A bad day for poor Rosie.

Dear Amy: I have had a horrific pandemic year: Pandemic, breast cancer diagnosis, a child with depression, suicide ideation and a long stay in a psychiatric facility for them — and our business almost failed. All of these have turned out okay, but we are still reeling. My sister tends to be extremely self-centered. SheContinue reading “A bad day for poor Rosie.”

My sense of humor unleashed.

DEAR MISS MANNERS: There’s a couple we socialize with: Henry and Jane. Over the past two years, Henry has developed memory issues, which they acknowledge as having been confirmed by a doctor. They often joke about it. Sometimes, when I mention something Henry has told me about, like a restaurant or show they’ve been to,Continue reading “My sense of humor unleashed.”

Because I’m a gonna rock that tutu!

Well, I’ve got a scheduling conflict. As you all know, I’ve been struggling mightily to lose fifty or so pounds that I’ve been carrying for the past ten years.

Why do we fall for shallow men?!

DEAR ABBY: For a long time, I have been in love with a man who is 15 years younger than I am. We had a relationship for about a year, which ended six years ago. Since then, we have remained friends and occasionally hooked up a few times. The short relationship we had was closeContinue reading “Why do we fall for shallow men?!”

A strange surprise ending.

Huh. I awoke at 8:40 AM, as did my dad, and it was earlier than normal for both of us. He told me he was going to take my mom to my sister’s house to dogsit during my sister’s honeymoon. I offered to take her since I was up too. My dad liked that idea,Continue reading “A strange surprise ending.”
