Dating Tips

According to statistics most caregivers are married and have children. Tracey and I represent the Sandwich Generation of caregivers who are children taking care of their own children, and caregivers to their parents. Tracey and I are single without children, so that has led us to have a new added dynamic of trying to date while being caregivers.

It's not easy. But, we both have found this experience has led us to really finally understand that it's about loving ourselves to know that we deserve a wonderful man in our lives. So, please follow our journey. We've kissed a lot of frogs. So, there are lots of laughs, some tears, and lot of hope and openness to love ;-)

Secret Weapons Come in All Forms

Secret Weapons
One of My Favorite Secret Weapons!


One of my mottos is to find the funny in every situation. It’s not always easy. So, at times I find that I have to dig into my “arsenal of secret weapons” to navigate the caregiving waters :). Today, I’m going to share one of my favorites with you, Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Lavender Vanilla Body Wash and Lotion. I know that probably sounds crazy. But, when you’re a caregiver, you realize the most unconventional items can bring the greatest “peace” :). Today, I got a chance to remember that.

Love Is Always In Style

Where there is love, there is life.

I’ve been thinking all week about love. There are so many ways that love is expressed. Love is not conventional. You can’t box love in. Love moves in ways that we don’t always understand. Love is patient, blind, and at times completely deaf to the ways of the world :). Remember God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, so that we could have life more abundantly. That’s love on fire for real!

Budweiser & Bull Shit : Sorry, I got to call it like I see it :)

Budwiser & Bull Shit

This picture says it all right now! I’m going to take a little departure from our regularly scheduled program to talk about dating :). In particular, my journey on this road to love. I took a break from dating after my Dad passed to get myself together, and focus on my family. But, recently I decided to jump back in. I finally feel ready to open myself up to love, and I’m really enjoying this feeling. I just am not enjoying some of the dates and/or people, I’m meeting along the way.

Sometimes you have to find the funny in things, and other times it just jumps out and grabs you. This is one of those time when funny just grabbed me :).

Last Thursday, I had the opportunity to participate in the “Walk for Wishes” to support the Make A Wish foundation. It was so much fun. I really enjoyed having the opportunity to support a great cause, with my team from work. So, that means I didn’t come home after work :). FREE NIGHT !!!!!!
