If you’re not up to wrangling a turkey, if you want to avoid doing any dishes AT ALL, or if you simply want to enjoy a quiet meal out on the town, you’ll want to know which restaurants are open on Thanksgiving. My family recently moved to Lynchburg, Virginia, which is a fairly traditional, family-oriented town, so I thought most of the restaurants would be … Continue reading Where to Eat in Lynchburg on Thanksgiving
I remember a point in my life when I believed that everything was a sign. Yes, I believed I shared my soda straw with the universe and saw daily events, large or small, as my personal GPS for life, things like a surprise after-school faculty meeting turned into see? I knew it was a bad day to to go the Y. Maybe it’s because I’ve suffered from … Continue reading Force Quit
A Mother’s Perspective On Saving Time: We’re about to finish our first week of “spring forward,” also known as Daylight Savings Time, better known as The Week Parents Dread Every Spring.

(NOT that I will be spending less time at the gym … Continue reading (warning: this is not a recipe)
