What to do?

I have a few issues, just like everyone else. However, my current giant flaw is my inability to be mean. Seriously, I’m totally a “tell it like it is” kinda girl, but I can usually say it with as much grace as I can muster. I don’t like to hurt people’s feelings or make them…

Feeling Like a Wimp Here

This will be short because my finger is hurting. It happens to be the index finger on my right (dominant) hand…perhaps the finger I use most…or at least I’m noticing how much I use it now that it’s hurting. You know how that goes. I think it is some sort of tendonitis or repetitive stress…

To keep my…

Kitty, Kitty

Life’s been crazy lately.  Today especially.  Add to that my lack of sleep from last night due to a certain visitor who dropped by almost every hour on the hour.  Needless to say, I don’t really feel like writing and if I did, it would either be pretty much a pity party or a gripe…

Is that too much to ask?

This week my husband’s grandmother passed away.  She was 93 year old, never took more than a multi-vitamin in her life.  She did however, several years back, begin her journey with Alzheimer’s Disease.  It was a long journey, spending 10 years in a nursing home.  She had 5 children, 12 grandchildren…and so many great grand…
