Did you feel it?


Today, on the way to work, I realized I forgot my cell phone...

...AND THEN THE EARTH STOPPED MOVING!!!

Did you feel it?

I mean, GAH! Forget my phone?! However did I survive the day?!

Seriously, the earth stopped. Right there...I'm sorry, for those of you whom were affected by my cell phone forgettage. I really do hope you'll forgive me. My husband wondered how I was possibly coping and making it through the day, knowing my phone was at home...without me.

All is well now tho...I'm back home. Phone back in it's appropriate place...


Resting on my tummy.

The Earth may now resume movement.

You're welcome.

P.S...I can NOT wait to tell you about my Girl's Night Out on Friday! CAN NOT WAIT!

Carry on...

  1. He he, i don't really worry if i leave my phone at home, apart from the fact i'm a housewife & i'm home with it, school can hunt me down sooner or later, it's only when my husband is in a war zone & gets to call & i've left my phone (or more often than not - can't hear it ringing!!) that i panic. You can imagine he's anxious too, i'm pretty unreliable with my phone, i don't love it & it doesn't love me back. Love Posie

  2. My thoughts are similar to Posie's. I don't usually freak about about forgetting my phone unless my husband is gone (like right now) or if I am going out in town. We live in Japan. When I am going to be out in town & not near the base, I worry that something will happen to the kids & I can't get there fast enough. Other than that, I "forget" my phone at home a lot! ha!

  3. I'm envious of you both! You know...it was a bit "liberating"!! Hmmmm...maybe I need to start "forgetting" my phone more often!

  4. HAHAHA! That would have been me! I feel nonfunctional without my cell phone. I have a friend who doesn't even have one and I tell her all the time, I am amazed by that. I would DIE. LOL!

  6. Oh I totally know what you mean. I hate it if I forget mine and I don't have time to turn around and go back for it.

  7. THAT was you!!!! You did that!!?? I knew I felt some sort of cosmic flux! Man, if I had known it was you... boy oh boy! :D

    I know what you mean though. When I forget my phone, I too, feel a little off kilter... given we don't have a home phone or anything else... and well, we're awaiting some signs of the arrival of my first ever grandbaby... I need connected!

  9. Ha! As far as I'm concerned, a forgotten phone is plenty of reason to be late to work! ;)

  10. Mama M~Absolutely start making a habit of "forgetting" your phone! You will be amazed at how much you can accomplish when you aren't side tracked by it!

Our Colorado Trip

One week ago today, I had skied myself down a mountain (several times) and survived.

Oh, you guys...Colorado has captured my heart. I loved our vacation like you wouldn't believe and while I am not (nor will I ever be) a world class skier (let's be honest, greens are where you'll find me...and I won't be whizzing down them, either!), the mountains and the skiing and the fresh air and the walking everywhere? I grabbed a hold of me and doesn't seem to be making any moves to let go!


Check out this view from our hotel room!!


I just told someone today, "If I had had my kids with me, I'm not sure I would've come back." I felt so healthy and vibrant and alive...ugh, I wanna go back!

Funny story, the first evening we were in Beaver Creek, we walked down to the village and I got my first real look at the ski runs...I thought, "Huh. They don't look so bad." and we went about our business and had supper and went ice skating and tucked ourselves in…

Sludge.

Grief...it's like a thick sludge, hard to wade through, difficult to know which way is up, feeling like you'll never get out of it.
Today was a rough day. I'm not sure if it was just setting in, or that grief coupled with today being Baby Girl's and my birthday, was just a bad combination, but whatever it was, I found it hard to keep the tears at bay.
Just when I thought I'd have it pulled together, I'd hear or read the words, "I'm sorry", or field a phone call, or think about the amazing outpouring of love and support...and the tears would flow. Fast and furious.
I've discovered that my rock, my strength, comes from being around family; specifically, my husband. When I'm alone, the thoughts and memories coming flooding in and the tears come pouring out. My brother-in-law, Verd, was an amazing man. Actually, "amazing" doesn't even do him justice, I wish I could find a word great enough to describe the kind of man he was.

My heart…

What I've learned.

Tomorrow marks the return to a "new reality" for our family.
After a couple of good days, I know everyone is apprehensive about what tomorrow will bring. I guess we'll just have to see.
This past week has taught me a lot...not the least of which was how many lives my brother-in-law had touched. Over 2,500 people waited in line, each for about 2 hours, to pay their respects to him at his wake. I was blown away...we were ALL blown away. At his funeral, the church held more people than it had ever held before...Christmas mass and Easter Sunday included.
Our priest was even amazed.
I also learned, probably most importantly, just what an amazing family I married into. Just how wonderful they all are, how strong they all are, how faithful they all are. As I spent this week "disconnected", I realized I was more connected than I had ever been...to my family.
I learned that the things that matter most in life are those that can't have a value placed on them. It's no…
