Paint Memories

This morning I paid bills while I drank coffee and ate breakfast. Then I went outside to paint the garage. Well, first I had to scrape off the old paint. The garage is actually quite weatherbeaten so most of the old paint was already… Continue Reading “Paint Memories”

JJ’s Interview

7:30 a.m. is not too early in the morning unless a person has spent half the night thinking exciting and planning thoughts. Then it is much too early. Ugh. JJ texted me when he got back to the motel after dropping his Dad off at work.… Continue Reading “JJ’s Interview”

Here There Be Spiders

This morning after I drank coffee and ate breakfast, I went upstairs and mudded the drywall for a bit. I really don’t mind this task. It’s sort of fun. When I came downstairs, Danny asked to be let outside. I headed for the back… Continue Reading “Here There Be Spiders”

Progress

I woke up groggy from a night of little sleep. Ugh. A lot of nights I don’t sleep very well because my mind is busy with the excitement of the coming move, as well as trying to plan everything. For example, we close on… Continue Reading “Progress”

Weekend Work

Friday morning I woke up early–groaning because I didn’t sleep well the night before–to take Danny to the veterinary for his surgery. It took a few tries to get him in the cage at the vet’s.  I stooped down, gave him lovings, told him… Continue Reading “Weekend Work”

Little Bear & Danny

Yesterday it snowed off and on through the day. The falling snow looked like a snow globe. The snow did not stick on the ground. Today I didn’t see any snow, but it’s been a bit cold. I wore my winter coat, hat, and… Continue Reading “Little Bear & Danny”

The Herd

EJ is busy in the Emerald City this week running around doing house buying stuff after work. There’s a lot to arrange and do, ugh. I’m his “hero support,” texting him information that the realtor or mortgage person emails me and letting him know… Continue Reading “The Herd”

Busy Plans

EJ is going to be very busy this week. He has to get the earnest money to the realtor, arrange with the mortgage person about our loan, and schedule the property inspection and survey. All this at the end of his busy work days.… Continue Reading “Busy Plans”

There’s No Place Like Home

Friday after work my guys drove home for the weekend. It was so good to see them! I love for the weekends! Saturday we drove to the home improvement store to buy paint so that I could paint the garage, back porch (inside and… Continue Reading “There’s No Place Like Home”

NOT Counting Chickens…

Ugh. I couldn’t get comfortable on the couch last night so at about 2 a.m. I went upstairs and slept in my bed. I didn’t wake coughing–so either I’m finally beginning to make progress with this stupid sickness or the cough medicine worked. When… Continue Reading “NOT Counting Chickens…”

Northern Experience

Tomorrow will complete my week without my family, another week at work for EJ, and JJ’s adventurous first week in the North. I think we are all having adventures of one sort or another and growing through them. I have been alone for a… Continue Reading “Northern Experience”

JJ’s Northern Adventure

There’s really not much to do in our area and JJ never found a close friend who shares his interests. Over the years we’ve looked for interest or hobby groups but none were available. Last February we finally found a writing class offered through… Continue Reading “JJ’s Northern Adventure”

Much and Nothing

I haven’t written for almost two weeks! In that time, it feels as if life has been filled with busyness and with many ups and downs–and yet not a lot has changed. Yet. JJ was sick last week. He felt miserable for a few… Continue Reading “Much and Nothing”
