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

The Silver Lining

Back in the days when I was a child, breaking a leg meant one thing: You came to school with a white or pink plaster cast, and everyone signed it. You hobbled around in school with crutches and got plenty of attention. By the time you were ready to have the cast removed, your cast was no longer white or pink, but a combination of ink colored signatures. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?  Yeah, right. But wait. There’s more. Share PostTwitterFacebookGoogle +1Email

Break a Leg!

“Break a Leg.” It refers to what well-wishers  tell people in show business before a performance.  “Hey, break a leg,” is kind of a good luck message to actors, a group of people who tend to be quite superstitious! But in actuality, nobody ever asks for a broken leg, do they? Several months ago, I posted about my newly engaged couple.  I explained at the time that I would be blogging less than usual due to the busy schedule of preparing a wedding while working full time as a music therapist. My writing passion would have to take a back seat. No Such thing as Vacation from Writing: But as writers know, we never do turn around and throw our writing passions to the back seat. Instead, we keep a back seat slot in our mind,  and every time something big or interesting happens, we jot them down or file them away in  our brain for future writing or blogging … Continue reading

Future Mother-in-law Prep: A Guest post by Beily Paluch

Just when I think I’ve written everything there is to write on a topic,  I remind myself to seek out other perspectives. Recently, I asked one blogger-friend to do that on a guest post for my blog. And on another occasion, another blogger-friend wrote a post for my blog right here. Both were from the perspectives of  daughters-in-law, and/or moms of little kids. Just the other day, I posted my review of the new book, “Boy Oh Boy,” the engaging guide for mothers of young boys, written by Beily Paluch. Share PostTwitterFacebookGoogle +1Email

“Boy Oh Boy!”- A Book Review

When I had my fifth son, friends and relatives seemed to think they had to console me.  Maybe they needed to – after all, I was overwhelmed….and it must have  showed. Apparently, moms of boys (and especially those moms with no girls) are deserving of sympathy. You see, back in those frantic days, it would have been really nice had I had the book, “Boy Oh Boy!” – Beily Paluch’s guide for mothers about the wonderful world of boys. Because if I had read this adorable and helpful book, maybe I would have breen more secure in my role as mom of boys. If nothing else, maybe I would have been confident enough to let the annoying comments roll off my tired and harried back. “Just think, you’ll have five wonderful daughters-in-law!” Or: “Now you have a basketball team!.” Yup – just a few of the comments from well-meaning friends, acquaintances and yes, even family.
