Last week my husband left for a nine day business trip in China. However you want to pronounce it, all I know is this: It’s the longest — in both miles and minutes — we’ve been apart in about 27 years. In our defense, we’re not big travelers. Or live exciting lives. But really, when my husband […]

According to my iCloud calendar and about 63 friends on Facebook — not to mention Facebook itself (thank you, Zuck) — today is my birthday. Again. Seriously you guys,  I swear it was just my birthday like last week, which may or may not have to do with the fact that I seem to find […]

If you read the blog it’s no secret that for the past few years I’ve been in a major battle with aging, and it’s been ugly. Not so much the battle (because I’m a gracious loser), but the sags, bags, and wrinkles that make me literally gasp each morning when I see myself in the […]

For the past four years I’ve reposted this story on 9/11. Why? Because we all have our stories from that horrific day, and try as we might, we can’t make them change. 15 years ago at this time I was trying desperately to get another hour of sleep. My 4 month old had had a fussy […]

Want to know the last time I slept like a baby? As of a few weeks ago, almost every night for the past year and a half. Before you congratulate me, I don’t mean that in a good way. Babies don’t sleep. At least mine didn’t. I don’t know what your experiences were, but mine were […]

*Not to be confused with Diary of a colonoscopy from earlier this year in which I was also oversharing. Hey, you all know I didn’t start a blog to show you how I do my hair. Disclaimer: If you are a dude, you probably don’t want to read this. It’s all about lady parts … […]

I’ve always envied people who have personal trainers. Not because of the actual personal trainer. I mean, who wants to have someone around whose sole purpose is to make you exercise on a regular basis, not to mention knowing when you cheated or lied about it? *shudder* No, I’ve envied them because they’re usually fantastically fit, […]
