Mike & Kayla


Family

Congratulations Mike and Kayla! My cousin Mike found his forever love. Five years ago, he brought his new girlfriend Kayla as his date to Weber Wedding Weekend. First time I met my newest cousin to-be and a kindred spirit in many ways. I couldn’t be happier for these two! CONGRATS!

Weird


Depression, Family, Personal

I feel really weird right now. Last night I was bubbly and filled with possibility, a million ideas for my friend’s theater company. I had a great day of work. Did a wee bit of writing. Went to bed late with a head full of thoughts. So this morning I wake up, my normal BLAH. […]

Mom Freedom Tour Day #3


Family

Mom Freedom Tour Day #3. I met mom and her roommate at the home this morning for lemon/cheese danish and coffee. Hung out for a while. I’m sad that her roommate is sad that mom is leaving. Her roommate is a lifer for that place and I doubt she will get another roommate quite like […]

Mom Freedom Tour Day #2


Family

Mom Freedom Tour Day #2! I brought mom back to Weber Wonderland and we watched a little bit of Property Brothers and had lunch. Exciting, I know. The big trip out in the world was a visit to Barnes & Noble. We enjoyed some delicious hot beverages and shared a piece of red velvet cheesecake […]

Like Mother Like Daughter: Brigth Ligth?


Family, Randomments

Like Mother Like Daughter: Brigth Ligth? I just did a quick search in my archives for moments I blogged about how I hate my cellphone because the charging port ALWAYS breaks and won’ t hold a charge and these are the links I found. Brigth Ligth…take 3? Matters Needing Attention CHARGE! Oh how I wish […]

Content


Family, Personal

Last night around 2 am (after eating the last of HWMMS Chinese food in the fridge) I was feeling pretty content. How to make your husband angry: eat his leftover Chinese food at 2am. — Jennifer L.S. Weber (@AllThingsJen) April 21, 2017 Oops. Content? That’s something I haven’t felt in a while, geez! And as […]

Mom Freedom Tour Day #1


Family

Mom Freedom Tour Day #1. Long car ride with puppies down Route 39 to the Charbroil. My strawberry/vanilla milkshake craving has been satisfied. I’ve been drinking these babies since I was 16. Also had curly fries, of course. Now, home for a rest. At least for mom and the puppies. Save Save Save

Mom Update (Part 27?)


Family

Mom Update (Part 27?) This afternoon’s appointment for her ankle went well. Her cast is off and a new boot is on – which is made for walking! Woo hoo! Another appointment with surgeon is scheduled for Tuesday to review accident injuries…getting things organized for release hopefully early next week. Until then, she’s on the […]

Baby Chuck


Family, HWMMS

This picture of HWMMS makes me want to birth his baby and have a mischievous 10 year old of our very own. Which is funny because at the same time I was trying to take a photo of this photo to get online, there was a commercial for Crayola (I think) where these two kiddos […]

He is Lord!


Family, Holidays, Music

He is Lord! Happy Easter! I’m sitting here sniffing the amazing hyacinths I picked from the garden and HWMMS said “now that is the smell of Easter.” (I agree.) And I can’t get the hymn from Church “He Is Lord” out of my head. (Obvious reasons.) Aside: I have NO idea how to spell hyacinth, […]

Easter


Family, Holidays, HWMMS, Personal

Easter. HWMMS and I aren’t really Easter people.  I wonder how that came to be. I’m ALL THINGS HOLIDAY AND CELEBRATING AND AND… Our very first year together I took him to the Broadway Market for the first time and made Easter Brunch for him and Mama Weber. Actually, looking back at this post makes […]

Mom Update


Family

HWMMS decorated Mom’s cast for her with a roller skate, not unlike myself, my mother should never, ever consider being on roller skates. Cute, eh? Anyhow, it’s about one more week until her appointment with the surgeon to see if this cast can be removed. IF (when) it is removed she gets the walking boot—-hurrah! […]

Gut Punch


Family, Health & Wellness, HWMMS, Personal

Gut Punch. You know that feeling. That punch you in the gut feeling of just BAMYESTHATSITGULP. Well, I just experienced it. And I think I know why I’ve been so obsessed with watching the Kennedy story. Just now, I finished watching “After Camelot” “Have a family it’s the only important thing and the thing that […]

Again? Really?


Family, Mind and Spirit, Music, Personal

Yep. AGAIN. REALLY. Now I’m starting to think maybe it’s not really as much of a coincidence as I thought the first time—-MAYBE the radio station plays this song all the time every day and I just don’t know because I rarely listen to the radio. Although if this is true, the radio station should […]

Like Mother, Like Daughter


Family

Like Mother, Like Daughter. LOOK! We are having SO MUCH FUN! Said no one ever while visiting their mother in a sad, depressing nursing/rehab home while waiting since 5:30am for a doctor to maybe make an appearance… Ugh. Poor mom. She was a good sport today though. Some days spirits are higher than others.

Mirror, Mirror


Depression, Family, Health & Wellness, Personal

Mirror, Mirror. And Just Like That Off the Roller Coaster. I really hate myself sometimes. I start doing good things for myself and moving forward and then I hit a wall, get stuck in the muck and erase any forward progress. it happens all the time. It happens with healthy eating, healthy habits, writing…you name […]

Healing


Family

This photo was taken heading into hour six hanging with the mom at her doctor appointments at ECMC. We started the morning off, early, and got RIGHT IN to the first appointment (not even a waiting period for me to go grab coffee!) And then right into the xray and right into exam room and […]

Time


Family

Happy March! Day 29: Time A nice way to pass the time visiting with mom is playing board games. Growing up we played lots and lots of board games. So many games my brother and I would create our own. (This is also something my adorable almost 13 year old niece does which warms my […]

Lessons


Depression, Family, Mind and Spirit, Music, Personal, Synchronicities

If there’s one lesson I’ve learned this year during my MeMyselfI journey, it’s been to LISTEN and GO WITH THE FLOW. Yesterday, I visited my mom at the nursing home. I wasn’t there for more than a few minutes before I felt physically sick. Headache return, wanting to vomit. I’m just a pile of a […]

Kindness


Family

Kindness. Mom update. Hanging out and healing. Chest tube was removed and her lung is doing better. Blood clot in her leg being watched. Still in quite a bit of pain, trying to figure out moving around with broken collarbone, not fun. Plan in place to move to rehab facility…tomorrow or Tuesday. Keith update: feels […]
