I've never been good at numbers

I actually do love numbers, and excel and all that! Well, it's August 2, 2009 and I just started thinking about my Mom, who happened to be my best friend and savior!

Back in 12/9/1991 I had by 2nd child. My son Mark. It had been some years since my 1st child, Lindsey, 6/83, but I knew when I had Lindsey that I wanted more children! Unfortunately it didn't work out quite the way I thought it would be with my first hubby..but not to worry!

I moved back to Westlake, OH from fabulous Denver, CO, with my darling little Lindsey, only around 5 yrs old, since my Mom and Dad were there. So I moved back here in 1989. I met Bob, my husband, at my Dad's company, and the rest is history! We had Mark in 12/91 and Katherine in 3/93. Double blessed! Especially since my Mom was here and came over here everyday to help me out and keep me from going insane! We had such fun-I guess I would say I got my zest for laughter and fun from my Mom for sure!

It was so unexpected when she suddenly passed August 9th 1994. But this blog is not about sadness, but about having fun! And that we did!

We laughed hysterically one day when we decided to chop carrots and celery in the food processor she brought over! We screamed as the veggies shot out of the top of that darn machine! We loved our coffee together right when Oprah came on too! My Mom was so untuitive, I swear she knew what was going to happen before it happened! That is one special person!

She raised 5 children and still had the passion to help me out! I will treasure that time for the rest of my life!

So think about what you are blessed with and be thankful and grateful!
