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 …
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 …

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 …
I thought it would be great to take an excerpt from HOUSE CALL HEROINE and use it as my next post.  Just enough info to set the tone for the book, so when it comes out you’ll be first in line to buy it! (The therapist said to say positive things out loud and they …
Well I made it past the first 100 pages of editing and I got all excited because I  thought I would finally be able to send it off to the agent today.   All I had to do was sit down and write a one to two page synopsis of my book. But holy hell, do …
