OK, OK, I am not a whiz at this stuff,ok, I am challenged, I do try and I found out I must have hit the edit Html button next to compose. At least I figured it out, it was driving me crazy. Now I can go cook dinner~

Time to relax...maybe NOT

Ok, I am flying blind here, my pictures are not showing, just HTML text...I do not know how to fix this. SO much for relaxing. I had gone into settings and wanted to try updated editor, until I realized there was no spell check and now I can't get it back to where I was...HELP ANYONE???

At least the pictures show when I hit preview, but I can't comment on each one.
I was going to do a little post on a couple of Christmas gifts I received. Do you think my family was trying to tell me something? I put the CD's on my i pod and the Escape one is so beautiful and relaxing. I played it while I took a nice long soak in the tub.

I am really lost here as to how to fix my problem, when I am in new post mode I only see text, not pictures. Has anyone else had this?

Saying Goodbye....

It is with mixed emotions that I share with you what I did on Sunday....with storm warnings up and down the east coast we gathered our family and drove to Boston, TD Bank Garden, home of the Bruins and Celtics.
My family and the families of 650 soldiers.

The overhead was showing pictures of training and other missions. Not to mention the images of Old Glory.

What an impressive group. These are soldiers defending our country and all the rights we all have. My son is part of the 101 st Field Artillery Battalion. It is the oldest field artillery regiment in the United States Army dating back to Dec. 13, 1636 when it was organized as the South Regiment by Massachusetts General Court.

My son served in Iraq and has been home for 18 months only to head to Afghanistan for a year. He also went to Somalia as a Marine. See the mixed emotions, pride and great sadness.
This is our son and his daughter, my sad sack, she knows how long a year is! My daughter and her two sons and daughter. My family. The people who hold my heart. I know my son is doing something he believes in and loves, but damn, I hate to see him go.

Ben and Kaylee

I am so proud of our son. What Mom would not be proud of her handsome, brave son?
I know God will keep him safe and bring him back to us....and I have always believed in fate.
Now he leaves home on Wednesday, his orders started on Sunday, but we have Monday and Tuesday together...now you see why I wanted to just savor my holiday time this year?
Stay safe my son!
