Shaking my head

Just in case you’re wondering what the Pink Cup Family does on a Saturday afternoon (after returning from the barn), I provide you the following glimpse. Apparently, we just laze about in the living room discussing things that have little or no relevance to what any of us is actually doing, and Frances’s wit simplyContinue reading “Shaking my head”

Please, do not say that!

Every summer, we have the opportunity to have a support worker, through a local non-profit organization, take Frances out into the community for fun activities and maybe to socialize. It is, of course, considered respite for the family, and we’ve never told Frances. I really do think of it as a great opportunity for herContinue reading “Please, do not say that!”

It would seem that my posts have slowed down…But, don’t worry, I haven’t abandoned my posting. (Haha, see what I did there?) Life does get busy here, but I do want to write more often.

She used to enjoy Valentine’s Day (although it was probably access to the candy, now that I think about it). I can’tContinue reading “On Valentine’s Day”

This must be Thursday…

The weather here has been ridiculously cold. We’ve all bundled up under extra blankets for windchills in the -20s and -30s.

In fact, my highly active,Continue reading “This must be Thursday…”

My blog is still active

I’ve been away from the blog for quite some time while recovering from an unexpected surgery and complications of serious illness.
