Networking

The word “networking” has been coming up for me a lot this past month. Up until last week, I had shunned all attempts by strangers or casual acquaintances to meet for coffee. I did this for a few reasons. One is my days off are precious, full of errands and me time. I guard themContinue reading “Networking”

Rudeness

  Disrespect, rudeness and being impolite are MAJOR hot buttons of mine. Lately those buttons have been pushed to their limits. When something bothers a person intensely, it’s likely because that person may hold themselves to a higher standard. You would never think to treat a person in the manner in which you are beingContinue reading “Rudeness”

(NOTE: This blog is a continuation of yesterday’s “Vasectomy” blog.) We used birth control until well after we were married. I kept saying, “Honey. I reallyContinue reading “Miracle”
