Life goes on……

“The thing Margo told me about, is that here now?” “What thing?” “The thing, you like it” “Oh you mean the weekend?” “Yes when does that start? We never had weekends when I grew up in Ohio so this is new” “Yes it starts TODAY!!!”  🙂 So went the conversation between Curt and I this…

So long 2011

Well I can’t really say 2011  has been good to us…..but I can thank God for many of the blessings we have seen along the journey of living with Alzheimer’s.  There are many good things that have happened this year, and I am choosing to reflect upon them on this New Years Eve!  It is…

Summer Finally and We’re Off on our baseball adventures!

Summer Break, it’s finally here!  It is much needed and anticipated! My last day of school was somewhat emotional……I cried a bit thinking of what a crazy, exhausting school year it’s been.  From finding out on Oct 1st of Curt’s diagnosis, to the decision for him to stop working, to being at school every day…

He’s 15

SportTman is 15 years old and 6ft. 3in tall!  How did this happen?!!?!  My big teen young man! Well the big 15 year old and I went on a 15 mile bike ride along the C & O Towpath into Washington DC last Monday.  We started in Great Falls, Md and ended in Georgetown just…

Are they different? You bet!

I have been blessed to have both a boy and a girl.  The Inventor is currently 12, soon to be 13 and SportTman is 15.   As you can see from the picture above, they are both such lovely children! I have noticed a “few” differences between them over the years, and just recently heard these…

Teenagers!

Now that I have a son in high school and a daughter in middle school, I have begun to notice a few signs that I am a true mom of teens. I said to my classroom aide “BRB” (texting talk for be right back) when I had to leave class for a moment to go…

Aeropostale

My kids are 12 & 14 and today we bought our first item at Aeropostale.  Actually it was the first time we even went in the store. Aeropostale for those of you with out tweens/teens is one of the latest hip, trendy stores to come down the pike.  “All the kids” are wearing Aeropostale.  Except…

How did I get here!!??

Work for Me Wednesday Tips for moms who are weary! 🙂 For more Works for Me Wednesday, Check out We Are That Family! My 6’1″ son asked today if I could please get him new jeans since his are getting too short…..again!  My daughter asked for band-aids because she cut her leg shaving.  How did…

Life and Times of Me

I got home from school on a beautiful Thurs. afternoon and knew even though my schedule looked VERY busy that I really need to get a nice bike ride workout in. So I attempted to squeeze it in during a 45 min. empty time slot I had.  Thinking that it looked nice out, but that…

Now he knows!

Last Friday I had to work while the kids were home alone, just saying home alone, can bring to mind memories of Kevin McCallisters adventures.  But alas, my kids were not chasing robbers from our home and running amuck all over town. As a matter of fact SportTman was assigned the task of doing his…

The Inventor

It all started years ago when my dear little girl at the time wondered why her big brother never decorated his forts in the woods.  My sweet girl is now11 and I refer to her in blog land as The Inventor.  She is ALWAYS inventing ways to do things in an easier manner, inventing new…

For a moment

I think my daughter will turn out ok…… I came up from the basement yesterday to hear The Inventor running the vacuum cleaner in her room.  My first thought was, what did she spill now?  What kind of mess will I encounter when I arrive at her room, I thought to myself.  I slowly made…
