2018: Two weeks in

These past couple of weeks have left me verklempt (overcome with emotion). We’ve gone from tsuris (troubles) to nachas (joy) and back and forth a few times over. But hey, all is good. No kvetching (complaining) here… still quite grateful just to be… In my glass-half full world, the temples are gray, yet the mind is still childish (es iz groi di pai’eh un narish di dai’eh). Now look, sit! Enjoy some shots.

Ice crystals on the car window, early morning… sometimes, cold is beautiful. Who knew?
New Years Day T-Bone… not in the plans. And in one second, the car becomes bubkas (worthless, nothing, zero)
My left foot… this boot is made for walking? Oy! I needed this like I need a lochen kup (whole in my head)!
Okay, we can do this! And my bubbaleh’s (little one’s) , they are better than fine ❤
Blech! We had to have one more vermin sighting, right before we left… I was going to put a little chalk outline around him for management, but then I threw up (brechen) a little in my throat before I could do it…
Me and my Mrs., and that smile of hers. Gets me every time! Now that’s a “we have a new home” smile! Shana punim (beautiful face)!
My first cuppa in our new home… Mornin’ joe
Gatsby is the ruler of his domain, and after a squirrel, or a bird, or a piece of sky???

So friends, for today and this week, may you all be a mensch (decent and honorable person) and may you only run into mensches.

    1. I am on the mend, Catie, and thankfully my girls, they didn’t even get a bruise or a scratch! What a horrifying scene… but thank you love! The new home is wonderful and we feel so grateful and hopeful. I can even get the Mrs. to laugh again! xoxoxo #pointshoot


  1. Oh, so sorry, Lisa. But that’s just the way life is. You never know what you’re gonna get. LOL But I do love your humor and encouraging attitude about it all. Makes me 🙂 THANK YOU!


    1. Hey Laura, don’t I know it! Just when you think all is good, WHAMMO! FInding the perspective and teachable moments is key. Laughter, even more so! I’m happy that I can make you smile! I’m smiling now as I type! xoxoxo ❤

  2. Great photos! Sorry about the car and your foot. If it’s any consolation we just paid the appliance repairman $70 to tell us we need a new washing machine. But on the plus side, we’re having a dinner party this weekend! Life is always full of ups and downs. May your ups be higher than you’re downs are low.

  3. Oh dear for the smash! Hope your foots ok!? I’d be a bit pukey over a mouse find but well done for an attempted chalk drawing of humour! ‪Thank you for linking up to the #familyfunlinky‬

  5. I am so happy you have your new home!!! Yipee! The ice crystals amaze me I have never seen them in real life. Thank you so much for sharing this with us for #ablogginggoodtime Just to let you know that sadly Catie (Spectrum Mum) will no longer be a co-host for #ablooginggoodtime, we will have a new co-host this Thursday and you can still link up through Katie or myself. Thanks, love Mackenzie

    1. Thank you Mackenzie! We are happy too! I did read about Catie and we messaged each other. Poor thing, she has a lot in her hands ahead. 💕 I’m wishing her and her family well. Love you, Mac! 😘💕 #ablogginggoodtime


    1. Thank you, Hayley! It just has to get better! I am happy to see good luck and bad luck as intertwined. The foot, as of yesterday, is now in a brace and I’m off to PT! So we are all improving. And, I agree, that is my fave pic of us! ❤ Thank you! xoxo ❤
