I’m a Mémé! Otherwise known as a grandmother :-) My baby girl had a baby girl on Sunday, September 11. Little Esther is absolutely beautiful, of course — she looks a lot like her mother did as an infant. Both Momma and baby are healthy. I’m fortunate enough to be in Omaha with them for […]
I’ve updated the article on our card system and added a Word document that has blank task cards, to help people make their own cards. That has been requested by several different people over time, and I finally found the original Word document, which made it easier to do so. I’m considering further updates to that […]
1) My Daddy, and his (ongoing) recovery from surgery. 2) Everything I learned about music from J.D. Mardis and all the other teachers over the years. 3) Easy access to a pool.
When someone asks, “Is (X place) accessible?” the answer is “no” if there are any stairs involved in getting there. It doesn’t matter if everything inside X is on one level but there are three “little” steps at the front door, or “just one flight of stairs out front.” Those “little” steps aren’t so little […]
The NaBloPoMo prompt for today: What is the first thing you see when you walk in your house? Right now, the first thing anybody sees is Sam’s desk. No, that isn’t precisely right. If you’re looking straight ahead at the wall, you see a collage by Katie, which is much lovelier.
The NaBloPoMo prompt for today: How do you feel when you return home at the end of the day? I’m not sure I should have answered this one, as I doubt that my answer will be in sync with the intent of the question. I don’t leave home every day to go to work, or leave home […]
It has to be fall cleaning because it’s September, right? I haven’t done spring cleaning at any time since we’ve lived in this house, honestly. I haven’t been able to do it. But between a new pain specialist who isn’t all the way on the other side of metro Atlanta (who actually listens to me […]
Apparently, the filter for the unit is missing, and the coils need to be cleaned. There’s no obvious sign of mold/mildew, but Sam says that fresh air is coming into the bedroom via the unit, and our neighbors on that side have been burning something in their backyard. I found the website for the manufacturer, […]
More specifically (I hope), something in it. Not Sam, happily, but every time I go in there, I’m all stuffed up within a few minutes. We keep that room closed and have a window a/c unit in there because the house a/c just doesn’t keep up so well. I’m wondering if there’s something about the […]
The good news: we’re finally done with the water boiling! It’s a good thing, too. The stores are all out of bottled water. The bad news: the girl has a nasty migraine :-( She was supposed to leave Friday afternoon for the weekend, and it looks like that may not happen. I hope she doesn’t have […]
