Just what the world needs, another blogger, right?
But don’t be too quick to close your browser. Let’s get to know each other first.
I’m Terri S. Vanech, a Connecticut wife and mother trying to keep my sense of humor while navigating life’s crazy twists and turns.
A refugee from the newsroom, I’m crafting a second career as a communications specialist and teaching Jazzercise in my spare time.
I’m also an adoptee searching for my birth mother, a lifelong band geek who recently returned to playing the clarinet and a little nutty middle-aged woman who is probably a lot like you or someone you know.
Pushing on a Rope was one of my late father-in-law’s expressions, and a phrase I come back to time and again lately. In just about every area of my life, I seem to be Pushing a Rope.
You, too? Let’s share the wealth, then.
This blog is my effort to offer support in life’s journey. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in recent years, it’s that we’re all in this together. So using my love for the written word, I hope to make you laugh (maybe cry) and give you something to think about a few times a week.
I hope you’ll communicate with me, that we’ll get to know each other and learn from each other.
Recurring characters on these pages may include my husband, Basil; and our delightful 16-year-old daughter, Catherine; as well as assorted family and friends.
