February 21, 2017Murphy
"Mom, I think I have strep throat" was the text I received while my oldest daughter was at work. "Text me a picture of your throat," I replied, and soon enough I see that spider web rash wrapped around her tonsils that I've seen before. All of this happened late on a Saturday night, when the doctors office and pharmacy were closed. The timing is not even Murphy's la, it's just the way life always seems to be. Kids never get sick during regular business hours, their tummies hurt when you are halfway to Grandmas house with two hours left to drive, in the middle of the night and usually after hours on a Friday. This is some of the life clutter we need to cut through on the air: life is ever changing, and we can consistently bring the emotion to life she needs, empathy, happiness, encouragement and hope. No matter what format of music you play the audience needs this in your own special way. So bring it, and include a squirt or two of hand sanitizer.

I was gifted a meal subscription service for Christmas, and I just received my first box of goodies: three nights of delicious dishes with enough food for four meals each. Inside the box I found farm fresh seasonal produce, precut and all ready to cook, beef with no ...

December 13, 2016December Fever
I was in the mall last night and grew fonder of on-line shopping. My visit was simply to get a computer serviced at the Apple store. As I walked through the sea of families stroking and coughing on every iPad and iWatch in the store, I wished for iSanitizer on every ...
December 6, 2016December
December birthdays tossed into the usual decking of the halls can really complicate ones calendar. We December babies get that this month is tough. I've always appreciated the fact that my mom kept the days different, as I do for one of my daughters, also born this ...
November 22, 2016Cars
Car shopping has me looking at everything with four wheels in a different light. Instead of driving behind a silver car I deem "too slow because it won't drive the limit in the fast lane, my view has changed to "I like the styling of that slow Acura. and the digital ...
November 8, 2016Field Trips & Parties
Field trips and parties are an important part of the school year. I remember being sick for my second grade field trip. I was devastated to miss our class trip to the Philadelphia Zoo, that really was worse than the chicken pox I had. My kids will never understand that ...

October 25, 2016Let Go
Once a woman grasps on to something she usually doesn't let go for awhile unless she's non-committal and that typical joke usually blames a man for the punch line. Everyday seems like a different diet for someone or a different lifestyle adjustment that involves food. ...
October 11, 2016Support Team
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 ...
