Whenever I hear someone say this, I have to translate the phrase into the intended meaning behind it. The more accurate meaning is a longer, more awkward sentence that goes something like this: "I'm disappointed my body no longer looks and functions as perfectly as it once did." Which makes me...

I’ve been forced to slow down. A stomach virus decided I was going too fast. I’m not certain who gave it a vote, frankly, but it was more of a coup than an election. The new regime decides I should sleep – interspersed with moaning now and then. The new rules require me to spend hours staring out...

Good early Sunday morning to one and all. It is early here, 5:45 AM. Yes, I am up that early but when you are up at 5 AM five days a week your body just gets used to it. I was sleeping nicely but of course Clayton has to get up and eat and The Hubby was ready to oblige him this morning. When there...

It may be winter, but in Florida Spring is bursting out all over. Yellow pollen is showing up on my car and tickling my nose. As a result, I was feeling a bit under the weather today. I carried on, even though I could have easily spent the day at home taking care of myself. Funny how those of...

  Moon’s glow  so bright and gentle, Highlight the path,  illuminate my way home. Taking my evening walk, the full moon was high and bright in the sky. The moon’s glow followed me as I made my trek around the neighborhood. It seemed like months since I had been on this path. In fact...

Your face so dear to me,from the moment I first held you in my arms.I want to hold you again,like a small babyand take away all of your hurt and pain.Is there anything worse, as a parent, than watching your child suffer? To see them in pain or suffering?Last night I had a feeling reminiscent of the...

Fog, throws a veil over the trees and muffles the sounds of the morning,but does not quiet the chatter in my head.Last night my husband described me as a strong woman. I think that is an apt description. I am thankful that I do not fall apart when a crisis hits, especially when it comes to my...

If you don’t wear stilettos and still get orgasms, then pat your back. You are the last hope of science. It’s funny that ‘science-ologists’ think such theories need to be debunked. The “year’s worst abuses against science” by celebrity offenders is the annual list that is part of the Sense About...

When my daughter of 11 months fell ill last Monday, I had to take care of her instead of gently pushing her off to baby day care - as she's infectious and we don't want other little ones to fall ill too... what a joy to play with her when she felt better and to comfort her when she felt ill...
