As bloggers are returning from BlogHer, their recap posts are going up all over the internet. I ventured to read a few last night, even though I had no desire to actually go to BlogHer. It seemed to be such a huge, overwhelming get together… a sort of sorority party that I wasn’t invited to. I’m okay with that, really. I couldn’t afford it even if I had wanted to go.
When they called to let me know that they were sending me former Washington State Senator Linda Smith’s new book, I said, “Okay, thank you!” I should have known what I was thanking her for, considering Linda’s organization, Shared Hope International, is my heart charity.

15 Years ago today, I woke up very early in the morning, and took my car, through the slush and rain, to a car wash. It was 34 degrees outside at 6am, as I washed my car. My fingers turned red, my hands hurt, and I ended up getting wet because this was a DIY […]
Several years ago, we moved my Gramma into an adult family home. She had sold her condo, and the family was called in to clear it out. Being her only grandchild, I had the lovely position of first decisions on what I would like to have or what to pass on to cousins. One thing […]
Well, one of my screen names anyway. I came back with the usual blog posts and forum posts, but one other thing too, and I’m not sure how to take it. Someone whose blog I read on occasion, and have commented on, is using part of one of my comments, with my screen name attached, […]
