It's evening here in Missouri. I'm sitting here in my house, trying to knit pieces to an afghan, listening to the cats fight, and thinking about my last year. For grins I went and re-read the post I wrote for my 39th birthday. It makes me laugh and laugh. Oh Sarah, you had no idea … Continue reading …and then I turned 40.

My 39th year
Hello hello! We are at the END of September. Can you believe that?! I certainly can't. I keep saying it over and over, but I can't really believe how fast it feels this year is flying by.

I had (have) a long way to go. I started this year wanting to be healthier not only physically, but mentally … Continue reading the great depression

The other day I tried to figure out exactly when I … Continue reading brand new
