Footing the bill for college

A decade from now when my son does an Internet search on me and comes across this blog, I want him to read this post in which I state the following:

I love you, and I am not footing your entire college bill.…

Falling in love 101

When my son sees two people kissing, he often says, "Those two people are kissing and then they will go and get married." Evidently my sex talks with him have paid off. (Just kidding.) When I ask him about the leap from kissing to married, he shows me the various wedding pictures of my husband and I kissing right before we tied the…

Safety is one of my biggest concerns when it comes to going walking, going to an unfamiliar place, or spending time outdoors with my family, especially this time of year when it gets dark outside earlier in the evenings.  Having a cell phone is a great accessory but in the event of an emergency it is not always possible to dial 911 or reach…

Road Trip!

It was a simple quest.



Andrew and I were going to take a relatively quick 5 1/2 hour road trip to the Capital District so we could get India from college for the summer. 



But someone had decided her van wouldn't make the 30° grade of the Driveway From Hell over the winter and parked it. Not in the barn on the hill, where it would be protected. Nooo.  I parked her in the driveway and let her sit - under 3 feet of snow…

This is one fear I don't think I'll ever conquer

5:45am



That's what time it is right now and I'm as close to wide awake as I can get with less than an hour and a half of sleep. 



I love the weather.



Rain?



Love it!  Walking in it. Sitting on a porch watching it. The scent of it. Everything about it!



Snow?



As long as I don't have to go…

College Planning- The Prerequisite Course

Every job has its parts that we could live without.  For me, there is a significantly large part of my job that I am not a fan of. I mean, I really, really don’t care for it. College counseling.  Its not for me and is by far, my biggest pet peeve.  Which is unfortunate, because it takes up a large chunk of my time I feel would be better spent doing other things.

Let me begin with an…

In my acceptance email, they asked me for a few words of advice for their student parents. Considering I've been giving thought myself to…

The Sanitary Faux Pas

 

In the spirit of sharing embarrassing moments, I thought I'd relive another little doozy with y'all. Cause, really, what good is a humiliating memory if you can't share it with others?  This one, however, was TRULY mortifying because it took place during a time in my life when I hadn't yet learned to laugh at myself.

 

This went down eons ago when I…

Maria's Random Rants - The Problem With Desire

It’s a hard thing to want something, and I mean really want something, with all of your heart, and every bit of your being. So much so you can barely contain the elation in your voice when you talk about it, nor the flutter in your belly attesting to both extremes of excitement and apprehension. You find yourself struggling to keep the knot in your throat from rising just thinking about it, dreaming on it.



Yup, desire can do that to you.



Twenty years  of…
