Slime. When I was growing up, "slime" was a word you used for a person of questionable character. As I got older, slime was a green liquid that you tried to avoid, as seen on a popular Nickelodeon show back in the 90s. Slime wasn't something you wanted to be around. Slime was gross. I'd… Continue reading So Sick of Slime
I make a list. I take it with me. I go to the grocery store with the list. The list tells me what I need. I should follow the list. I park the car, grab my cart and I'm ready. I've got the list in my hand. And then I walk in, and I'm immediately… Continue reading The Shopping List

To me, it was the beginning of a… Continue reading The Empty Chair

I was working from home that day, and while making breakfast, turned on The Today Show. Not paying much attention, I grabbed my laptop and set… Continue reading 9/11 Always Remembered

When I was 11 years old, my mom would take my brother and me to visit my great-grandmother at the nursing home. It was a circular building, which I remember thinking looked way too cool to house a bunch of elderlies. It would have made an awesome roller skating rink. I didn’t like to go.… Continue reading Life is too short to buy green bananas
School started today. And homework began for the parents. As I read the instructions from my girlie's 4th grade teacher, I smiled. Yes, this particular homework was welcomed. This homework was "In a Million Words or Less" tell me about your child. This teacher is a very smart woman. She wanted a chance to get… Continue reading My 4th Grade Project.
