The Heart Attack That Almost Was

I started this blog several weeks ago to talk to other moms about my journey to become green.  My hope was to share information and maybe inspire others.  Being healthy, taking care of the planet and giving back are all very important to me and that’s why I typically post on my blog daily.

On a normal day, I am up at 5:45 AM.  By 8:30 AM, I have gotten my son up, made sure he was ready for the day, cooked him breakfast and driven him to school.  The beds are made, sinks and toilets…

Heart to Heart

I’m having a bad day.  I had a bad day yesterday, and the day before.  I am feeling off my game.  And I don’t like it.

I spent yesterday afternoon in a cardiologist’s office.  For once, it wasn’t for my father, but for me.  Daddy has had a couple of sets of stents placed in the grafted veins of his heart.  The first round was in January, and again in April.  He is fine now and is feeling much better, but the effects of sitting in the cardiac unit of a hospital have shaken me…

A Child Died Today

A child died today.



A funny little boy with an abundance of freckles and a unique way of pronouncing his r’s. A boy with an infectious smile and a love of Poke’mon and video games. He was a son, brother, friend, loved by many, missed by all.
