School Lunch Memories

I remember the daily lunchtime march towards our school’s multi-purpose room that mysteriously transformed everyday into our lunch cafeteria by the stroke of 11:30am. My kindergarten class marched in unison with the first graders in a single formation, as if we were militant soldiers breaking for chow time. In perfect strides, the soles of our […]

Elevator Etiquette

A Call for Order…Is it me, or should there be a list of rules and guidelines posted on the wall beside all elevators? I crack up internally every morning while I’m waiting for the elevator in the parking garage. There is always that one employee that has to release an aroma of ignorance or unjustified […]

Holiday Cheer, Blues and Renewals!

Reflect, Recap and Renew — That’s what most of us do, or at least should do after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, just as we prepare to bring in a brand new year. December is the month that my procrastination really rips through my hidden perfection as I haven’t mastered the art […]

10 Things Girlfriends Should Never Share!

To have a set of girlfriends you can rely on for support through every important milestone in our lives is a blessing. Even when you’re in need for a shopping spree, you have a set of girlfriends you will call to support your shoe addiction, or your pocketbook infatuation. Girlfriends share everything, sometimes too much. […]

Reality TV

If your life was a television show, would it be a comedy, drama, soap opera or documentary? Of course I would have to say my life on TV would be Dramoperadytary — a comedy/drama/soap opera/documentary all in one.  The intro music to my show would probably change from day to day, depending on the type […]

The Art of Weakness

I have many weaknesses, and will shamefully admit that I am a softy for shoes. It may not be wise for me to volunteer this information and reveal that I wouldn’t be an easy target for someone to hold my valuables for ransom. See, I would be willing to let go of the precious items […]

Hoarders — Why do we hold onto things we don’t use?

I’m surrounded by items that have begun to pile up (small controllable piles) as unnecessary frustrations. Perhaps if I’d learn to recycle more at an earlier age, I wouldn’t harbor these thoughts.  The three main items that force me to grind my teeth on a daily basis are… Underwear – my underwear are categorized under two headings…menstrual cycle […]

Personal Space — 50 feet please!

Abiding the laws of personal space should be a requirement for every U.S. citizen. Seriously, how many times have you stood in the checkout line and felt someone breathing on your neck? Lately, I’ve found myself mouthing the words, “50 feet please!” as I stand in line waiting to use the ATM or in a […]

Balancing Acts

Extremists – That’s how I define me and my sweet- baby king. I am the “spastic, time is crucial, let’s go – let’s do this, it’s going to be now or never” chick, and he is “the tomorrow will take care of itself, there’s no need to rush, let’s just chill” type of dude. He […]

A Uniformed Society

If we drive the same car, wear the same clothes and date the same type of man, our world would be a safer place—you think? Sometimes I wonder if the world functioned on one set standard, the thought of “keeping up with the Jones’ would never cross our minds. I’ll even be the first to […]
