Wendi’s Word: Bye lil’ Saturn

One single box was brought into the house after the 2007 Saturn Vue was emptied on Saturday. It was the last thing to do before we say goodbye to it. Four-year-old Jonathan immediately took out the Scooby-Doo windshield sun shield out of the box. I may have used it once in my 14 years owning […]

Wendi’s Word: Readyin’ to get to sheddin’

I am ready. I have said this many times. But I couldn’t say this during the beginning of the summer or during the summer because to be honest I wasn’t ready – mentally or emotionally. I can say it now – I am ready to go back on my Shape Reclaimed plan through Nuview Nutrition. […]

Wendi’s Word: The silver lining

I didn’t go looking for trouble, I just found it. Remember all that rain we had a few weeks ago, I found some of it had ventured into the corner of my basement office. Here’s how it happened, the “If You Gave a Mouse a Cookie” version of what happens when I reorganize or clean. […]

Wendi’s Word: Summertime fun

Sometimes I can’t believe we are already in August and school, in one form or another, will be starting soon. The summer that is…what it is. We have been doing what we can with the boys during a pandemic. They need sunshine and need to get out of the house. We need sunshine and to […]

Wendi’s Word: Fall around the corner

Besides all the players and coaches in masks, Monday evening felt almost pre-COVID-19 normal as Clarkston Varsity Football were in stations around the field for their pre-season workout and conditioning. Anytime I have visited workouts since they started at the end of June, it’s been good to see students outside with their teammates. First practices […]

Wendi’s Word: Zooming in 2020

Social distancing has definitely presented new opportunities to be with friends and family without being with friends and family. I have joined the masses and I am now on Zoom. My friend planned her baby shower to be on seen on Zoom. So there I was one Saturday afternoon, watching friends a few towns away […]

Wendi Word’s: Salute to seniors

Congratulations Class of 2020! You made it! Not just through your 12-plus years to graduation, but you made it through the crazy last few months. When you began your senior year, you weren’t thinking about how the year was going to be cut short. You were just looking forward to the last year and making […]

Wendi’s Word: Hot Wheels and books

Hello everyone out in quarantine land! How is the stay-home order treating you? Me? Just getting back into the groove as much as I can with a lot of events being cancelled or postponed on our return to The Clarkston News. What isn’t cancelled? Continuing to write out to-do lists. It helps focus and I […]

Wendi’s Word: From the zone

How is everyone doing out there in lockdown land? For us, it hasn’t been too bad. With a 15-month-old and 4-year-old who stay at home most of the time, it’s not a change for them. The change will be adventures out of the house. There will be more of an impact as the weeks go […]

Wendi’s Word: Spring for books

The boys and I celebrated the extra day in February by going to the library. Fifteen-month-old Oliver enjoyed running up and down the aisles in the children’s area. He is quite quick at the “chase” game he thought we were playing. I was just making sure he didn’t tug all the books off the shelves […]
