My Road Trip To Illinois Has Begun/Part 1

My Road Trip To Illinois My trip  actually began around 10 PM. I was amazed how relaxed  I was tonight.  All day, in fact. I had the house picked up. Vacuumed. Laundry : Washed, Dried And put away. Dishes washed and put away. I was packed by midafternoon. I amazed myself and actually got unpacked…

My Birthday Part 2 /Plus My Memories Of Past Birthdays

Danny was wonderful for most of my birthday. As I mentioned in Part 1, I woke up on Wednesday in a bad mood. It didn’t help that it was gloomy outside. Dark And Cloudy. Humid. I had trouble shaking off “The MOOD”. I knew a lot of it was because I was missing my dad….

Way Too Early To Start My Day /Sarah’s Ramblings

Way Too Early To Start My Day It’s December 12th. Danny’s alarm has been going off for almost 30 minutes. I hate alarms anyway so I really can’t stand “SNOOZE”. It makes no sense to me whatsoever. I got up as soon as the alarm went off the first time. I need to get Danny…

Quieting Your Heart For The Holidays/ Update from Sarah On Week 1 And Life In Our Neck Of The Woods/ Week 2 / By Time Warp Wife

From Sarah :
I am starting this wonderful study today. I wasn’t prepared for it when Advent started last week. I could blame it on the fact we were in Plant City until Tuesday of the first week. I had plenty of time to get ready for it here. I could have shared the first week on time but I chose family (In my case , Danny) and held off. Lighting Advent candles at a B & B could have been done. We had the whole house to ourselves. I still chose not to. I wasn’t ready (in my heart ) to begin.
My HEART WASN’T QUIET.
MY HEART hasn’t been QUIET in a very long time.
I was praying that our mini- vacation would bring us closer and in a way it did. Yet, NOT IN THE WAYS I NEEDED IT TO.

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things {And Places}/ By Sarah

My Favorite Things – Julie Andrews – YouTube I Admit: I love “The Sound Of Music”.I love everything about it. My aunt took me to see the movie when it first came out.I learned the words to every song and couldn’t stop singing it. Trouble was : I can’t SING. Bobby use to watch it…

Goodbye October: Hello November

Hello From Lake Kissimmee State Park And Rolling Meadows Ranch I have a question: Fall, where are you?????????? It’s been in the upper 80’s. A few days ago it was 89 degrees outside. That my friends is not AUTUMN. No ways near it. I have had trouble finding things to be thankful for this year….

Another Friday Night in Our Neck Of The Woods: July, 10, 2015

Good evening from Our Neck of The Woods and Rolling Meadows Ranch. (The Picture above: Danny was working on the electric gate after hours. It’s park related and should be done on the clock. It is way to hot to be working at our ENTRANCE when he first comes home. Way too hot and SUNNY…

My Emotional Rollercoaster.

Overwhelmed, Frustrated, Angry, Hurt, Upset And Always Emotional. Today started off like so many other days when Danny is off and we have doctor’s appointments. Danny’s alarm went off about an hour before we NEEDED to get up. Then he did the “SNOOZE” thing for the next hour. I will never understand “SNOOZE”. I am…

Today in Our Neck Of The Woods- June 16, 2015

WHEW! I am so tired but for once it is a good tired. Good because I am tired from DOING something, physical. Yesterday I wrote how Danny and I were getting back to NORMAL . (Normal for us anyway- we will NEVER be considered normal to MOST people we know- we actually like each other…

Monday, June 15, 2015 : Back To Normal Here Once Again.

What does NORMAL for us mean? Danny went back to the Early Field Shift this morning. He’d had his normal week of Late Field , plus most of a second week of it and then he was off this past week. So we got to sleep in and stay up really late. Into the wee…

It’s June…..Thank Goodness

Happy June 1, May was NOT a good month so I am glad it’s over. Danny and I had a very relaxing weekend OFF. We went grocery shopping Sunday and watched NASCAR. we watered and watered and watered some more. It’s been hot and dry. Yet, the park is still flooded in places. We are…

Wednesday, May 27, 2015 : I Feel Better.

I am up. That is a good thing. I feel lousy but considering how bad I have felt for the past few weeks, I am good. I may live yet…..LOL. That was my attempt at humor. Hey, I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON. EVER. I don’t suppose the dishes and the vacuuming could just magically…
