Not a real fan of roller coasters,
I prefer a smooth ride
with a little hill for just a
little thrill now and then.

Today, the ride as a member of the
sandwich generation...
taking our son to set up his first
checking account. One of those

steps that takes him a little
more into the world and out
of our little nest.

Also today my 92 yr old MIL
is sleeping on the sofa,
not feeling her perky self.

She is feeling blue.

blue dreamworld.

They do have some lovely thing.

oh yeah...
I'm choosing to~

Throw my hands up into the air
and enjoy it.
Although you might hear a
scream or two!

WOW! All I "heard" was 92 year-old sleeping on the couch. I wouldn't be able to sleep a wink. She must be a trooper. Happy Blue Monday.

So much of life is how we choose to live it, so I'll take throwing my hands up and hoping I catch some cotton candy on the way down!

Morning Candy, Love the bedroom, everything I see is beautiful.
Letting go of our children is a hard thing, but then we made it and so will he. I am screaming also.



I have seen this bedroom in a magazine. I just love it in all it's shabbiness!
