Don’t you hate it when you get your average medical history form and you’re instructed to list your surgeries and hospitalizations and you don’t have enough room to list the things up until your 20’s…mind you you are currently 44 years old. My husband just says to write small, lol. I’ve had around […]

This was a “conversation” between my son and I this morning.
This is just one example of how autism is in our home.
Dusty – “It’s almost the 15th.”
Me – “What’s the 15th?”

Today marks my first birthday without my momma. This was hard to do.

I didn’t really want to celebrate it. My daughter said to me “you know she would want me to celebrate it” So I did with some wine.

James was going to get me collard greens and fried flounder but the restaurant was closed […]

Damn shame

By |March 8th, 2019|Family|0 Comments

It is a damn shame, the amount of money we spent on two Catnapper (brand) supposed to be leather electric recliners.

We needed something to ease the pressure on my spine so a recliner was the thing. The price wasn’t that much more for the electric ones so we got them.

We have had these chairs […]

My heart is breaking

This will be the hardest thing I have ever done. I have to somehow suppress the expression on my face because Dusty is watching me like a hawk.

He knows something is up.

This hurts so much.

I don’t know how to let go of my mother. I don’t know how to live my life without her. […]

Epidemic proportions

By |March 6th, 2019|Family|0 Comments

If you have read my blogs in the past you are familiar with the cause of death of my brother.

This hits home. 

My brother wasn’t actively using heroin as far as we know.  I do know he was using the prescription medication, methadone.  I wish things would have been different but I guess the good […]
