CHILDREN OF DIVORCE

CHILDREN OF DIVORCE

The other night we were watching a hockey game and at one point the network was showing re-runs of fighting in the NHL.  I enjoy hockey but I can’t stand to see grown men fight. I hate it with a passion and I said to my husband “turn it off, I can’t stand to watch … Continue reading

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: 600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,500 views in 2012.

HEROES…

HEROES…

A good friend of mine went to “An Evening with Oprah,” I think I was one of the few women in this town who wasn’t there.  I like Oprah, I mean it’s hard to not like someone who does so much good with her fortune and tries to make something good out of everything she … Continue reading

POOR MAN’S CHAI TEA LATTE..

I’ve given up coffee, not caffeine, coffee!  A cup of green tea or chai tea amounts to half the caffeine of a cup of coffee.  I drink mostly green tea but I’ve started drinking chai tea lattes.  I think I’ve given up one addiction up for another because I have grown to love chai tea … Continue reading

SMELLING THE FLOWERS..

Lately I’ve been sad, there has been bad news all around me.  Cancer in my family, cancer in my friend’s family, possible Alzheimer’s there as well and the list goes on and on.  The feeling of helplessness can be depressing as all you can do is reach out and be there the best you can. … Continue reading

SOLID AS A ROCK

SOLID AS A ROCK

I’m not a political person and I rarely comment on politics because I firmly believe before you have an opinion you should really know what the hell you are talking about.  Plus like my mother always said, “never discuss sex, religion or politics at the dinner table.”  Colin Powell is someone I remember well, I … Continue reading

DON’T PICK UP THE HAMMER

DON’T PICK UP THE HAMMER

The big day for my husband and I was April 18, 1998 and it was a great day.  Just before I got married my mother had some advice for me.  She said “whatever you do don’t pick up the hammer.”   “What, don’t pick up the hammer, that’s your advice mom.”  “What the hell does … Continue reading

I know I said I was taking a couple weeks off, but I figured it would be a major blogging faux pas to post an eggnog cake after it stops being sold in stores. Have some left over in your fridge from the holidays? Looking for a New Year’s dessert…
