I changed it to Sarah’s Attic Of Treasures on August 15, 2015.

I share everything I like there.
There are Foods Boards for anything and everything…….
The one thing I don’t post much of is deserts and baking. There are some but not a a lot.
A Wide Range of Topics.
I am not into fashion and I really don’t posts many DIY projects.
Quotes and photos
Homes, Bathrooms, Kitchens, Cabins, Barns ……..
Libraries, Dens, Book Nooks and Books
Mountains and beaches.
Places I have been. Places I Dream of.
I have a section just for Sarah’s Attic Of Treasures.
I post Angel Moms and Dads quotes.
There is a board for Bobby. One for Danny. Danny and I….

It is worth checking out.
Mom, I Do Remember.
Leave it to me to mess something up. LOL I tried to post ONE picture from the post.
I love you Mom. I remember everything. And Bobby, I now you do as Well.
1.I wrote this On November 22, 2013 On a blog I started back then. Somehow I couldn’t find it so I started a new one. https://sarahkasch.wordpress.com/2013/11/22/where-do-i-start/
Where do I start?
I’ve wanted to start a blog for a long time now. In fact, Somewhere, out there is at least one I started.
If you want perfect grammar, spelling and punctuation then you have definitely come to the wrong place.
In high school and college I was an English Major. I could write about almost anything. The words just flowed. Now as I turn 55 years old I am limited to what I can write and how I can write it.
My brain is often foggy. The words just don’t come and when they do they may not be the right ones.
There is a lot I want to say about myself.
I’ll be sharing my life, past and present.
I’ll be sharing my life here in Florida. The life I never thought I would be living. If someone would have told me I’d ever leave Colorado for Florida, I would have said they were crazy. Me, Living in Florida…..H… No. Never. Ever.
You know what they say about the word NEVER.
I will also be sharing Bobby.
My son. My only child.
I am an angel mom.
I am a wife.
I am forever changing.https://sarahkasch.wordpress.com/2013/11/22/where-do-i-start/
From Sarah: Here’s Number 2.
Fumbling Around Here
I am fumbling around here. I read other people’s blogs and wonder how they got there start. How did they figure everything out?
I remember first getting on FACEBOOK. A friend my hubby worked with at the time wanted me to connect there. To be her “Friend”. I really wasn’t sure what I was getting into.
I soon learned FB was a fun place to be. I had a lot to learn. For one thing, Everyone kept making Hearts using ❤. Easy enough.
Not for me. I just couldn’t get it right.
I’d hit< the #. I’d hit < then a space then 3.
I did it over and over.
I was told to just Copy and Paste?
Time to laugh here.
I had no idea how to C/P.
I never learned to type. I still peck away. Faster. Thank heavens for Spell Check.
Do you get the picture?

Still Fumbling Around And More Confused Than Ever…
The more I look around the more confused I get. I know what a Gravatar Is but what is a Gravatar Blog and how did I get one on Word Press? Is my blog private or Public now? I have trouble finding the home page. Or seeing the posts like everyone does.
So many questions and the more I read the more confused I am.
I love how you can change the background.
The one I have is of our Cow Camp at Lake Kissimmee State Park. I will probably be changing it a lot. We have a beautiful piece of heaven on earth here and I love to show it off.
At least I can write a simple post. LOL

Part 2 Of Fumbling Around Here.
I mentioned I was trying to figure things out.
I lost the first draft of this because I didn’t save it.
So now I am saving in sections. I need to figure out how to do one message…..saving while I go.
One thing you will learn very quickly, if you haven’t already.
I make lost of mistakes. In spelling, writing, grammar and punctuation. I also have trouble coming up with the words I want to say.
It’s very frustrating for me.
I was an English Major. I got A’s. I was good. Really good at expressing what I wanted to say.
I wrote short stories and sometimes got them published.
Then I had MIGRAINES For 2 years. Constantly. If I didn’t have a HEADACHE (The wanting to scream kind), I had the stomach problems that come after taking all the medicines.
It was a bad time.
I have other problems as well.
So if you expect perfection……This is not for you.
I WILL RAMBLE.
To get back to the original topic…..I had a lot to learn. I still have a lot to learn.
SO please bear with me.

