Shades of Red

It’s a bit of a whining day, Folks. I’m not settling in to going back to work very well. I feel like I can’t catch my breath and as if I’m even more unprepared and harried than I’ve been. We were late for Beauty’s soccer game today, thinking we had to leave the house at noon, for a match that …

I’m Home

I’m home, Journeyers, literally and figuratively. We’ve spent a fair amount of time on the road since last fall, following our three children to and fro. Though I feel at home wherever I am, it sure is nice to be able to plant myself in my office chair and sleep in my own bed. This week, I got together with …

Where to BEGIN?! I guess with this. Warren and I had a week without any fights, without any SUPER H…E…A…V…Y… conversations, a week without Tension. I think we’re going to be alright, I first realized and then said to him, as we chuckled over some random inside joke. And I hate to admit this, but guess what? I wasn’t all …

I Am The Cure

I am the cure. For what ails me. And I’m so glad that this past week of Mad and Sad is over. Some weeks are that way, where The Shit seems to flourish. That seemingly eternal anguish makes me all the more appreciative for those times like Mother’s Day week, when I noticed plenty of Happy. Honestly, until Friday, I …

Pretty in Pink

  Long before the idea of Happy Happens sprouted in my mind, I received great joy from seeing these spring blooms during my daily commute. Honestly, I’d round the bend in the highway, and my heart would soar. Every. Single. Time. One day I decided I wanted to bring this kind of pleasure to my own yard. I phoned the …

The Kindness of Friends

Last Friday I had surgery to remove my appendix, right ovary and tube. Thursday evening, one of my pals showed up at my doorstep with Friday’s dinner. I returned home after the day procedure to find this gift from another friend.     And yesterday another girlfriend appeared at my doorstep with the evening meal for me and my boys.     …

Constant Comment, Remedy for the Common Cold

    I thought I might have dodged the winter bug bullet. But, alas, I came down with a cold earlier this week. Let me just say there is nothing like a piping hot mug of Constant Comment tea to help cure what ails ya. The unique blend of orange and spice seems to replenish what the common cold saps …
