Personal Statement


  1. January 2024 The year started out with us relaxing on New Year’s Day, recovering from the weekend with the kids. Also, Chad had to start his prep for his colonoscopy that was coming up. I put a note on the cabinet door and the fridge to remind him not to eat anything when he had the munchies. Mom dropped of a crucifix that Grandma Ann has ordered for all of her grandchildren. She wanted each one to have one in their home. It’s beautiful. On 1/2/2024, we went to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Breese for Chad’s Colonoscopy. He did well and they did not find any issues. On Friday, 1/5/2024, we had to bowl. It snowed pretty good in the afternoon and evening. We got a few inches, but it didn’t last too long the next day. It was a pretty snow. On Saturday, when Chad got off of work, we met with my cousin Jake Blumenstein at Jansen Chevrolet in Germantown. Chad found a car he liked at the dealership in Breese and since they are affiliated with each other, Jake got to show us the car. We liked it so we told him that we would buy it. Later that evening, we cashed in our rain check tickets to see the movie “Wonka”. It was a pretty good movie. We met with Jake again on Wednesday, 1/10/2024 to sign the papers and pick up the car. We didn’t really get a chance to drive it anywhere until Saturday, 1/13, when we took it to Chad’s parents for a visit. We noticed the locks needed to be fixed so it went back into the shop later in the month. On Wednesday, 1/17/2024, I made beef bone broth. I also canned some homemade chili beans. Both projects turned out great! I used the fat from the beef broth to make tallow. I had learned about it’s use for a moisturizer and wanted to try it. Mom had told me that she can tolerate sourdough bread, so I pick up some. For lunch, I had one of my favorite winter meals: grilled cheese and home made tomato soup that I had canned this summer. It was delicious! I was able to tolerate it pretty well (gluten intolerance). I’m so excited to eat bread again! U was back in the kitchen again Saturday, 1/20. I tried a home made cough syrup recipe made with onions and honey. It was edible. We will see if it works for cough the next time one of us gets a cold. Later that night, Chad and I went to the movies to see “The Color Purple” and then we went to Texas Roadhouse to cash in part of a gift certificate from my cousin Shawn and Jessica for photographing their daughter’s engagement. It was SO cold this weekend, but we enjoyed the date night. Our Sunday was spent a home. Chad chilled and watched YouTube. I made some turtles and caramel from Zurliene’s recipe again. It was so good! I also worked on rendering down the tallow to get rid of the impurities this week. I enjoyed another Scrapbooking Retreat in Fairview Heights the weekend of 1/25/2024-1/28/2024. Lynn and I went over there on Thursday night. I worked on Chad’s family album. On my day off Wednesday, 1/31, I photographed my parent’s house to get it ready to sell. It was such as pretty day out. I tried out the sun roof in the new car. The fresh air was great! Later, I tried my hand at making white sandwich bread. It turned out delicious! I also started a sourdough starter. This should be interesting.

  5. A Sky Full of Stars Collection Biggie A Sky Full of Stars Embellishment Mini Borders A Sky Full of Stars Embellishment Mini Clusters Grow Old Along With Me Silhouettes She Drew New Lines Alpha Pack A special memory I have with my dad is when he would call me out to our north facing front porch, usually on a hot summer night to watch the Northern lights. He would tell me that if we sat real still and quiet we would see them dancing low on the horizon. the lights were mesmerizing and magical as we studied the movement of light and shadow within them. truly very special moments. Dad also knew all the stars and constellations by name. He taught me how to identify the big dipper, orion and his belt, and many others. The story goes that one night when I was 5 or 6, we were out watching the stars, as we gazed at the heavens, I asked dad "where do I fit into all of this"?, Dad would tell me later as I was grown that he was amazed and speechless by such a profound question coming from so young a child..

  18. Journaling: The calm, happiness and joy I feel when everyday is a “me” day is overwhelming. No longer working outside the house, driving, or raising babies has unleashed a freedom in me to be as creative as I was born to be! All the art supplies I collected over the years are finally being used to create mixed media projects, cards, tags, and many other crafts. I simply jam to a great playlist or listen to a fantastic audiobook and let the show begin!

She worked really hard to thwart my efforts. I told her one day I would scrap those photos. That day has come!
  21. Journaling: Things always work out for me. Seriously. Not bragging, but they do. What’s funny is that people who really know me would disagree. Living with a degenerative neurological condition isn’t what you typically think of as “everything working out for me”. But it still does. I either win or I learn something and do it again. No worries. There is always something to be thankful for! Gathering by KK, Shadow Styles by SNU, Botanical by BMU, Rustic Reflections Brushes by LLO