Danny’s Hospital Stay
No one should have to spend time in the hospital, yet at one time or another we all do. It is never convenient and we can never afford it.
Danny ended up in the hospital the week before Christmas. He was really sick.
We were praying he’d get out for Christmas Eve. Praying even more that everything would be alright.
God answered our prayers. He will be fine. He got home Around NOON Christmas Eve. Not the best Christmas and It won’t be the best NEW YEARS EVE/DAY but we are thankful to just be together.
From Sarah: Wednesday Early AM.
I posted a few reposts from other blogs on it as well but I won’t share those here.
Not really sure why I couldn’t access the first account. Months had gone by yet, I still had the name and password.
Today, somehow…..I found it in an old file. Then when I went to open this BLOG I couldn’t get on it.
Too many email accounts and passwords for AMYONE To HAVE.
Whew! What a hard time I had. Once again, trying to change and update here. It literally took all afternoon and I really didn’t change or add much. I just couldn’t get the pages right.
Last week I changed the theme.
I miss some of the features and things from the others I have tried.
Yet, I like how this one looks when you get on it.
It looks better even though I miss all the other STUFF.
Tabs for FB and Twitter. Blogs. Likes. On and O.
Most of all I missed the TAGLINE after Sarah’s Attic Of Treasure’s and Our Neck of The Woods.
So I added it as a page.
Today. When I finally figured everything out. (I hope I did anyway.)
I kept the About Me Page…. with the Am I Debbie or Sarah post.
I redid the Our Neck Of The Woods Page. I added MORE.
What is LKSP? RMR? CCSP? Money Tree?
Where do we live?
I never realized until lately how much work you all do when you BLOG.
Kudos to each of you.
My Name. Is it Sarah or Debbie?
My name. Sarah or Debbie? If you ask my mom, She will say Debbie.
If you ask Danny or anyone here in Florida, I am definitely Sarah.
I even had the pastor include the name, Sarah, along with Debra Sue, in our wedding ceremony.
If you would have asked Bobby: All of his life, except for one time, he introduced me as Debbie, his mom. The one exception, when he met Danny. For some unknown reason, when he met Danny, Bobby told him to call me Sarah. He met Danny here in Florida on vacation. They got to be good friends even though Danny was my age. (Well, 4 years YOUNGER). So Danny has ALWAYS called me Sarah. ALWAYS. I am never Debbie to him. Not teasingly, not in anger, not at all.
I am Debra Sue Kasch. That is the name I was born with. I love the name and am very proud of it. I kept the Kasch for most things after I married Danny. At Danny’s request. The Kasch name died with Bobby. Or at least our link to the Kasch name died. So in honor of Bobby. In honor of my father, grandfather and all the Kasch’s before I still use Kasch except for legal stuff etc. As a child, I was called Debbie, Debbie Sue, Or Deb. My family and close family friends still am called that.
Classmate call me both. Growing up there were so many Debra’s, Deborah’s, Debbie and Debbie Sue’s. In high School there were over 20 of us. One day in fun, my best friend, Dan (different one of course) jokingly asked me what I wanted my first child to be named if it was a girl. I said Sarah Elizabeth. Or Rebecca Lee. So he started Calling me Sarah.
It caught on quickly and before I knew it I was being called Sarah by almost everyone I came in contact with. It just clicked with everyone.
I will never forget the look on my mom’s face when Dan was visiting us and he called me Sarah for the first time, in her hearing. OUCH!
She is never quiet if she has an opinion. Mom had one and let it be known that I was NOT SARAH but Debra Sue or Debbie . You get the picture?
I can still hear her say that. I remember my sister calling me that once. Another OUCH. That’s how I always thought of Mom’s words. OUCH. Like a burn. For the most part, no one called me Sarah, around my mom for many years…. To Dan’s wife and kids I was called both. Interchanging. Aunt Debbie. Aunt Sarah. Still Am. When I got on FB, It was 3 years after Bobby died. My personal site was Debbie-Sarah Kasch. I still have that one. I needed both names so people could find me.
When I met the Angel Mom’s I was Bobby’s MOM Debbie…….. Yet, here in Florida, I am Sarah.
They never knew Bobby.
Yes, It is confusing at times.
I was quieter then and didn’t post much. Imagine that? I certainly didn’t share myself or Danny to the world like I do now. I didn’t want to share Bobby with everyone. SO I stayed quiet for awhile. I reconnected with my classmates from High School. I added friends I’d known all my life. I added my friends here in Florida. Some continued to call me Debbie. Others called me Sarah. It took a few people awhile to realize I went by 2 different names. They thought I was 2 different people. I started getting questions. The angel moms for the most part are the ones who went from calling me Debbie, to Sarah, when I started sharing Our life here. When I started sharing Our Neck Of The Woods, (A page just for the Lake Kissimmee State Park, Rolling Meadows and life in Florida. History. Our Life), they started calling me Sarah more and more. I called myself Sarah. I can’t explain it better than that. I answer to either.
The name I miss most is MOM.
I never get called that any more. At least not very often. When I do it’s Dan’s kids or an old friend of Bobby’s.
Now about the pages:
Sarah’s Attic of Treasures and Debbie’s Attic of Treasures are the same except for the name. Exactly.
I have Our Neck of the Woods about Danny and I and our Park Life.
I have Sarah’s Life: What Was . Was is . What Will be. It’s about Life in Illinois, Colorado. Bobby, Danny and I. Mainly Bobby and I. It’s very small. Mainly for me.
I have Bobby’s Memorials. I also have a page called Getting To Know My Friends Through Our Children. It’s a page for grieving parents, grandparents. Etc.
Sarah Sue is the account I use for Sarah’s Attic Of Treasures and all of my pages, except The memorials.
It’s a fun account. It’s where I like to hide.
