My Life

January 3, 2013

Sitting in the wheelchair waiting for my chariot, I realized this is it. This is my life. Um…duh. For years now, really my whole life, everything has been in a state of change. As a child, I went to grammar school for three years then middle school for three years then junior high school for three years onto high school […]

Two and a Half

December 18, 2012

I’ve described him to people as the biggest and smartest man in the world. As I got older my assessment has changed a bit, maybe because I have gotten taller or he has shrunk. Either way, he is still the smartest man in the world and one of the most special to me – my “Poppy.” I have mentioned a […]

The Glow

November 21, 2012

There have been many times I have joked that if Adam wants anymore kids, he’s going to have to learn how to get pregnant and birth these children without me! There’s no doubt that I have whined my way through each and every pregnancy. But today, in the spirit once again of Thanksgiving, I am thankful that I have been […]

Parenting is a Marathon

October 8, 2012

This past weekend one of my closest friends accomplished a very difficult goal through hard work and determination. Rachel, a.k.a. Single Gal’s Two Cents, successfully completed the Chicago Marathon. All weekend long my brain tried grasping the dedication and fortitude it took to go through with such a goal. I reminded Rachel many times how proud I am of her […]

Terrific Two!

September 12, 2012

Gabby is at that in between age. She’s a little young to start school but a little old to not be in school. So instead I decided to get her into a few classes that will allow her to exercise her desire for programming. Friday she started her class at Drew’s school. Gabby is one of those kids that doesn’t […]

10th BFBBQ

August 23, 2012

Ten years of throwing the best barbecue of the summer. The evolution of the BFBBQ has been amazing. The first year it was the party of the century. We went through eight kegs and picked up more beer. Everyone’s friends of friends of friends were in attendance. And as the years have gone by we have had some bad weather […]

You talkin’ about my kid???

July 19, 2012

My caller ID reflected the school/camp calling today. My heart went into my throat. There was a time that that number reflected news that was never good. At the end of my working days, almost everyday someone was calling me. Sometimes they would call me to tell me that Gabby was having health concerns (constantly throwing up). And other times […]

And then they lived happily ever after!!!!!!!

July 17, 2012

I, unfortunately, do not make millions and I do not provide a service only available to millionaires but I may have a better track record than the Million Dollar Matchmaker or whoever she is. It started out slowly. I had a friend, Adam had a friend, we introduced them…years later they are married with one kid and one kid on […]

Future Hall of Famer!

June 29, 2012

Earlier I blogged about how Drew took a generic sports class and his teacher told me that he was really exceptional at basketball for his age. I was so proud of him and happy for him because he has such a passion for sports. We have recently started a new chapter in his life. The world of organized league sports. […]

Runs Gone By…

May 14, 2012

In our old neighborhood, I had gone for about ten thousand runs…maybe more. I had all the different routes tracked. I could anticipate every turn, every house, and in some cases every bit of landscaping. In my years of running around our old neighborhood, I had a “go to” mix I would listen to. Today I ran in our new […]
