Christmas Day itself

I will start with a funny story, though it is only funny because it was not serious. I have been cooking since I was 10 years old. I have worked in many kitchens and can cook just about anything, as long as it is not ornate or super decorative as I am not really good... Continue Reading →

Grandbaby 2

Granddaughter 2, Baby S came into the world almost two weeks ago. Her Mom was creating a HUGE freaking scene both inside and outside of the hospital. She probably should not have done that...the hospital hotlined her and Baby S was not initially allowed home. CPS was absolutely unprofessional with me on this one. They... Continue Reading →

Managing Frustration

N was away at respite this weekend. When I went downstairs to put some new clothes on her bed I saw the bag of chips that was missing. I sighed, second time in three weeks she has stolen food from me. I took her off the internet and waited for her to return and of... Continue Reading →

Almost to Montreal

We actually live in upstate NY so it is not uncommon to see the Canadian license plates that say Je Me Souviens. Translated it means roughly, yours to remember. Hopefully the trip we will take will be a great memory for all the right reasons. This week we were supposed to go to court to... Continue Reading →

Meltdown Central

It has been a rough week so I am hoping tonight and this coming week will be a step up. On Monday they draw blood on me as I have been not feeling well for a long time. On Wed the lab and the county call me I am positive for Lyme Disease again. I... Continue Reading →
