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…”

CHAPTER 11

Do you know what I mean by “true colors”?  When someone shows you their “true colors”, what should you do with the new information?  It could be something you have suspected for a long time.  And now you have confirmation?  Withdraw?  Set boundaries?  Confront?  I don’t have answers.  I have tried all three.  With some,Continue reading “CHAPTER 11”

THOUGHTS AND STUFF….

Whew, I have gone through A LOT this year! We ALL have.  While my stamina is impressive, the nonstop juggling of my life in the midst of an ongoing pandemic has left me with little energy left to care for myself! I am using a lot of time to search for encouraging life advice as I navigateContinue reading “THOUGHTS AND STUFF….”

THE SUNDAY FUNNIES – FROM PARIS, WITH LOVE

Do people still have a sense of humor? Both of my sons like to laugh. I sometimes question their sense of humor, but that’s my job. I am their mother. And I seldom believe their political beliefs. But that is true of how I feel about a lot of people. I love all of themContinue reading “THE SUNDAY FUNNIES – FROM PARIS, WITH LOVE”

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”

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. When last we spoke, I was flailing around in Chapter 9, adjusting to my new-found life in Paris. Then BAM, BAM, BAM, BAM. It happened. What happened? Chaos. THE NEW NORMAL! Are you talking aboutContinue reading “CHAPTER TEN – “THE NEW NORMAL””

LATE AUGUST 2021 NO COMMENT COMMENTARY FROM PARIS with love……

Some days are not good days for me. I think it has to do with biorhythms. But, I don’t know. So, I am not going to try to write about depression, or family values, or whatever. I have some good topics when I feel like it, and I have been trying to walk in myContinue reading “LATE AUGUST 2021 NO COMMENT COMMENTARY FROM PARIS with love……”

JANET In Paris! Status Update!

I woke up this morning filled with alarm. The good news: I woke up.. The bad news: alarmed. About what? EVERYTHING. You name it, I was alarmed. Then I remembered (as if I ever forget) my blood pressure. Oops. Got to calm down. How ? Log onto social media. Oops. Maybe that wasn’t a goodContinue reading “JANET In Paris! Status Update!”

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”
