Patience is a Virtue. Waiting…Not So Much

Here I sit, exactly 10am on a Wednesday morning, in a Student Union on a college campus in the middle of Kansas. I’ve been here before, long ago, when the décor smacked of the 70s and the people walking through seemed old and foreign to me. I remember coming here for various school events, for […]

Being Ready…or Not

The time is here. Tomorrow I’ll load my oldest in my car and drive him away. I’m leaving him in good hands, with good people, to embark on an amazing opportunity. He’s ready. I don’t think I am. I can’t help but think back to when I started college. I was two years older, sure, […]

On Big Dates and Bumps In the Road

One year ago tonight I went on a first date. It was the best first date I can remember. It had nothing to do with the food or even the concert that I’d been looking forward to for months. It was the best first date because of the guy. To be honest, I didn’t think […]

Girl Talk, Boy Bands and Gelato Lust

I’ve often wondered where I got my wanderlust. I don’t know my mother well enough to know if it came from her, but I’m pretty certain it didn’t come from dad. I look at my sisters and marvel at how we’re all so different, even though we were raised by the same people (for the […]

How My Blog Got Me In Trouble…Again

I did it again. No, not an impression of Brittney Spears (and for that, you’re welcome). “It” was say something on my blog that had absolutely nothing to do with anyone except–gasp–ME and pissing someone off in the process.  In reality, annoyed or saddened are probably more accurate word choices than mad, but whichever we […]

Inspired by Ephron: Lists

Nora Ephron passed away last month.  I’ve always been fascinated by her but am sad to admit that I never really learned much about who she was or what she was about. It’s easy to let the writers hide, I think; not that I think she was intentionally hiding, but when her stories and words […]

The Summer of Lists: An Update

No wonder I haven’t had time to blog! It’s been a busy summer. Some of you might remember that, in an effort to be mindful about doing things I want to do instead of just talking about things I want to do, I started a summer bucket list at the end of the school year. […]
