Sorry…Not Today

No, I’m sorry. I can’t. The children are home. I *actually* could get a sitter and join you for dinner or shopping or some other outing – but I’ve only got a limited amount of time. See – you know that I’m one of “those” parents. I’m divorced. Even eight years after the fact, my Read More

The Eyes Have It!

What is the first thing that you do every single day (I mean after you hit the snooze button)? When did that step in your routine begin? Every morning, first thing when I get up, I turn to my bedside table and grab my glasses.  I’ve been wearing glasses since I was two years old. Read More
