A Nurse Assaulted

Maybe you've seen this video by now. The one where Alex Wubbles, a nurse at University Hospital in Salt Lake City, is assaulted and arrested by a police officer while she is at work, doing her job, protecting her patient. Thank God that there is a video account of this so that everyone is free … Continue reading A Nurse Assaulted


My slip is showing

I have recently become aware of some minor formatting issues with my book, which I will be addressing in the next printing. ūüėÄ Wasn't that mature of me? An amazingly calm reaction, since my inner critic and inner perfectionist are usually hard at work full-time, preventing me from letting anyone see my fiction writing, never … Continue reading My slip is showing

TWC is the Devil

I hate TWC. I am making the equivalent of a car payment to them every month for my "Triple Play" bundle, and you know what I am getting for all that money? Crappy equipment that malfunctions every day and is practically disposable. I am driving to the TWC office at least bimonthly to swap out … Continue reading TWC is the Devil

Great audiobook

I just finished this book and I really enjoyed it. Lisa Scottoline,whom I'd never heard of, spoke right to me and many of my issues. Even though she's twice divorced (nope, not me), she lives with 5 dogs (nope, I live with 3 humans...and chickens!) has 1 child (I have 2), has seen 50 come … Continue reading Great audiobook

Have it your way

I was recently reminded that going to the gym on an empty stomach is (for me) never a good idea. In a subconscious effort to undo any potential good my time at the gym may have afforded me, I headed over to Burger King for the special. ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Two Breakfast Sandwiches for $3 This is a … Continue reading Have it your way

Wicked good? Not!

I recently visited a popular restaurant in Wells, one that I go to frequently. Usually I go with my husband but this time I was with ¬†my daughter. We went there on Saturday. My twelve-year-old picked the restaurant and was excited to be going out for lunch with her mom. My preference is always to … Continue reading Wicked good? Not!

Critters in the Attic Update

Critter free, day three. I'm feeling hopeful and confident enough to say what we did to have¬†driven them away for good. Well, there was some activity in my bathroom ceiling above the shower.¬†I turned on the exhaust fan and left it running around the clock for a couple of days (okay, all week) and¬†I didn't … Continue reading Critters in the Attic Update

Heavy sigh

I watched a Dr. Oz episode that I taped last week, just for something mindless to do for an hour. I usually tape them every week, read what the topic is, then delete them without watching them. This time there was one I wanted to watch...something about losing weight and maybe becoming a millionaire...great! Sign … Continue reading Heavy sigh

What do (married) men want?

I don't know about you, but when I go to the beach, I am most comfortable when almost every inch of me is covered from my chest to oh, say about mid-thigh. Let's just say that I am a big fan of those skirted bathing suits, which my husband refers to as 'mommy-suits' (or in … Continue reading What do (married) men want?
