And They Lived Happily Ever After

And They Lived Happily Ever After

Because I’m always watching for people to do crazy things, I was elated about the inside info I got recently. A crazy thing was about to happen. My friends Erin, Gary and I were sitting at the bar at a local restaurant, when the GM (thanks, Darby!) told us the plan. A guy was coming […]

Here’s to You, Here’s to Me

Here we go again, mmm. Another year, another resolution, right? A new exercise regime, plans to do this and that more, clean eating. The list goes on and on. They’re often empty promises, made after a rough year or a gluttonous holiday season. Okay, maybe empty is a little too harsh. Good intentions abound. Gyms […]

When your son puts on a suit for the first time, it’s a big deal. If you see him shaking the groom’s hand, congratulating him on such a lovely wedding, grab the tissues. (January) For the moms out there who hate me for changing my “You have to be 10 before your ears will be […]

1. My dad is coming from Chicago to celebrate Christmas, just as he does every year. After our last winter storm, I think he feels a bit tentative. In Chicago, at least they’re prepared for nasty, cold, snowy weather. Their lives don’t slow. It’d be a cruel twist of fate if he came here only […]

Thank goodness for photo evidence, because otherwise most of you wouldn’t believe me. Unless you were there to see it in person, it seems awfully far-fetched. My husband was on stage last weekend. He stood in front of an audience and did stuff. Yep. Over the past several weeks, people have said, “I didn’t know […]

I’ve talked to so many people who are feeling low this Christmas. Most can’t explain why they feel it. I mentioned last week that I needed to get it together for my kids. They won’t be little forever. We have a tree. It’s in the stand and is the most gorgeous tree we’ve ever had. […]

Where’s My Christmas Spirit(s)?

Where’s My Christmas Spirit(s)?

It’s December, and I need help. The list far exceeds any space allowed here, so we’ll just talk about the December part. If it’s December, Christmas is right around the corner. Weeks away. So here’s the problem. I have zero motivation. I’ve lost my spirit. Never fear. The reason for the season isn’t gone. I […]

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 […]

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 […]
