The Grand Canyon is Definitely Grand
Tuesday, June 14, 2011      11 comments

I am still trying to process the sights I saw at the Grand Canyon, and I still keep thinking I saw a Hollywood digitized scene or a monstrous photoshopped view. It really is Grand and I only was on the South Rim. ... Read more

I thought Oahu was gorgeous but Sedona definitely is just as pretty. I was there last week with three dear friends and we thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful place. Here's the view from our balcony where you can see Snoopy Rock in the midd... Read more
The Tale of the Tooth
Wednesday, May 18, 2011      6 comments

Two weeks ago I snatched a mini 3 Musketeers bar from my freezer, popped it in my mouth, and fractured my canine tooth. It can't be capped, crowned, glued, bridged, or fused. It's just like Humpty Dumpty after the fall. I called my former den... Read more

I went to The Compassionate Friends conference this weekend in Frankfort, Ky. TCF is a national organization for parents who have a deceased child. The common questions everyone asked were how long ago, what happened, and how old was the child... Read more

And I should know, as I think I now have a Master's Degree in it. To be honest (and why do people feel the need to say that. Does that imply they're normal mode is dishonest?), I am in a funk. What is a funk you may ask? It's a monster case ... Read more

Back in December, on the plane to Hawaii, I noticed I had a "sore" spot on my gum. Once you find those spots, you push on them daily to see if they're still there. Mine's been there daily - never causing me pain unless I pushed on it. At th... Read more

Turn up your speakers. This pup will blow you away. This is what I had to listen to working from home today.... Read more
No Wonder My Butt's So Big

I have a lot of faults, but honesty is not one of them. So I'm going to be brutally honest in this blog. No wonder my butt's so big because my head is apparently in there, too! I need to yank my head out of there and get in back in the weight... Read more
This Wacky Weather

Since Thanksgiving I have been working very hard to keep positive and not fall into a miserable pit of depression. The weather is not helping one bit. It has snowed EVERY week at least once (sometimes four times) since Thanksgiving. This week... Read more
The Winter of My Discontent

Once again (with feeling) -- I am sick of snow. I am sick of cold. I am sick of winter. I am sick of gray skies and no sun. I need change... I also needed change in my diet. That is something I can control unlike the weather which I ca... Read more

When I was a kid I liked snow. You wouldn't have to go to school. You could build snow forts, and snow men, and have snowball fights. Your mittens and top of boots would develop the mini-ice balls that wouldn't disappear until they melted onc... Read more

I'm home, exhausted, jet-lagged, with blistered toes. Here's one last pic of the sunset on Waikiki Beach on my last night there. ... Read more

Yesterday I visited Pearl Harbor which was much more touching than I had anticipated. I thought a lot about my grandmother while there. Her three sons, two were twins, had all enlisted in the Navy the day after Pearl Harbor. One twin became a... Read more

Yesterday my nephew's gf took me on a tour of the island away from Honolulu and Waikiki. She had lived on the island for 3 years so she was my private tour guide. My senses are still reeling from what I saw -- the gorgeous beaches on one side ... Read more
