Loss and Ramblings

One of my mom's good friends husband of over 20 years passed. Since my mom told me I have been thinking about, what would I do if I lost Mr. J? I have always been a very independent woman and lived on my own for several years before moving in with Mr. J. I know that it would be a financial change, but  have been blessed with a good job that I would be able to maintain my household.  I think that it would be more emotional for me, of course.  I know that I would have a support of my family and friends during my emotional crisis. It would be hard to have someone around you that you have a special connection with just go away. I guess it is like that when anyone that you love dies. Even though Mr. J and I have been only been married for 1 year, we have been together for 10. He is a huge piece of my life. With that piece gone, how would I be as a person?  The thought of ever losing Mr. J, has me planning for the future by looking into  more life insurance and writing a will. These are things that I thought older people did, not a person in their 30's. With marriage there comes new responsiblilty and planning can assist with the unforseen. With all of the planning, there would nothing that would replace what Mr. J means to me. I know that my mom's friend is a strong person and has a strong support system in place. Even with all that, I  know nothing will replace her husband. I will continue to keep her and family in my prayers.

  2. When is "going green" going to be the norm and not a trend? (Earth Day is tomorrow)
  3. When is ok to eat a hot fudge sundae for breakfast?
  4. We can find a way for a man to get an erection, but we can not find a cure for breast cancer.
  5. When a man speaks his mind, he is being assertive. When a woman speaks her mind is being a _____.

The J's Family Stay-cation

This past summer we did not take a large vacation, but a few long weekends. The last long weekend we had was to finish out our summer before the school year began. We took a short road trip to see the Newport Aquarium and the Cincinnati Children's Museum.  The ride was nice, as nice it could be with a 5 year old in the back seat asking if we were there yet.  The hubby and I had hoped that she would be distracted with her tablet or take  a nap on the way down so that we could chit-chat, but I guess she was to excited to do either of those.

Our first stop was the Newport Aquarium. Heck I was even excited there. It is not like that I have not been there before, I basically wanted to see the new stingray exhibit. The Newport area not only has an awesome aquarium but there is a mall with little odds and ends and it is even right off the river for an excellent view. Gabby could hardly contain herself upon arrival. We used every bit of the 2 1/2 hours that we spent there and it was well …
