U2 and Linkin Park my life’s soundtracks

U2 and Linkin Park my life’s soundtracks

I grew up a HUGE fan of U2. I had them plastered all over my walls, purchased everything I could get my hands on, saw many concerts. I was one of those crazy fans who even stood outside entrance doors hoping to catch a glimpse of them. If there was an event Bono was at in NY, chances were I was there if I could be. I met 3 of 4 band members. I remember telling the Edge, thank you…

My cats

My cats

Not everybody knows this about me, but I had cats before I had a dog. My very first apartment with my soon to be husband, then ex-husband LOL, didn’t allow dogs. I was dying for a pet. One of my employees had a cat that had a litter of kittens and I got my first cat. We named her tipsy because for a cat she wasn’t quite so graceful. She would be walking across the back of the couch and…

Marriage & Divorce

Marriage & Divorce

It is a pretty looking day here but I always think that when the sun shines on the water. It isn’t even shining but the sky is adding this pretty yellow hue to the still water. Hard to do it justice from my chair. I’m excited to share happy news that my beautiful cousin got engaged. This was such exciting news. I honestly have been waiting for this news from her and her fiancé for a little bit knowing he…

Theme to Mahogany by Diana Ross

Theme to Mahogany by Diana Ross

I was watching an episode of Divorce on HBO when Sarah Jessica Parker’s character started singing the Theme to Mahogany. This song reminds me of my dad. Sitting by the piano listening to him play on a Sunday afternoon. This song and Windmills of Your Mind were my two favorite songs to hear. I danced at my wedding with my dad to this song. I’m waiting for my video of him playing it to keep forever. I’m available to record…

Leaving on a jet plane…a visit with my parents

Leaving on a jet plane…a visit with my parents

I think that I use that line every time I go to Florida. Although I know I’m coming back on Monday. I’m excited I haven’t seen my father in a year. That’s a long time. I speak to him frequently and we visit via phone but I miss his hugs and I’m really looking forward to getting my hug. My step mom and me, we were always up earlier than everybody so we always have morning coffee together. It became…

A place called Jugs and Strokers

A place called Jugs and Strokers

I was just turning 35 when my divorce started. My daughter was all of seven. I was losing my house because I couldn’t afford it by myself.  I already have MS now for eight years.  I pretended I wasn’t sad, scared, and everything was happy maybe for the sake of my daughter, maybe for the sake of myself, but looking back on things probably wasn’t the truth. I spent 10 years married three years before marriage with him. That was…

My heart is in pieces

My heart is in pieces

The outpouring of love and support has been so kind. Everyone who has ever owned and loved a pet understands the pain of losing one. Anyone that knows me, knows what Boomer meant to me. He was MY first dog. My dad had dogs when I was little but I didn’t live with my dad. I didn’t grow up with dogs in my day to day life. Boomer came right before my divorce started. We picked him up in April,…
