1/28/2013: Snow Day!    Monday, January 28, 2013

I love snow days! They are made even better when I don't have to go out in it. One of the pleasures of working from home is having two days off with Mr. Virgo. What a great guy! For those of you who don't know, I met him on match.com. I had been single for several years and was finally ready to put myself back out there. But I had been married for 20 years when my ex and I split up so I had no idea how to be in a relationship again. It was intimidating to think of having to go through the whole "get to know you" process all over again.

1/23/2013: Mom    Saturday, January 26, 2013

Nine years ago tomorrow, I lost my mom. She was only 78 and was sick for just 5 days and was gone. When I tell you I had no time to prepare, you might think that's silly. After all, she was 78, right? I just never let my mind go there, not even when we lost my grandma. She lived to be 93 so I had no reason to believe my own mom wouldn't live at least that long. But alas, that was not to be. I had been talking with her all that week and she was feeling bad, short of breath, weak. I encouraged her to go to the ER but she would have none of that.

1/5/2013: Swim Meet    Saturday, January 26, 2013

Neither of my children were on swim team so I had no idea what an ungodly time of day these parents get their kids up for a meet. We were on the road at 5:45am desperately searching for the nearest open Starbucks for our morning latte. Apparently, space is at a premium at these shindigs. If you don't arrive early enough to stake out your turf, you may be one of the unfortunate souls who stands for two hours watching little tadpoles flailing their arms across a 7 lane pool. My grandchild is one of these little water bugs.

1/3/2013: Transitions    Saturday, January 26, 2013

Whenever I make a huge change in my life, I am always faced with 'buyer's remorse". It may be a week, or a month, or a year later but eventually that feeling creeps over me and makes me question if I made the right choice. Of course, hind sight being 20/20, I can look back and very clearly see how things could have gone differently, however, when you are in the midst of the forest, it is quite difficult to discern how many trees there are.
