My Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
No, itís not a comedy like the Alexander movie that is currently showing. Sunday was one of my worst days in a very long time.
It started out okay Ė coffee and conversation with Mike, a little house cleaning and laundry.

Trying to enjoy fall while dealing with Momís anxiety
Fall is my favorite time of the year Ė leaves changing colors, cooler temps and no mosquitoes. I can sit on the deck in the morning, enjoying a cup of coffee or in the evening with a glass of wine or water and my favorite guys. The air smells am... Read more
Allergies, work reclassification and life in general
This week has found me plagued with allergies. I am allergic to dust mites and they were out in full force after we had to turn on the furnace when temperatures dipped into the 30s and reached high in the upper 40s and low 50s. Dust that had set... Read more

Catching up with old friends and family, fun and possible promotion at work, and roof troubles
I am finding hard to believe that summer is about half over (according to my sonís school schedule anyway). It feels like only yesterday we were still shivering in the cold temperatures. But wait a minute Ė it did get down into the lower 40F deg... Read more
The weather didnít cooperate as well as I had hoped this past weekend, but it sure didnít dampen the wonderful time I had. In fact, my youngest son and I embraced it and had a fun experience yesterday.

Sanity may be on its way
I almost hate to jinx things, but it finally feels like a little sanity may be coming my way. My phone rang at 6:45 a.m. on a Saturday morning (nearly two weeks ago). Mike was already up and came in to see what the call was about. It was the hos... Read more
A living nightmare Ė ACCOUNTING!
As a student I liked, and was good at math, but that certainly didnít mean I was destined to become an accountant. I preferred art, photography and writing so I chose to pursue a career in Graphic Communications. After earning my degree, I was h... Read more
