Out with the Old, In with the New to Me Plus a Home for Team TLC While Laughing Out Loud

January 24 2020

One of these was purchased in 2009, facilitated in teaching dozens of workshops in 2009 – 2012, was used to write, organize, and publish 4 books from 2012 – 2019, and is considered a dinosaur by those who work at Apple.

One of these is a 2014 version that a sweet, angel of a friend gifted to me as she just recently upgraded. Can you tell the difference? HA!

What a blessing it is to use the x and z key, the mouse pad again!! Plus (huge plus), not having to wait minutes for a page to open or a function to complete, with continual freezing. I feel productive again!! Ah, sweet technology relief!! Thank you, thank you, thank you K!!!! xoxo

The unpacking continues. The Team TLC letters found a home. Not sure if I’ll keep them there, yet, it works for now.

I was hoping to be finished by February 1st. I’ll definitely have all boxes emptied by then. It’s just finding a place for everything, organizing things, and donating what is no longer needed.

When you open the calculator to make a phone call. Um ….. You get a lovely big number, but doesn’t work to make a call. Made me laugh out loud. 🤣😜

My Compliments


December 10 2013:

I am creating a blog post and video this week where I ask for big help. I rarely ask for help so this is interesting! Will let y’all know when it’s ready! Until then, may this bring a smile to your face …

My “compliments” from T & L last night.

Thomas: You make good meatloaf, You make good snowballs and I love you.

Lillian: I like your Christmas socks, I love your meatloaf, I like your way of improvising. I like your gifts, I like how you believe in fairies and I like your food. You’re Great!

Why not make a compliment card for someone you love today? We try to do it once per week! It just feels GOOD!

Looking at Lights Adventures and The Romano Duo and Amazing Lunch

Just back from driving around and looking at all the lights. First a stop for fries for Lillian and a chocolate shake for Thomas.

I had my treat with me already … A lovely big, box of soft tissues so I could blow my nose every few seconds! A nasty cold hitting me just as we finished Lillian’s book …. Hmmmmmm …. At least it waited until we were finished.

What fun seeing the blow up decorations dancing in the wind! The lit trees were absolutely beautiful!! Looked like lit dancing trees! xoxo

Romano Duo Visit

May 8 2017:

We look like a blooming flower! Last day for The Romano Duo visit and I get a wee bit of respite.

Thomas and Lillian are off to enjoy swimming and dinner at The Nugget.

How much can I do (or not do) in about six hours? Letting go and finding out …. xoxo

Respite: Twas a ride for sure!! I already knew I was going to stay home as I haven’t had the place to myself in a year and a half. So …. did a wee bit of yoga, sobbed and released, read, sobbed and released, wrote a poem, sobbed and released. I truly know how to party hardy!! HA!

It was a full day of much connecting and releasing. I even released in my sleep that night too!

Because I Like It and I Can


January 28 2016:

Going for a walk and hanging out in trees. Thomas and I had a wonderful walk this afternoon.

Thomas’ friend told him that he should live in a mansion when he earns a million dollars. Thomas told him he’d be living in a tiny place just like where we live now. “Why?”, his friend asked. Thomas answered, “Because I like it and I can.” Love, sweet love. xoxo

Letting Go Burning Ceremony

“People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

.. from the blog … “We wrote stories, beliefs, habits, and fears on strips of paper. It was such a wonderful, blissful feeling sitting with both of them doing this. They really, truly understood the process and what types of things to write on the strips. I was so moved. There was a beautiful excitement in the air. A magical anticipation of ….”

“This book represents the fruition of a desire. Yet, within that is the message that the steps along the journey of ones desire are what comprises life itself.

It’s sure to inspire with great quotes; almost all of which were chosen by Thomas ….. for ages eight to eighty and beyond!”
