Memorize and relive

Life happens, begins a popular commercial. And indeed, it does. For some, life is happening too intensely, too gravelly to travel the road unaided. That’s me. I am leaning on all of my resources as I pick my way along this particular and oftentimes difficult road. But it is not without it’s laughter, too. Just the other night as I was struggling with something simple, my hubby got tickled about my attempt and began chuckling, and when I asked him what was so funny, he burst out laughing.

Vacations: don’t forget the others

Summer is here and everyone is traveling. At least, that is how it feels to me. Yes, this is a whiny, self-indulgent post about my life and how it is not turning out quite as I had so strangely prepared. If you do not want to read about my efforts at self-deprecation, you might want to click on the little “x” now. So…as I was saying before I rudely interrupted myself… Everyone is traveling to a vacation place. Some with kids, some with dogs, some with other baggage. I used to do that.
