The week in a wrap…. 09/28/2014

This week has been a week of new challenges.

*Had a job interview.

*Drove 5.6 miles in a town of a 2 mile main street and 4 trips to the post office to get one package mailed to Jessie.

*Went to Scott’s 45th class reunion in Salina to put faces to the names I have heard many stories about!

So I interviewed with a dentist in the neighboring town and hoping to get back into the working world so I can quit following Scott around while using up all of my 26,000 daily words on him. I get the feeling this is what he sees when I talk…



The man puts up a lot with me and my incessant babbling about everything and nothing all in the same sentence. ….So a gainful employment would be a plus to our marriage. Hee hee


Drove 5.6 miles to mail a package at the post office that is 2 blocks away from home. REALLY? Yes I did clock it… It took 4 trips to accomplish it! It appears the post office in Sterling shuts down between 12:30-2:00 every afternoon. I went at 12:45. Trip #1. Went home. Fell asleep. Startled awake. Ran to the post office @ 3:15. No parking spots. Saw the barber was open ran home to let hubby (who also was sleeping) know  so that he would be lookin’ good for the reunion later that day. Trip #2. Ran back downtown to the post office. Yay! Parking spot. Grabbed debit card & package. Ran in. OPEN!! Even better.. …  debit machine down. Checkbook at home. Dang ##$%^$^&&.   Trip #3. Called hubby to bring checkbook on his way to barber. No answer. So back to the house via road (2 blocks) saw hubby in truck. He waved. $%##^^^&*. After many tries. Finally.

Nailed it!


After much consideration and deep thinking…. Ok found out there was free beer, Scott decided a quick trip to his 45th High school reunion in Salina was in order. (Not that I had for several weeks suggested we RSVP & go.) Friday evening we headed north & for Scott to see many old – ahem friends he has not had contact with in over 40 yrs. It was fun to put finally put faces to the stories I have heard over the years and watch Scott cut loose and laugh….. Laughter is good for the soul…




It was a late night on trip back but broken up by a quick run through Mickey D’s for some well deserved fries and ketchup.. Best things EVeR!

We felt young again seeing 1am on the clock coming in the door.

Saturday at 9 am … another story.   Geesh.

Signing off from our Sterling nest. Have a great rest of your weekend! See ya all next week…..





New Chapter…New Road to travel

New Chapter…New Road to travel — 09/24/2014


New chapter new road in life…Not like I haven’t started new chapters or new roads before in the last 5 decades, but I want to think and believe this chapter will be nothing like the past ones.

It is going to AWESOME!!

Believe that one? Yeah I am trying to believe it! LOL. With my new beginnings I thought a diary would be in order… So why not a public diary aka Blog…

I am not a writer, as one will soon discover when reading this blog, if anyone reads it besides me. It has taken me 3 days to get this far. HA.

My new chapter begins in Sterling. Sterling Ks. A small town in south central Kansas. Did I tell you flat Kansas? It is growing on me. The people are friendly and nice… some. Jury is out on others here. I have many wonderful friends that live in Sterling. It has been good to see them often.

Let’s begin:

A bit of background on me (I will not let all information out on the 1st entry) is that I am a 51 yr old gal who is a Christian and loves the Lord. I am like every other human out there, I make mistakes and sometimes lousy choices but by the Grace and Mercy of our Lord I am saved.

Scott, my hubby, is a very interesting man. He is hard to explain or describe. Scott is truly a –one of a kind- man. Ha ha … You will find out more later.

I have been blessed by 3 kids or I should say 3 young adults. It is terribly difficult for me to believe they are grown. Jessie, Carlie & Billy are the light or pain of my existence….depends on what day you ask me!!

Did I happen to mention I have found as I have gotten older I have become more vocal on everything? I call it Honesty some may call it something else. Oh well everyone is entitled to their opinion. On that note, if I offend someone it is not my intention to hurt one but to verbalize my thoughts with honesty….. Lol.   One day my filter may kick in and work.. but not holding my breath.

I sit at my computer and can see the sun set from my desk. It is gorgeous. Someday I may even take a picture of it. Ha. I have had a wonderful day of catching up on things that need to be done around the ole homestead, a glass of wine at noon, a nap mid afternoon (due to wine) and a quiet late afternoon. Contemplating on tomorrow. A job interview. Whoot whoot.

So I am signing off from my Sterling nest wishing all a wonderful evening and peaceful night.
