Two Drinks at BlogHer

Two Drinks at BlogHer

Linda and I are at the annual BlogHer conference for women who blog! And I actually wrote a post about it this morning - over at my original site, SoCal Mom. Read it here.

A Good Day’s Work May Never End

A Good Day’s Work May Never End

I kind of hope I'll always work. Let me clarify. I hope I'll always want to work and be healthy to work as long as I want. The idea of working forever, or at least a long time, has always appealed to me and makes a lot of sense. Of course, it's always nicer if you...

Days 1 and 2

Days 1 and 2

I won’t bore myself researching how many thousands, or millions, of people have diabetes, are overweight, have stress and anxiety, and other unhealthy diseases or conditions that are often avoidable by healthy living. I am becoming one of them. It seems that while we...

Letting Go in a Dangerous World

Letting Go in a Dangerous World

We drove our little girl to the airport, watched her enter the terminal, and drove away. Mind you: That "little girl" is a 20-year-old young woman, and we've been doing this now for a couple of years - since she started college 2500 miles away from home, in Chicago....

The Grief Comes in Waves

The Grief Comes in Waves

My relationship with my mother was complicated, so I shouldn’t be surprised that grieving her loss is not what I would have expected, either.

A New Mother’s Day

Last December, our mother died. It was a short illness, started with flu-like symptoms, ended in sepsis. I knew it was very serious, but really never believed she'd die. She was 79, which doesn't seem old anymore. Mom was a shopper and she loved clothes. Nice clothes....

Happy H-Olive-Days!

Happy H-Olive-Days!

I like olives. I like ’em in martinis (which makes this a perfect subject for Two Drinks Away). And I’ve always enjoyed them as a snack. But I never expected to be writing a blog post about them.

Last Day Alone

Last Day Alone

Well, I've certainly done a lousy job writing a post every day. And, where did the past two weeks go? Right now I've got Philadelphia Story on TV. Kathryn Hepburn was nominated for an Oscar for this film. It's got Cary Grand and James Stewart. I wonder if young people...

Still Alone… Day 9

Still Alone… Day 9

I was born into a family of writers, but a writer I am not. So trying to blog, participate in the NaMaBlo, is difficult. It is frustrating because I have all sorts of thoughts bouncing around in my head, but when I sit down to write, I can't think of anything. Forcing...
