We were shocked when my wife spoke to one of her sons about an accident he was in last Sunday.

The phone call you never want to get. This morning, while I was out cutting the neighbor's lawn and my wife was gone to the library to pick up some magazines that sell used for only a dime each, we got a message from one of her sons, on the answering mach

I cried last night

I never cry, never really have. I'm just not a terribly emotional person, sometimes its helpful in my job. Last night I cried, not over a patient or a particularly sad incident but simply over the fact that I had to be there. Work has gotten so awful rec

Old dogs - new tricks!

WHO SAYS YOU can't teach an old dog new tricks? This old dog is still capable of learning new tricks! The photo you see here is a 5-tonne rough terrain forklift truck - and guess who's just been given a licence to drive it? This is the biggest forkli

Can I consider myself lucky?

Yeah and if we look at Merriam-Webster dictionary for that word, it means “resulting in good by chance”. This experience of mine seems so unbelievable for me until now. We all know this “Get a chance to win this…” sc

Things may be looking up

Well, they might be looking up for us. After months of either just my hubby working or not finding work, or me just working, now it seems that things are slowly changing. The company my husband worked for over the holidays hired him again permanently, alth

Your Family Tree - What Should You Avoid?

It is only natural that, as we get older, we come to grips with our mortality. We're going to die. Will people remember me? My ancestors died before me. What can I do to become acquainted with them before I "join them?" We check our records, our photos, o

The Windows 10 Operating System took away Windows DVD player and the tech support could not remotely access my PC because of my firewall.

It's only logical that I do not bother getting Microsoft to fix what they broke when they upgraded my PC. If I had it my way I would have Windows 10 and keep all the programs that Windows 10 removed. I had Windows 7 but I wanted the apps and so I upgraded

DPS moved to a new location 10 miles South-East of the current location.

We drove to the old location where we thought DPS was and it was abandoned. It had been moved to a distant location near the outskirts of Dallas, South-East of it's recent location. I had to get my form to fill out, and wait for my number to come

Trauma Blog #4: Moving Forward

While dealing with trauma I came to a point where I realized it was necessary for me to move beyond coping and surviving; I needed to focus on my personal goals and thrive. But I was in a rut of depression, behavioral issues, isolation and traumatic

Its hard sometimes, when a wayward nephew comes knocking at our door.

Last night my older brother heard a knocking at his front door. It was his son. He had wandered into town unexpectedly. I was called by my brother about this news today. Later that same morning, today, there came a knock at our front doo

A 40 gallon gas water heater full of water can weigh around 450 to 500 pounds, so why does this bother me?

The floor was getting wet before we replaced the water heater, gas powered in our home, and now there seems to be some concern by myself, due to the floor making a bit of noise as I walk across the threshold between the hall and the kitchen where that 400

You can do harm to yourself while dreaming.

Nightmares can be very vivid and seem real to the dreamer, even if they last only a few seconds in real time but seem longer during that time. Have you ever dreamed you were having a fight with someone or something and woke up with your hand in pa

It's so hot in Texas today, my chocolate bars are melting.

You can't just pay for your candy bars and expect them not to melt while you drive back home, if you live in Texas, that is. I wanted to buy a case of those new Snickers Bars with Almond. They are very good. Like Mars Bars. But If I bough
