Stretch is a very good word.  One I could take to heart myself.  Never hurts to stretch and try new things!
Last year on The Spin Cycle we bloggers chose a single word for our year.  Click here to see my process if you would like.  The word was refresh and I accomplished all of the goal except a small amount of the book(s).  Actual...

I am anxious to try some of the new toys my husband has given me.  Hope you have a great new year.

Not recently, but as a kid and the odd one out, after Sunday school and the activities of the mean girls, I was very happy church was over.

Our church did not offer Sunday school.  Guess we should have visited a different church across town.

Lovely picture.  Santa used to put in am appearance at my husband's family Christmas party.  Not so much recently, but the tradition might have to be revived.
In 2000 one of my three year old great nephews had quite the night before Christmas.  Garrett was full of anticipation of the big man in the red suit.  His dreams had been so vivid he was certain all events had really happene...

My sister arranged this.  We always gather at her home.  She had even made sure there were gifts for Santa to give each child.  Even my Mom and Aunt Opal enjoyed  the visit.

No staycation here.  But we are really looking forward to warmer weather for camping.
Did you hear the calendar and stars say it is springtime?  Do not believe me, check out the neighborhood street.   Yes, those are potholes.  When our car's alignment is out of whack the neighborhood streets turn into a fun ...

Vandy, I hear you on the warmer weather.  Wishing us both lots of sunshine and above freezing temperatures. You must think Chicagoans are weather wimps when we complain about 80 inches of snow.

We have a seven month old puppy that can send us all into gales of laughter when he chases his tail around and around.  Sometimes he catches and then looks confused as to what he's supposed to do then.
What did you get caught up in this week? A snow storm? A wind storm? The storm of Life? What spiral of activity did you encounter? Laundry with no end? A backed up stool? A baby that was ill? Did you feel you w...

Yep, breathing is necessary.  Taking a moment to breathe, especially when things get crazy can really help you survive those nutty moments!
Just like Sesame Street has a word of the day; in Crazyville we have a word of the year. Thanks to a writing prompt from the Spin Cycle here is my word for 2015 - Breath. A simple movement of muscles, yet vital to every aspec...

Vandy, crazy moments define motherhood. Right?

It's tough when the four footed family members won't eat.  We have been having to tempt ours to eat too.  I hope Rocky starts eating better soon.
I'm linking up this week with Lemon Drop Pie - Your Spin Cycle. The prompt for this week is: Observe your usual day and write us a post about it. Sunday, October 19, 2014 went something like this: Woke up about 4:30, hot, th...

We found out at the ultrasound and with the first one I had no clue going in, but was happy with the boy we were told he would be.  With Number two, we again found out at the ultrasound and never were two parents more relieved to find out he was a boy. No real surprises there.
I had been at this junction before.  All of my children had been evicted from the womb and child number three was no exception. Throughout the entire pregnancy everyone from my parents to the letter carrier predicted the gend...

I am sure your second boy had other surprises in store for you and your husband!  My second tests all my patience.

I had a great aunt that never wore a bra, but she sported a corset for years and she had a formidable chest.  I have fond memories of her. She did teach me that you face aging with grace and humor--it goes much better that way.
This weeks Spin Cycle challenge is Aging.  Ninety percent of my posts have some sort of reference to this particular subject cause I am 67 years old.  My Hubby is 73, his Mom who passed away last fall was 99 and my Mom is on ...

There is always something more to do when you own a house. I have no desire to build a house though.  Easier to fix up one already built.
Hubby standing next to 'fireplace', spring 1969 Our first home was really our own from the ground up.  We bought the land, about 2 acres in a development in the country, within the first year we were married.  It was 7 mile...

One all the way through, one with several major remodels, one built ready to pick colors of paint, fixtures, floorcovering and woodwork.  All have challenges!

Blanket forts are standard cabin fever busters around these parts--but we are more used to being stuck indoors in the winter--due to snow usually. Wyoming is like that.
This week's writing prompt from the blogging mavens at Spin Cycle asked for my definition of vortex. In Crazyville the dreaded Polar Vortex visited twice this month. The weather phenomenon resulted in six days of no school. F...

I will admit, I am a weather wimp.  Being stuck inside for days is tough on my psych.  People complain when the streets are not cleared of snow by 9 a.m.  Me?  Just let me throw the car into reverse and watch out!
