I did a double take on this one :)

I was recently going through yet another box ( I think they are breeding in our garage) and came across a stack of newspapers from 1963 and 1964. I knew immediately these had articles about my grandfather and a few letters to the editor written by him about a lawsuit he brought against the county […]

Hanging Pictures..his way, my way … send help!

There are a lot of things that can stress a relationship. Money woes, buying a house, new babies, kids in general, teenagers, stress at work. All the things. One of the things that stresses us out is hanging pictures. It should be simple right?  Not. This has become quite the discussion in our new home. […]

A funny thing happened onto the way to the coffee pot and other mishaps

Every single morning I walk into our kitchen and turn on the Keurig which my husband has nicknamed the Kruger ( him being witty 🙂  Then I fill up the regualr coffee pot that will brew while I sip on my first cup of joe courtesy of Mr. Kruger. Something tells me I need to […]

Well this surprised me…

I am surprised I decided to write about this because a few years ago I would have never even considered the idea.  As a matter of fact I probably would have said “Ewww, who does that”. Yet as my life experiences multiply I have come to realize that guess what, it might acutally be a […]

Let it go and keep laughing

Ok I am officially losing it. Well maybe.  This is the second time I have come to the beach and forgotten my swimsuit after reminding Paul to bring his like 1,000 times and he forgot his as well. We are a pair. Talk about opposites attracting.  We are the classic example. He is organized, number […]

Who knew you could look this good after 12 moves?

As newlyweds in Corpus Christi, Texas we were pretty much broke.  Well not totally broke but we were scraping by on Paul’s pay as an Ensign in the Navy and my pay as an Administrative Assistant. I actually remember Paul balancing the checkbook and we had exactly 10 cents left.  That is not a typo.  […]

Traveling with me is such a joy…maybe not

We are currently on a mini vacation or not depending on when this gets posted. 🙂 My favorite part of traveling is arriving.  My not so favorite part is packing and getting the house ready for our departure. I am always amazed how opposites attract and this certainly applies to Paul and me when we […]

I think it was the cocktails…

Saturday was not my best day and yet it got turned around in a lovely way. My benevolence/compassion/tolerance well was bone dry. In our never ending move we were trying to sell some things on Facebook Marketplace which is a challenge in patience and endurance. Lots of scammers, lots of people who flake on you.  […]

Here Paul jump in this box….

I thought I would never say this but I miss our Navy moves.  Wait what? Yup I miss them coming in and packing everything that wasn’t nailed down including the trash. Or the time they moved us out of base housing and tried to take the refrigerator which belonged to the Navy. It was still […]

Before I was even a thought in their heart

Before I was even a thought in their heart my parents were young and in love. They dated, but were mostly friends in the beginning and then pen pals as my Dad spent several years in the South Pacific as a young officer in the Navy. I guess they were more than pen pals I […]
