My husband and I were there to watch UD beat Del State and win the Governor's Cup again. We also had the opportunity to see a friend of our's daughter … Continue reading Football Season & Me
Just 47 minutes early of arriving exactly on her due date, our first grandchild, Gracie Rose, entered this world. None of us have been the same since. It's another person to love unconditionally and we all couldn't be more excited! My eyes have been leaking quite a bit this week, but all with pure joy. … Continue reading I’m a Nana Now
I wasn’t always a fan of President Obama, but I cannot say the man wasn’t a good president. This list I have seen on many valid news sites as well.

Obama pushed through a controversial, $8o billion bailout to save the car industry.

When the term "white privilege" first was being tossed around, I found it offensive. What do you mean I'm privileged? I was barely making ends meet.

In 12 days I get back into the whirlwind of auditions, rehearsals, set build, performances and set strike and I can't wait! If I could move up the auditions a week I would as I am that pumped to get started! The audition process is an interesting beast. For the actors it is pure stress. … Continue reading Looking Toward The Theatrical Future

I live in the city of Wilmington. That's probably where things went wrong right from the get-go. I will admit that some of the outskirts of Wilmington are nice, but within the city limits is another thing. Let's start with the violence: Incidents by year (Latest incident: Jul. 30, 2017) Annual Total Year-to-date (Jan. 01 - … Continue reading City Living Is Not All It’s Supposed to Be
Okay, I know I've been awfully quiet on the blog-front for a few months now. Partly that had to do with life getting chaotic. Another part had to do with health. And another part was I didn't know what I wanted to talk about. Let's start with the chaos from early Spring. I had 3 … Continue reading Long time…no blog…
Prioritizing what is important in life is something we all do, either consciously or not. We do it in everyday decisions that reflect our priorities. Do we do what we promise we will? Do we check in with our family and friends? Do we do something for others? Do we focus on ourselves? How we … Continue reading Priorities
