Last night, I weighed in at my weekly Weight ... Read more
SNOW ON THE FORECAST
Since waking this morning, I've heard nothing but news of an impending blizzard. Word is that it's to arrive sometime by morning tomorrow, and the prediction is for 12-15 inches. I've got myself a Honda Element SUV, so I'm not worried. I'm a ... Read more

Sheesh. It'... Read more

BENEFITS LOST/GAINED/DELETED & REVISITED
Earlier today, I hopped online, crafted my weekly Sunday blog, and within 30 minutes of posting, I deleted it.
That particular post talked about benefits lost and benefits gained. Specifically, I spoke about the pressures of this last week... Read more
HAPPY MUTHAH'S DAY
Yesterday, the husband and I trekked into the next county to visit with old friends, folks we'd not seen in eons. Happily, they brought their nearly 7-year old son, who is a doll. Last time I saw the little guy was before he entered kindergart... Read more
