Poetry Morning

By Myrna CG Mibus / April 9, 2017

The last several days have been full of many wonderful moments and also way too many tough ones. It’s life. It’s not always easy. I’m feeling overwhelmed. I am feeling like I am failing on several levels – parenting and being a kind spouse high on the list. But I am doing my best to stay task…

Making Space

By Myrna CG Mibus / February 7, 2017

As most of you know, 2016 was a tough year for me with my Dad passing away and other things. I needed to concentrate on my family so I put my writing on a back burner. I’m okay with my decision to not write much last year. That said, things have settled down enough now…

It’s August now, almost September

By Myrna CG Mibus / August 29, 2016

It’s August now, almost September, and I have not written a blog post in four months. A lot has happened in this short period of time. My Dad passed away in July and while I am glad he is now at peace the weeks leading up to his death were some of the worst. There’s way more…

Dove chocolate wrapper saying Quote your Dad

Quote Your Dad

By Myrna CG Mibus / April 11, 2016

I found a lone piece of Dove dark chocolate in the pantry today so decided I’d better eat it. I love Dove chocolates for two reasons – they simply taste good and there’s a saying on the inside of each foil wrapper. The sayings are generally inspirational or thought provoking. Some mean more to me than others.…

Talking to Dad

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 26, 2015

Mom and I were invited to a bridal shower today (my cousin’s daughter is getting married). It isn’t easy for Dad, who has some dementia (most likely Alzheimers) to stay at home on his own, so Mom brought Dad on over to my house to hang out with Owen and Ryan while Mom and I attended the shower (Rose…

X-Ray Follow-up

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 24, 2015

I figured I should write a quick post to follow up on my X is for X-Ray post to let you all know what’s going on with my heel pain. I went to the podiatrist and have the official diagnosis of Plantar Fasciitis and Peroneal Tendon Injury in my left foot. The bone spur I…

Y is for Yawn

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 15, 2015

I’m tired this morning so if you see me in town and catch me mid-yawn you’ll know why. I’m not bored. I’m not trying to get extra oxygen. I’m simply tired. I’d like to take a nap but today is one of those days when I’m on the run. Today is a day when I…

X is for X-Ray

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 14, 2015

Yeah, I know that writing about X-Rays for day “X” of an A to Z Blogging challenge is predictable because “x-ray” is the first thing people think of when they think of a word starting with X. Thing is, I really do have a reason to write about x-rays because I had two of them taken today.…

T is for Time

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 8, 2015

Time. I never seem to have enough of it and I tend to way underestimate how much time it will take for me to do tasks. Today, for instance, it took me about 40 minutes longer than I planned to fill out my form for my flight physical. I ended up rushing to get out…

Q is for Quilting

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 3, 2015

I’ve been making quilts since about 1997 when I decided I needed to make something for a blank wall in my home. That first quilt was a small wallhanging made from a pattern I found in a magazine. I hand quilted the quilt but not having any concept of proper hand quilting technique, I “stab…
