- 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...

Hi, I'm Ter the Grouch
I've been a real grump this past week. I don't know what's going on with me, but I'm grumpy. I'm scaring people away. I just hope some of my readers are indeed loyal and put up with me and my mood swings. Please don't take offense if I don't read/comment on everyone's blogs this week.
I feel like the bird in this book.
(My brother introduced me to this book, it's his favorite!)
I think the grumpiness started with my internet being off/on/off/on all week. Admit it. That'd make you grumpy too!
I got some statistics from my neighbor about the little ' dried up ' creek behind my house that I posted about in this post. According to what he wrote on Facebook, this little creek is usually 1 foot wide and 10 inches deep and it rose 8 feet in two days. So, thank you for thinking it's pretty, but it is prettier without the water! I'll hopefully go out and take some photos this weekend.
April 10, 1993 and April 19, 1993 were life altering days for our little high school. Two of our classmates were killed in two separate car accidents. I will never forget the eerie-ness of our school during that time and pretty much the rest of the school year. I think we all waited for the other shoe to drop. Bad things come in 3's right?
Update on Photography School:
This is a direct quote from the email they sent - "I think that you are a good applicant for the school and if we can sort out having an interpreter for you here at the school we would provide acceptance to the program."
So I am looking into that. Will update further as I know more.
I've added 2 new books to my Spring Reading Thing list.
Who needs an alarm clock when you got an Emma? She wakes me up by body-slamming against the bed til I get up.
Does anyone have a cure for lazyitits? I could use it. Seriously.
In fact, I'm trying to come up with more fragments just to avoid doing any real work. Talk about lazy!
Come back later for VGNO! I wonder what kind of adventure Emma will have this week....
