  One of my partners was in the office last week. I have to admit I was jealous. Seeing her on Zoom sitting at her desk made me want to be sitting in my office right next door. We have decided to reopen slowly and so I know that I will not have the experience of sitting next door for a little while – but still. She indulged me and toured around with her phone, showing us all of the new partitions and safety items. Then, because I asked her to, she walked right into my o...

I think about my father all the time. He was one special guy. Fiercely loyal to his family, smart, honest, and hard working. I think about how our lives, and in particular my mom’s, would be different if he were still with us. And, I think about the things that were quirky and unique to him. He danced in a special way that as a family we often imitated. We would be at a party with music playing and someone would yell “Do the Poppy”. He loved that. He saw good in the wor...

  Yes, it has arrived. Phase 2 on Long Island. Truth is that I had started to enjoy referring to my husband and my son as Fluffy and Puffy. Lots and lots of hair growing in this house. Very much the “quarantine effect” for the men. But haircuts became legal this week on Long Island and both Fluffy and Puffy were able to get appointments with the barber. Just the fact that they now had to make an appointment made it different to start. But the barber shop was clean, ...

  When my children were young, we didn’t use the word “hate” in my house. Instead, when a particularly strong emotion moved us, we said “disliked with a hot burning passion”. I really disliked my blog last week with a hot burning passion. I had hesitated to write about what was really on my mind and so I wrote a silly piece about my change in shopping habits. I hesitated because I couldn’t formulate the words that I wanted to use. I’ve been working on them all week. Her...

I do not wait on line anymore to shop, unless of course it is the supermarket or Costco last weekend. Instead, I shop online more and more. I kind of like it. Pre-COVID, my weekend was often spent running errands. Multiple stores, multiple items, multiple trips. Well, those days are over. Now instead, I sit and shop online for items that I never would have purchased this way. Sure, it takes some of the fun out of reading labels and enjoying the shopping experience, but I...

  These are strange times. Grocery shopping now is always an adventure. (Yes, I am still going albeit with utmost caution and protection and only when absolutely necessary). Forget about going with a pre-determined list. Flexibility is the key. My supermarket is rationing items. Frozen vegetables, of all things, are restricted. Four to a shopper. And then, the question is choice. Broccoli is abundant. Corn is plentiful. Peas, on the other hand, for some reason are ...

  As the spring semester of my son’s sophomore year in college comes to a close, I'm not going to lie -- he does miss being on campus.  But an interesting phenomenon has unfolded in my house. Eric is a chemical engineering major. He has a pretty rigorous course load and there is little room for courses outside of a science and math curriculum. But, to fulfill a requirement, he took an American history course this semester covering post-Civil war period through the present. ...

One morning a few weeks ago, I woke up to a series of curious emails in my inbox. One after the other – Amazon, Venmo, Paypal, Netflix, . . . No, I had not authorized a change in my password on any of these accounts in my sleep. But somehow, each had been changed. I suddenly had strange email addresses attached to all of my accounts – and I was locked out of all of them. For the next day or so, it kept happening. Less important platforms – Spotify access does not really ch...

    [Guest Blog by Shelley Simpson] As we anxiously await the grand opening of the future, I’ve been intrigued by the notion of reimagining what it will look like: Suburbs looking a bit more like cities with space set aside for socializing - grabbing a coffee and sitting with a friend instead of using the drive-through; Cities with less traffic, more open spaces, gardens and more pedestrian friendly promenades; More “happy hours” (with or without alcohol on line and ...
