Harassment from Friends on Facebook

Saturday, December 04, 2010      7 comments

Saturday, November 27, 2010      3 comments

When my dear SIL said our time at the resort in the Ozarks was going to be sleeping, eating and reading, she wasn't kidding. I must admit, I posted some of what I ate, just to see how bad it was, but I didn't post everything for three whole day... Read more

First Black Friday Ever

Friday, November 26, 2010      3 comments

I have never shopped on Black Friday, much less at a discount mall. However, all the women and my DH decided a quick trip to the nearby Tanger outlet mall was in order. We arrived shortly after 8 and left about 10:30 AM just as things were rea... Read more

Putting life in perspective

Tuesday, November 16, 2010      4 comments

I had a wonderful day. It started with a visit to the dentist with the diagnosis that my dry socket was healing and I have been relatively pain free today. This afternoon I got to teach yoga at the Montessori school to 3-5 year olds and 6-9 ye... Read more

Surprising Happiness

Wednesday, November 10, 2010      3 comments

When I retired from teaching at risk teenagers 2 1/2 years ago, I figured I has used up my allotment of being in the right place at the right time doing the right thing. I loved teaching, I loved helping kids believe in themselves and sometimes... Read more

Getting in touch with your royalty.

Tuesday, November 09, 2010      4 comments

At the yoga festival over the weekend, I heard a great metaphoric story that I must share. Imagine you see a carriage with a passenger, a drive and horses. The carriage is in disrepair, the passenger is royalty, but is asleep and dreaming of ... Read more
