    Wet Socks

    What’s worse than wearing wet socks? Okay – wet, dirty socks. Or wet, dirty socks with holes. Ooh, ooh, the worst – cold, wet, dirty socks with holes.

    September Sans Spending

    The month of August has been a financially painful time for me. I blame this on the fact that my only child has just begun her first year at college. Lots (and I mean a whole lot) of spending happened in preparation for this auspicious endeavor.

    “Breaking bread”, or eating a meal with others, is a deeply personal way to foster a sense of belonging. Food is a social glue; it brings us together for conversation, a time to catch up, a chance to connect with loved ones, and it fills our bellies as well.
