24 years ago part 2   Leave a comment

more on Chris’s birth —   So then we knew we were staying.  Roger sacked out on the pull-out couch and napped for the earlier part of my labor, during which I was able to sit in the rocker for a while, recording some things in my baby book, and walk to the nursery and […]

About hearing aids…   Leave a comment

I just recently got a second hearing aid, after having one left hearing aid since 2006 and wearing it haphazardly.  My hearing loss is less severe – mostly in my left ear, but some in my right.  Ryan’s is second least severe, with his having more loss in each ear than I.  He has refused […]

18 years ago —   Leave a comment

With Colleen’s birthday coming up on Tuesday I felt like posting some publishable parts of my old diary, from 5-12-94. Hard to believe it’s been 18 years. Work told me I’m definitely getting my three-week vacation pay, three-week sick leave, and they want me to do tapes at home. I also may be able to […]

Teaching Enjoyment   2 comments

Ahh, so many ways to look at that. I thought of that title the other day while trying to help Chris with some things. And as my mind will play with words I realized there were two ways to look at that. The first way is how when trying to plan events with Chris, I […]

17 years ago – Colleen’s birth   Leave a comment

  Yes, another birthday today!  Amazing how fast it all goes.   Was just reviewing some entries from my journal from back then – actually 5-12-94:   “First things first, I’m 2 cm dilated (as of last Friday) and am working only one more week.  I’m ready to enjoy this summer off with my children.  […]

Transition to spring —   Leave a comment

  The Snowmen (NOT CHRISTMAS, MOM! lol – she put the Christmas bow with them – “that’s not right,” as Ryan would say).  They are ready to go to the attic, all condensed and ready for their box as soon as I get it packed (Monday?)  Still have two lone snowmen decs on the mantle […]

Guilty again!   Leave a comment

    Yes, I’m guilty again, of not posting because: I don’t have time. I don’t have anything new to say. What I’m interested in saying really won’t interest anyone. That is really ridiculous, though, as even if no one else reads this, I read it.  I do go back and look at these from […]
