Aside from trying to learn the Mac, who knew one of my biggest “challenges” in going back to school would be STAYING HEALTHY!!! Second time I’ve come down with something in the last month and I’m NOT a happy camper! KIDS, don’t come to school SICK, PLEASE!!!!  🙂

Enjoying my classes and the daily challenges anyway. Although I must admit, I now know why college kids look forward to Spring Break!  I plan to fish, fish, and MORE fish, still stalking that elusive giant Rainbow Trout out there waiting for me!  Can I finally get one? Stay tuned!



Finally, on Friday, Feb. 10, Korben David Walsh made his grand entrance into our world and what  a beautiful boy he is!  Couldn’t wait to see him, but fighting off a cold, so didn’t get to see him till Sunday. I could hold him 24/7, he’s so sweet!

I predict lots of fun this summer with him and Deegan and my pool, if I can manage to keep it clean!

Personally, I’m SO done with winter and being cold; I just want Spring to hurry up and get here. I know my back-East friends and family will think it’s ridiculous to complain about temps in the 40’s and 50’s but it’s cold to ME! AND Spring means Spring Break and I’m so ready for that too! LOVE school, but ready for a break from homework!

Hope anyone reading this leaves comments or ??? But either way, I’m doing what I’m supposed to do: Writers write!


Tomorrow IS another day!

And I couldn’t wait for it to get here! Yesterday was the pits! Truck would not start, couldn’t go to class, dog broke a front window (byebye another $133 dollars not planned for!) and I nearly broke a toe! Today has GOT to be a better day!

Can’t decide which is making me more antsy these days: waiting for Katie to bring my new grandboy into the world or seeing my mid-term grades!! 🙂

Hope everyone is happy and healthy!

Chow for now!

On the Baby Watch….

SO, things are hectic once more: hubby working, me going to school and eagerly awaiting the birth-day of Katie’s new bouncing baby boy: Korben….Just wish he wasn’t taking  his sweet time getting here!

Just a couple of weeks ago, our Question of the Day was “Where do we fish today”?  Now, it’s  who’s getting dinner, who fed the animals, who needs to do what, when and HOW!?!?

But it’s all good! He’s working, I’m learning and Spring is right around the corner, which means SPRING BREAK!!! 🙂

Hope everyone is having a great week, so far….



Wow, at the risk of sounding like a teenager anxious to party all weekend: I’m SO glad it’s Friday! This week was particularly hectic for me –my first full week of trying to juggle school, homework, housework, cooking, cleaning, shopping, bill-paying and of course, fishing!  Fortunately for the fish, I had to forego a trip to the lake, so they get a couple extra days to figure out more ways to elude me!

On the very good side: hubby found a job and is starting today! YAY! Not exactly what he was looking for, but at age 63 and the market being what it is, we’re quite thankful he found one at all. Just hoping his bum knee will cooperate and he can do the job.

On the not-so-bright side: we now have to buy another vehicle so that we can both get where we need to go every day! Working on THAT dilemma!

And lastly, on the Baby Watch: Katie still hasn’t had little Korben, but I’ve had sympathy insomnia for the last two nights, so I do believe his arrival is imminent!   I admit, I’m quite anxious to cuddle a sweet-smelling little baby again, it’s been awhile!

Hope everyone has a very fine weekend and enjoys the Super Bowl; I’ll be watching the BETTER one: the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet! 🙂

Ciao for now!
