The construction site worker. He held out the stop sign so abruptly that the driver of the BMW was forced to slam on his brakes. Two car lengths behind, I hit the brakes as fast as I could but I knew. I couldn’t stop. We saw it coming. “I can’t stop.” The sentence fell from my mouth and settled in my…

Siah. Pronounced Sigh-Ya.

This is the New Kitten. Her name is Siah and she will be joining me and Abby (the other cat) on Saturday morning. The root of her name means “serenity” in Finnish. Not that I had any clue as to that tidbit when I thought I made up the name … it’s kind of like the Top Five game. I was convinced I…

My other blog has been dismantled, so I’m republishing my last entry Here, on New Blog. I apologize for the repeat performance. New, fresh material coming soon. Promise. Aside from the normal perimeters of a friendship, like the endless phone calls about a breakup, potential new job opportunity, a new relationship or the stupid thing I said in front of…

My name is Kerri. I could go through the hassle of establishing a non de plume, but I wasn’t thinking when I set this up and I signed in with my real name. Note to Potential Stalkers: Please don’t. The purpose of this is to make contact with other diabetics. It’s one of those diseases (or maybe they’re all this…
