few hundred in scho...
On Vacation, UNPLUGGED!
Published on Sunday, July 5, 2009 by No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I'm on vacation!!!  Sun (ummm, rain too), fireworks, sand... and an occasional internet signal from the house next to us.  So here I am, unplugged.  As a matter of fact I'm typing fast, knowing my signal will drop soon. I'll see you later this week with lots of great stories to come... and I swear... I WILL get up ...
