Spring is in the Air

Outdoor landscapes are alive with color―greens, yellows, reds, and pinks. We are awakening from our winter hibernation of barren tree branches, empty landscapes, and drab skies to the joys of outside living once again. Snow and ice have been replaced by rain and mud, and shoveling is a thing of the past, until next year.

Out the Door

Every day it’s the same struggle. Getting out the door. It used to be easy, when it was just me. Things changed after I got married. That meant two people had to get up and out the door. The once daily routine for one, is now a daily routine for two. That means splitting bathroom

Life Goes On

The funeral home was crowded, and people were lined up out the door. We made our way through the line to do one last viewing and pay our respects to the family. My Aunt, her children, and her grandchildren were coping as well as could be expected, but their lives had changed, and would never

Happy Easter

Most of us will be busy this week preparing our Easter celebration. There are decorations that need to be put out, and clothes that need to be bought.

My Luggage went to France Without Me

The connecting flight was a nightmare. I felt like a sprinter in the airport, running from one end to the other. Knuckles white, I clutched my purse in one hand. My carry-on dragged behind me, barely touching the floor at times, just to make my connection. My coordinator had a tight schedule, and didn’t account

Picky Picky Picky

For those of you who know me, you know that I am a very picky eater. I don’t eat cheese, eggs, anything that swims, or anything white (sour cream, cottage cheese, cream cheese, mayonnaise, or plain yogurt). This usually isn’t a problem for me, until Lent. Growing up in a Catholic home, my family strictly

Land of the Lost Socks

Somewhere out there in the sewers beneath our homes lives a sock demon. He waits for the appropriate time, and steals just one sock. Why just one you ask? Nobody knows. But, my guess, he works for the sock companies, or maybe he just likes to irritate people. You gather your laundry and take it
