2020 – ARE WE THERE YET?

Seriously? The weirder this year gets the more I just want it to be 2021 already.
This world has gone absolutely nutso. 
And yet… There’s a part of me that finds the whole idea of ringing in 2021 somewhat frightening.

It’s like waiting for the other shoe to drop only you don’t know if it’s really a shoe you just know that whatever it is, it’s going to fucking drop.

Fleeting thought – What’s Time Square going to look like this year?
What are all of the New Year celebrations around the globe going to look like??


THURSDAY – October 15
*****Thankful Thursday
1.) I’m thankful for my eyesight to see the beautiful colors of fall
2.) I’m thankful for snuggly hoodies for being outside walking in the wind watching the leaves fly.
3.) I’m thankful that we haven’t turned our heat on yet. It’s like a contest in our family. Who turns their heat on first.
4.) I’m thankful for pizza.
5.) I’m thankful for phone calls with my brother that always make me laugh so much AND we can discuss politics and still hang up the phone with “I love yous.”


FRIDAY – October 16
*****More birthdays…
Happy Birthday to my oldest grandson, Seth. 
He’s 14 today!
And to my mom who never could seem to remember Seth’s birthday even tho, he was born on her birthday.
I’m pretty sure she did it just to piss me off. It worked.
She would’ve been 91!
Our relationship wasn’t easy but I loved her very much…
Happy Birthday, mom!

An Etsy find that I absolutely L ❤ VE

WEDNESDAY – October 21
*****Wordless Wednesday


Another virus-free week in the books for myself and those I hold near and dear.
I hope the same holds true for all of you.
My allergies are kicking up a bit but I’m good with that. It’s annoying and I feel like crap most of the time but as far as I know, at least for me, they’re not deadly.

Fall is here in full swing and the temps are dropping like a rock but still, we have yet to turn on our heat. It’s a small victory and a bit of a challenge throughout our family. Who can go the longest without turning the heat on.

I don’t know who started it or why, I’m sure it started out with someone calling someone else a pussy because they didn’t like the cold, which, being Michiganders is pretty much a sin. So, here we are, a family waiting to see who can freeze first!

How about where all of you are? Beautiful fall temps or temps dropping like a rock? OR… Who’s got snow??? I-CAN’T-WAIT!

Everyone, please, be safe when you’re out n’ about. They say this virus is getting worse. You know what to do. Keep yourselves safe and those around you.

SIDE NOTE – My Thankful Thursday today is that modern medicine is an amazing thing. My son has issues with abrasions on his corneas.

He’s been to the optometrist and the ophthalmologist. He’s had prescription eye drops, anti-biotics, visual bandaging via a contact lens, and far too many scrapings of his corneas and now the doctors have reached another level of treatment.
Drum roll, please…

Serum tears. They’re making eye drops from my son’s blood!
How crazy is that??? Maybe it’s just crazy to me because I’d never heard of it but holy modern medicine Batman!

I don’t know how it all works but the eyedrops made from your own blood has healing properties specific to you and you’ll heal much faster.
I know. It’s nuts. It’s also amazing and I truly am thankful.

– FRIDAY –
25.) A simple pleasure

It’s been a week to be sure… But here we are.
We all made it and that’s a big deal! Hugs all around!
Let’s do the same thing this coming week!
