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…

I Am Thankful For An Awesome Event And Being Able To Rest Afterwards – Day 15

I was the go to person for getting everything set up at the park.
Our volunteer co-ordinator made arrangements for the actual event. I am very glad I didn’t have to. Sometimes it is nice to be in the background getting it done and not having to be the person in the spotlight. She dealt with All the media.
Even Danny was left out of most of it.
We got the BALL rolling and worked on it for 3 years behind the scenes.
It was wonderful though for it to be acknowledged officially.

Not The Normal Way To Start The Day.

It’s almost 8:30 AM. Danny and I were out before the sun came up looking for a water leak. We knew it would be a good size one.There’d been enough time for it to come to the surface. So we started looking again. We had already spent hours yesterday looking. There are old water lines…

Tired. Oh So Tired. – Friday, August 21,2015 Happy Friday

Happy Friday. It’s just one of those days that I am TIRED. Capital letter TIRED. Feeling the heat even inside. The AC (window unit) in the kitchen is having a hard time keeping up. We usually only have it on when we are in the kitchen. And then turn it off or turn it up…

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…
