Pay attention to your body

Some days you feel good, and some days you don’t. That’s just how it is. That doesn’t make you good or bad, it just makes you human. The smart thing to do is to pay attention to your body.

Health insurance

My latest issue is my health insurance. First, they keep screwing up the same thing, over and over. And every time they screw it up, I call them, get transferred innumerable times, and then finally someone says it is fixed – and I believe them. It is fixed, for maybe a month, and then they . . . → Read More: Health insurance

A news break

The world can seem overwhelming right now, with so much going on. There are days when I just want to watch comedies on TV and ignore the real world.

I think one of the nicest feelings I get is when I realize what a wonderful son that my husband and I raised. I am pretty sure that it is in spite of us, and not because of us, but I am also sure we must have had at least a small hand in it. . . . → Read More: Parenting


I am tired of people trying to make others adhere to their beliefs. I am totally fine with you believing whatever it is you want to believe, just leave me out of it. I believe what I believe, and sometimes I don’t know what I believe, but I am working on it. In the end, . . . → Read More: Beliefs
