Editorial: Good bye, Andrea
The first thing Andrea Langworthy ever wrote to this newspaper was a complaint. A column we’d ran had less than glowing things to say about a particular car salesman, and Andrea, the first female car salesperson in the state back in 1976, stood up for the man. A while...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Moving: a younger woman's game
Boxes and bags and bins, oh my! My room in the transitional care facility looks like a discount store at clearance time. If you’ve read my columns recently, you know my husband and I are moving. Downsizing to a one-bedroom, one-bath independent senior living building. Part...

Andrea Langworthy's column: A weekend not worth repeating
Saturday morning started out like most. A leisurely breakfast for my hubby, medications and feeding tube for me. I read the paper while he took a shower and then, we traded places. I brushed my teeth and washed my face while he got dressed. Later that day we were supposed to...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Scary, scary night
Early last Saturday morning, as I got back in bed, my husband blurted out that he didn’t think the apartment we’re moving to has air conditioning. “Why would you tell me this at two-thirty in the morning?” I asked. “Couldn’t it wait until eight or nine? When I get...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Time to let go
Even though my husband and I gave up on moving to assisted living, every time I looked around our house, all I saw was stuff and space. We spent over three months last year at a transitional care facility living in an area that was about four hundred square feet. What the heck do...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Wedding preparations
My niece was married in Florida last Saturday. She’s my goddaughter, too, so I felt doubly bad I couldn’t go. Airplanes, hotels, all the “stuff” connected with traveling isn’t fun anymore. Add a wheelchair, feeding tube and its paraphernalia and it’s downright impossible....

Andrea Langworthy's column: Fifty years and counting
Fifty years ago this spring, I donned a white floor-length organza dress, picked up my bouquet of red roses and joined my classmates in a procession across the grounds of our high school. In the audience, sitting on folding chairs, were my parents, siblings, boyfriend and two grade...

Andrea Langworthy's column: The eye of the beholder
My husband and I are on two different wave lengths when it comes to stuff. He likes to keep it and I just want to get rid of it. I’m not talking about first edition books or a pristine baseball card from Mickey Mantle’s rookie year. There’s nothing of value in our house but...

Andrea Langworthy's column: A fish story
My sister called me last Sunday morning. She wanted to make sure I saw that day’s StarTribune article about our former grade school, St. Albert the Great, and the Friday night fish fry they have during Lent. “It’s in the Variety section,” she said. “I might have missed...

Andrea Langworthy's column: About face
Last month, when I wrote about going through storage tubs in the basement, ones that hadn’t been looked at since we moved here 14 years ago, I forgot to mention something important. Why we did it. We’d had a rough couple of weeks after leaving the transitional care facility....

Andrea Langworthy's column: Z-z-z-z-z-z-z
My last visit to a doctor, a lung specialist, has me flummoxed. The outcome had nothing to do with the reason I was referred to him. I’d like a second opinion. What do you make of this? A cough I’ve had for months recently got so bad I was hacking all night long. My regular...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Chicken's number one fan
My husband is fixing dinner as I write. Chicken, baked potato, frozen mixed vegetables. A favorite meal of his. His idea of dinner is pretty simple: chicken, chicken and more chicken. Out of the 100-plus days we spent in a transitional care center recently, chicken was on the...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Miserably happy or happily miserable
When I read about comedian Kevin Pollack’s documentary, “Misery Loves Comedy,” I couldn’t help but think of Monday and Tuesday of last week, when nothing went right for my husband and me. Monday started out on a good note. It was the day we came home from the transitional...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Going places
It’s Saturday afternoon. Usually, I write this column on Monday, the day it’s due, but this coming Monday, I’ll be leaving the transitional care facility where I’ve resided since the first week of October. One hundred and one days. That’s as long as some of our Minnesota...

Andrea Langworthy's column: A fashion foible
Award shows are big events in my home and are always kicked off with two hours of red carpet coverage. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it for years to come: Even though I still watch the televised red carpet shows that are broadcast as celebrities arrive for the ceremony,...
