What a Month it was

This has been the craziest couple of weeks I’ve had in forever. And it has been wonderful. Mom arrived on the 15, Charlie came back from Belize on the 17 and then graduation on the 22. We’ve cleaned, visited, partied, cleaned again, and visited some more. It’s hard to believe that my son is now…

Wordless Wednesday – sorta ;-)

Charlie is home from the Billy White Mission in Belize!!! Yeah!!   This is graduation week and we are pretty swamped.. But I”ll have more information regarding life in Oklahoma and the trip to Belize next week. Hugs Deana

Keep Telling Your Stories

I wake up some days on top of the world. Other days I wake up feeling like I would rather be under my blankets. I am woman, and I can be moody. If you read my blog, you know that about me. You also know that I have a tendancy to compare my insides with…

After seeing this, my youngest has informed me that I am N-E-V-E-R allowed to criticize his choice in clothing ever again. People sometimes ask what I did…

Six Months Seizure Free and the Freedom to Drive

Dillon’s Pen and Ink Drawing for Art We’ve come a long way baby! Years ago,  epilepsy was a death sentence. They used to take epileptics to the city gates and stone them to death. We’ve grown from that to denial of rights.  50 years ago, epileptics were looked upon with fear and trepidation. They were…

What a Weekend

I was supposed to wake up at 5 am and get a jump start on my week. That didn’t happen. Turns out, my body wanted me to very self indulgently sleep in until 10 am. I couldn’t figure out why I am so tired, and then it hit me – we had a very busy three…
