When Worlds Collide
Last week, I had too many things going on, so I had to rearrange some priorities. I had an outpatient procedure on Friday so health came first.

What Are Your Distractions?
I can generally work with anything going on. As long as I have headphones or earbuds, I can drown out pretty much any annoying background noises. Sometimes, though, I can’t.

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
How is that for a throwback to childhood and Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood? But seriously wouldn’t it be great to have a large community of neighbors who are interested in what you have going on? I don’t mean in a nosy way, but in a genuinely interested way. Sometimes I really do. And the good thing […]Continue reading
Where Did My Mojo Go?
Today I had planned to invite you to subscribe to my newsletter. But the sign-up form isn’t playing nice with WordPress. So while I troubleshoot that, I thought I would share something else with you. Even though I don’t usually talk about it online, it’s no secret I’ve been dealing with Wound Care for far […]Continue reading
