Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) catches me by surprise every year. It shouldn’t. Feeling down in the darker months is as much a part of the rhythm of seasons as the leaves changing in the fall and the first daffodil...
Going gray is something that many of us will face. When will it happen? And what will we do about it when it does? Welcome to The Gray Hair Debate. A friend once said to me, with a nod...
I know what you’re thinking and no, this is not a post about Spider-Man’s Thanksgiving (although I did debate spinning a tale about just that - see what I did there?). This is about Thanksgiving, one of my favorite holidays,...
I thought I liked pumpkin. I mean, pumpkin pie, right? That was the extent of my experience with this type of squash. To be fair, if someone had told me I was eating squash pie as a 7-year-old, I...
I heard about this book over and over again. It was flying off the shelves. My beloved Book of the Month club could barely keep it in stock. All the bookstagrammers, reviewers, and my fellow suspense enthusiasts were raving...
Another runner dodged past me. I watched as her ponytail swung back and forth, the space increasing between us with each step. I urged my feet and legs forward, but my running stride turned into a limping walk.  “C’mon Lindsay,...
I had heard amazing things about A Burning by Megha Majumdar, and I purposely held off on reading it for a book club pick. Was it worth the wait? Resoundingly, yes. https://www.amazon.com/Burning-novel-Megha-Majumdar/dp/0593081250?dchild=1&keywords=a+burning&qid=1631409214&sr=8-1&linkCode=li1&tag=militarymomco-20&linkId=0802b7d10d1728b8bc06be875403b097&language=en_US&ref_=as_li_ss_il%20target=_blankimg%20border=0%20src=//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&ASIN=0593081250&Format=_SL110_&ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=militarymomco-20&language=en_US%20/aimg%20src=https://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=militarymomco-20&language=en_US&l=li1&o=1&a=0593081250%20width=1%20height=1%20border=0%20alt=%20style=border:none%20!important;%20margin:0px%20!important;   A Burning takes place in Kolkata, India and involves three...
We were busy this summer. Baseball, swimming, soccer clinics, science camp, vacation bible school, camping...it flew by. Now that fall and school are starting, we will not be slowing down. Our schedule changes week by week, but one thing is for...
I poured the hot water into my paper cup, plopped in a tea bag, and headed to my seat. “Hi, Courtney. So glad you were able to join us,” one of the coordinators cheerfully greeted me as I joined...
