January 31, 2021 – The Middle Finger

I don’t know about you, but I’m about as comfortable using the middle finger as I am saying aloud the expression that it represents. You might find me using hand gestures, but they’re more along the lines of rabbit ears (when posing in a photo), the peace sign, making a circular motion next to myContinue reading “January 31, 2021 – The Middle Finger”

January 30, 2021 – Progress Report

Before I begin, I just have to ask a simple question. Did anyone else read the recent news report about China testing for Covid-19 using anal swabs? I actually read the article yesterday and then once I got done, I had to read it again. I was sure my eyes were playing tricks on me.Continue reading “January 30, 2021 – Progress Report”

January 29, 2021 – Bad Patient Syndrome

I hate to say it, but I’m a lousy patient. I’ve been in the hospital enough times to readily admit it. I just don’t like people poking around more than necessary or making promises they cannot keep. Whenever I’m admitted to the hospital, especially once a nurse has inserted an IV catheter into my armContinue reading “January 29, 2021 – Bad Patient Syndrome”

January 28, 2021 – Bladder Control

It’s no coincidence that there are so many advertisements for adult pads and diapers on TV and in magazines and pop-up ads on the computer. It seems to be one of the ‘joys’ of being female. We start out life ‘wetting ourselves’ and the closer we get to the end, we do more of theContinue reading “January 28, 2021 – Bladder Control”

January 27, 2021 – Health ‘Matters’

The theme of the day seems to be around ‘health’. I woke up with anxiety (big shocker!) as well as with significant back pain. I have had my back ‘act up’ enough times by now that I know exactly what to do when I feel the first ‘twinge’, call and schedule an appointment with theContinue reading “January 27, 2021 – Health ‘Matters’”

January 26, 2021 – Learning from our mistakes.

The fact of the matter is that we all make mistakes. Even me; especially me. We wouldn’t be human if we didn’t make them. I have an ‘eye’ for catching mistakes, whether that’s a curse or a gift, I’m not sure. And in this instance, I’m referring to spelling errors or when people add apostrophesContinue reading “January 26, 2021 – Learning from our mistakes.”

January 25, 2021 – Unexpected Parenting Challenges

I’ve been thinking a great deal about my children in recent days. How much my life has changed since I became a mother! I cannot imagine my life without them. Each one is so incredibly unique and has so much to offer. Of all the relationships I’ve had throughout my life, the ones with myContinue reading “January 25, 2021 – Unexpected Parenting Challenges”

January 24, 2021 – The Good Old Days

I have decided to take a break from talking about emotions and feelings and spend a little time talking about what ‘once was’, in other words, ‘the good old days’. In order to do so, I’m going to venture back in time, not as far back as when humans still hadn’t yet discovered the miracleContinue reading “January 24, 2021 – The Good Old Days”

January 23, 2021 – Relationships

I realize I’m treading into some dangerous territory, but I feel compelled to talk about relationships today. There is no getting through this life without them. The moment our body leaves the comfort of our mother’s womb, we are introduced to other people and the opportunity for relationships. Our first relationship is generally with ourContinue reading “January 23, 2021 – Relationships”

January 22, 2021 – Change of Plans

I woke up this morning with every intention of packing my suitcase and heading over the pass to spend some time with my brother and mom and possibly my daughter. I was up half the night, fretting over all a ‘quick visit’ entails (because it’s a lot). I’m no longer a twenty year old thatContinue reading “January 22, 2021 – Change of Plans”
