Thursday 13: 13 days after the car accident

I am 13 days post car accident and feeling much better. Part of that is because I can see that the end is near, and part of that is because my ears stopped ringing about a week ago. Yesterday the insurance company finally had an adjuster look at the car and they have officially totaled […]

Vader Vacation has a dramatic ending

  It’s Tuesday and we returned from our vacation on Sunday night. I don’t even know where to begin, honestly, I don’t. I guess I’ll start at the end, mostly because it’s fresh in my mind and mostly because it’s quite honestly the most frustrating thing I’ve ever been through. Friday morning we packed up […]

Vader Vacation: Colorado bound

We drove from Wisconsin to Colorado on Saturday morning in a straight shot. We left at 2:44 am which means by about 8 am I NEEDED coffee.

The sad truth: Separate and not equal

Today the obituary for my husband’s dad was in the newspaper. The order of the kids goes from youngest to oldest. I must say, this was not a tactic that I ever thought would be used, but it was, and the grand kids were also listed youngest to oldest. This makes me so incredibly sad […]

All the buttons were pressed

This is a rerun from 2009, it was Easter and we were going to visit Darth Vader’s dad, who actually just passed away on Friday. This story cracks us up every time we get into an elevator. You’ll see why. All the buttons were pressed My father-in-law is in the hospital, so after Easter lunch […]

The last week has been frustrating

I’ve been dealing with a pile of frustration and lack of communication over the last week or so. It’s taken me this long to try to figure out if I even want to write about any of it. The momma bear in me is getting ready to roar, but in trying to give privacy, respect […]
