So, y'all know I am not a "regular" Sparker, but I know some of you like to keep up with me, and I with you. So, I thought I would write a little blog. I have recently started driving for Uber, as I was not getting enough hours at work. D... Read more
Blogging for the sake of blogging

Not really sure what I want to say, but I am sure words will come. This week has been a struggle, as I was only scheduled to work one day this week. Next week I have 4 days on the schedule. The joy of PRN (as needed) work. So, what have ... Read more
Traveling Again
Saturday, July 27, 2019      7 comments

This may be a short blog. I am waiting for my daughter to arrive. We will be taking her vehicle (I don't know which one as she and her husband have a surplus) to Lincoln for the "local" memorial service. If you read ONEKIDSMOM's blog, you... Read more
Day at home.
Tuesday, July 23, 2019      12 comments

So, got home early Monday morning, then went to work on a little over 4 hours of sleep. I did close my eyes on the flight from Chicago to Fargo, but don't know if I actually slept. I was delighted that with my "wait" time at the airports to fi... Read more
At a loss
Sunday, July 21, 2019      15 comments

I am at a loss for what to do. You see, my plane yesterday got delayed to the point that I would miss my connecting flight back to Fargo. So, now I have an extra day in Rochester with my niece. Not sure what to do about that. I am fairly cer... Read more

Through one long day in memory of my brother. He had such a supportive community. The owner of the running store who sponsored the race held a memorial run in the area where he ran countless miles, ran hills, ran with friends and team mates. ... Read more
Memorial Services
Thursday, July 18, 2019      9 comments

Today, memorial services were held for my brother Kevin at his home church in Pittsford NY. His running team Genesee Valley Harriers wore their shirts (which are burgundy) to show solidarity with him. So many stories, hugs, handshakes, condole... Read more
Putting the pieces together

Initially, I understood that Kevin had collapsed during the race. From the multiple accounts shared of social media from his running friends, I have pieced together that he realized something was wrong, and sought help around mile 11. Several ... Read more
You never know

I got a call today. My sister asked me if I was home. I was not. Then she asked if my husband was with me and if I was around people. Then the words hit me like a Mac Truck. Kevin is dead. You see, Kevin is my brother. He is 10 years olde... Read more

I resisted for a long time. I have a very good friend who told me I should play. I made fun of her and told her it was silly. But, with my kids just a little over an hour away, I decided to install the app on my phone and start playing. Now ... Read more
Return for more
Thursday, June 27, 2019      8 comments

When we initially moved, we had to leave some things behind because everything didn't fit in the U-Haul truck. We have a wedding to attend this weekend, so we will be doing "round 2" and bringing a second (although smaller) U-Haul of stuff back... Read more
Getting settled
Monday, June 17, 2019      9 comments

Well, the move did not go as smoothly as hoped (does it ever?) We ended up renting a storage unit in Lincoln as we could not fit all the "stuff" from both homes into a 20' U-Haul truck. It was 94 degrees in Lincoln when we loaded the truck (tha... Read more

So, it is really going to happen! I will be moving to North Dakota the first of June. I don't know whether to be excited or terrified. In early April, I was offered a position in my field in Fargo ND. My two older children live in Grand Fork... Read more
Life is what happens when you're making other plans (or something like that)
Thursday, August 02, 2018      10 comments

So, I haven't really been on Sparkpeople for a long time. I was curious about what was going on with some folks that I had been in regular contact with when I was active here, so have lurked here and there to see how folks are progressing. ... Read more
Jumbled life
Wednesday, December 16, 2015      16 comments

Today, I feel like I can breathe. Yesterday was a scheduled "day off" but I had two appointments, and Ben did not go to school on time. He decided that it was convenient to go to school at 10:00. Of course, the expectation was that I would gi... Read more
