You know the old adage- time flies when you’re having fun. We’ve been doing exactly that. My little garden is in full bloom and my first zucchini is making its way into the world, along with my tomatoes. It’s my first attempt at growing anything outside of herbs, so to see each blossom turn into […]

There are times when I think I’ve finally got this peri-menopause thing figured out, and wham! I get a surprise. Like the 8 day ‘early flow’ that started a few days ago. I didn’t see it coming, and didn’t know what hit me. Thankfully, a few days worth of laying low and lots of pain […]

In a few short days I’ll turn 46. As Samantha said last week when she turned 44- Where has the time gone? I’ve been thinking about that a lot the past few weeks- not just about where the time has gone, but also what this last year has taught me. I’ve learned so much, not […]

Have you ever been on the outside looking in at someone who you know is a train-wreck waiting to happen, yet in spite of trying to talk to them and hope they will see what is happening- they instead pummet themselves into the victim role and refuse to see that the choices that they are […]

Today is the LAST (Yes, I said LAST) day of Winter and I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to kiss it goodbye for a while. I do love each season for the beauty that it possesses, but I’ve seen enough grey skies to last me a while (technically forever, but I guess a […]

Lately, I’ve been having a LOT of dreams about Carol. Some of you who know me know who she is and others who have been reading this space for a while (or one of my other blogs) may also know that Carol was my aunt and best friend for many years. Last year she passed […]

When I was around 20-21 years old, I remember thinking that I needed to lose weight. Granted, I didn’t ‘really’ need to lose weight, but somewhere I’d gotten this idea planted in my head. Back in the day- I didn’t think or know anything about ‘healthy eating’, so my solution was to take ephedra diet […]

My time online lately has been pretty scarce- in fact- it has been that way since we got home from vacation. At first I was trying to get over jet lag and really didn’t feel like being online and now that I’m almost past the jet lag, I have been busy trying to tackle other […]

Yesterday we had three things on the agenda for our first day home. The first was to get some shopping done for some food and other things that I needed. I usually don’t travel with shampoo, deodorant or anything like that and just pick it up when we get to our destination. Since those are […]

I called Sheila earlier to see how she was doing. I knew she’d been struggling but I know by talking to her I have to confront the very things that I’ve been trying to avoid- and that something is Carol’s death. I know- for someone who is a take-the-bull-by-the-horns kind of girl, I’ve been avoiding […]
