Love my crazy Life

I found a book and remember now why I don’t read so much anymore. I get so caught up in them that the time gets away from me. Last night, I thought I would just read for an hour and go to bed. Two nights in a row, bedtime has come and went without...

Love my crazy life

What a week! After surviving graduation, George decided he needed some time off and scared us all half to death with a trip to the emergency room and an overnight stay at Mary Lanning. He is fine as frog hair now, but his blood pressure went through...

Love my crazy life

I did it! Two boys graduated from high school. I deserve an atta boy! I wasn’t sure we were going to make it there, but we did! I think I had more anxiety over getting through graduation day than I have had the entire 17 years of raising the boy....

Love my crazy life

This weekend I worked on getting the house picked up and organized. This required moving a few items we are currently not using out to the garage. I have this fun game I like to play; it’s called how many things can a person stuff into a tiny area...

 

Love my crazy life

Sometimes I get the desire to look more put together. Not often, but it happens. I recently purchased a couple of sundresses, thinking I might wear one to graduation. Last weekend I was shopping and found another dress, and so I showed George and...

Love my crazy life

The past week flew by. Hubby was home for most of it, which completely threw me off. He concussed himself, and the doctor thought it best he stayed home. I guess he is not as hard headed as I thought. Thankfully he is all better and back to work. The...

City of Nelson adopts Vacant Property Ordinance

The ordinance book for any city is a "beyond boring" read. In fact, when I worked in the city office, I wanted to run away when revisions came in and the books needed to be updated. No matter how dry...

 

Love my crazy life

I’m having trouble getting my ducks in a row this week and keeping them there. Every time I have started a task, I have been re-tasked to something completely different. I feel like I’m running in circles. After months of looking, debating, and...

Love my crazy life

I’m so tired of being tired! I did have a productive Saturday, the first in a while. I suppose that means I’m starting to get back to my ol’self. I got the house clean, laundry done and had supper on the table by six. Then on Sunday, I was up...

 

Special Scoops - a great fit for Gabi Herbek

If you've ever been to a Lawrence Nelson Raiders game, you've probably met Gabriella Herbek, otherwise known as Gabi. That's where I met her. I was sitting in the bleachers at a basketball game when she sat beside me and began talking my ear off....

 

Love my Crazy Life

I woke up to the birds chirping this morning; that was a nice change of pace. Usually, it’s my alarm clock squawking after I’ve hit snooze for the fifteenth time. When I came downstairs to get my morning cup of joe, I could have sworn I heard...

Carmen's Style Shoppe; A family affair

Years ago, when I had just moved back to this area, I was having a rough time with things. We were forced to move abruptly and had to downsize quite a bit. I was looking for a job, and the work I had done previously required I wear a uniform of...

 

Love my crazy life

Writer’s block, ugh! I got it, and it is not good! I have been staring at this computer screen for hours, and the words just aren’t coming. I can almost feel my editor breathing down the back of my neck as my deadline is fast approaching. I sat d...

Love my crazy life

By Teraesa Bruce Well, it’s been another mess of a week. Nicholas, the youngest of our two Omaha boys, was here this weekend. We finished his room just in the nick of time. George and Jacob brought his bed in and set it up just an hour before I...

 

Love my Crazy life

I don’t know where to start. It’s been a tough week. Two of my friends are sick and were hospitalized, the pick-up broke down, and I hit a deer. On top of all that, I haven’t been feeling tippy-top. No worries, I’m not contagious or...

 

Love my Crazy Life

Wow, 2022, that’s going take a minute to get used to, I’ll be writing 2021 on everything until at least March. George installed the washer and dryer on Friday, and I’ve been doing laundry ever since. I am slowly but surely getting things unpack...

 

Love My Crazy Life

First off, I need to apologize. A couple of weeks ago, my column was a repeat of the week before, which caused some disappointment for those of you who read it. Last week it was overlooked, or there simply wasn’t room in the paper for it, so it...

 

Make it happen in 2022

New year's resolutions are big for many people. I don't understand it, but the new year does seem like a good excuse for a fresh start. I often wonder how many of those well-intended resolutions...

 

Memories of Christmas Past

Other than the fun of Halloween, Christmas has to be one of my favorite times of the year. I love the decorations, the lights, the carols, the tree, the excitement and the food. I will never know why anyone waits until Christmas to make fudge and...

 

Love my Crazy life

I think I need a vacation. Today was like every other Monday, and it began with crawling out of bed, drinking coffee, and finishing up all I had started the week before to be emailed to The Express for publication. On Mondays, I pick up the mail for...

 

After the deer hunt comes processing the meat

Every year, thousands of people apply for a deer license with the hope of bagging a trophy buck and providing food for the family. Though I have never shot a deer, hunting season has been a big deal in my family. Almost more prominent than the...

 

Love my crazy life

It’s been another wild weekend of burning the candle at both ends. Friday morning, I left the house around nine to pick up my glasses from the eye doctor. After having my glasses fit, I hit the road headed to Sutton to have my back cracked by the...
