    Seriously?! Where Is Mom??

    Whine alert. Death is a racket. It’s expensive. It’s heart wrenching. It’s stressful and it sucks ass. My Mom has been gone 3 weeks today. I was so impressed with our Hospice experience through Silverado. The folks there were 100% on their toes. Customer service was amazing. THOUGHTFUL and continual. I never felt alone. On the other hand, I am a million times unimpressed with The Trident Society. They are everything that Silverado is not. Several years ago The Husband and I were approached about cremation services. The Trident Society sent out a representative that made us feel this was the GOLD STANDARD!! The best company to use. We signed up. We…

  • Scruffy Cat Still Lives!!

    This is a post that first published in July 14, 2015. This has to be one of my all time, TOP 10, BEST items I have reviewed. So, I thought it should be printed again.

Last week was a rough week!! Whatever flu…

  • 4 Proven Ways to Take the Stress out of Moving!

    In every language and in all parts of the world from all times, people say, have said, and will continue to say: Moving is stressful. There is simply no such thing as a stress-free move. Even the simplest and shortest distance move has psychological implications. It can be somewhat stressful just moving your furniture around the home you already have. Removing it from that space and putting it into another is going to leave a mark. It is not just the obvious difficulties of a move, such as the expense. And to be sure, moving is almost always more expensive than you expect it to be. There is also the…

Came back home. Maybe tomorrow. 25 passwords….. some were very unique!! I am…
