Menstrual Issues = Surgery


A while ago I participated in a blogging project for You Are Loved where I blogged about women’s health issues and specifically about TSS.  You Are Loved is a great non-profit that deals with teaching women and young girls about menstruation.  They are a great resource for families that are seeking help for young women […]

Wordless Wednesday – Snow! :)


  Fun driving in it! (no I did not take pic while driving) getting gas in the snow/cold is no fun! I will post more pics soon!  Hope my friends in the sunny places of the world enjoyed the snow.  I would ship some to you if I could 🙂    

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!


Friends and Family, I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, or anything else that you may celebrate.  I wish you all a Happy and healthy New Year.  It isn’t that I don’t feel these things.  It isn’t that I don’t care. I think about how I should send Holiday cards but […]

Wordless Wednesday – Happy Thanksgiving


I am thankful for all of the support and friendship that we receive online! I am thankful for our health. I am thankful for a job, food on the table and a roof over our heads. I am thankful for my family, especially my son. (see turkey he drew when about 3? below 🙂 )

Wordless Wednesday (sort of) Tripp Roth

Wordless Wednesday


I don’t know why but one of my favorite places on our “holiday” a couple of years ago was the garden area outside the Louvre.  The perfect combination of beauty and people watching.  And they did have a little cafe where I had my first cup of Café Américano- maybe that was why I liked […]
