Let Them (Not) Eat Cake
We take people in at Christmas, my family; we always have. A small family of mostly women, we don't have many children around to watch, in fact at 29 I'm usually the youngest at the table. So we take people in - friends and neighbours. Over the years our table has seen food, jokes, and customs from Baltic, Celtic, and American friends of all ages, and usually, it goes well.

Aquatic Mammals Of The World And Family Time
I was so excited to hear the good music and eat some of the amazing latin food my family had prepared. All I could do on the way to the airport was dream about the fun times I was about to partake in.
Finally Coming Home
Monday, I hated that day. Especially, a snowy, freezing, miserable December day in Michigan. As I made my way to our break room, I heard the usual. “Morning LT, Morning Lieutenant Flynn, nice day, isn’t it LT?” My people loved to aggravate me. All of them knew until I had my first cup of coffee, I hated to talk. I went into our breakroom, grabbed a coffee mug, and poured a cup of the Elixir of the Gods. Just as I took my first sip, Detective Ellen Johnson interrupted me.
Grandma and Me
When I opened my eyes for the first time, you were by my side, you loved me more than anything in this life. I grew up a little bit and we shared the same room together. You told me interesting stories. We had sheep, chickens and a donkey. We used to take care of them together.
Inheriting My Family- Part 1
Last year, I lost my dad to a sudden heart attack and to be honest, it took quite a bit of time to get myself back together. At the time of my dad’s death, I was still in my final year of university and had spent most of 2020–2021 cooped up at home due to Covid restrictions.

What Does Being A Grandparent Mean To You?
I never expected that I'd be a Grandmother. I thought about it, but I never expected the day that I'd become one. I'm in my 40's, and I am surrounded by a myth that grandparents are all elderly.
Fuck - our parents are getting older!
When I watched the final season of "Grace and Frankie" the other day, it struck me again: we're all going to die. The big spoiler of life. Before we die, we'll get even older. And before we get older, so will our parents. This is very creepy. Just as shocking and just as obvious as the realization that Mom and Dad must have had sex. You can smile away that over time, dementia and heart attack not really.
