    We had an argument and as so often, I asked the same question over and over, demanded an answer, where there was none. Even happy couples fight once in a while and when it happens, I show all the female trades so many cartoons make fun of.I wish I co...

  • More, More, More!

    I stood in the kitchen and prepared my all-time favorite Thanksgiving leftover dish. A slice of the hideous miniature gluten-free bread, homemade mayonnaise, gluten-free stuffing, homemade cranberry sauce and of course, a nice heap of cold turkey, he...

    It's a huge battle which I suck at some days. I don't know about you, but even though I am not afraid of being mugged my a chocolate cake with vanilla icing (is this profiling), this effing food thing is tough. It does not care how fit you are, or wh...

    The other night I disappeared under the Christmas tree and picked up all the non-breakable, dog-proof ornaments, that had somehow fallen off the tree. Still laying under the tree, I straightened out the tree skirt, which the puppy had messed up -agai...

  • Have I Been Sick?

    Walking with Nordic Sticks in the winter time just seems to make more sense, and I feel now more comfortable when I walk in my park. The park has always been there, I just never had a use for it. As a matter of fact, it takes me less than two minutes...
