I have been thinking about many things lately and so here they all are. And, to indicate that I may be battling a winter cold – I have felt like I am battling such for about a week now – I actually did not stay up and watch, listen to the State of the Union… Continue reading This and That
Social media! There are many more platforms than those three in my title but all I can say is oh my! My latest catch is odd hashtags – odd as in innuendo-based – for corporate accounts. I opened Twitter this morning to see the hashtag #itsOKtoswallow on a company’s tweet. While I understand the use… Continue reading Twitter & Facebook & Pinterest…Oh my!
I read Anne Lamott’s newest book, Stitches: A Handbook on Meaning, Hope and Repair, back in October of last year. The book hit shelves the end of October.

There are a number of reasons for this. Christmas Spending/January Debt Like a lot of… Continue reading This and That
Last week’s meal planning went quickly by the wayside. I made it two days into the week before going off kilter. With another cold snap coming up this week, I am glad as some of what I was going to make will be shifted to this week. Sunday – Tacos (ground chicken for the kids… Continue reading Food for the Week

While I agree with that in many cases, I am having a… Continue reading Another Health Care Insurance Adventure
Who doesn’t love a new slate? A blank page? Okay, people who have a block for writing may not like a blank page but truthfully, there is nothing but possibility in newness. In starting over.
