The Pros and Cons of a New Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Spin-off

It was just leaked/announced that Marvel is developing a spin-off show from its popular hit “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” This is exciting news for me, because I love that show and all things Marvel.

50 Things Only 10-sies Kids Can Understand

Signs that you were raised in the greatest generation, with a childhood from 2010-2019!

Letting Go: Further Confessions of a Former Collector

As many of you will know from a previous post, I am in the process of cleaning out my life.  I am trying to get over my attachment to stuff, and as I have recently learned, it is not so much a decision as it is a slow, painful journey. As part of my rehabilitation, […]

A Well Rounded Child

Sometimes I worry that my children are going to be too much like me.  I mean, of course they are going to be somewhat like me, but really what I hope is that they can take all the best parts of me, plus the best parts of everyone else on the planet, and become some […]
