Yesterday, I made the decision to quit smoking. I wouldn't consider myself a heavy smoker. But, I have about a half a pack a day. But regardless, I know it's going to be incredibly difficult so I figured I'd ease myself in a little bit. With the goal of being completely done with them in a week or two. So, yesterday I … Continue reading I Want To Be A Quitter
Growing up, I didn't care much for meatloaf, but it was a staple dish at our house. We were the quintessential downeast Mainer, meat and potatoes kind of family. Now, my house consists of me, my husband and my 28-year-old brother. Most nights the decision as to what to have for dinner falls on my shoulders.

I'm not one to post about politics, but I've had some things on my chest for a while. All of them are coming to a head. And here seems like as good as place as any to voice them. The countdown to January 20th continues, and there is no infiltration in sight. No one is … Continue reading These are a few of my biglyest fears….
I've never seen "The Godfather". But, I have seen "You've Got Mail". Many, many times. In the movie, Meg Ryan's character, Kathleen, is at odds with a big business man named Joe Fox, whose company is about to put her's under. Unbeknownst to the both of them, they are each others secret online … Continue reading Going To The Mattresses
As the year comes to an end today, and we reflect on the year past, there are surely lots of things to be remembered. Good and bad. It's what we make of the year to come that matters most now. Looking at things with rose-colored glasses is difficult for some, and I am that "some". … Continue reading As my Meme would say – “To Us”
