For many years I swore that the year I was currently experiencing was the “worst” ever. Bad things kept happening, and despite the fact that I would wish the badness of the year away, things only seemed to get worse with the change of the new year. At a certain point every year seemed to… Read More Thoughts on The Fourth Day of The Year
I’m currently working on my portfolio that is required of me to graduate with a degree in Rhetoric/Writing. This is one of the pieces I am including. It has been over 25 years since I set foot in Costa Rica, but the memories I had of that summer will stay with me forever. When I… Read More They Called Me “Gringa”
At 12:15am as I was laying in bed Sunday night I realized that I had failed to post anything for day 30 of the Nablopomo challenge. Lots of reasons for that. My kids and I had a belated Thanksgiving dinner and we finished decorating the house for Christmas. Now I just need to shop. I… Read More Day 30…2 days later.
It’s been a long day. Once again I was overly ambitious in the things I thought I’d get done. And only did a fraction of the things I thought I’d do. But…we got up our tree today.

They have changed me and my life in more ways than I can count. My parents. When I knew I was… Read More Day 27: My Post on Gratefulness

It was kind of mellow day today. This morning I attended the funeral of the mother of a friend of mine. She passed away from lung cancer. One thing that always intrigues me about funerals are the things that you learn; the stories you hear when people start talking about the loved one. I didn’t… Read More Day 25: Tuesday Reflections
When I first knew I was getting a divorce I told my then therapist, “I don’t know how to be an adult.” Even though I had done things like register to vote, buy a house, get married, have children, get a job, pay bills and taxes and all of those things that adults typically do,… Read More Day 24: Alis Volat Propiis
Day 22 of the Nablopomo challenge. I’m still hanging in there! I have a whole slew of things I would like to blog about today but will not. I don’t have time and some of the things I can’t go into much detail about. Like, the fact that I ran into the little brother of… Read More Day 22: Still Hanging In There!
