I got bold today. Maybe it's part of the "new" me. Maybe it was just a weak moment. I said go for it. She cut it short in back (with a layer) and tapered it forward. I haven't had my hair this short in years and years. I think I've been hi... Read more

It is nearly impossible to make a long-distance road trip without "some" planning. One has to have a route, perhaps some motel reservations, fuel stops, etc. It's much the same with our journey to "Health & Fitness". We need a plan. For... Read more

I was sitting here tonight with my puppy in my lap when I had one of those NSV moments! She got off my lap and out of habit I brushed my clothes off even though she doesn't shed like our older dog. When I did I noticed something. My stomach w... Read more
