I underestimated myself (and my boys)

Standard

I am not alone in the nightmare. All one had to do was look out his/her car window to see others experiencing the same misery. We were all stuck.

Due to a snow and ice storm and a mass exodus to reach home before the roads turned treacherous, the roads were filled and full fast: highways, interstates, side streets, back roads, etc.

My story is not the worst; but, it is my story, and I want to share it with you.

Holding the Power and Having No Kids

Standard

Because I have been remiss in writing, I feel I am a newbie once again. That said, pardon me while I get a little manic and scatter-brained.

Before I get to the meat of this post, I am showing a bit of my giddy school girl geekiness. Understand, my geekiness is for technology that has existed for years, but the technology is newly in my hands. Ack! I have the technology; I can make it better, stronger,… Wait. Wrong reference.

Project 366: Day 359 A Christmas Wish

Standard

Today’s photo is not a photo but a series of photos put to music. For the past several weeks, Joe and Charlie have been listening to “A Christmas Together, John Denver and the Muppets“. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I recommend you purchase this CD. Every song on the CD is full of delight, right down to the song “We wish you a Merry Christmas” and the verse, “Now bring us some figgy pudding”, which Ms. Piggy hears as “bring us some piggy pudding”. Good times, readers. I promise.

I hope you enjoy this song, “A Christmas Wish”, sung by Kermit the Frog. The sentiment has no boundaries, and it is my wish to you. Because I believe a big part of Christmas is love, I wish you, regardless of your background and/or belief, a merry Christmas.

Project 366: Day 357 A Night Out

Standard

These pictures are a day late (and cell phone quality). My apologies. Rob and I enjoyed a night out listening to live music performed by David Ryan Harris and Michael Tolcher.  These guys played at the Red Clay Theater, owned by Eddie Owen of Eddie Owen Presents. If you come to Atlanta, you need to make the drive North to Duluth, and enjoy some live music at the Red Clay Tavern. If you’re lucky, you’ll be in town at the same time David and Michael are in town.
