Diamonds and Rhinestones

I lost the diamond out of my wedding ring.  It goes without saying that I’m fairly devastated about the whole thing.  First of all, it was not a cheap diamond.  It wasn’t insured.  But, it’s the sentimental value that is getting to me.  I’m fairly certain that it is somewhere in my house.  And while the diamond is big in comparison to other diamonds, in … Continue reading Diamonds and Rhinestones

A little of the past

Sometimes when you delve into the past, especially a past you could have done without,  and you relive parts of it, the parts that are still raw in your mind, you can start to be reasonable about that past.  You see it differently, from afar, without emotions to cloud your view.  It’s all clear.  And, unfortunately for me, seeing it clouded by emotions was far … Continue reading A little of the past

She’s no home wrecker!

Well, we took down the Christmas decorations and my daughter will be going back to school.  January is always a little bit of a downer.  But, we worked together to put all of the stuff away and took our daughter shopping tonight to get some things she needed, and we are looking forward to 2016.  We are thinking about getting some new furniture, so we … Continue reading She’s no home wrecker!

A whirlwind

It has truly been a whirlwind few weeks for us, as in completely crazy.  Of course, the month of November typically is crazy for everybody.  We have had basketball tryouts and two soccer tournaments and preparing a Thanksgiving dinner for 15, and sitting with someone while they passed, a viewing, a funeral, a birthday party, and a full-on trip to the grocery store.  And, of … Continue reading A whirlwind

Love doesn’t mean 100 percent

From last Friday to this coming Sunday, our lives have been a whirlwind of sports, some ending, others beginning.  Thankfully, they are only overlapping by a week.  We literally have been passing each other in the hallway and collapsing into bed at night.  Thankfully texting and phone calls fill the gaps.  As much as times like these might draw others apart, it brings us together. … Continue reading Love doesn’t mean 100 percent

A New Chapter

Have I mentioned my life is crazy?  Because it is.  There is so much going on that we aren’t sure we are coming or going.  But I feel great, we feel great.  We have crossed that invisible line in the sand that we all know is there, the one that makes us feel insecure and unsure about everything.  Somehow we have beat the odds.  And … Continue reading A New Chapter

Days like today

I don’t know why, but I’m tired.  Just tired of the whole thing, the whole process.  I’m worn down today.  I know that I am not worn down for good, or for even longer than today.  Today, I’m exhausted.  I don’t have a reason to feel this way, I suppose.  It’s just one of my down days.  And these days creep up on me, surprising … Continue reading Days like today

Steve, the turtle, returns to my bizarro world

See this turtle: This turtle showed up at my house today.  My friend was picking me up and she almost ran over him.  We picked him up and moved him to the grass.  Four hours later when we returned back to my house the turtle had crawled back onto the driveway.  We almost ran over him again.  No big deal, right?  Wrong.  This is a … Continue reading Steve, the turtle, returns to my bizarro world
