A Tribute to My Daughter on Her Birthday

Oh, my dear daughter, thirty years have passed from the day I first held you in my arms. It’s been an exhilarating journey being your mom. No, it hasn’t been all bliss and lollypops and gum drops, you and I both know this. You were not easy to raise. Me, with my I want to […]

In Light of Vegas

We’ve all heard crazy stories about Las Vegas. One lady tried to get cash from a Sprinkles Cupcake “ATM” machine, while there’s a guy in a corner crying, and he’s in a diaper. A stupid sign that reads “Kick me in the nuts” and it only costs $10.00. Friends at a Blackjack table pulling their […]

Change Stinks

I’ve been watching the TV show This Is Us. I love it. Confession: I’m kind of addicted, much like I’m kind of addicted to food and coffee and peanut butter. There was one episode highlighting Thanksgiving. The family in this show was on their way to see Grandma and Grandpa and spend Thanksgiving with them. […]
