The family that lies together, stays sane together!

The family that lies together, stays sane together!

FamilyI’m often quite oblivious to what’s going on around me. Perhaps it’s because I spend so much time in my own imagination. So it should come as no surprise that when my family lies to me — in the name of protecting my sensitive sensibilities — I’m totally oblivious to their deceit.

My Best Friends

My Best Friends

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I love books. They don’t talk back. There’s a never ending supply in the bookstore, online, or at the library. And if I’m lonely, they’re always there to keep me company.

After Florence Fois’s March Bookfest, I decided to share a few of my recent and upcoming reads. To check out my list, pop on over to the Women Unplugged site where I’m blogging today.

Why Is My Face Red?

Why Is My Face Red?

We all suffer from it, that infliction known as embarrassment. At the moment it occurs, our face turns red and our body flushes with a heat that can only be compared to a hot flash.

Each time I get caught in an embarrassing situation, I believe I’m the only one this has ever happened to, and yet common sense tells me that’s not true. So I did a pole of a few of my blogger friends and they were more than happy to share their most embarrassing moments with me.

Come join me over at the Women Unplugged blog where I’m sharing some wonderful links and telling you about my most embarrassing moment.

A World Without … Books?

A World Without … Books?

Sometimes I think about how awful it would be to live in a world without books. Usually it’s a result of watching TV and seeing old footage of people burning books.

But then I reach for my Kindle, admire the towering digital-to-be-read pile that awaits me there, and forget about my concerns. After all, even if every print book on the planet disappeared, we’d still have our digital copies to read and pass on to future generations. Right?

Or would we? To read the rest of this post, join me at the Women Unplugged blog.

Have a happy Easter, everyone!

The Gift of Sight

The Gift of Sight

Join me at the Women Unplugged blog where I’m talking about The Gift of Sight.

My mother has macular degeneration, a medical condition which results in the loss of vision at the center of the eye. Eventually it spreads outward and causes blindness. This condition makes it difficult or impossible for her to recognize faces and read the newspaper. Although she still has enough peripheral vision to allow her to perform the daily activities in her life, there are many other limitations.
