My small successes this week (from a parenting perspective) are:
1. I hired a mommy's helper for the summer, so I can move about the house freely once in a while, (such a huge relief when my husband works long hours).
2. Today I escaped to the basement and cleaned it out while my teenage helper was upstairs with the kids.
3. I spent an hour at a nursing home today with my oldest son, helping the elderly play Bingo. In the car ride home, we talked about what was fun and interesting about helping "the wise grandmas and papas in the retirement home."

Dear Internet Traveler,
Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
