We all want to change the world. I made the decision prior to starting my blog that I would refrain from political posts. They are too divisive and quite frankly not with the theme of my blog. However, the recent political and cultural climate is heartbreaking. I have seen news reports and pictures of grown …
This week was back to school for me. This actually means back to work. Back to work means morning mayhem. I love having my summers off but that means that when school starts each year I have to remake my routine. My goal is always to get my routine down regardless of whether I’m working …
It all started with the search for acetaminophen and ibuprofen to give to my grandson. The medicine cabinet was such a mess I couldn’t find anything.  Since I was obviously not going anywhere today, I decided to let the decluttering begin. We also keep medicine in the linen closet. These are the items we don’t …
Parenting adult children has it’s own challenges. I spent the day with my son visiting a college in Nashville. He spent the day explaining multiple times why he has been out of school for 3 years, and is just now looking at colleges. Personally I don’t feel that there is anything wrong with that.  I’m …
Hi Friends! It has been 11 days since I posted. It has been a very busy 11 days – physically and emotionally. So much has been going on in my world and it’s not necessarily bad, but there is definitely changing involved.  In fact, several changes are coming. There has been a lot of focus …

Today I had my first routine, “age appropriate”, colonoscopy. Despite all the fear and hoopla surrounding colonoscopies, it really wasn’t that bad. When my Nurse Practitioner suggested the screening at my annual checkup I initially balked at it. However as I sat there listening to her tell me how important it is I thought of …
When you've had a bad day
We have all been there. The car broke down. You lost your phone. You didn’t get the job. You spilled coffee on your favorite white shirt. Someone said something hurtful. You had a bad day. I’m not talking tragedy here, just one of those days where things just didn’t go the way you planned. You …
When I think of contentment, I think of being happy with what I have versus what I want. I don’t really think of contentment being about what I have versus what I had. “Don’t long for ‘the good old days.’ This is not wise.” Ecclesiastes 7:10 NLT How often do we wish for “the good …
