It took two 28 foot trucks, 4 movers and several pick up truck loads to get all of our “stuff” into the new house!  Holy Moly, did we ever have a lot of stuff!  Maybe we have too much stuff. Continue reading “Settling, Simplicity and Stuff”

Thoughts on Being Sick

I think the worst thing about being sick when you’re a woman is…being a woman.  People just expect you to continue on like you’re not sick.  Men, on the other hand, get to actually be sick and have some type of recovery time.

Santa’s Day of Rest

I picture Santa (wink, wink) waking up after a long night of work, relaxing with a hot cup of coffee before he hits it hard again for the next year.

Merry Christmas and God Bless to all of you!
