January 3, 2017Happy New Year!
After weeks of preparation for a few days of celebration, She is finally grounded and surrounded with another list of things to do: pack away decorations, make a few final returns, recycle the Christmas tree, (if she has a real tree), and purchase up any year end discounted goodies.
Most kids are back in school, save for a few college-bound stragglers whose next semester begins end of January. Her workplace is full of those who are functioning through this post-holiday blur, almost in a "what-just-happened" daze. Her previous schedule is kicking in with the addition of her New Year's goals and resolutions. Losing weight, getting in shape, stopping smoking, finding a new job, and getting more organized top most resolution lists.

I had a recent outpatient procedure; that is a word that I have come to really dislike. I've also become very familiar with outpatient procedure facilities. These are places that allow you to get a minor to moderate surgical procedure, and go home shortly after. Your ...
September 27, 2016One Last Time
Daughter number two has been preparing for the SAT test this summer, and I know have a love-hate relationship with the calculator option on her cell phone. I have learned that just because someone gets a good grade in a math class does not guarantee the critical ...
