    I wasn't able to get my Pumpkin Spice Coffee from Dunkin yesterday because it started pouring the second we stepped out of church and it felt like too much trouble. To clarify - I only go there once a week (okay, sometimes twice), but my addiction is at three times a day proportions, so the restrain... Read more

  • Happy Sunday

    Yesterday was date day with Mr. C. We hit the jackpot at the Farmers Market. We got beets, radishes, corn, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, acorn squash, and onions for less than $12. I also beat him pretty severely at Boggle. Our dates sound boring, but we love those moments when we can intentionally ... Read more

Doctor told me I was a diabetic and my A1C1 was over 9. To be honest I knew nothing of diabetes, I was determined at that point to lose weight. S... Read more
