It has been over ten years since I retired from full-time practice and spent three months volunteering and traveling in Southeast Asia. One of the best parts of my trip was spending time in the remote Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. It was their monarch who defined the concept of Gross National Happiness (GNH) to measure quality of life. And Bhutan is the only country in the world that puts happiness and general well-being at the heart… Continue

Yea, I'll admit it. I've been a bit lazy both with blogging and reading blogs that I follow.
In fact, this morning Google Reader showed I had a whopping 185 unread blog posts. Yikes!

17,036 cherries is a lot of cherries....(I hope they… Continue

Do you ever have one of those days where everything is going PERFECT? No melt-downs during breakfast (from the toddler or the husband), two hour nap (for the toddler and the husband) and an early evening of shopping for the mommy! A few Saturday's ago, this was my perfect day, of course until we got to the shopping part.
You see, just as we were coming off the interstate ramp pulling onto a main street, we were rear-ended. Call me what you want but I will admit when I got out of my car to… Continue

Against my better judgement, I opted to take all three girls to the grocery store this morning as opposed to going at midnight last night. It was not a decision made by a wise, seasoned Mother, but one made by a tired, confused Mommy. By the time I got the girls to bed, gathered my list and my coupons, I would have literally gotten to the store 30 minutes before they closed.
So, this morning, armed with 4 hours of sleep, coffee gone cold from neglect, and three energetic, excited… Continue
