The other day I was taking a break from the daily routine and took a walk around a park near a marina.

I’ve taken a bit of a blogging break and I will continue but since it’s 5:00 a.m. on a Saturday and I’m on my second load of laundry I thought I might as well sit here with coffee and have a bit of a chat with you. 😃

Blah.Continue reading “Sounding like a broken record (sorry not sorry)”

When I posted that picture of me in pig-tails, thanks to the teen girl and her hair-styling implements, a couple of people commented that I look young. Note: I am not young. No, really. I’m not young. (Also, what is young?) As most of you probably know I am a mom of teens. I suspect that you think of me as GenX. I am.
