One day at a time

Today at 1pm I am taking my FCM & PBL exams with rest of the class. To say I am nervous about my classmates’ reactions to me would be an understatement.  In fact, I am more nervous about what will go on BEFORE the test, than the actual test itself.  But I can’t hide forever.  It’s just so hard, being strong for the family and then breaking down at odd times, whenever I am alone.  I have to thank my…

Houston and I have been to more weddings this year than I can count on my fingers. The funny thing is, 10:1 of them have been his friends getting hitched, not mine. Finally, last weekend, we went to the wedding of one of my friends. Better than friend, she is my Big Sis! And no, I did not spontaneously spawn an older sister–she’s my Big Sis of my sorority, Alpha Xi Delta. And I am her Lil Sis. You typically…

Women vs. Men

I find it interesting that women complain on and on about the burden of being female: menstruation, menopause, childbirth, breastfeeding, osteoporosis, etc. But aside from autoimmune diseases, women really have it a lot better than men. Here’s why. Women live longer than men. Known fact. We enjoy more sunrises & sunsets, and more time with our kids & grandkids. But yes, we miss you men when you’re gone. Still. Beatcha!
