Running the Race

Back in the days of one flavor of Gatorade, I was a high school and college athlete.  Those were the days when orange Gatorade was the greatest thing out there, trainers at high school sports were non existent, college coaches wrote hand written letters to recruits, and we wore really cool polyester sweat pants to…

A Caregiver?

I remember a few years ago, shortly after Curt was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s going to an online support group for those who know someone with Alzheimer’s.  As I signed up I had to list if I was patient with Alzheimer’s or a caregiver.  I remember thinking, what?!? I was neither, I was Curt’s wife, he…

Life as we know it

I thought I would show you some pics that will give you a glimpse of life as we know it these days! Tyler had a great set of games in Richmond, Va.  It was well over 100 degrees, but we learned how to survive in the heat!  I of course was wondering how am I…

Calm before Spring

I can see it coming.  Pictures like this tell me it’s near. I see it on the horizon of our life. Yep spring will be here before we know it.   I LOVE spring!  I love flowers, and truly relish seeing them begin to rise from the earth and bloom into something so beautiful.  It’s one…

Busy start to the new year…….

Basketball games, lacrosse games and practices, Eagles football game……..yes it’s been a busy start to the new year for us!  And in some ways the busy stuff is a mixed blessing, the kids and I are so caught up in the day to day chaos, that we don’t have time to focus on the perils…

Friday Fave Five

It has been FOREVER since I have done a Friday Fave Five………and as I sip a little coffee on my deck this morning, I was thinking today would be a great day to do it! Although I must say I really can not confine the Fave Five to just one week.  So please allow me…

HOME!!!!

My alarm on my phone went off loudly playing some catchy ringtone at 6:30 am yesterday.  I hit the snooze button…..weary and tired, not wanting to get up.  But then I remembered………..we are going HOME today!!!!  Suddenly, I was inspired, turned off the snooze, made a beeline for the coffee, then woke up the rest…

Lessons learned on the Road…..

So as you know we have been on the road a great deal this summer for Tyler’s baseball team.  And first of all I am VERY thankful for this picture! Yep that is my boy with his driver’s license!  With all the driving we are doing this summer, it’s so nice to have another “official…

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…

I know it’s been forever……..

Yes it’s been over a month since I posted on this blog of mine……. And why do you think I have not posted………………                              I have just been way too busy this month. My mind is on overload and I just couldn’t possibly add any more info in. I saw  a t-shirt the other day…

I don’t know……….

I thought to myself today that I should update my blog since it’s been awhile…………… our days have been filled with these 2 sports. But aside from being consumed with sports, I have just been feeling pretty “I don’t knowish.”  I know you are probably thinking wow, Sandy is so profound and expresses herself so…

The ABC’s of our life……

A = Alzheimer’s, an unexpected diagnosis of Early Onset Alz for my 47 year old husband. B = Baseball dominates our life these days!  Tyler is playing varsity baseball for our local high school.  It’s been so fun and exciting to watch him play.  He’s off to a great start so far this season, he…
