Lifes Little Surprises

“Stop worrying,” she tells me.

“Take a half a xanax,” she tells me.

“This is no big deal,” she tells me, as our patio furniture gets flung around and our roof is hammered with tree branches.

The next thing I hear is a loud snap and crack.

I then decided that a WHOLE xanax would be best and lil Gracie and I headed for bed.

Life with the princess continues to be fun.

Hope all of you are well.

I’ll catch ya next time, “looking at life from my shoes.”

I'm a retired special ed teacher, born in upstate NY, who spent most of my adult life in the SF/Bay Area and moved to the Olympic Peninsula of WA in June of 2017. At the encouragement of family and friends, who followed my silliness on my FB page, I started this blog a few years ago. I try to keep my topics as humorous as possible (because I believe "LIFE" is pretty serious these days), but will, on occasion write about more solemn subjects. I sincerely appreciate all who take the time and effort to read and make comments and am truly humbled when people actually "like" what I write. I do not participate in the "Wordpress awards" because I feel "awarded" when individuals actually read me and comment, but sincerely appreciate all of you who have considered me "award worthy" and thank you from the bottom of my heart. Hugs, Lucie

    1. My dear blogging friend, Mitch. So good to see your name. I am well, thank you. It’s been a challenging time for me (health-wise), but I think it has for many of us. I need to take my sense of humor and put it on my blog….just not too energetic, some days, but I miss my interactions with my blogging community of friends. I hope all is well with you and the family, Mitch! Thanks for the stop-by. :>)

  1. Oh wow! Glad you guys are safe. My Mom died a year ago November 21, the same date that my Dad died. She turned 100 on May 4, 2021. She had congestive heart failure and dementia. The last two years before she died were just horrible.

    I’m in the process of retiring…just have to train my replacement and then I am done. I hope you and Princess are doing well and have great holidays!
