Some of the words on my posts are insignificant, space-filling drivel. Once in a while I share some heart felt messages. Rarely to I chime in about current events.
Today I want to give kudos to one of my favorite bloggers here on OS.
We all know him as the… Read full post »
I joined a writer's group about a year ago. We meet every other Friday afternoon in our small town library. During this past year three of our group have finished at least one or more books and have self-published them.
I was so excited for them, then in awe, then jealous,… Read full post »
Ok, I know sleeping is a relative term when it comes to babies.
We 've had the honor of keeping our beautiful 16 month granddaught… Read full post »
I've had a troubling spring. I sat around feeling sorry for myself for months and months.
My beloved daughter lost a baby after carrying him for six months. We were all very very sad, but in a weird way it's brought us back together.
She has let me back into… Read full post »
Well, hello Open Salon! I'm here! I'm back! I thought maybe they'd deleted my spot since I've been gone so long.
I've been busy! I am almost through with my first childrens book. I can't wait to get it over with so I can move on to the next project.… Read full post »
In January of 2010 my son's Marine unit was deployed to Afghanistan. In February of that same year this unit found out what real war is all about.
They were assigned to the "Marjah push". This involved taking back a small village in the southern region of Afghanistan from the Talliban.… Read full post »
I am so happy to call you my son. Today marks 24 years of a wonderful, love filled life with you. You have always made me laugh, even when you were a little kid. You asked the funniest questions, you made up your own language and never blinked when… Read full post »
I've been gone, trying on my big girl pants. I found out they don't fit.
I need to come back to the security of os and my old friends and my safety net.
I was trying out a new outfit, one where if you don't have the credentials of the… Read full post »
So I just wanted to stop by and let you all know I have a new grandbab… Read full post »
If I disappeared and never came back
Would the earth stop spinning?
Would the foundations crack?
If I took some time without saying goodbye
Would they notice?
Would anyone cry?
If I never, ever called them ever again
Would they figure out what they mean to me?
Would they… Read full post »
Once again, I've been gone. I wrote a nice little post about my son and his new bride last Summer. Then, just as I thought I may get back to something that represents normal....This happens.
So, I guess I've been gone for about two months now. I don't have a note from my mom, or a doctor or anyone for that matter. I have just been dealing with life.
I have a sweet friend here on OS that messaged me to make sure I was… Read full post »
I've let the dark demon in.
What a difference a year makes. Last year I was struggling through my son's deployment, praying that he would return from war unscathed and live to see another birthday.
So here it is another birthday for my only son, my baby, my little boy. He is ok. I know he seems… Read full post »
Even though the rapture didn't happen, there are a few things that made me stop and think. Aside from all of the jokes, at least it got people to consider what happens after this life.
Every once in a while something happens that makes us, the human race, consider that… Read full post »
Hi there, it's me... Your mom, you know the one who carried you for nine months in my belly? Then carried you for another year until you could walk? Yeah, that's me.
I'm the one you cried for at night, I'm the one who held your… Read full post »
My home is strategically placed in between two of the top contenders for Barker of the year. Each contestant practices both late at night and early in the morning. Sometimes, (whenever I need to take a nap) practice is held during the middle of the day.
I have to say… Read full post »
I've been absent again. I'm so trying to adjust to being alone. It's not THAT bad, it's just a little lonely. I have no one to talk things over with, or worry with or argue with for that matter.
It's not like I've never done this before, when I went… Read full post »
I spent the last week worrying and whining that my kids would forget me on Mothers Day. What a baby! I should've been focused on MY mom instead.
I really am not sure how much longer I will have my sweet mother with me. She is in relatively good health,… Read full post »
I dreamed I was in a war and people were shooting at me. Everywhere I tried to go, they were there. I wasn't scared, just frustrated. I'm pretty sure this stims from all of the Bin Laden talk and whether to show his dead body or not.
I think… Read full post »
I was all set to start whinning about how tough life is, how my kids are ignoring me, how I feel so all along since my hubs started his new job, blaa, blaa, blaa.
Then, I opened up my morning blog and there was a new post from my friend… Read full post »
I was all set to write about how much fun I'm having trying to keep myself occupied while the hubs is away training for his new job. (I'll post that later)
I opened up our local paper on-line and a picture of a billboard was on the front page. I've seen… Read full post »
Happy Birthday to my only daughter. I miss the sweet kisses and stompy, bossy ways you had. You mo… Read full post »
Ok, so this isn't easy, I am really not that good at confessions. (At least not to people). God hears them all of the time from me.
Here goes, I've been cheating on you all. I finally gave in and signed up for facebook and twitter in the same day.… Read full post »
Hi there, it's me again. Your number one whiner here on Open. I posted a few days ago about how dire our straits were. You know, we are unemployed, can't get a job, boo hoo hoo.
Well, my hubs was offered a job. Not a perfect fit, but after a short… Read full post »
