Love my crazy life

I left a window open and woke up in a chilly house; it was a brisk 53º downstairs. No wonder I’m still feeling under the weather; this time of year always gets me. With harvest starting, my sinuses will surely be full through the new year. I got a...

 

Love my crazy life

I got a letter from Jacob Friday, who has an ear infection and pneumonia. I hope he is all better now since I have not heard otherwise. Monday was the beginning of Swim Week for his company. All I can say is he better do well with this one. After...

 

Love my crazy life

I got letters from Jacob yesterday, not the standard letters, but actual letters! He wrote across the top of one in giant print, “I LOVE YOU!” That made my day! I thought the days of the kids’ scribbles on the refrigerator were over for now,...

 

Love my crazy life

The enviable truth of being a parent is that someday the last one will leave the nest. No matter how exciting it might sound, it still pulls on the heartstrings a bit. Everyone jokes and says, “It’s going to be hard when your baby leaves,” but...

 

Love my crazy life

I’ve been having lots of “feelings” lately, and I don’t like it one bit! Feeling number one, sadness. Today I pulled the plug on summer. I don’t know why, but that’s how I feel every time I drain the pool. This year felt different,...

 

Love my crazy life

The two hottest days of the year are the Nuckolls County Horse Show and Oregon Trail Day. Saturday was no different, yet hundreds of people turned out to take the tour in Oak and enjoy a day of history. More than 200 carloads braved the heat and the...

 

Love my crazy life

I have such great neighbors. I had a pile of tree limbs sitting out by the road. It seemed every chance we had to haul them off, it would rain, and we were unable to. One day, after work, I looked out, and the pile was gone. I asked Jacob if he had...

Love my crazy life

The last couple of weeks are finally catching up to me, and I feel as if I could sleep for a month. I drove to Fort Riley with a friend yesterday to pick up Robert’s vehicle. He flew out on Sunday for another six-week training and wanted me to...

Love my crazy life

By Teraesa Bruce I am writingfrom the pump area of the Nelson swimming pool. It seems my office changes weekly, if not daily. I tried to sit in the office and type, but between the guards coming in and out and my pool rats, I couldn’t keep a...

Love my crazy life

I read this on Facebook today, “Dear, whatever doesn’t kill me, I’m strong enough now. Thanks.” That hit home this past week and I’m pooped! It’s been one dramatic crisis after another. I’ve started answering the phone with “Now...

My two cents on Roe v Wade

Roe v Wade is all anyone seems to be talking about right now. There seems to be no blurred line on this topic; you are either for or against abortion. It is my understanding that the decision to allow or not allow abortion will now be left to the...

 

Time with family and history enjoyed at Fort Riley

What a weekend! We went to Fort Riley to visit Robert and my two adopted army brats and family. We arrived at the boys' place early in the afternoon on Friday. We were at the house long enough to use...

Angus resident buys rare 1970 Mustang

Many of us have that one thing we are crazy about and collect. It can be hard to make our family and friends understand why we are so crazy about it. My brother-in-law collects vintage t-shirts and...

Love my crazy life

I got plates on the scooter, and I’m getting better at corners. I haven’t run anyone over yet, so I’d say I’m doing well. Not quite ready for a Harley yet, but I’m making progress. LOL! Jacob made it home safely from his dad’s house, and...

Love my crazy life

The sun is shining, the pool is open, and the boy comes home from Dad’s tomorrow. I feel just a little lighter now that the worst of my stress has come and gone with no major drama. Jacob is driving himself home from Dad’s in his new,...

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...
