Here’s what happened over the summer….

Doing work you love is hard, but when you love it as much as I do, it seems mostly effortless.  The only down side is that it takes up much of your time and life seems to fly by so very fast. Take for instance, my blog.  My diary to my family, today and tomorrow, and to the world (not that the whole world is interested, but that it is open to everyone in it who is curious enough to look)

 Summer is officially over, so there are a few things I want to jot down so I will not forget they ever happened.  This Summer, I had some changes in my life; one was to say good bye to my accompanist, Maddie, who went to Notre Dame University to bigger and better things than playing at our sweet little chapel in the woods….


Here is one of our last pictures together.  She was a very, very sweet young lady, who did a great job providing music for our Masses every week. 


Another change in my life was that of work.  I am still dedicated to my wonderful Precious Metal position, but am beginning to feel a shift in the industry in the area of gold buying parties.  To create an excitement to my hostesses, I brought on It Works, Global on board as a sister business to create a stir, and it has.  I have been buying gold and silver and wrapping bodies all summer long.

I have also cut 9 inches off my hair….



Children’s Day Festivities…



An impromptu photo session at the Water Tower Park…our annual trip down the shore and a trip to Tabor Lake!



Other highlights include the Baptism of Sonny where we got to see some old friends….

and finally, the beginning of school to get things back into order….

I am still singing weekly at Mass and a Funeral or 2 every month as well as Weddings now and again.  I had a special treat when I got to see my Catholic Elementary School Principal, Sr. Ascenza, who I love very much. It wasn’t the best picture, but you can see how happy we are to see each other. 🙂


Overall, it was a great Summer and I am happy that fall is here to bring on new adventures in our loud, crazy life!


Loudly yours.



Five question Friday! 5/25/12

1. Are you a napper?

Yes, but usually when I am sick or pregnant or my body just tells me to. Not a regular occurrence.

2. What was your favorite subject in school? Most hated?

Social Studies. Hated Math.

3. Did you have the something old new borrowed and blue at your wedding? What were they?

Borrowed was my cousin in laws veil, can’t recall if there was anything blue.

4. What one thing are you determined to do this summer.

Build my new business up, spend time with the kids at the pool.

5. Ice cream or Popsicles?

Ice cream is great, but the amount can get out of control. Popsicles are nice because there is more of a chance of portion control.


That is a phrase I hear a lot at home, usually from my youngest Son.  “Ummmm…. Mrs. Go….I mean Mrs…..MOM!”

My Son’s teacher says the same thing happens to her, except it’s “Ummmm….Mom?  I mean Mrs…..”

Very cute.

I find it interesting, this partnership that his Teacher and I share to teach him what he needs to know to get to the next level in his education.

Vincent was asking this morning as he was finishing up his spelling homework, left undone from last night;

“Do you spell “I”  in capitals?  All my itself?”

“Yes”, my husband and I told him and he wrote it down.

One more piece of knowledge added to what he is learning everyday.

I once read a great article about how a parent is like an architect, erecting a building, little by little.

It does not look pretty on its way up, but once it’s done, you could stand back and admire the whole structure.

Sometimes it is hard to appreciate what it will look like when it is finished, it may look odd to some and may take a long time to finish, but if the foundation is set properly, it will stand.

On its own.

We, the parents, together with his teachers, past, present and future, all work together to put that foundation together and continue to help construct his “building”.  Quite a big responsibility….for all of us.

So I was happy this morning, thinking that it was an honor to be a part of his foundation and that maybe I could help his building stand strong one day in the future, knowing that I helped to place a good many of his bricks in the right place.

Loudly yours,


The Girl Scout Law

I was treated to a Brownie Ceremony yesterday at my local public school. My Daughter is a part of troop that meets there a couple of times a month.

They had a little play that told the legend of the Brownies,

They got some new badges,

and said the Girl Scout Law posted above…

I was very proud that our Troop stuck to the original Law and did not change any words.  It was recited just as I recited it as a Girl Scout myself.  It is interesting to realize that all those years ago, when I was in Girl Scouts, it must have had a profound enough effect on me that I still strive to live by their rules to this day.  Do I keep and follow every rule? Of course not….but I do strive to follow them and am disappointed when I do not.

The Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be:
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.

Once a Girl Scout, always a Girl Scout!

Loudly yours,
