Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Apparently, the winter Olympics seem to give me ideas for blog posts. Here’s one I wrote last time about our thoughts on the skier who came in dead last. Last week, I was watching figure skating.

Here’s a description: A powerful drama of domestic life following two memorable women who shared a house eighty […]

Struggling with Anxiety

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

Several years ago, I shared a story about a family that I used to babysit for. The parents went away for the weekend and were killed in a motorcycle accident. Here is that post in case you missed it. When James was a baby, I hated to go anywhere without him. I would be afraid […]
