A HUGE VICTORY THIS MORNING
Even though I've been off of caffeine for about four months now, never really loved it, and only drank a small amount, I've gone through constant obsessing over it for the past two weeks. That was when I threw the coffeemaker and remainder of t... Read more
I Remember All The Time

No Cookouts For Me
Living year-round in a city with eternal sunshine, cookouts are the norm whenever the spirit moves me. But being pretty burned out (pun intended) on them, I decided that I'll do this holiday weekend w/o the grill. I know, almost unheard of! K... Read more
