burbfam-240x238-brandIt was very sudden. My husband decided we should take a trip. When he first mentioned it I came back at him with a list of reasons we shouldn’t go, beginning with “We have two children in university” and ending with, “We have two children in university.” In addition, I’m a planner, one of those people who enjoy the anticipation of a vacation, packing and repacking several times before a trip.  But he was adamant the two of us get away, so a couple of days later we were on a plane to Cuba.  I told my boss if my husband came back without me, to make sure there was an investigation.

burbfam-240x238-brandThis party was a long time coming. I had looked forward to Christmas, but was sick over the holidays.  I looked forward to New Years Eve, but was just getting over a terrible cold. My husband was sick the entire month of February. Like I said, this party was long overdue. Even my friends were in need of some fun, and urged me to have a birthday bash.

 No, it wasn’t a BIG birthday milestone, which was the question of the day. I am two years shy of ‘the big one’, but thought it would be good practice.  There were thirty some people in our small house. The music was blaring, there was good food, great conversation and lots of dancing and drinking going on.

burbfam-240x238-brandI was shocked when it was reported that pop star Rihanna had been physically assaulted by boyfriend and fellow celebrity singer, Chris Brown. I listened to the 911 calls and like everyone, was sickened by the photos of her injuries splashed all over the Internet.

Shock turned to sadness and disappointment, however, when I heard she had reunited with Brown, despite the experts telling her if he hit you once, he’ll hit you again.

weber-logo1I’ve got a problem and you’ve got to help me.  It’s a matter of life and death.

My father died 7 years ago from a heart attack.  That’s the simple explanation.  The truth, however, like most things human, is a little more complex.  The reality is he died from stress, stress brought on by an addiction to politics and economics, mainlined from his dealer, the omnipresent media.

weber-logo1We shut off our engine and the wind filled our sails.  It was a beautiful clear night with a million stars.  Cruise ships, glittering like diamond bracelets, passed us.  Later, we picked up the lights from Great Stirrup Cay, ran inside and made our first Bahamas anchorage . . .”

This is how my Saturday began, reading e-mail from a friend, he and his wife-to spite me-sailing around the world.

Hopping on the Bachelor Bashing Bandwagon… March 5, 2009

burbfam-240x238-brandAll aboard? I too am jumping on the Bachelor Bashing Bandwagon.

 I’ve watched almost every season of The Bachelor. Why, because I’m a hopeless romantic? It’s not enough to have love in my life; I want everyone I know to have love in their life too. I think everyone deserves to experience the butterflies in their stomach as they fall in love, the twinge of excitement in anticipation of seeing that person and that sickening, gut wrenching feeling when they’re apart. It’s all part of being in love and there’s no better feeling. If people can find love on a reality show, I’m all for it.
