  This week I have been thinking a lot about, and discussing, trust and forgiveness. My good friend’s significant other, whom she has been with for a very long time, did something that violated her trust (no he did not cheat on her). Since then he has shown genuine remorse and significant introspection about the nature of his actions and why they were wrong.     Now he is looking to my friend to forgive him. And that’s why the interplay of trust and forgiveness have dominat...

  Sleep was the topic of discussion this morning in my Weight Watchers meeting. I was surprised to learn about the importance of sleep with respect to weight loss. But the discussion went way beyond that. We discussed the importance of a good night’s sleep for stress relief as well as basic productivity.     I was hardly the only one in the meeting to talk about my difficulties with getting a good night’s sleep. Recently, I find myself having trouble falling asleep and, the...

  My husband and I are finding ourselves with a shortage of good television to watch. We are still mourning the loss of Game of Thrones. We generally DVR the programs we want to watch and, lately, the DVR is relatively empty.     We both look to television to help us, momentarily, forget the tension in our lives and destress. I enjoy programs like Grey’s Anatomy (been watching it from the beginning) and Shark Tank. My husband, on the other hand, is still enjoying The Black...

  There are two types of people in this world, those that jump out of bed when the alarm goes off and those that hit the snooze button. I am a snoozer. I hardly ever get up when the alarm goes off. I hit the snooze button at least once, or twice, every day. In fact, I generally set my alarm earlier than I need to get up, anticipating that I will hit the snooze button.     My husband, however, jumps out of bed immediately when the alarm goes off. It astounds me every time;...

  How good are you at saying good-bye?     This week my stepson moved out of our house and into an apartment in Manhattan. He’s starting work in two weeks in a large law firm in the city so he wanted to move in before work began. This is all good. We are incredibly proud of his hard work in law school that culminated in him being hired as a first year attorney. And, given the extensive  hours he will probably be working, moving into the city is, no doubt, the best move for...

  I often find it interesting as to where the comments on my blog will take the discussion. Recently, the comments to a blog I wrote about fast food centered on the merits of coffee in the morning. While the topics may be somewhat related, it is not the direction I expected the discussion to go.     Nancy recently wrote a blog attesting to her admiration of teen environmental activist Greta Thunberg. That blog resulted in an, off the blog, email conversation between myse...

Most of you are my friends on Facebook. If you’re not, I invite you to friend me. Facebook is my social media of choice. I feel comfortable using it. I check it a few times a day and post often.   I have accounts on Instagram and Snap Chat. I generally use those accounts to monitor my kids, follow certain lifestyle or cooking accounts, or some celebrity accounts. But I rarely, if ever, post on Instagram or Snap Chat. My kids tell me that people "my age" do not use Inst...

  As I am writing this blog, I am sitting at my desk eating an apple. I’m not usually one for midafternoon snacks. I was at the Farmer’s Market,  at the courthouse on Tuesday and the apples looked so good. So I bought a few for home and left a few in the office refrigerator.     It's very surprising to me, how much I am enjoying these few moments, taking a short break, and eating my apple. So much so, that I felt compelled to write a blog about it.  This afternoon pick me ...

  For many years I have donated money to The Council of Jewish Women’s Back to Store. Succinctly stated, The Back to School Store is an annual two day event where children of families in financial need are given the opportunity to “shop” for everything they need to go back to school; socks, underwear, a pair of pants, a shirt, sneakers, a winter coat, hat, tooth brush, and a backpack. All the items  given to the children are donated or paid for with the money that is raised. ...

  Jane Jacobs posted a link to a New York Times piece this weekend entitled, “Finding Myself in My Mother’s Calendars.” Reading it made me think about my mother’s address book. After my parents passed and we were cleaning out their belongings, I took several small items one of which was my mom’s address book and one of the others was my father’s wallet.     Every so often, as I did this weekend, I’ll find myself just reading through my mother’s address book. In many ways, i...
