It's Not Summer Unless There is an ER Visit
Zane had a cough.  He's had a cough for some time, and he'd already had one doctor visit for it at the beginning of June.  Just a random virus, the doctor said, and sent Larry and Zane home.  In the back of my mind, I thought of the possibility of allergies...

I'm A Little More Melty Than I Used To Be
When I was younger, air conditioning wasn't really a thing.  Sure, some of the places that we lived had it, but other places didn't.  The temperature didn't rise enough to be concerning.  We opened windows, and a pleasant breeze would move through the house...

Cable Company Circle of Life
For hundreds of years, our cable company was Time Warner.  Well, a really, really long time. Larry and I were happy with Time Warner.  Sure, they charged an arm and a leg, but we had eight limbs between us, and service was never a problem.  I had our credit...

And Just Where the Heck Have I Been?
In January I signed up for a 5k walk, the Chocoholic Frolic.  5 kilometers is a little more than three miles, and after pushing myself through all the cancer and surgeries and other events over the past three years, I felt that a little challenge was in ord...

Jury Duty is Stressful
I started off 2017 being selected for jury duty.  Not the normal, local, jury duty, where you spend a day downtown reading or playing on your phone until they tell you to go home.  That stuff is easy; I get to enjoy having quiet time to read and people watc...

MLK and Mindfulness
Back in the 1980s, when dinosaurs still roamed the earth, there was no day honoring Martin Luther King, Jr.  Dr. King was a Civil Rights leader, an icon, but there was no national celebration until then. I was in high school, and Stevie Wonder came to our s...

I Actually Do Hold Grudges
As I went through all that cancer nonsense, I had to let go of some things.  There was no point in being angry all the time, for instance.  As much as I wanted to rail and scream about my illness, it was bad for my health to dwell on it, so I let that go.  ...

Write A Letter. I'll Feel Better.
 On April 12 of 2016, there was a hailstorm of epic proportions in
San Antonio and the surrounding areas.  And when I say epic, I mean
downright frightening.  Every thud on the roof sounded as if it would break right
through the attic and right into our ...

100 Word Challenge: Sorry Not Sorry
I've been told I don't apologize enough.  I do tend to focus on a solution to a problem, even when I am the problem. Saying "I'm sorry" technically isn't a solution.  I've been working on this, trying to say " mea culpa " more often.  Except when I'm dealin...

The Smackworthy Of 2016
For the past few years, I've made a list at the end of December of people who just need one of those smacks upside the head.  You know what I'm talking about--a smack that reboots the brain, makes a person think twice before opening their mouth one more tim...
