Hello?

I just downed 3 nice size glasses of Pinot Grigio and a fun size pack of peanut m&m’s (stolen from Miss A’s Halloween stash…it’s ok, she doesn’t like the ones with peanuts).Β  I am feeling better: relaxed, and attempting to not feel guilty that instead of hitting the treadmill to pound out a few miles…

It’s Too Late to Change, My Love

Did you ever date someone until finally one day you just got so fed up with a particular quirk/problem/ISSUE that you decide to throw in the towel and announce you want to break up? And immediately following that announcement your no-longer-significant-other decides to suddenly “change” and start treating you better, cleaning up their life, and…

Finding Myself A Brand New Lover

Did anyone immediately think of THIS when hearing that post title? Excuse me for a minute while I recall my days of rollerskating and boy ogling. And giggling…lots of giggling. In stonewashed jeans.

Do I dare use Nair?

I have always thought of myself as smarter than the average bear  human…but I never claimed ownership to a healthy serving of common sense. I have a habit of acting before I think, looking before I leap, if you will. Such was the case yesterday, when I was in a hurry to shower and change…

Mail My Check/Deposit My Mail

Yep, that’s what I almost did today. Wednesdays kinda suck right now, as I juggle three jobs and a three year old – so, between job #1 and #2 I was trying to run a few errands, and I guess my mental check-list tripped out – I barely caught myself before jamming my checks and…

Oh, the irony!

Ha-Ha, Ok, so I realize the “I’m Not Fat!” announcement was posted on April Fool’s Day, and yes, the timing could be considered a cruel joke I played upon myself. But no, it’s just a pathetic coincidence, not the first in my life, and assuredly not the last.
