Anyone who knows me, or have read my blogs, knows I enjoy shopping for clothing, pocketbooks, handbags etc. I know that sometimes, professionally, I will use my clothes to make a statement. For instance, during a recent four-day long hearing, I purposely wore very professionally looking, dark suits. To me, my choice of dress made a statement to the Judge and opposing counsel that I was in that courtroom as a professional ready to work and do battle.   A few days ago, I read ...

  Those of us with professional licenses have something in common, registration and continuing education requirements. Attorneys are required to reregister every two years and have completed twenty-four credits of continuing education, during the two year period. My husband, a chiropractor, has to reregister every three years and complete thirty-six hours of continuing education.     I have habitually completed my continuing education in the same way, taking a 6 or 7 credi...

  About two years ago I became a fan of French pressed coffee. I found the coffee was smoother than in my other preferred method, a Keuring. On weekends I happily used my French Press to make myself a treat; a better cup of coffee. The only issue with my French Press was that I found that I could not drink all the coffee I made in one cup. And when I poured the second cup, as the French Press carafe was made of glass, it was not as hot as the first cup.     About a year ago...

  For most of my adult life, I loved to sleep late on the weekends. Even when my children were young, when they would wake up earlier than me on weekends, I would pull them into my bed and let them watch television while I dozed.     Several months ago, all that changed. A friend wanted to attend Weight Watchers with me but was only available very early on Saturday mornings. So, in order to encourage her to go, I agreed to change my weekly Weight Watcher meeting to a very e...

  Ever since the United States reestablished tourism to Cuba, my husband and I talked about going. Our dream became a reality when we booked a cruise with friends to Havana out of Tampa for this September. That dream came crashing down this week when the United States government banned cruise ships from docking in Cuba. Within a day of the announcement, our cruise changed ports from Havana, Cuba to Cozumel, Mexico. Disappointment does not begin to describe how we felt.     ...

  The political issues involved in this topic aside, I am unsure about how I feel about Uber as a service. For the longest time I rebelled against Uber. I went to law school in New York City and always prided myself in my ability to easily hail a cab. While I also use subways often, yellow cabs were always my “go to” for short trips in the city.     When my children and friends started using Uber, I was resistant, remaining loyal to my yellow cabs. Recently, on a trip to La...

  My son recently broke up with his longtime girlfriend. I have been talking to him endlessly to help him through the process of healing from the hurt. In doing so, I have realized that it is much more difficult for the kids of today to break that connection and begin to move forward.     When I was young, when a relationship ended, you just stopped calling the other person or seeing one another. And, once you did so, you could begin moving on. Today, young people not only...

  As some of you may know, my daughter had been in the hospital for several weeks. She’s a soccer goalkeeper and broke her femur while playing (yes, she made the save). Her injury entailed extensive surgery plus numerous weeks of rehabilitation.     Early one evening, I arrived at the hospital, tired, stressed, and sad. As I pulled into the parking lot, I noticed a small group of medical professionals had gathered in the lot. Thinking there was a medical emergency in the lo...

Admittedly, I am writing this blog on Saturday afternoon, but I have only one thought running through my head. And I can’t seem to think about, or write, about any other topic today. My preoccupation is what will the final season of Game of Thrones bring? I don’t recall being so eager to watch the final season of any other television series than that of Game of Thrones.   Will you be watching? What are your thoughts now that winter is here?     ...
