Long week……Sums up my week……..





It’s been THAT week
Working too MUCH……Caring too MUCH…….Sleeping TOO LITTLE………
Can barely Catch My Breath…….
Along comes Kelly Clarkson to SAVE the week!!!
My favorite lines……..
“Heavy heart, now a weightless cloud
Making time for the ones that count
I’ll spend the rest of my time
Laughing hard with the windows down
Leaving footprints all over town
Keeping faith KARMA comes around
I will spent the rest of my life
Catching my breath, letting it go,
turning my cheek for the sake of this show
Now that you know,
this is my life,
I won’t be told what’s supposed to be right”













The ones we love make up the bits of our heart and make our days brighter.

Thank YOU Lisa Leonard!!!! (bits of my heart bracelet)

THIS was my choice for a Mother’s Day Gift this year.

I hold my 3 boys very close to my heart and NOW I can wear them on my arm at ALL times.


Another thing close to my HEART are roses and lately I have been obsessed with taking pictures of them..….






TODAY we cleaned out Drew’s dorm as he has moved home for 10 days BEFORE starting his summer job.

The dorm looked like Animal House and the ONLY thing that kept me from turning Drew in for a girl first child

were the roses OUTSIDE his VERY messy kitchen window…

I put some on the table, in the front room hoping maybe the inspector would see the beauty beyond the mess 🙂





















I also want to send APPRECIATION to ALL my fellow nurses during this NURSES WEEK!!!!!

My morning cup of coffee deserves a post all its own. As I have said in previous posts, I work nights. 12 hours people and that statement in itself deserves a round of applause and a caffeine celebration!

When I make my way into the kitchen in the morning, I head right to the Keurig. Not a word, not a thought, just a focus.

Brewing the morning cup of joe takes me from a sound sleep to a somewhat decent person.

My boys know to proceed with caution until the big mug is filled.

I am a fan of the coffee process…the site, the smell, the brewing. My Keurig ( a single cup coffee maker that rocks) brews a cup in less than 30 seconds.

Instant person.

I wondered this morning why they call coffee it average Joe, Joe the coffee boy, how are you doing Joe?

What is Joe all about?

In the big picture, it really doesn’t matter, because Joe rules my world and he can be Boyfriend Joe for all I care 🙂

Any thoughts people?

I walk. It is what I do. It’s my mental health. I walk every day same route, same pace, different music. The faster, the better.My head is clear, great ideas come to me and I am at peace.Having 3 boys can cloud your head. They want a lot of you and walking is my “me time” A lot of my friends, coworkers see me walking my walk. They say they honk, but I don’t look. I tell them I am in my walking zone. It’s “me time”.

For some people, its Nordstrom. For some people its shoes. For me its cards. I LOVE cards. I love to pick out that special one, receive that perfect one and all around hang out in a Halllmark store.I dream of the day I could own one. I know just how I would llay out the cards and merchandise. I would have candles burning, free goodies, raffles, It would rock!!!
