Ok so I have some serious concerns with regards to my daughter Anna, who’s now eleven.  She ran into the kitchen two nights ago screaming, and me being a nurse, ignored her of course, because unless my children are bleeding profusely from a body part, I don’t budge.  They call it uncaring, I call it …
Ahh it’s that time again…time to rummage through our basements, closets and garages for all of our Christmas decorations that we shoved away last year.  We always start off excited with lots of happy energy, patting ourselves on the backs because we picked “the perfect day” to hang our holiday lights and set up our …
This is the time of year when people get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.  Supermarkets give away turkeys, cranberry sauce is stacked by the hundreds at the end of aisles, and broccoli rabe makes a comeback.  The fall decorations which have been in stores since September are now stamped …
My son Chris is fifteen and for health class he was assigned to care for a baby.  Not just any baby, either, but a life like computerized version with programmed times requiring it be fed, changed, burped and rocked. (I feel a book coming on…a sick ass paranormal version of Stephen King’s Christine but in …
Yesterday was my wedding anniversary, 16 years living in bliss with my husband; no arguments, no worries, no cares, no monetary issues.  A life of happily ever after, my every wish come true, every dream a reality…ok I can’t write another word without barfing. Here’s the down and dirty of it…being married is NOT easy …

I am the mother of two girls, 10 and 13 as well as a 15 year old boy.  They are growing and maturing…(um, strike that maturing part) they are growing faster than I can keep up with them. My son likes to wear clothes slightly larger than his actual size which means he’s only wearing …
This post is for all the women out there who carry a pocket book, handbag, purse, satchel or shoulder bag.  I cleaned mine out this weekend and what I found in it essentially scared me.  If you’re anything like me, then you may just want to dump your bag out and take inventory.  It can …
I never knew chickens could be purple until I opened the packaging to a large roaster today and saw it with my own two eyes.  I even held a piece of my son’s purple shirt up next to it to prove that the chicken did, indeed, have purple undertones under the skin. I was too …
Ok so I need to speak about a very important topic since I am a nurse practitioner.  It’s about the flu shot.  Before you groan, I want you to know that I am privy to both sides of the story.  Yes, given the fact I am in the medical field, I promote both giving and …
