Tuesday is the day we transport Mollie and her belongings to the other side of the state, and these are the last days of having her live with us in the way she has since she was born more than 18 years ago. Each time one of our kids trundled off to college, I felt […]

If only i had not gone back to get the water bottle I had left on the rock formation, this never would have happened. I had just found two four leaf clovers side by side about a half hour before, also. Some, and I am among them, would say that I am lucky. I should […]

The reader may have noticed that this self-described author has been authoring fewer posts than usual. This has not been my intention, of course, since if I could, I would post every day. It is just that My eyelids seem to have put on a bit of weight lately; there is no other possible explanation […]

It is hard to believe that this is already the second day of vac! We drove to Philly yesterday. For some reason, during my portion of the drive, I was exceedingly sleepy and could hardly keep my eyes open, even while listening to Dan Savage beautifully, in the way only Dan can, narrate his “American […]

At Weight Watchers this week, I resolved that my new routine for the upcoming week – starting two days ago – was going to be “eat more slowly.” This would mean doing things like putting fork or spoon down between each bite, taking a sip of water before taking another bite, sitting and chatting between […]

It is now January 4, which, in case you cannot do the math, is three days after January 1, the first day of the New Year.

I used up the first three days of vacation completing xmas stuff and immersed in family time and in completing Doctor Sleep, which was one of Mr. King’s best, replete with monsters, humanity, a combination of the two, and, of course, redemption. Two movies in the past week – Inside Llewyn Davis and today, Nebraska. […]

So far this week, all the office staff and docs have been walking around like zombies. Andrew’s obituary was in the paper; several articles about him in Post Gazette. The funeral is Saturday. All day yesterday, which was such a crazy booked day, I was completely distracted from thoughts about Andrew, his family, and how […]

This whole thermal dysregulation thing has got me stumped. There are so many more questions than answers. like these top ten: 1. being freezing and boiling simultaneously. I get that running 5 miles in 80 degree humidity can cause one to drip with sweat, even long after the run is over, even after a shower. […]
