It’s like riding a bike…..

How often do people use that analogy when speaking to others about trying some long-lost activity that they are afraid they’ve forgotten?  I hear it often because supposedly one can’t forget how to ride a bike. I’ll be testing out that theory today. I haven’t regularly ridden a bike in over 20 years.  I never [...]

Have You Ever Found Yourself in a Style Rut?

Have you ever wished that Stacy London and Clinton Kelly from TLC’s "What Not to Wear" could take you away on a shopping spree and tell you what looked good on you?  Well, that’s where I’ve been lately.  I started struggling with my clothes last semester.  Many would say I looked fine, and maybe I [...]

The little scars left behind

Today is a bittersweet day. Today is my son's annual IEP meeting/3-year evaluation. It's our last at his current school. I am early for the meeting since I had to get the boys to school on time, so here I sit in my car, pondering what will happen during the meeting. I always go into [...]

Time to “rock” 2013!

How I’ve spent my summer vacation

According to an app I have on my iPhone, school starts in 8 days and 20 hours or so.  Exciting stuff, right?  Eh, I'm not sure how I feel about it right now.  Last year, I was really excited and this year I am nervous for some reason. Maybe it's because I know what I [...]
