  We have been swimming. And I loved it. I didn’t know how much I missed it, until now. I haven’t swam since 8 to 10 years now. I was not welcome in three of our local swimming pools after having seizures while swimming. Ramon was always there to keep me above water, but I […]


O my gosh, what a great party it was! Precious family time, with lots of laughter, cake, presents to open, and a lot of silliness.       Kuzco didn’t know where to go, look, and play anymore. There was too much of everything going around. So he decided that the main focus for today […]


Again, a day of preparation. Grocery shopping for the after-party on Sunday, and then baking apple pie and cake to put the birthday candle on. The kitchen smelled so good.     Later that evening we put on our fancy clothes and sprayed on some perfume, to go to another birthday party. It really is […]


Somewhere after twelve o’clock midnight. Ramon came to bed. I always wake up when he does, and then we snuggle together. But this time, we both started to sing. Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you… very silently off course, not to wake up the neighbor down stairs. I don’t think Kuzco appreciated it […]


Tomorrow is Kuzco’s birthday, but also a busy hospital day for me. So to make it as enjoyable as a can, I made all kinds of preparations. Grooming Kuzco, shopping for decorations, DIY-ing decorations, baking cookies. Fun-fun-fun stuff!             At the end of the evening we will hang all the […]


  Confession Tuesday; I have a bad case of telephone phobia. I’m embarrassed to say, but I really have. And the last few weeks it had become worse again. I hate to call someone on the phone. Whether it is a friend, family, or an official call, I will postpone it to the very last […]


I love the east and south of the Netherlands. Everything seems to be the opposite from the west. It literally is off course, but even life seems more exuberant and the people are friendly. They make you feel welcome, and you are treated as a special guest. We went to the east of the Netherlands […]

  I just don’t know what to write about. I have been so tired these last three days, that I just did what I had to do, and then only sleep. Today is supposed to be the gym morning, but I had to cancel it due to the exhaustion. We have a birthday party tonight, […]


  I wish I could sit here forever. But on the other hand, I would freeze my but off once my hot water bottle cooled and my thermos of coffee was empty. So I just enjoy this serene moment while it last. I went to the park this morning. Kuzco needed to run of his […]


  Manic Clean day. I have learned to stop my compulsive cleaning disorder, and taking it very seriously. I practically don’t clean anymore… At least, that’s how it feels to me. Instead of everyday with a toothbrush, and not having the energy to anything else, I clean once a week. And big chores once a […]
