Extra Small

I don’t need a gun. I mean, it’s not really a right I feel passionately about which sounds odd because I should feel passionately about all my rights.  Once one right is taken away, we are always told, that leads to a slippery slope and before we know it all rights are gone and it’s…

I like to do things the hard way. I’m pissed that schools don’t teach cursive, I still hand write cards and I worry that my children’s generation will lack culture and finesse.  They all spend too much time texting and on Facebook.  And then I see something like this… and I stand corrected.  I’m inspired.…

Hand Wash

Andrew sends me a text today that he saw a piece on The Today Show talking about how cursive handwriting is moving out of schools. He asked me what I thought. It’s safe to say I sort of lost my mind all over him.  He’s used to it.  I was texting with a fervor that…

Polyester Pants

Reality TV. Isn’t that an oxymoron? I remember watching television as a child, or even as a teenager (I do not watch TV now. I have three children…need I say more.) to get away, or be taken somewhere. Love Boat, Fantasy Island, even All in the Family. As the years went on, Dallas, Falcon Crest,…

Mismatched Socks

There are times, fortunately not often, but times none the less when I am overwhelmed with sadness.  Days or moments when the world seems unfair.  I used to be a very optimistic person, naive and optimistic, but now I find that I am learning to expect nothing and that bad things happen.  Even now the…
