Homework and Scrapbooking

Don't those two things go together like peas & carrots? No? Are you sure?

Okay, maybe you're right. Still, those are the two main things on my radar right now. I've finished the wrestling DVD - just waiting on the last few copies to finish burning.

First on the agenda is homework. Tomorrow night I have to turn in a five page literature review. Hopefully it goes together quickly and smoothly because I really have no time to spare.

After the homework deadline passes, I can finally focus on getting ready for my weekend away from home. Yep, it's that time of year again! Scrapbooking with the ladies for hours and hours on end. This particular trip (I have two planned) is about a hop, jump, and skip away from my house. Seriously. Less than five miles from the end of my driveway.

I know it may seem silly to "go away for the weekend" when I could just as easily stay home for free, especially when you consider the proximity of our getaway spot, but if I stay home, I don't scrapbook. I watch television, do homework, watch television, do laundry, read a book or two, think about doing the dishes and mopping the floor, and watch television. What I don't do is scrapbook, not for hours on end. So a weekend away, even at a nearby location, is a good thing for my neglected scrapbook albums.

Not that I'm ready. Not even close. I need to figure out what treats I'm bringing to share and I have to pick up a $5 gift. I also need to get my pictures together, do any journaling I think I'll need, and pack up everything. Good thing I don't need to be there until 7 PM on Friday. I'll need every spare minute after work to get ready!

My goal for the weekend: Finish Maine. Start Munising.


  1. You forgot to mention our 4mile Run!!! Hahaha.

    Well, I supose I could let you off the hook on this one if your pushig for time.

It Should Be Our 28th Wedding Anniversary

I had to do the math twice. Probably because I'm really bad at math. Today should have been our 28th wedding anniversary. We only made it to 26, which is so impressive when you consider how many marriages end in divorce.  So, because I have no doubt in my mind we would have been married still today had cancer not taken him, I want to honor our special day. So, here's a Happy Should Have Been Anniversary to my hubby in heaven.  Today, as I recognize what should have been and think about what was, I figured I'd share not only some lovely pictures from our wedding day but I'd explain how this widow plans to move through October 15, 2022.  In just a little bit, I'm joining another Millington widow at a Widow's Luncheon, which is being hosted by the Amish Church in Millington. I'm a bit nervous, to be honest, because I don't know what to expect. On my best days, I consider mys

Dreams and Nightmares

It's been a little over eight months now since I lost my husband to pancreatic cancer. Overall, I think I'm doing fairly well.  The house is still standing. I am still standing. Those both seem like significant wins.  I get through most days now without hardly a tear but there are those other days, days when I find myself unexpectedly crying.  Maybe it's a song on the radio or a touching scene on the screen setting off memories or reminding me of dreams unfulfilled. I cry then. It's impossible to hold back the grief, the self-pity, the wishes for more, or the distress at what happened in those last few weeks.    But for the most part, I think I am functioning fairly well. I am keeping my shit together. I am getting stuff done. I am taking care of what needs to be taken care of, whether that's the house, the bills, the car, the camper, the day job, the kids, or the grandbaby.  Every now and again I give myself permission to do nothing, though, because the loss of a p
