I have been lost, busy, stressed, and a bit out of control. I've gained some weight since the new year, weight that I can ill afford to see again. It's no mystery to put it in black and white- i see it in the mirror, I feel it when I go to pu... Read more

I'm coming off a week where I had something going on every single night. It was a lot to handle. I was going to say manage, and I'm not sure that's the right word. I did say no alcohol for me at any of these events- I don't drink much and I ... Read more

Wow, the holidays sure can turn out the family crazies. I have to say, hubby's family is usually pretty mellow about most things. They get along WAY better than my family, so I just assume that everything is always ok. Right now there is a... Read more

What a whirlwind. I was in Paris most of last week, then came home via a stop in London. It was a good week, surrounded by good people and great art. Lots of dining out, lots of cocktail hours, lots of social activities. I set rules around ... Read more

I am absolutely fried. I am completely tired and stressed and just freaked out. This is normally a busy time of year. I try to get a lot of work done heading into November because I work with a lot of municipalities that are a bit more rural w... Read more
The part of weight loss I HATE
Monday, October 17, 2016      18 comments

There are downsides to weight loss. The one i hate the most is baggy/saggy pants. As much as I like getting smaller, I hate having a baggy crotch in jeans walking around, it's unflattering, uncomfortable, and too slouchy and yucky for me.... Read more

Our film festival is over. In 15 days I saw 40 films from around the world. I actually had some more on my schedule but along the way needed to pull the plug on occasion to deal with a few crises for work, host a dinner for 20 at our house in ... Read more

Yes, I meant to use capital letters for my entry name. I had such a great weekend. I got the hubby moving on Saturday morning, had a small duffle bag and cooler packed, and we hit the road to get to the marina. The wind was favorable and... Read more
Busy times, but doing well
Friday, September 16, 2016      8 comments

I have been frantically busy for the last couple of weeks. It's been insane. I've been tired, cranky, and overall probably not much fun to live with. I've been overloaded, and have also put extra things on top myself which hasn't been a good ... Read more

It's been a really crazy stretch, and I'm just coming up for a bit of air before I head into another crazy stretch. A few things were thrown at me last week that were unexpected and rather unpleasant. I'm on a board that is very politically ch... Read more

I am back in town after a very very very long long weekend. We were out in DC for a family wedding- the hubby's nephew got married on Saturday. The hubby's family is often very difficult for me. They are HUGE and I'm just a more quiet person ... Read more

There have been some discussions amongst the ladies that I know about programs- this program, that program, every which program. What about nutrients, calories, blood types, points, etc. I came to this site from another one, having been ... Read more
