  Cheer*lead*er: A noun, -An enthusiastic and vocal supporter of someone or something.   Ever since I can remember, I wanted to be a cheerleader. My mother would ask me at the start of every school year, “what do you want to be when you grow up.” To her dissatisfaction, every year my answer was always the same. I wanted to be a cheerleader. She used to encourage me to “play the sport”, to “be a participant in the sport, not a cheerleader for other players.” In hindsight, I k...

Disruption can carry positive and negative connotation. Personally, disruption is a catalyst for fresh ideas. A shake-up, if you will. Stirring, while uncomfortable, can be life changing. Usually an outside force disrupts us to go another direction. Immediately, we fight the change and push back to “normal”, or maybe the word “normal”could be interchangeable with “comfortable.” In discomfort, we grow. Some of my most difficult situations, where I could not see my way through ...

Finally! The end is in sight. December of 2018, my husband and I started building our new home. We bought the lot and began the selections process. It was supposed to take 8 months. Until, the wrong siding went up. That had to be taken off. Then, the windows in the primary bedroom were placed too close together. The windows had to be pulled out and redone. It was one comedy of errors after another. Then, March of 2020 rolled in. Supply chain stopped, no work allowed. Constru...

Yes! You read it right. I decided to load up on more knowlege, in conjunction with my amazing career. I'm a girl from the Midwest and decided to choose a school that speaks to my roots, with a robust reputation in Behavioral Sciences. As of today, I am a registered student at Purdue University in Indiana, pursuing my degree in Industrial Psychology. In addition to having my Series 7, 66 and pending insurance credentials, I'll be a trained "intense listener". With the changing...

One very COMMON denominator in our Gotham family, is the love for our family pet. Much joy comes from my favorite critters. Me, Redford, SLIM, my pick-up truck, the open road, and some Steven Tyler. ...

The best part of my trip? When my little brother leaned over at the Fourth of July party and said, “ya wanna go get the four wheelers and go for a ride?” Just like when we were kids. I said, “yeah!” Off we went. Zipping by the small crowds, headed into 60 acres of open space. Aaron, leading of course. Dirt flying into my freshly washed hair, bugs hitting my sunglasses, tight turns and mud puddles ahead. It was AWESOME! I was wearing my white tennis skirt and my Torresdale ...

Picture this midwest evening.... 5 nieces and nephews, sitting in the back of my son’s pick-up truck, watching the sun go down; playing a little Kenny Chesney in the background, whilst the deep voices of the bullfrog weigh into the conversation. Sweet, right!? Evidence of a frisbee toss, badminton gone bad, and silly wiffle golf ball tosses, aimed at each other, admit our demonstration of family love and of our competitive nature with one another. Deep chats, belly laughte...

Here we go! My one and only, amazing son and I are taking a 12 hour road trip to visit family in Illinois. Just he and I, the open road, snacks and lots of conversation. Many years ago, 19 or so, I placed my son in the backseat of my car at 9pm and drove through the night, peaking into the Chicago skyline at about 5am the next day. We arrived at Mom’s by 7am and Patrick was ready to play. The drive feels much more daunting than I remember. Jumping into the car, driving acro...

Creating stabilization in an unstable situation, can be helpful to ourselves, our friends and family. Especially now. Placing ourselves back at the helm of life, can be difficult, but it is very important to try and reframe our thoughts. Our social situation reminds me of being tossed at sea, in the middle of a storm; wondering when, or if its going to be over. My gal pals and I were discussing the top traits that independent people share. After listing 15 people that were to...

I’m obsessed with my new Peloton! As soon as our power came back on, I hit the bike. The instructors are from all over the USA and the UK. Streaming from California to New York, Canada and London. I can ride LIVE, or hit a virtual trail. New friends, sending High-Fives through each intense breath. Today, my girl Robyn from Brooklyn, lined up some Lady Gaga, my girl Madonna and some songs from Rent! Positive and full of life. Each ride reminds me of how precious and enjoya...
