I took a little side tour on my Christmas shopping to share these thoughts: Everything I had in mind to write this week went out the window starting last Friday afternoon. Just like the rest of the nation – the rest of the world – my feelings have gone from shock to sadness to frustration and back to sadness. Those of you that are getting to know me have by now realized that I am quite private on my political beliefs and my social beliefs. I’ve gotten a little stronger in being able to talk about my spiritual beliefs – since in the past I have been rather shy talking or writing about … [Read more...] about Thoughts on December 21…
This is a series of "Gifts Outside the Box". Different ideas for presents for everyone that you love in your life. The following is article two: “Mom. Mommmy. Moooom. Mother. Karen. Mom!” “What?” “Hi.” I have my very own Stewie, in the form of a white, four-legged furry creature. He’s a tad bit demanding. Those of you that have Terrorists – I mean Terriers – will understand. Charlie is a Westie wanna be. I say that only because his gene pool is quite shallow and he doesn’t quite make the mark - a typical puppy mill puppy.

Almost a year has passed since our big move to the city. It feels like so much has happened since then. At this time last year, our old house was completely torn apart.

“What are you reading?” asked my husband. “I’m alternating between “50 Shades”, “Hunger Games” and “Gone Girl”. With a little bit of Wayne Dyer thrown in. Oh, and “A Tale of Two Cities”.” “You are reading “A Tale of Two Cities”?” “Well, no, actually, it was a free download.
