Monday Memories-The Cartwheel Catastrophe of 2016

Today was a beautiful day!  I got to get outside and really enjoy it as I made my way to the tram station.  The sun was shining and it was rather warm outside considering we just had snow 2 days ago.  Spring is coming.  I got to thinking about working in the garden, and how […]

A Google Search, My Struggle to Learn German Continues…

I have been on the struggle bus for about a week.  The grey skies are not helping.  The cold rain that seems to come every, freaking day is not helping.  The cold wind, not helping.  The fact that I have to go back to German Class tomorrow, definitely NOT HELPING.  We have had a lovely […]

Monday Memories-My Blended Family, Shopping for Rubber Bands

Sometimes it hard to remember a time when we weren’t all family.  Dark times really.  Really dark.  Most of the time it feels like we have always been together, Dirk, Kai, Sierra, Cheyenne and myself. It wasn’t always so easy. I know that we are very lucky, not all of my friends have had successful […]
