Madelines Memory

A Little Bit About.....

My photo
Madeline was my grandmother on my mother's side. She was an amazing little Irish woman. How blessed we were to have her. Not a day goes by that I don't miss her. I am the wife of my bestfriend, the mother of four amazing kids ages 25, 22, 17 and 4. I am a grandma to 2 beautiful little boys and the mom-in-law to a terrific man. I come from a big wonderful family. My parents are my idols. My dad was always the silent one and my mom was the "tough" one. I have so much admiration for them and love being their daughter. I have 4 sisters and one brother, but I only have 3 surviving sisters now. My sister Michele passed away suddenly in 1989. I married into an amazing Italian family. I believe in God and Angels, and Ghosts. Not bad ones, but ones that just can't decide if they should stay or go. I believe that if you want something bad enough, you just need to believe and it will be yours. I believe that everyone means something to someone and this life without you would be miserable.

I live in Southern California and I absolutely love it here....except for Earthquakes. I know they happen all over the world, but we have had sooooo many recently that I am getting really nervous. I work out of the home 3 days a week, not too far, but far enough and I am on the 3rd floor of a really old building. I don't want to be away from my children if and when the big one hits!!! I know I cannot live in hiding, but man oh man....I have to just not think about it or I will go nuts!
My hunny and I were grocery shopping last night when we had another one.....I couldn't feel the ground moving, but all of the shelves were swaying and rocking. I was trying to debate, do I stay put? Or run like a crazy woman out of the building? Needless to say, I stayed, just made sure I was in the center of the isle in case anything jumped off of the shelves!! Whew, nothing fell.
Of course my hunny had taken the little one to wash his hands in the bathroom and didn't even know that we had just had an earthquake......MEN!!!!
Today is my day off and since my daughter is out of school this week (summer school starts next week) we are going to the beach. I really need some sunshine and just to "chill". I just hope the "Big One" doesn't hit and cause a sunami!!! EEEKKKK. I hope you all have a wonderful week and wish me luck!!!

  1. Hello love, where are you? No postings lately? What's up with that? I've been babysitting a few days a week for Mae and loving it! We are all fine, miss you though! I picked up a few things for you and I'm either coming your way or will mail them to you. Still don't have a date for frankie's return but you should try to come for a visit. I'm only going to be gone a couple days. Love you!!! sister
