It’s almost a new year and I have given many thoughts to New Year’s Resolutions for myself and my family. As the years go by, my children are getting more and more like little humans and less like babies. My business is steady and I love the freedom of creating my own hours and fitting […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I was sweaty and worn out one day last week. I had gone to my high impact dance aerobics class and I had completed a kettlebell workout. I had walked around. I had also led several training sessions and demonstrated many different moves. I finally had a chance to sit down on my duff, so I fired up my […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

For weeks now, one of my good buddies had been harassing and pleading with me to watch the movie, “Dead Poets Society.” I have to admit that my movie repertoire from the ’80s and ’90s can be sad. I am, indeed, a sad product of way too many books and top 40 music in my teenage years. I lived a combined […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
To quote the famous song: “It’s summertime and the livin’ is easy…” In my house, livin’ easy is not the reality. However, our livin’ is more pronounced and spiritual. It is more solitary and less scheduled. The piles of novels on my end table have replaced mounds of school worksheets and permission slips. The ‘get up and go’ morning […]Continue Reading...
