Most people (83%, approx.) felt that Peter (and Amy, by association) made a mistake when it came to not letting Beth know about Peter’s business trip and arranging for cohabiting girlfriend Amy to be their children’s caregiver while he was away.
But, Beth was pissed at me. Why?Read More
My friends, Beth and Peter, are divorced and have two children. Their divorce was amicable, and they reached many agreements outside of court. Peter has moved on to a new, serious relationship with Amy while Beth is currently single. So, navigating this change has been a bit interesting, but they’re handling it swimmingly.
Especially since Peter and Amy recently moved in together.Read More
I don't like sweating. I was the kid in gym class who walked the mile run as much as possible because I didn’t want to go to my next class a sweaty mess. I made an exception for dance, but it was a different kind of sweat than running around a track or a tennis court in the sun.

I remember being mortified that my mom had an unflattering (according to me) photo of me on her desk at work. I told her I didn’t like that photo and yet — there it was — for all who entered her office to see. And, since she worked in the Capitol, a lot of people saw it.

You know when you have to fill out paperwork (usually for a new doctor) and you get to the section of Occupation and Employer? I have no idea what to write. The first time, I panicked and wrote N/A. Yep. I N/A’d myself. I was saying that I am not applicable and everything I do on a daily basis is not worthy of a title.Read More
Speaking of manners…
I despise waiting rooms. It might be because I’m overly patient and usually wait a very long time before speaking up and saying, “How much longer until I’m seen?” It’s because I’ve worked on the other side of the desk for a long time, and I sympathize. So, I wait.Read More
Did you see this video? Maya Angelou corrects a young woman for calling her ‘Maya’ while asking a question. She tells her to call her Ms. Angelou because, well, the young lady just hasn’t earned the right to call her anything but.Read More
