This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

We are having unseasonably warm temperatures which are surely just a tease! However, it is dangerously icy outside. So icy, in fact, that people are literally SKATING on the roads. I saw it on the news last night, and then just in the last hour I actually saw a few people with skates skating down the street!!

My poor pup wants to go for a walk and I want to take her.... but I won't... not with all that ice!! Past experience has taught me that Ter + Ice = Broken Knee. (And this lesson was taught to me a few times now, although not always broken, but re-injure an old severe injury!)

So for now, we shall continue to long for real spring to arrive. Nix that. We shall long for summer!

It is really icy here too. It rained Sunday night and all day yesterday.

Ouch, broken knees. I have problems with my knees too, but since I have been losing a little weight, they have been feeling better.

It is going to be in the 50s today! I opened up some windows to air out the house.

Thanks for the spellcheck:)

Oh my! Stay off the ice!

Speaking of ice... did you hear about the idiots who went out on the ice here in the states? And a huge ice floe broke off and they were floating away and had to be rescued by helicopters? What a bunch of fools! There were over 100 of them out there!! Dumbasses!

Ouch! You definitely don't need to re-injure that knee!!!

Holy cow! I hate ice and I hate ice skating, so I wouldn't be very happy!

Teri said...

Wow! That ice sounds both dangerous & fun! :) Be safe, though - no more broken knees!

And yes, you must get google analytics on your blog! Type google analytics into google & it will give you installation instructions, etc. If you get confused (I know I did), just look online for FAQs and they'll point you in the right direction. The only thing you need to know is that if you change your layout, you'll have to re-add the analyzer each time! It's interesting!

I have to admit I have never seen people skating on the road!!

Jenners said...

Ice skating down the streets! Now that is something I've never seen ... and never hope to see! Stay warm and safe inside!
