Good morning! Recently I updated my “About Me” Section to Include a bit of why anyone might like this blog. I feel the “About Me” section is one of the pages in which someone visiting your page decides they may stay or not, subscribe or not, or keep the link or not. So I made the following points about what my blog really has been about these last few years. While it DOES show and reveal my day to day life, I DO think that others can get ideas from the blog.
For whatever reason I was not able to copy and paste into the WordPress template, so I just snapped a pic. I think these ideas are pretty much what a reader would get from the blog. Perhaps you have more to add?
As readers, you have told me a few things that inspired you from the blog. Some read to see what Nashville is like, some read to see what all new things I’m doing or trying, some read just for the curiosity of reading about another person’s life, several have gotten to know me well and read because I’m a friend and they genuinely care. Some read because they are also fifty something and we are all in this aging thing together, we need to see what works, what doesn’t and share ideas. And of course some read to see if I will slip up and say things I shouldn’t. Now that I am not in HR that is less of a highlight. I never liked being on the gold throne of perfectness because I’m not and don’t want to be held to a higher standard. I just want to be ME! I want to tell it like it is, tell it as I saw it, tell it as I believe it. And if it exposes something that is wrong. Well, perhaps it (the blog) did what it should have. Some family read because they want to keep up with me as their family member and go behind the scenes. Other family read without me knowing it because they are curious. And some family never read because it makes them mad. And some of you have read the blog because you are just pure angels of encouragement and I feel God sent you my way! Whatever the reason, in most cases I’m glad you are here! And there are about 85 to 100 of you that visit daily. That may not be many to some, but it is impressive to me.
Update on Life These Days
Roger has made a mess by stepping in his dog dish (top of photo). A daily mishap. We have to put it in the middle of the floor so he will see it and think to eat. If not he will forget or not see it. Doggie Dementia! We’ll have to do something else when Mom arrives so she doesn’t trip over it. We do ourselves. I don’t know how many times I’ve stepped in his dish. Makes me mad every time. We need a different system.
His paw is recovering and he got to take the bandage off yesterday. But there is still a piece of tape we can’t get off as it hurts when we pull on it. We will keep trying. I fear Roger will get it off and get the tape stuck in his mouth or swallow it. Life is always a challenge.
George fixed a beef brisket last night for dinner! It was so good!
We are planning on moving a lot of Mom’s things via cargo van. Even any furniture that will fit. So it’s a big weekend. George is planning on getting a lot moved into storage. So while ya’ll are celebrating and kicking off summer we will be working our tails off.
Think of us!
Got a lot done on the video this week! The voiceovers are finished. Just need to edit down some more to cut down any minutes I can, add music and a few graphics and it’ll be done. I probably need another week!
Ya’ll have a fun weekend. I’ll try to pop in on Sunday! Not much else to report on. Looks like I get to drive in with the rain today. Running a bit late. It seems I need about 15 extra minutes these days. Maybe I should get up earlier!

We have rain, storms, temps in the 50’s to 30’s the next 3 days. We are doing “Spring” cleaning. Might have a hot dog on Monday.
I know you guys will make major moving accomplishments this weekend. And something tells me you’ll have a hot dog or something. Something?!
I guess I fall into this category 😇
Right? I think so 😋
Hi Sonya, I had never read…..who your blog was aimed for !! How many years have I been following you, I dare to even think. I do know that Kate was a wee girl and I’ve followed her every step. I think that Roger was the dog Kate first brought home, was she ? I can certainly say I’ve had lots of fun following you and George I’ve had times too when tears have fallen down my cheeks, I just know that a deep friendship has been made ( certainly on my side from the other side of the pond). I think you know that. I am sure other people who may have just looked in on you through curiosity will have felt your friendship and stayed with you….
I hope you can find some time to relax and rest a bit at some time over the weekend. Good luck to you and George and Mum for the move….take care. God Bless.
Aww 🥰 sweet Sybil! Yes Late brought Roger home to us. Neighbor brought us Maisy! I’m waiting on the next one!
