All in Holidays/National Days
My son needed help with math so we enlisted the help of a tutor last summer. Well, not only did we find someone who cares a lot about my son and his education but she is truly a wonderfully thoughtful person. I think my son had about three weeks of tutoring when Karen, the tutor, came to greet us at the door. She told me that her chickens on her farm were laying eggs like crazy.
I recently went to Nashville, the new Vegas (Nashvegas), and I quickly learned why it’s a popular destination. It’s a haven for hosting bachelor(ette) parties or celebrating milestone birthdays. Seeing the bride-to-be’s and their entourages reminded me of the days that I too, was one of the girls showing up in a herd contributing to the memories of the last days of freedom for my girlfriend(s). I wondered if any of the bachelors, bachelorettes, 21st, 30th , 40th or 50th birthday celebrants were on a Nashville scavenger hunt?
I was recently asked by verywell.com to help them spread some information about Lupus. Um, hello?! WHAT AN HONOR! And it could not have been more fitting for me to include their information in a post when I’m shouting out to the world that May 10th is World Lupus Day!
Correct me if I’m wrong but I think every episode of the cartoon “Yogi the Bear “ has a scene in which Yogi steals a picnic basket from family campers at Jellystone.
Earth Day is coming up on April 22nd and I wanted to give a break to anyone who feels that they may not be up to society’s earth-friendly standards.
As I am preparing to host a GSD party on April 16, 2019, I am becoming fully aware that I am twice cursed when it comes to giving thoughtful pinches to teachers.
Goodness, when I reflect on my beer days, I realize that I drank a lot of beer when I was younger.
’m a big fan of watching videos that use the “time-lapse” feature. I think it’s so cool to see, for example, the US Bank Stadium being built in only a few minutes even though, once they broke ground, it took over 2.5 years to build.
When I was researching naps, I skipped over many scientific facts and the lists of benefits. To me, it was like “blah, blah, blah” when I checked various websites for nap information. I have already been a nap fan for years because I learned all about the benefits and facts when I became a mom.
When I was deciding whether I should write about Peanut Butter Lover’s Day , Strawberry Day, Day of Unplugging Day, Minnesota Day or Mulled Wine Day - I wrestled with the decision. From my perspective, there are too many thoughtful ways to celebrate any of those national days and I couldn’t decide which one to write about. What a great problem to have!
I was running on a treadmill in my basement when I randomly remembered that I may have red and white popcorn containers made with lightweight cardboard. As soon as I was done running, I opened up the cabinet and sure enough there were twenty-one popcorn containers. Yippee! The colors fit my theme for Valentine’s Day.
In my parenting class last week, we discussed our pre-teens and sexuality. Fun topic. About as fun as ripping off a hang nail - but it’s something you have to do at some point. I mentioned that when I see my daughter greet her girlfriends, they hug each other.
