Spring Break

It’s Valentine’s Day soon, then it’s Spring Break. Even if traveling isn’t involved, I’ve found that marking Spring Break on my calendar in big bold yellow and orange marker reminds me that summer is right around the corner. And…if you are menopausal or post-menopausal, like me, it’s right about this time of year when a somewhat bigger gal is looking back at you in the mirror. Bigger than you...

A Lesson Learned

I spent my afternoon yesterday with a wonderful neighbor-friend of mine, Debbie, who recently retired from a 40 year nursing career, the last 20 as an End of Life Nurse Practitioner at a large local hospital.

Not the animals, but Papa and the boys. They parade through...

Expiration Dates and My Revelation

When I was a child, I don’t recall ever seeing an Expiration Date, or a Good-Until Date on anything. We took a sniff or two of the milk before pouring it on the oatmeal. We pitched the cottage cheese and the hard cheeses if they got moldy. Actually, I think my mom cut the mold off the cheddar then grated the formerly expired brick of cheese into that evening’s Mac and Cheese. Eggs were easy. If it stunk to high heaven when...
