Hasta, Sayonara, Ciao, Later…

First things first, though. Here is the infamous Taylor’s First Day on the Job picture: Now on to the business at hand. I will not be around for the next week. Tomorrow I’m leaving on a jet plane. Don’t know when I’ll be back again. Oh wait. Yes I do. I’ll be back next Tuesday.…

Spring Rains…

Today promises to be a gorgeous day here in the Philly area. It’s only 8:00 and already it’s in the low 50’s, beautiful and sunny. The high is supposed to get to 70. Since I began with these stupid hot flashes 70 is about as warm as I like it. I love the sights, smells…

Just a Quickie

For those of you who prefer a quickie as opposed to a longie (Katybug) – I’M TALKING ABOUT POSTS, PEOPLE! Just a few things. 1. I called my endocrinologist Friday to see what the results of my thyroid biopsy was. She felt horrible because they hadn’t come in yet. She called the hospital but never…
