Home Sick

I have been travelling for the last week.  I came down to Kansas City, Missouri last week for Camex.  I was supposed to leave Thursday morning, but had to leave Wednesday afternoon to beat a snow storm.  I didn’t even get to say goodbye to the kids.  My goodbye was very quick for Robert.  I’ve […]



New Places

I took the kids to the library this morning.  It was the first time I had taken Warren.  Laura hadn’t been there in a long time.  The last time I took her she threw a fit because she couldn’t stay and play with the toys.  This time went much better.  We made it for LEGO […]



Another Good Day

Today was another good day for me.  Warren had a follow-up appointment with the ped. urologist.  Robert just took the day off so he could be at the appointment and have a day with us.  The appointment went well.  The cream worked, but the foreskin is still a bit tight.  We aren’t going to continue […]



Favorite TV Shows

I have a few shows that I can list as favorites.  Here they are in no particular order: Body of Proof Amazing Race Biggest Loser NCIS How I Met Your Mother Leverage I love each of these shows for various reasons.  The Biggest Loser is what motivates me with my weight loss.  Amazing Race is […]



Still kickin’

I’m still kickin’.  Some days are better than others for me.  This past week has been a blur.  Thursday morning we stopped at the chiropractor to get both kids adjusted.  It seems to be making a difference for both of them.  After the adjustments we were on the road to Milwaukee with a stop in […]



A Much Needed Day

Today was very much needed.  In the interest of full disclosure, I wasn’t looking forward to it yesterday.  I was still feeling pretty miserable and wasn’t sure how I would be feeling.  It is hard enough to take care of kids when you are sick.  Add in a sick little boy, and today wasn’t looking […]



Weekend Away

This past weekend I was able to get away… overnight even! I ended up leaving my house around 6:00. It was a good thing I didn’t leave any later either. We were getting a bit of a snowstorm and the roads were not pretty. Any later and I probably wouldn’t have made it. As it […]



Thanksgiving 2010

Thanksgiving this year was good.  We went up to Dallas for Thanksgiving dinner.  It was nice to see everyone.  It’s been a while since the entire family was together.  The kids did really well.  By 1:30 or so the kids were beyond ready for a nap.  We loaded up the kids and headed down to […]



10 Years

On Sunday I celebrated being cancer free for 10 years.  It is amazing how far I have come in those years.  I now have a great husband, two awesome kids, and am in decent health and working on improving that. I bet you are getting tired about hearing about my Atkins experience, but I am […]




I was able to get some closure today.  It was Bennet’s funeral this morning.  Ever since we arrived last night, the Rust family has accepted us in.  While we are family, we are the great nephew with the wife who married into the family.  Not all families would be so welcoming to the extended family […]
