My Crazy Life

I got the taxes done, and we got our refund. Yay! We paid off a debt that has been weighing on me for almost a year now. I can’t tell you how good that felt. We even had money left so we decided to see if we could get some things we need, like...

My Crazy Life

My baby attended his junior prom Saturday. How time flies! He looked so handsome and grown up in his tux. It’s hard to believe he will be a senior next year. I’m not sure if I should be getting the baby photo’s out and crying or celebrating tha...

The debate over masking in the schools

The community has been “a buzz” about removing the Sandy Creek and Lawrence-Nelson Schools’ mask requirements. Being the curious person I am, I decided to dig in and find out what all the fuss was about. I spoke to quite a few people and left q...

 

My crazy life

Taxes! Most years the deadline to have taxes filed is today. I have not even started yet! Most years, I have them done and filed by Feb. 15, at the latest. Talk about procrastination; I’m becoming a Pro-crastinator! It’s on the agenda for...

My Crazy Life

The planets aligned, and the “powers that be” finally decided to schedule my MRI. They called late Friday afternoon and set me up to go into the tube of horrors at 9 a.m., Monday. I am no stranger to this loud clanking picture-taking tube....

 

My Crazy Life

I’ve been having a rough time with “adulting” the past few days. Maybe it’s the weather that’s got me in a funk, who knows! Robert was home for a bit Saturday and Sunday. He had gone with a friend to Wisconsin to pick up his car, and we...

 

Opening your garden

Now that we have made it past false spring and second winter, many of us are yearning to get out into the garden. Try not to get too overzealous. The experts say we should wait until daytime temperatures are more than 50º to avoid harming our...

 

My Crazy Life

We have begun spring yard work at our house on Fourth Street. Ten years ago, it would have been an easy task and finished in a three-day weekend. That is not the case anymore. Honestly, if my husband and son weren’t helping, I would probably work u...

My crazy life

Jacob is officially a licensed driver! I dropped him at the courthouse Tuesday morning and had him call me to bring the car down when his number was called. I’m so proud of him but nervous at the same time. Not quite as much as when his older...

 

My crazy life

Even though there is still white stuff in the forecast, spring is on its way! I noticed a tulip pushing through the earth near my foundation and the tiniest buds on my lilac bushes. I enjoy watching nature come back to life. I can’t wait for the...

My crazy life

Word travels fast in a small community, so it’s likely not news to many of you that my husband and I had COVID. The hubby tested positive on Feb. 2, and me on the 5th. The teenager’s test came back negative. He has been isolated in his room. We...

 

Baby it's Cold Outside

Here in south-central Nebraska, we are no strangers to miserably cold winters and dry, cracked skin, but this winter is setting records for just how cold it can get. Right now, it's -23º, give or...

 

My crazy life

Not a whole lot is happening around here, just the normal. messy house, unruly children, work, bills, laundry...nothing eventful to speak of. I’m still not feeling myself. Waiting on doctors to call back is as eventful as watching the grass grow in...

 

My Crazy Life

Move back to Nebraska, they said. It will be fun, they said. Just because my birthdate happens to fall in the winter does not mean I happen to enjoy it. I am currently unable to feel my toes after...

 

My Crazy Life

Almost every year for the past nine years, George and I have been in Omaha many a new year. Whether it be for the end of the year meetings or our visitations with the boys, we have often found ourselves in Omaha. This year the boys came here, and...

 

My Crazy Life

Well, ya’all, 2021 did not bring with it the magical reset button I’m sure many of us hoped it would. I’ve never really understood the whole “New year, new me” concept. I’ve always found it to be a pain in the tuchus. I have to buy a new...

 

My Crazy Life

Looking back over the last 12 months, it’s hard to believe it has only lasted 365 days. Many changes have taken place in such a short time, not just for us, but for the whole world. It seems like every country in the world had a stake in our...

 

My Crazy Life

This past week has been a bust. Thursday morning, as I climbed from my bed, I immediately fell back onto it. Vertigo is a horrible thing. I thought the sensation would pass, but by afternoon it was evident that it would not. I’ve had this before,...

 

My Crazy Life

George started work today! After 12 weeks, it is sure nice to have my house back to myself for even a few hours a day. You won’t hear me complain about missing him anymore because he works just across town—a welcomed change. This morning, I...

 

Love my Crazy Life

This past weekend was quiet—a big change from the two previous. I miss the commotion. George and Jacob have decided to start renovations in the laundry room, so I won’t miss it for long. The laundry room was once the kitchen, an add-on years...

 

Just wear the mask!

As the Pandemic reaches closer to home, it seems many of us are just over it. We have heard for months now to stay home, social distance, wear a mask - “the new normal.” It’s become a regular thing to show up to the bank looking like a robber....

 

The history behind the Christmas lights in Nelson
