The first thing we thought about when planning THE TRIP was finding a wheelchair-accessible place to stay on Long Island. I love my Mom, but having three extra people in her house would not be a clever thing to do. We thought about renting a room in a house, but couldn't find a place accessible … Continue reading When The Accessible Hotel Room Is Inaccessible

These days, our dates are weekend trips to the movies after having coffee … Continue reading I Don’t Sleep With My Colleagues
