So…..with age comes wisdom, or so the saying goes. I’d like to challenge that long-held belief. While it’s true, certain lessons learned over the years help you make better decisions as you age, but age certainly does not guarantee wisdom, nor prepare you for the uncertainties that accompany aging. During my young years, I… Continue reading Age = Wisdom + Confusion
Well, I must admit, I am among those few pathetic TV viewers who do not have expanded TV channels. I’ve never seen Hunger Games, House Of Cards, Breaking Bad, or any of those other highly touted “must see,” shows. This is for a couple of reasons; foremost the cost, sheer lack of interest another. This… Continue reading TV Options for Us with Limited Cable ie..The VAST WASTELAND
The evening ended much the same as others. I carried my sweet cat, Graham, up to bed with me. This evening, however, He was not lazily slung over my shoulder cackling his odd meow while I carried him up the stairs. My three other cats soon to follow when they felt like it. This evening,… Continue reading Thinking Outside the Box
Could it be any more devastating….you reach for your cell phone and it’s not in your bag, your car, under your car seat, not any where in your home. You re-trace your steps…..to no avail.

I tempted fate tonight and with reckless abandon, chomped into an ear of corn. I know, I know, the non-GMO, non-organic strain is likened to eating a literal pesticide store house. But I just so was jonesin’ for a good old fashioned corn-on-the-cob with some salt and pepper. I could not for the life of… Continue reading Eating for Dummies, or Don’t Eat that OR that!….
Recently, I have become increasingly annoyed by a TV commercial. I know…..what else is new? This one is jut so damned annoying and hideously insane, I needed to unleash my public loathing. Picture this: A “normal family” pushed to the limit by their anxieties because their internet connection has been “down” for 13 minutes. They rally the… Continue reading Seriously….? No Internet? Will life as we know it stop?
OK, for the record, I’m kinda sorry. It was a rather inconsiderate and callous wake-up call. Maybe rude, even. Like a bugle on the Army barracks. But, hey, it’s Saturday morning which meant “Let’s get this place clean!” As a hard working Mom with a demanding career, Saturday morning was the time for a “thorough”… Continue reading What The….#%?<!! Oh No!.. It's Saturday Morning..
I always worked outside the home, which my 2 daughters have chosen NOT to do. Each has miraculously accomplished pursuing their very different careers in the hours they manage to squeeze in, between, laundry, shopping, cooking, baking, wiping noses, trips to parks, driving to pre-school, spending hands-on quality time with their kids, and least of… Continue reading Motherhood Made Easy, Go to Work!
