1. Though I appreciate being thankful, I’m thankful that Facebook people have stopped being thankful every day in November. 2. We should be thankful every day. It’s not a bad practice. Maybe I shouldn’t be such a sourpuss about Facebook. 3. I’m thankful for my new glasses. I thought I just needed a pair of […]

Let’s Talk Turkey

We’re traveling to Virginia for Thanksgiving this year. Friends of ours are in their final year of the med school process and are unable to go home for the holiday. As long as we’re home for Christmas, I’m up for a Thanksgiving adventure. The Kids have the whole week off these days, which is so […]

Complain No Gain

Complain No Gain

“What you’re supposed to do when you don’t like a thing is change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it. Don’t complain.” — Maya Angelou Goodness. That quote makes it sound so simple, doesn’t it? I try hard to keep the complaints to a minimum, but we’re all unhappy […]

Spring is my favorite season, and I sure do love summer. Fall’s great, with its beautiful colors and boots and sweaters, too. I don’t like winter. Is autumn returning, or did we skip straight on to frigid temperatures? I know, I know. All you people who live(d) up there don’t think this is cold. I’m […]

Start Dating Again

If you don’t have kids, you might think I’m crazy for bringing this up. Hell, most of you probably think I’m crazy anyway. Back to what I was saying. If you don’t yet have kids but are planning a family, or if your children are young and overwhelming, hear me out. Go on dates with […]

Here’s a Tip

Here’s a Tip

There’s something I do often, and it makes my husband mad. I have friends who make fun of me, because they think it’s ridiculous. I’m a chronic over-tipper. It probably started in college. When we’d go to bars, they’d ring a bell if someone gave a good tip. I loved hearing that bell ring. Unfortunately, […]

Clemson Might Be Little Bit Better…

Clemson Might Be Little Bit Better…

…but don’t worry: I’m not changing my loyalty. I still love my Dawgs. Part of my heart will forever live in Athens, Georgia, with its bars, restaurants, shopping, historic downtown and gorgeous campus. As a student, I went to just about every home game and many away ones. Not only that, but we have the […]

1. This is a great time of year. I don’t want to hear any of you complain about the weather or lack of things to do in the CSRA. I’m sure the “Augusta Sucks All the Time No Matter What” people will still find something to moan about, but they’re probably sitting on their couch […]

Play Nice

Play Nice

The Girl had her first major run in with a mean girl last week. We knew she would be fine, but, for a few days, she was deeply hurt by the actions of her classmate. She was forgiving but not sure they’d be friends. I think that’s fair. People asked if I wanted her moved […]
