DREAMS DON’T HAVE AN EXPIRATION…

DREAMS DON’’T HAVE AN EXPIRATION! It is easy to dream, living in Paris.  Yes, I get scared. It’s okay to be scared.. That means I am alive- in fact, we’re all scared at first as we grow older. Have you ever……?  …….    Not yet……!!!! Chapter 11 is the chapter that changes my life. ThisContinue reading “DREAMS DON’T HAVE AN EXPIRATION…”

GOODBYE, SEPTEMBER 2021. I LOVE YOU.

This is on my mind – LOTS. It is a glorious September day in Paris! I woke up!! After being sick all week AND tested, I am happy to report that I passed the test. I had taken two steps forward. This week I took four steps back. People were bowling – at least fourContinue reading “GOODBYE, SEPTEMBER 2021. I LOVE YOU.”

SHIFTS AND CHANGES – CHAPTER 10

Well, this was the week from Hell and back.  I am reeling from shock about “better days ahead” and trying to understand what just happened. In addition, I have had a cold (not Covid) all week.  On antibiotics. With Laryngitis. I don’t know where to start.  This may be a two-parter because I have soContinue reading “SHIFTS AND CHANGES – CHAPTER 10”

HELLOOOO, SEPTEMBER!

Well, here we are in Chapter Ten, and I, for one, need something that feels normal for a change of pace. Football. It is September and that is when I long for football. Games. Brisk weather. Chaos is OK for about five minutes. Then I need something that calms me down. Like changing leaves andContinue reading “HELLOOOO, SEPTEMBER!”

CHAPTER TEN – “THE NEW NORMAL”

Grab a coffee. We are charging ahead, DESPITE all systems saying, “BREAKING NEWS!!!!” We are moving into Janet’s Chapter TEN.

Are you talking aboutContinue reading “CHAPTER TEN – “THE NEW NORMAL””

WORKING TITLE – MUSINGS IN PARIS

Today is the 16th anniversary of my marriage to Steve Orlandella.  We booked a weekend at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.  Everything about that weekend was fun.  But I am not prepared to write about that today.  He died from heart failure on August 31, 2016, after having been treated in the hospital forContinue reading “WORKING TITLE – MUSINGS IN PARIS”

ON VACATION IN PARIS, AUGUST 2021!

HELLO, AUGUST,2021!!   I thought you would never get here.  Frankly, I love September.  But August is full of surprises for me.   I “remember” 2 wedding anniversaries, 5 birthdays of important people in my FORMER life, and one VIP death.  So, I am up and then I am down.  Let’s share and walk down memory lane,Continue reading “ON VACATION IN PARIS, AUGUST 2021!”

SOME THOUGHTS FOR AUGUST 2021

Those of you who know me or have followed me on Jayspeak know that I have lived a life of relative abundance. And “things” mattered, and I had a lot of “stuff”. I had saved everything in case I MIGHT NEED IT OR WANT IT SOMEDAY. I made sure that I provided for my childrenContinue reading “SOME THOUGHTS FOR AUGUST 2021”

PARIS UPDATE

This has been a wonderful week of catchup for me with lots of ups and downs.  No comment. And now I am asking you to sit in the dark with me in case we are either one having difficulty seeing the bright side. Something or other triggers that recurring doom-and-gloom and then I have toContinue reading “PARIS UPDATE”
