the long goodbye…we will survive

How do you even begin to say goodbye? That is a question that has been running through my mind today, as we say a final goodbye to my sister-in-law Brenda.

On bad days, I take the win where I can.

I slept last night. I still feel like hell today though. I'm just grumpy today. I have things I know I need to do, but no motivation to do them. It really doesn't help matters any that Lynn woke up with a migraine again, so I'm having to cover the store until she feels functional. … Continue reading On bad days, I take the win where I can.

The program I selected is a four year degree program done through distance learning and I will be starting it September 1. Being realistic though, I know there is slim to … Continue reading Beginning a new journey…

Regaining my equilibrium

Today was definitely a challenge, but I made it through. The hardest part of the day was running the audio/video board at the church today for a friend's funeral. On top of everything else over the last couple of days, it was tough. With where my mind is it would be way too easy to … Continue reading Regaining my equilibrium
