Spring, What Spring?

May 29th, 2011 · No Comments · Stuff

Maybe if we planned our “spring vacation” for July spring might have actually arrived in Chicago before we departed, but as it was we packed for our tenth anniversary trip leaving lovely 56° temperatures behind in mid-May. The good news is that we were headed to the land of 85° sunny days and mild trade […]

Bear Downer

January 26th, 2011 · Comments Off · Stuff

It has been almost a week and I may finally be ready to talk about it. I don’t know; it is all still pretty raw. The grief that one feels after a loss like this one really requires some time and distance. It has to be put into perspective. I am referring, of course, to […]

On Probation

January 18th, 2011 · No Comments · Good bad television, Stuff

So if it was my job to write here, I might have to fire myself. I haven’t even bothered to call in sick or request a leave of absence. I have just been completely MIA. Luckily, as I am more of volunteer, I just gave myself a stern warning and put myself on probation. I […]

Giving Thanks

November 30th, 2010 · Comments Off · Stuff

I was thankful on Thanksgiving Day. Really, I was. I was thankful for my family, my friends, my dogs, my home, my job and my health. And these were the blessings that I had planned to spend my Thanksgiving Day celebrating, along with roast turkey, green bean casserole and some NFL football. As it turned […]

Let’s Get Physical

November 11th, 2010 · No Comments · Stuff

I have suffered with back pain for years. Last year it reached a critical point where I actually went to the doctor. I don’t like to rush into things, as you can see. I went to the doctor seeking less a solution and more something to take away the pain. The doctor, missing all my […]

Freeze Frame

October 25th, 2010 · No Comments · Stuff

My sister in law, the mother of my godchildren, is mildly obsessed with documenting the life and times of her kids. My niece and nephew are one and three respectively and she has held at least four, maybe more, portrait sessions at one of those strip mall photography store fronts and has created multiple Shutterfly […]

The Change

September 23rd, 2010 · No Comments · Stuff

It has happened. No, not the hot flashes kind of change. I have a grown up job. I know, right? I have reentered the land of the commuters and cube dwellers. I have become a Dilbert cartoon or a character on The Office. I am Regina Phalange, a business women in town on business. It […]

College redux thwarted

August 23rd, 2010 · No Comments · Stuff

It looks as if I will be delaying my return to college. Luckily, I did not run out and buy school supplies or this fall’s coolest jeans. The local university of my choice (a school that my taxes pay for) will not accept my transcripts as prerequisites to their business courses because they are TOO […]

College redux

August 3rd, 2010 · 1 Comment · Stuff

I attended college a while ago; a long while ago. But I never got my bachelor’s degree. Shocking, I know. But it is the age old story: I ran out of money. OK, I sort of misspent some of my money. My grandmother, who had been paying for my education, passed away and the little […]
