The Love of a Brother

A friend of mine recently returned from Florida, and it sparked a memory.  It’s one of those classic memories guaranteed to make me laugh. In 2006, I took the kids to Disney World in Florida. We stayed at Disney’s All Star Musical Resort complete with restaurants/cafeterias and swimming pools.  We of course visited all the… Continue reading The Love of a Brother

Avoiding Eye Contact

As a general rule I usually smile at people I don't know, compliment someone if it seems appropriate, talk to another Shopper, or to the Wait Staff, Security Guards, whomever.  It drives my children crazy.  Taking a page out of my friend Karen's book...'Now that I know something could embarrass them, I may tend to do it more.'  Remember going with Morgan to… Continue reading Avoiding Eye Contact
