Such a Trying Week

This has been such a trying week.  I had a lot of work to get done at the beginning of this week, but got it done early so that I had the rest of the week free.  This was our last week of homeschool before 16 days off for Christmas vacation.  And then...

One crazy day down.....

Well, I just got home and must say that I am so terribly glad to be here.  I got up this morning and got myself and the children ready and headed to the church to do a run-through of the Christmas play.  Then went to church at 11:00 a.m.  Came home...

Get Over It

I had a conversation the other night on Facebook that seriously took me back to high school and made me think about how apparently some people never get over the high school years.  For me, that time in my life was great and ejoyable and...

ECU vs. Marshall

ECU, our local college football team, is playing Marshall today.  Knowing the story behind these two teams (despite the fact that I wasn't born yet when it occured) I can't help but get chills whenever these two teams play.  In 1970 ECU and Marshall...

What If?

I am going to seriously go out on a limb here to write this post.  I entitled it "What If?" because of the deep thoughts that were brought to my attention by a doctor that I work with.  I work in the mental health field and I have worked with this...
