It is rare for me to skip my workouts, but this week I have to miss them until Sunday. We sold very well at the last show, which is a double edged sword...its fantastic to have great sales, but then I have to make more inventory. This week's sh... Read more

My Latest Obsession

Sunday, April 22, 2012      1 comments

About a month ago we set up at an artist show at St. Phillip's Plaza, here in Tucson. The show was a good one for a lot of reasons; beautiful court yard, good live music, brisk sales and fantastic weather. On day two of the show I ducked into on... Read more

Dr. Related Stress

Tuesday, February 14, 2012      0 comments

One of the reasons I hate going to the Dr. is because of my weight. Yep, every time I go, I get the same lecture and she acts as if I want to be fat. I was trying to get the lap band or the staple, but I was told other than being morbidly obese,... Read more
