Has an unplanned moment ever hit you so intensely that you, in reactionary response, mixed-up all of the rules of rational behavior and decision making?  When life gives you a sour lime, darn it…you better have the knowhow to make a Cherry Limeade.  Even with my three years of intense limeade training at Sonic Drive…

Any gift ideas for my “hard to buy for” husband?  Saturday is his birthday and I am clueless on what to get.  In my opinion, he has everything he needs plus extra.  Last year I shopped at my fave, TJ Maxx, and picked up a pair of very nice Perry Ellis dress socks (although we…

I think about the decisions and choices that I have made over the years.  Would I go back in time and change things if I had the opportunity? Well, I wish I hadn’t gotten married the first time around so that I would have never gotten divorced, but then I wouldn’t have my beautiful baby…
