#76: A Different Kind of Class Reunion

#76: A Different Kind of Class Reunion

It surprises new friends of mine to learn that I attended a large state university. And rightly so; I have more of a bookish personality than one suited to a party school where football is king. Those who know me well assume the reality show of my collegiate life would bear a closer resemblance to […]

#73: Room at the Table

While some memories from high school have faded with time (thank goodness), there is one that is for me, regretfully, crystal clear. I’m standing in a doorway, lunch tray clutched in an iron grip, surveying a loud and crowded room. I’m scanning the tables for what seems like hours, though in reality mere seconds have […]

#72: On Borrowing Kids

Several years ago, someone at church asked me if I babysat, and I quickly answered “No!” explaining that after being with kids all week at work, combined with working with them at church, I simply needed a break on Friday and Saturday nights.

So you can imagine […]

#21: Vanishing Act

We made the decision very early on not to disappear the way that some newly-married couples do. So two days after Randy and I returned from our honeymoon, we invited some friends and siblings over to help us finish off the leftover wedding cake. Many of my best married girlfriends were in the throes of […]

#15: The Mysterious Case of the Butter

We all have a little Sherlock Holmes in us, don’t you think? The part of us that can’t stand to leave a good mystery be? The inner Nancy Drew that senses a puzzle and sniffs out clues till it is solved. A part time investigator that attempts to solve cases, like… Why Does My Neighbor […]
