So glad to have that over with! The studying was all consuming but it certainly got me through these past few months. This is the first morning I haven't had to wake up to take a timed practice test for the past few weeks. This was for my Instrument Rating for flying, it was the … Continue reading I Passed!!
On my last blog, was shocked and so upset - still am. J and his W came over for a social distancing brunch, outside, with my boys. This is going to royally suck, my boys are in their 20's and they just don't really comprehend what J is about to undergo. He's optimistic, he's always … Continue reading Devastated
Trying to power through this whole thing by studying for my IFR, it might be the slow road since I'm older and the practical is on ILS/DME runways with the last thing being GPS approaches. I have decent hand/eye, not just for my age. We've been on the SIM, yesterday we headed out in the … Continue reading Really 2020?? It gets worse??

Not sure if I ever mentioned on this blog that my youngest son is deaf with a cochlear implant? He decided to get one his junior year of high school, starting out his first week of his senior year recovering from it. He always qualified, it was a decision I didn't want to make for … Continue reading Mom-Mode
Been a rough week indoors with all the smoke, still not as rough as the people in Paradise. I keep thinking it's OK to go outside, then park to walk to lunch and can feel it in my throat. My heart actually hurts? Don't know how to explain that besides it's tight. Overall, I'm pretty … Continue reading Jump start my smokey brain
This was supposed to be a trip to see if I could stay here and possibly enroll in their music program, our house is a few blocks from campus. Instead, my son wants me to leave early because he's so defiant. I tip toe around him, can't bring up work or school or I'm not … Continue reading Hard Trip
