You’re Welcome, Future Self

Today has been all about doing things for my Future Self. Way too often I put off things, thinking that "later" will be better.  Or, at the very least, okay.  Like waiting to fill my vehicle up with gas.  Or to put away the clothes.  Or hooking devices up to charge.  Moving laundry from the washer… Continue reading You’re Welcome, Future Self

It Won’t Always Be This Way

This morning after I finished up with what I had to do at my desk, I turned around to attack the job of tidying up around the house--something that has severely suffered with our pitiful sneezing and worn out from colds selves. And I saw this. Sigh.  Why am I the only one who can fold a… Continue reading It Won’t Always Be This Way

Staring Disappointment in the Face

The past few weeks our Princess has been working toward a goal.  A goal she set for herself.  She wanted to make the swim team.  She's worked hard and practiced, but I just didn't know if it would be enough this time around.  She can try again throughout the year or wait until next summer and… Continue reading Staring Disappointment in the Face

Feeling Sanctimonious Around Here

So after waking up in the wee hours of the morning to hear the cats frolicking outside as they do, I fell back asleep.  I knew things were headed south with the condition of my nose and the passages therein.  I woke up enough to tell my oldest goodbye as she headed off to work. … Continue reading Feeling Sanctimonious Around Here

Christmas a Hundred Years Before

There's been a lot of talk today about Christmas in July, so it brought back one of my favorite Christmas memories. In December 1989 a friend came home with me from college well before Christmas.  One morning we were awakened by the sound of jingle bells jingling.  Mama and Daddy had looks of surprise on their… Continue reading Christmas a Hundred Years Before

Running Lines

This evening as I was doing the "finishing up the day" tasks, I was running back over lines from today.  And giggling.  And that's a good thing.  Laughter over misread words and losing track of time and general silliness--I'll take it. This morning the littles and I were out together.  Cooter, my little guy, was… Continue reading Running Lines

Take Out and Help Yourself…..

Today as I was cooking a big noon-time dinner, I thought about my great Granddaddy Holder.  He was my Mama's granddaddy, and we all loved him dearly.  He lived in a house on a slight incline, so when we drove down their road we were looking up at the steps up to their screened-in front porch. … Continue reading Take Out and Help Yourself…..

The One Thing I Don’t Want to Be…..Especially on Sundays

Another Sunday. Today is the third Sunday since we have stopped serving meals on Sunday nights at Daybreak, the day shelter for folks in need up in Macon.  I hear that our friends are doing well at the other places that serve, and for that I am thankful. My Sundays look very different now.  Actually… Continue reading The One Thing I Don’t Want to Be…..Especially on Sundays
