My mommy told me when I was a little girl that I could be President of the United States if I wanted it bad enough, but I found out along the way that that wasn’t true. I was born into pre-Title XI and had to fight for my right to... more

June 7…Update on the Health Tests

By: Christine Smith | 0 Comments | | Category: Blog, Health, Random Thoughts | Tags : , , , , ,

Update for those who are following the health situation: Yesterday’s vaccine seemed to go over without very little issue. I had some tenderness at the sight of the shot, which was to be expected. The other one she warned me about was flu-like symptoms, meaning low-grade fever and maybe some... more

June 6…The Search for Better Health Begins!

By: Christine Smith | 0 Comments | | Category: Blog, Health, Random Thoughts

This morning was the first of multiple test results from the allergist. The results were pretty eye-opening Kay Smith. I’ve been told since I was a child that I was allergic to all these outdoor allergens like trees, mold, dust, ragweed (the absolute worst), pollens of so many kinds, grass,... more

Well, I can finally say we’re out of Immigration Hell for a couple of years – Naqeeb FINALLY got notification that he’s been approved for permanent residency! Yes, one year almost to the day, he’s finally legal. What a relief! This last two years has been, as you can imagine,... more

Vocal Pause

I admit, I haven’t been here on the blog for a bit. I’ve been bogged down lately with work, illness, the holidays…I don’t know, the usual. I also wonder if there’s anyone out there, reading this thing, or if I’m just talking to myself. LOL. So I took a little... more

1. It took me 15 minutes to drive into work today. 8 miles, what normally takes me between 40-90 minutes on a normal day. I wish every commute was this fast. 2. There are about 25 people in the building today, a place where normally 23,000 people work. It’s quiet…too... more

You’re probably (still) thinking I’m nuts for delving into the world of making cat food. At first, so was I. I mean, there are tons of products out there, and I’ve had many, many cats over my lifetime, and they’ve all lived happy, healthy, long lives, right? Except that maybe... more

Only One Option? Hmmm…Maybe…Maybe Not.

By: Christine Smith | 0 Comments | | Category: Business, Random Thoughts

I don’t know about you, but when I’m faced with a crossroads, I hate…HATE…being told by someone, “here’s your option…take it or leave it.” If you’ve ever met me (haha), you know I’m not the type of person to take things at face value or to believe that there’s ever... more
