Why I am Thankful for Nurses and Doctors (And Not the Nosy Lady at Target Yesterday)

Two days before Thanksgiving, I decided that I should post about something positive, meaningful, and full of gratitude. So, I am–but I still can’t help bringing up that lady in Target yesterday. (My Facebook friends are nodding their heads. .. ) Let’s start off on a good note–as part of the Sandwich Generation and a mother of advanced maternal age (that means 39), I have had my fair share of […]

Having a Trekkie for a Husband and a Daddy

The following is an excerpt of an essay I wrote about the experience on Halloween in 2010 and my daughter being transferred at 5-days-old from MO BAP in St. Louis to Children’s Hospital. If you missed the post two weeks ago, then you missed that my husband was dressed up as Riker from Star Trek The Next Generation for Halloween, while we were dealing with all the NICU stuff!  This […]

Book Review: A Monster Calls

I’ve been meaning to blog about this book as soon as I finished reading it, but I recently had the pleasure of reading A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I highly suggest this book. A few weeks ago I was perusing the school library for something short to read. Being in AP English I have precious little time to read for fun as most of my time is monopolized by […]

World Religions: Let’s Explore

My husband and I have been seeking out new churches. We are Catholic, but since we had kids, we realize that Catholicism doesn’t support us as a family. We have energetic kids who cannot control the volume of their voices and do not want to sit for an hour straight (isn’t this every kid?). We walked away from the church when we were kicked out of Mass because our son […]

Are you Thankful?

Are you Thankful?

I was in a local resale shop today and actually witnessed a yelling match between two customers in line. The woman thought the man was going to slow and then the man started yelling at the woman to “shut up”. I was shocked! I would never talk to a stranger that way. Of course I didn’t her what she said, but what has happened to kindness and patience? Then — […]
