This was the brief conversation I had one morning with my husband. Short sweet and to the point which is what happens after many years spent with another human being. We were in the living room and I was reading an article in the Readers Digest about ADHD. With each paragraph I was more and … Continue reading I Think I Might Be ADHD… No Shit!
It has been a beautiful fall but this morning I woke up to swirling snow and a weather advisory warning. As I sit in my chair by the bay window, with the fireplace on and a mug of steaming coffee, I put down my book and decide to write about something that has been on … Continue reading Milestones
What is in a pronoun?
I follow a young person on instagram who identifies as non-binary. Young is a relative term as this person is around fourty but that was some time ago for me. So.... young. Anyways, this individual has chosen to be referred to as they or them. Not he/she or him/her. I must admit when I first … Continue reading What is in a pronoun?
Mourning the Past
I see a lot of posts on Instagram telling people to enjoy their kids as it is all over too soon. That is true. When you are in the middle of the chaos and mess it is hard to catch your breath and find time to relax. The posts are very similar as they try … Continue reading Mourning the Past
Whatever Happened to Getting Along?
I finally got myself an Instagram account and I just love some of the posts. I follow gardeners, recipe type stuff and of course my daughter. I love that I can just click a button that say's "what is this crap?" and I stop seeing it. I am paraphrasing. I don't personally post anything because … Continue reading Whatever Happened to Getting Along?

You have heard this before I am sure. There is your side, my side and then the real story. The problem is we only believe our side. And we stick by it through thick and thin. It doesn't matter what is happening around us. What we are going through. What we read in the news … Continue reading Three Sides to Every Story
Hillary Clinton Opened My Eyes

I understand their efforts through the years did help to bring about positive change in many ways, I do also believe the feminist movement of … Continue reading Hillary Clinton Opened My Eyes
I don't know about you but I certainly have a lot of pet peeves. Little things that just bug me. One particularly annoying one is people who don't know the difference between yield and merge. This is a big one for me. Half the time people blast right through a yield which is annoying and … Continue reading Pet Peeves
Philosophy, My Old Friend
I have loved Philosophy since I was a young University Student. Actually, it was a few years later that I became truly interested. What caught my fancy early on was a Philosophy Student I met. He was a friend of a friend and I met him at a party that I attended when I was … Continue reading Philosophy, My Old Friend
Yesterday I switched on the television and there was a hockey game on. I assumed it was an old taped game but nope... It was current. The Flames made the playoffs. I don't watch a lot of sports so I wasn't really aware that things were going on as usual. Who knew? Well my husband … Continue reading The Fan…
