The Way I See It

Losing a fur baby

The Way See It

I f you have ever owned a pet – or maybe I should say been owned by a pet – you most likely had to make the difficult decision to euthanize them. Last week we said goodbye to our 14-year-old CeCe. She was the sweetest Bichon Frise ever! Though I was only around her for six months, she wormed her […]

‘Life is short. Take the trip. Buy the shoes. Eat the cake.’

The Way I See It

I have seen the above quote “Life is short. Take the Trip. Buy the shoes. Eat the cake.” on mugs, t-shirts and sprinkled through social media. In fact, I saw it not too long ago on my friend Sylvia Rodriguez’s Facebook page. She and her family traveled to Paris! I started looking for the person responsible for it, but Google […]

A wonderful world with Alma

The Way See It

This past Saturday many said their final goodbye to one of the sweetest and funniest persons that I’ve ever known – Alma Joyce Jones. A lovely Rosary and memorial service was held with a delicious meal following at St. I Andrew’s. Memories were shared, games were played and the tables were bedecked with Christmas decor and guests were urged to […]

Always a parent, even to adult children

The Way I See It

There are times in our lives when we are reminded that even though our offspring are adults, we are still parents. Stepping in to assist them when needed – be it emotional, physical or financial support – it is what we all do, right? We are available for advice or just a patient ear to hear complaints. And sometimes parents […]

Never forget …

The Way I See It

We all remember what we were doing when we found out the World Trade Center towers had been hit by terrorists on September 11. Flash forward 18 years and it is still a vivid memory. Our bathroom was being remodeled and I had taken a shower at my mom’s house. The news was unfolding as they reported the happenings of […]

Linens, quilts and antimacassars … oh my!

The Way I See It

What’s a gal to do? I have been slowly unpacking items that I didn’t have time to sort/purge before my move. I tackled my bins of linens over the weekend. Oh my. Really – what shall I do with these beautiful handmade items? There are quilts my maternal grandmother and great-grandmother made. I have several crocheted antimacassars, too. What? You […]

Retorting school district report cards

The Way I See It

A fter seeing the TEA report cards for Atascosa County, here’s my take. While our schools may or may not have achieved great grades, they failed to report that some districts’ overall performance actually improved from last year’s scores. To better understand the report, I went to the TEA website. I found a handy little publication from last year’s report […]

Space hogs

The Way I See It

I ’m going to rant just a bit this week. I attended a meeting out of town on Monday and when I left the restaurant, I noticed that a car had parked close by mine. When I say close, I mean like 7-8 inches from mine. Why do people not think about this at all? The car next to it […]

Happy place feeling shortlived

The Way I See It

I unplugged from technology for much of the past weekend. Imagine my dismay when I received a notification from a group text alerting me on the shootings in El Paso and Dayton. I had just spent two glorious days in one of my most favorite places and the “Happiest place on Earth” – Disney World – to learn of the […]
