For as long as I can remember, I have always been the type of woman to say "bring it on" to the higher power each and every time things have went wrong. I welcomed the challenge. A few weeks ago, me and my daughter were in a discussion about her friends from school and one... Continue Reading →
He was one hell of a Father
Happy Father Day to all the men and women who father their children!
My father was not a perfect man but he was one hell of a father. I remember when I was little, I would go sit on my father’s lap after getting out of the shower. I would say, “you’re so worm” and he would reply, “and you’re a snake.” It was a nightly routine and one I always looked forward to.
He taught me everything the hard way. I remember when he bought me my first real bike at the age of seven and as soon as we got home, he took off the training wheels. He taught me how to ride my bike on the road in the dark that night and each time I fell, I had to get back on and continue. As a result, I learned how to ride a bike in one night.
When he taught me how to drive a car for the very…

Greece bound for Summer
I am monitoring her flight in real time as I write this. This morning I took my daughter to the airport to put her on the plane to Greece for the summer. This time, it was different. There were no tears. If you remember last year, I had a breakdown at the airport when saying... Continue Reading →
I wrote this last year to my mother.
Remembering her on Mother’s Day.
I just wanted to tell you that it has been four years since you’ve been gone. This year in particular has been spent in thoughts of you. It is said that it is easier as time goes by and that the pain slowly fades but whoever said that has no idea what they are talking about. This year in particular brought back all the memories as though it were only yesterday.
Every year when Easter rolls around and the Easter candy appears on shelves in the store, I think about you. Four years ago when you decided to let go, I spent that week living on Easter Candy and water, okay and maybe a little beer as well. We spent time going through all your belongings you left behind and I couldn’t help but wonder what you had been up to behind my back by organizing all the photos for…

Thinking back to the darkest time of my life
A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about the eerie thoughts that had been running through my mind and found out it was all due to menopause. Since then, I had been thinking back to when I had these similar thoughts, but I just couldn’t pinpoint when that was. As I continued racking my... Continue Reading →
Mental Menopause Meltdown
The things we go through during menopause is not to be taken lightly. For me, I guess it all started one evening as I was getting ready for bed. I laid down and my heart began pumping so hard that it was causing the bed to move. I figured there was something wrong as heart... Continue Reading →

As you know, my daughter is 15 and loves to read. She reads all kinds of novels, except for romance. However, last night she told me about a movie that came out on a book she had just read and wanted to us to watch it together. All she told me was that it was... Continue Reading →
Will she talk to his mom at the party?
Last year I wrote about a boy/girl party that my daughter had been invited to. It was her first and she was very nervous. She was invited by a boy who had an interest in her and that just added to the pressure of it all. However, during the party, she pretty much sat and... Continue Reading →
