Hello there! A little about me. A long-time Las Vegas native, I spend my days teaching computer technology to hormonal middle schoolers. I live with my husband of 20+ years and have a teenage daughter, grown son, and child of the furry persuasion.

I'm a huge fan of "The Walking Dead" and "Game of Thrones", as well as movies with stupid humor. "Zoolander", "Austin Powers", and "Monty Python" are some of my faves. And if you asked me where the best place in the world is, it would have to be Disneyland. I mean, it *is* the happiest place on Earth.

I love to write about relationships, family as well as romantic, and my aim is to explore life's challenges with honesty and humor. Hearing from readers is such a treat, so please feel free to visit

Midlife Vision Problems - Part Deux

In this follow-up to my July video in which weird things were happening to my vision, I share what was causing my problem, as well as a long searched for solution to having to wear two pairs of glasses at the same time while on the computer. (And no, it wasn't bifocals or progressives.)
