Monday Giggle….(short post today because Outlander comes on in twenty minutes and I need to give Jaime the red headed stud on the show my undivided attention) Did you ever have fun with words…with your kids?  Ok, don’t judge me but here’s the deal…sometimes kids say things that have a double meaning, only they don’t …
Everyone has heard of the Bucket List…you know, all the things you want to do before the big guy in the sky points his finger at you and says, “Sorry, time’s up!” We all hit a time in our lives when the reality of mortality sinks in and we run around our house looking for …
Sometimes life humbles us…it shows us who’s boss (we tend to forget) and grounds us when we start feeling invincible.  This past week was one of those weeks for me and so I put aside all the jokes and puns for this post and decided to replace them with words that have a bit more …
Wrap rage…I knew such a thing existed but I never knew anyone had slapped a label on it.  The truth of the matter is wrap rage is real!  I researched it this weekend after slicing my knuckle open trying to get the stupid plastic wrap off a bottle of soy sauce. It’s a rare occasion …

Ahhh New York. Back to the crowds and smog. Back to the honking car horns and people flipping the bird at you for no reason. The plane landed about an hour or two ago and I would love to say it’s great to be home but I’d be lying.  Except for the fact we’ll soon …
Ahhh vacation…the thing that takes forever to get here but when the day finally arrives, all is right with the world.  Unless you are the Pagan family. The alarm (or cell phone) rang at the godawful hour of three a.m.  and the bright idea of taking a super early flight so that we could arrive …
Last week a few people asked me what the difference between a doctor and nurse practitioner was.   I thought I’d take the time to explain. -Nurse practitioners diagnose medical problems/Doctors diagnose medical ailments -Nurse practitioners prescribe medications/Doctors have prescription writing privileges -Nurse practitioners inspect the body/Doctors perform physical exams -Nurse practitioners discuss ways to stay …
