Be a Part of the Phil Sweeney Memorial Softball Tournament

For those unfamiliar, Phil, who passed away at just 63-years old became suddenly ill while playing the game he loved. He had played softball the majority of his life, just like me. This weekend, the tournament I'm so excited for is played in his honor.

I'll start this by saying that I am a woman with a career and a busy schedule and bills just like so many.

I'm definitely not judging anyone that decides to take the time to go and enjoy the facials and mud baths of the world. I've heard nothing but amazing things, I guess they're just not for me (or maybe I can't say that fully until I've tried all the things.)

Lost Diamond Found by TSA Officers at Albany International Airport

The feelings you have going through the TSA check points on your travels are mutual to your fellow travelers. Take the shoes off, sweatshirt/jacket, take the lap top out, let them know about the medication you have (yes, I promise that's just my inhaler), take off all of your jewelry and hope that it all makes it to the other end of the conveyor belt.
