Hello, Is Anybody Out There?

I hope to end my self imposed hiatus. I am dipping my toes back into the blogging pool. Follow along, glad to have you here. As with anything else, the break has given me a new perspective. I am in my 50's now and have learned not to sweat the small stuff. Mentally and physically I am in a far greater place than when I first began.

As a family we are learning to deal with elderly but relatively healthy parents, it is definitely not easy but we are all fortunate that our parents are still able to live on their own. It is a bit scary to realize that their warranty's may be running out soon but we are determined to be more patient and understanding and grateful for the fun times and less angry with the frustrating episodes. If there are helpful hints out there, by all means throw them my way.

Lil Wicked is a sophomore in college!! OMG! She is studying journalism and is blossoming in the most fabulous way. She has a great foundation for being able to cope with all the nuances of college life; I am happy to be her confidant.

I have a new furry kid, my 2 year old golden retriever. We will call him Sir Giraffe as he is a very tall golden. About 7 months ago he developed epilepsy so life can be challenging when he has seizures. It is the worst feeling in the world to watch your fur baby have multiple seizures. After each episode I am trying to be stronger emotionally, some times are easier than others. He is on medication and life between seizures is great, hopefully he will live a long healthy, happy life.

My work life is the same, this year I will strive to make changes with that situation. Fingers crossed.

I started out the new year with a great surprise. I won 2 round trip tickets to Turkey by commenting on a FB page about what the Holidays meant to me. My luck is changing! Lil Wicked and I will be traveling in May as soon as her semester is over.

I believe we are all caught up. Welcome aboard....

The Return of Longfellow

This might be the best text exchange I have ever experienced, so I will share.....

Wicked H:
Oddest text you might receive...I have lost my english cucumber somewhere between the kitchen counter and my car. Definitely not in my car. Hopefully the Boy is not chowing down. In case you run into it. Have a good one!

Dog Walker:
Def oddest! I'll put up some lost signs in the 'hood. Missing: tall English gent. Answers to name 'Longfellow'

Wicked H:  Snort!

Dog Walker:
Often heard saying: "It's not easy being green." People assume he's seedy.

Wicked H:
Cancel the ransom. Longfellow has been found! Your signs worked!

Dog Walker:
Oh good! I feared he'd get knifed if out in the big bad world for too long on his own.

Wicked AND 50!!

Is this where I thought I'd be as a younger version of myself? If my memory would work,I'd answer the question but alas..

 I am in a pretty good place. This birthday did not come with a negative vibe which I am happy about. Age does bring wisdom, I embrace it with a vengance.

 Laughter is a huge part of my life, not sweating the small stuff and always looking forward are the keys to my existence.

Happy Half Century to Me!
