Held Hostage By Hunger

Held Hostage By Hunger

Does anyone else ever get paralyzed by an occasional snack choice or is that just me? Not always, but from time to time I will get so overwhelmed by the idea of having to decide what to eat when I am hungry that it will take me over an hour to decide what to eat. … Continue reading

Enjoying the Enemy

Enjoying the Enemy

I spent all day yesterday walking around, catching glimpses of my reflection in shiny surfaces and thinking, “Ugh-blech-blurgh.” But then I remembered that my #1 New Year’s Resolution is to enjoy myself no matter what I am doing. And since right now what I am doing is carrying around 15 extra pounds that seems to be … Continue reading

The Holly Housewife Party Plan

The Holly Housewife Party Plan

At my house, the holidays have officially arrived. The tree has been trimmed, the halls have been decked and our annual holiday party has come and gone. Now, I love to throw a party. I love planning the menu and decorating the table. I love envisioning my friends laughing with their heads thrown back as … Continue reading

The Discipline Discussion

The Discipline Discussion

When I think of the word discipline, I think of being punished. I think of nuns and rulers and plaid skirts and chalkboards and detention and sitting on the stairsteps and counting to 100. I am not Catholic, never attended Catholic school and really most of my ideas about nuns and Catholic School come from … Continue reading

The Thanksgiving Burrito

The Thanksgiving Burrito

This year I spent Thanksgiving with 30 of my nearest and dearest in sunny San Diego. A tradition of my parent’s college friends that I, along side all their kids, grew up into. Last week was the 35th Anniversary  (36 depending on who you’re asking) Thanksgiving Celebration. It is a weekend that lasts an entire … Continue reading

The Not-So-Calm Before the Storm

The Not-So-Calm Before the Storm

Well here we are again. The last week before the holidays. In Los Angeles, the weather has finally turned to sweaters and boots which means 65 degrees and sunny. But it’s cold enough that we had to turn on the heat and I’m thinking about putting the down comforter back on the bed. It’s time … Continue reading

Decisions Decisions

Decisions Decisions

Yesterday on a hike with my dog, Ruby, I saw a woman coming toward me. It was Zooey Deschanel, of the hit Fox TV sitcom, “The New Girl.” Well I just so happened to be listening to Zooey Deschanel’s band, She & Him, on my iPod. Within 5 seconds of this realization, I had an … Continue reading

Don’t Call it a Comeback

Don’t Call it a Comeback

Ahhh…hello again world. I’m back. Back from two glorious weeks in Italy. Back from pasta for lunch and pizza for dinner. Back from walking eight hours a day. Back from seeing some of the most beautiful sights in the world. Back home. And I’m glad to be home. I’ve learned that one of the benefits … Continue reading

Skinny in a Bikini

Skinny in a Bikini

Last week’s WW meeting was one of a rare breed. First of all, it was small. There were street closures surrounding the meeting which made parking more of a challenge than usual, and apparently deterred people from attending the meeting. Thus it was small. Small like when you go to classes the day before Thanksgiving … Continue reading

Wait a minute

Wait a minute

It’s been longer than usual since my last post. I suppose I’ve been waiting for inspiration to hit me. And that seems to be the story of my life right now–waiting. Waiting for people to get back to me. Waiting for projects to start. Waiting for vacations to begin. Waiting for my next meal. Waiting … Continue reading
