Change is Good, Right?  Uggg... SURE it is. Yesterday I attended a Girl Scout meeting for Service Units in our Council. The annual gathering gives us a chance to connect, to review the state of the Council, girl membership numbers, and assess goals for our Service Units. We also learn strategies ...
How exciting it is watching the Olympics this year! It’s fantastic to see people breaking into gold, racial barriers being broken, and swimmers churning up the water in ways unseen before.  I always wonder how these athletes do what they do. Who saw the spark in them at the beginning? Was it alwa...
When I arrived at my client’s house, the children were out with grandma, allowing us time to take care of paperwork. We were almost finished when the smiling faces of their two young daughters appeared at the front door. Scampering in, they sat right down beside me at the table. “They were so exc...
A man jumps from an 8 story building. It's a long way to the ground, but when he lands, he's unhurt. He lands on solid ground with no parachute, no bungee cord. How is this possible?  When I was younger, I remember enjoying riddles like this. Maybe you did, too. Remember this one?When he walked i...

If you read my Stress blog entry a few days ago, you know I ended on a happy note by going home. Now for the rest of the story. I had installed Windows 10 because for weeks (months?) I had received the message that I only had a limited number of days to install it for free. More messages interspe...
A visit to the Container Store might sound boring but for my daughter, the Pop! Star®, it was anything but. She loves to organize things so walking into the store was like entering Mecca. As we walked through parking lot, approaching the entrance, she said, “Mom, you cannot do your usual routine ...
If you're a REALTOR, you know stress. You are intimately involved with it. But what do you do when it grabs you in its talons and threatens to fly up, up, and away with you? The past few days have been stressful due to a few problematic transactions. What makes them stressful is things not being ...
It was her father or her grandfather that was named Sylvester. I can’t remember which, but when she told me of the love she had for him, it was almost tangible. It was also a love so great that she had determined, from the age at which girls start to plan such things, that if she had a son, she w...
