For the past few months I have been making my way around the world eating and drinking and making Merry. My nest is empty for the first time in 22 years and it was time to get out of Dodge. The empty nest thing has been great except now I return... Read more
I lost my MoJo... and the fall out of a stressful June.
Wednesday, June 26, 2013      4 comments

Kaboom. The explosion of June followed by the Fall Out. Unfortunately the Fall Out attached itself to my body. Eight pounds in four weeks. Yeah. I lost my MoJo to say the least. Just when I thought I was in my groove. Things were happening. I w... Read more

Well it happened. I lost weight and things started to heat up in the bedroom. For years I have worn Lanz flannel granny gowns. Sexy? No..but they provided good coverage and were not revealing in the least. I was comfortable in them. But now I ha... Read more

I am doing my inner Snoopy dance because it fits! It fits! It fits! Actually, THEY all fit!. All of those lovely little sundresses in my closet which NEVER get to go out because the weather is usually too crappy in the Pacific Northwest AND bec... Read more
The Sun, the sun, the sun....and WHAT a difference it makes!

I just got back from four fabulous SUNNY days in San Francisco and Napa. It was awesome! First of all, SFO can hold its own against any city in the world. And yes, we dined and drank and walked all over the place. Then I headed to Napa on my own... Read more
The Easter Bunny or the Monty Python Bunny of Caerbannog?
Monday, April 01, 2013      2 comments

The Easter Bunny did me in. More like the Monty Python Killer Bunny of Caerbannog! First he plied me with wine...then cheese...and the chocolate! Before I knew it, I had entered the battle and succumbed to the feast. Foil wrappers littering the... Read more

To send your child, not even your first born, to the opposite coast for college is tough. To send your child who has a potentially life threatening health condition to the opposite coast for college is tougher. To send your child who has a poten... Read more
It is all downhill from here....my first gray hair.
Saturday, March 02, 2013      9 comments

There it is, an almost translucent filament pinched between my finger tips. I am momentarily silent. Shocked. My eyes must be playing tricks on me. It has to be the lighting. Yes, that's it..bad lighting. Gingerly I move into the next room, fing... Read more

I don't know what is eating me but I tried to eat it, and eat it all...and then some. We always have chips and cookies and candy and icecream in the house but I could care less about them. They usually don't tempt me or have appeal.. But today t... Read more

Tuesday, January 08, 2013      9 comments

About a year ago my son went in for his physical. He had just turned 17. They did a routine blood draw. The results were unsettling. His platelet count was well below normal ( meaning his blood was not clotting properly). Since then my son has h... Read more

You hear about it. The inner child. The voice of wisdom. So I set out to listen to her and, Whoa Nelly..that girl was having a tantrum! She was screaming that she was scared...that she doesn't like going to the doctor. So this is what is eating ... Read more
Holidays push my buttons. Looking for the reset button. Life with a narcissistic parent
Sunday, December 30, 2012      5 comments

Holidays will do that. Push your buttons. Family gatherings. Being thrown back into a role you no longer want to assume. Work gatherings. Fine lines and determining acceptable boundaries. Gifts where you wonder,"What the he11?" And try to remin... Read more

Yup. I thought that I had but wished that I hadn't gained weight over the past week. I weigh myself once a week and today happened to be the day. Up 2.8 pounds. Ahh well. Time to get my mojo back.... Read more
Snow flakes make me insanely happy!

I saw snow flakes today and the smile just started to spread across my face until I was grinning from ear to ear. My heart was singing. Oh Snoopy, where for art thou? I am ready to do the dance with you. Linus strike up the piano! Charlie Brown!... Read more
