Musical Memories: Finger Plays and Silly Stuff


When I think back on the fun and quality times with my children, I recall the music and singing. At one time or another,  my sons took piano  clarinet, violin and trumpet lessons. But that process of practicing and performing is not the music I remember as fondly as I do the finger-plays. The little ditty rhymes that I chanted with each of my sons when they were toddlers.

Why Our Adult Children Back Off Sometimes


Sometimes I smother…and hover over my children. It wouldn’t be such a problem, if my children were 10 or 11. But they’re not. In fact, my children are all adults, and as much as I tend to forget it, quite capable ones too. When I smother my adult children with too much advice and input, they tend to back off and share less.

Going Out on a Limb and other Corny Cliches


When someone tells me that I’m really taking my broken foot situation in stride, I smile at the pun…and the compliment.  But when people are so bold as to go out on a limb in their writing, calling attention to  cliches by inserting quotation marks, I simply put my foot down. Aaargh! Not another corny joke! What bothers me about puns is the utter lack of originality. Someone coined a phrase for a common life phenomenon, and another person pulls that phrase out of their word bag, plugging it into his or her writing. Share PostTwitterFacebookGoogle +1Email


8 Ways I Broke Into My Diet Program After Breaking My Ankle


I’ve struggled with weight, and  battled sticking to any sort of food program – in particular  a Weight Watchers program.  So when I broke my leg, I had a feeling that any pounds I’d lost over the past weeks through hard work, would be quickly gained back. Broken Leg = Couch Potato? I was forced to bring my active life to a standstill.  As per doctor’s orders, I’ve been home for long stretches of time in bed with my right foot elevated. I haven’t  walked in shoes, nor have I driven a car for several months. Share PostTwitterFacebookGoogle +1Email


5 Unique Reasons I am Not Bored while Stuck at Home


It’s the first question everyone asks me, usually after I tell my story of how I broke my ankle. After I share that my doctor has forbidden me to get out of bed except to go to the restroom. How he has me lying with my foot elevated on several pillows to keep the swelling down. How I have not gone to work or stood on both feet, walked, or driven a car for six weeks. It’s the one thing friends, relatives and acquaintances want to know.  And they ask with utmost sincerity,  a worried look on their face, and extreme sympathy in their voice. They mean well and think their question will bring me comfort and validation. The question? Share PostTwitterFacebookGoogle +1Email
