Do you believe in synchronicity – and not the song by Police, either – the idea! The idea that so beautifully describes what happens when you learn about something for the first time and then SEE IT EVERYWHERE! When I first learned about synchronicity, it was one of those lightbulb moments. Decades later, it’s a concept that still amazes me. Take the blog title for … Read the restContinue reading →
Happy New Year’s Eve!
New Year’s Eve has been a favorite as far back as I can remember. Even when I was young and spent the holiday babysitting, I would sit with my young charges and we would make lists of resolutions together. Let me tell you, it wasn’t any less exciting for me because I was the “grown up.” I wish I’d saved one … Read the restContinue reading →
It’s my second most favorite time of year everyone! Coming in at #2 just after Autumn, it’s….
“2/3 of my children returned to school week!” YEAH!

- to go to the bathroom alone
Yes, my friends and I had a girls weekend.

Are you outnumbered once summer rolls around? I know I am.
I’m happy to throw the schedule to the wind and not worry about what theme the kids have to dress for on a particular day. I’m relieved to not find out there’s a science project due the night before the science project is due. But there is one tiny downside…
…the hours of 8:30am … Read the restContinue reading →
The episode, “Need to Know Basis,” didn’t disappoint and really stuck with me. Act two is one of several episodes that deal with college drop out rates and what it takes to succeed. The US has a particularly high college drop-out rate, especially in community colleges. … Read the restContinue reading →
You know what’s little and goes a long way? No, not legos on the floor, but that’s an acceptable answer.
Yep, kindness. And it’s free too!
Recently, I read Whitney Hitt’s blog post about how kindness can be practiced on-line, both within the blogging community and in our relationships with the blogs we read. (I “know” Whitney because we’re both members of an amazing … Read the restContinue reading →
