Mall Shooting

Back about two and a half weeks ago there was a shooting in an Omaha mall. It was a young, 19 year old guy. How sad that he would take the lives of others including himself. What a selfish act. I feel so bad for the families of the ones who lost their lives in this tragic event.

More Shopping

As I was wrapping gifts I remembered one more person I still had to buy for. So, today I will head out to try and find the perfect gift for her. She is my sister. She's getting harder to buy for because she is one of the fortunate ones who has just about everything she needs or wants. But it's a special time between her and myself when we exchange gifts.

Saturday I heated up some hot chocolate not realizing how much was actually in my cup. My cup had a lid on it. I was talking with my husband and grabbed my cup and took a big gulp. It was scalding hot. I spit it out of my mouth immediately. It went all over the floor. I went over and put my tongue under cold water. It really hurt. Now I have blisters under my tongue on the right side of my mouth. It is so painful. It's like have several canker sores. I will be sure happy when this heals up.

When my husband and I were dating he owned a snowmobile. He would come and pick me up and we would ride that thing from one town to another through the ditches. It was so much fun.

I heard on the news the other day how men over 50 should be going in for regular physicals or checkups and that many don't do this. They are encouraging these men to go and get everything checked out. Women are most generally good about going to the dr. once a year and men should also do the same.


We hear so often about physical abuse happening with younger couples or even middle aged people but we don't hear too often about the elderly living like that. Well, I know of a couple that this has been going on now for two years. We just found out about that today. We also found out that the husband hit his elderly wife 3 times today and got arrested. His wife is such a sweetie and he is just too hot headed. I'm so glad he is away from her because she doesn't deserve that, nobody does.

As I'm making Christmas goodies I should be watching a nice Christmas movie but instead I decided to watch Disturbia. At first I thought because of the title that it would definitely not be a movie I would want to see but it's been really good. It sort of reminds me of the Hitchcock movie Rear Window. They really aren't the same but there are a few similarities. I would recommend this movie to be seen.

Sunday, December 9, 2007


Last weekend when we had that ice and snow storm it was dangerous to even walk outside. We have heard of several people falling and breaking their arm or hip. There was even a fatality in Des Moines as he walked out of his office. How sad. I know we sure tried to break up the ice around our place but it wasn't easy. It's starting to get alittle better now.
