Welcome to my page

This is a picture of the Naperville Riverwalk in the fall of 2008 on a early Sunday morning. I love to walk along the Dupage River early morning and even in the Winter. Just up around the bend is a bridge with rapids running underneath it - you can listen to the water - very nice.

Thanks for the good wishes. Hope your holiday has been good. Ours was very pleasant, with a four day visit with our daughters, their hubbies (one future), and our grandson. Christmas is on the close horizon, and it feels like it this morning (27F at 8:00 AM).

Thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes. I hope you and your family enjoyed it also and didn't suffer from turkey overload.

Is it a question of decision making or discovery of a better deal that sent you back to return your black Friday purchases?

Enjoy the season,

for stoping by with Turkey Day wishes - it was indeed great day. The pilgrims spent 3 days on that first Thanksgiving celebrating.

Hi Mary, sorry for responding so late but things really got hectic for last couple of months. Got so involved in settling my younger daughter that I was in virtual spin and picture was quite hazy. It seems to be getting clearer now and hopefully she will be settled soon.
will keep in touch from now onwards. bye and take care.

Thank you for your kind Christmas greetings. I'm currently doing my best to not think about Christmas - 2 and a bit more weeks of school, reports, fragile children (students), cleaning my classroom, etc, all mean I am in denial. But it is nevertheless relentlessly moving towards the day. May you More...

Hi Mary
Thank you for your birthday wishes - I had a wonderful day! I got THREE boxes of chocolates! I too am looking at needed housework and not doing it. Luckily for me I have a great excuse and others are doing most of it for me!! Wishing you a wonderful holiday season with lots of yummy food, including chocolates galore...

Mary, my thoughts & prayers are with you & your family at this very difficult time. There are so many of us who have dealt with similar situations & can sympathize. It is understandable that your father is tired at the age of 89, especially if he has had medical problems for a long More...

Hi Mary,
I left a comment on the easy page for you but I just wanted to say that I'm thinking of you and I understand the distress you will be going through with you father's health and having to put him in a nursing home. Hopefully you will find a nice one with caring staff. It will make you More...

Hi, Mary! Please know that we are thinking of you and your family as you make the tough decision to find a safer place for your father. It will be hard (no, impossible) to find a place where he will be as happy as he would be at home, but his safety must be considered. Prayers are winging your way! Be aware of all the love and support for you here. Good luck and peace!

Mary, and to let you know that my thoughts and prayers are with you, not just today but everyday. Sometimes in life we do things we don't necessary like but are necessary for the benefit of others and themselves.

Mary, I have just come home from a mercy dash to Adelaide in a very similar situation to yours. My mother, who is 81, has been unable to eat solid food for a month and in the last week, has hardly eaten anything at all. Dad felt unable to cope because she was refusing any help he offered so called More...

My thoughts are with you, Mary. Seeing our parents decline is so difficult.

When we put my husband in the nursing home, crystal would come be after work every night and we would watch jeperody together. Visitors at the other bed would marvel at how many Ed got right. I went at lunch and stayed until 9pm, crystal came at lease once a day for an hour or so, but don't try to stayall the time. I had a heart attack while I was in the room with him. Lucky he didn't notice.

Oh, you are so right. Winter has hit the midwest. We had our biggest snow in 5 years. About 8 inches at my house and up to 10 in other areas around the St. Louis area. Happy Holidays.
