Sand Pail List

My Sand Pail List

When creating bucket lists were all the rage, I never made one.  Why?  Not because I didn't have a million things I wanted to do before I was too old to do them, more like I didn't want to be reminded of all the things I couldn't do for one reason or another.  I know, cup half empty, right?  Well, I came across this spin off idea of the bucket list in my Better Homes & Garden magazine (BTW, call me old for subscribing, I DON'T CARE, I LOVE IT) called a sand pail list.  Basically instead of … Read More>

Ohio BBQ Beef


We had an odd set-up at my last office.  My practice and a competing OB/GYN practice were on the same floor of our medical plaza.  When patients got off the elevator, they turned right to our office or left to theirs.  There were many confused patients and when I first started, even I was confused!  Our offices shared quite a few things, including the employee break room.

How I Survived One Year

I did it. I survived being a stay-at-home-mom for one year.  ONE YEAR!  You really don't know how much of an accomplishment that is. Or how much it has changed me. When I told friends and family that I was going to stay home with my daughter, there was shock and surprise.  Why?  Because I was the person who worked ungodly hours because I enjoyed it.  I was the one who poured over financial reports at 11 o'clock at night and sent emails much to the dismay of my colleagues.  I was … Read More>

Mighty Fine

Recently I had the opportunity to attend an online screening of the independent film, Mighty Fine followed by a live chat with two of the actors in the movie, Chazz Palminteri and Jodelle Ferland.  Written and directed by Debbie Goldstein, Mighty Fine is a fictional story yet draws on Debbie's experiences as a child living with an abusive father. The movie is set in the 70's and is centered around the Fine family.  Joe Fine can be charming, charismatic and downright mean.  When things are … Read More>
