untitled (at this point)

today is an amazing day … two of the most wonderful people decided to get married and have children … and on this day many (many) years ago, I was born … it was a Tuesday … about 4:40 in the afternoon … no I don’t remember it, but there are many wonderful people who I keep in contact with that do remember … thanks for sharing your memories with me all these years!

and thanks mom and dad for giving me life and teaching me how to love and live and enjoy this amazing beautiful world!

“to believe in God for me is to feel that there is a God … who with irresistible force urges us towards more loving”
- Vincent van Gogh -

I started writing this post over the weekend, but didn’t get far – another weekend is almost upon us, but I still want to share what I wrote on Sunday …

it’s late Father’s Day and I’m printing a few photos for friends – the rain is falling outside my office window – both boys are asleep – and the house is (finally) quiet – a beautiful end to an amazing weekend


this is what part of the house looked like the other day – roof replacement in the beginning – the guys worked fast! today it looked almost complete …

the roof is now complete – and it’s gorgeous!
and the sun is shining
and the birds are singing
and my kids are down the street playing with friends
and I’m blessed and thankful
and I found my camera … again

seriously thinking

do I have what it takes?

IMG_3621 (2)

do I have what it takes to hold these hands in my hand and lead them through this amazing journey called life?  as a parent, I think we worry about things too much sometimes … kids are much more strong and resilient than we give them credit for … remember when you were little?  weren’t you smarter than your parents?  I thought I was at times Smile

self-defeating thoughts creep into my mind time and time again because I don’t have their dad to bounce my thoughts off of any more … he’s not here to remind me that everything will be okay … that we’re going to be just fine … Alan was real good at not only keeping me on track, but being real … and giving me that little boost of encouragement I needed now and then

yesterday marked 16 months … and before I realized that anniversary, I went through a period of complete frustration and anger … releasing tension now and then is healthy … crying is very therapeutic … but confusion and emotion together are not good … I have mastered the combination of those two over the years …

so today is a new day – another opportunity to learn more and be better and smarter and make good choices despite what happened yesterday

make it the best day of your life!

boat for sale

looking for a boat for the summer???  boy do I have a deal for you!  take a look at my post on craigslist: 

Boat For Sale

while I don’t really want to sell this, we don’t use it – someone else needs to enjoy it because it really is a great boat – and there are so many places this boat can go!  fishing on the ocean, on the river, clam-digging on the beach, hunting up river …

my first post

Today is a new day - and of course I have many thoughts and ideas running through my head!  I am after all a woman ... my mind never ever stops.

This is a new blog - a place where I'll share random krazy thoughts - a place where I analyze and think out loud and share my opinions whether you want them or not. 

Read at your own risk. 
This is me. 
Plain and simple. 
Sometimes a deep thinker, sometimes not.

I hope you'll come back some time ... until then, I hope you make it a great day!!
