Staying, night three, in S. Hadley, Mass, the home of Mt. Holyoke, Alma Mater of Virginia Apgar, Emily Dickinson, and Wendy Wasserstein, among other illustrious alumnae. After many days bereft of cb, we met him at my fave Boston Hotel, The Royal Sonesta, where we had a breakfast buffet. After yesterday, when Mollie completed the […]

As the reader is aware, i am prone to binge behavior, but as i have gotten older, i am able to bring my maturity and weight management strategies and tools to bear and pretty much avoid bingeing most of the time. The bingeing is different now than it used to be, partly because i make […]

Amazing. What did I awaken to this morning? An e-mailed sonnet from my ever-romantic husby. What other husby writes such deeply loving original and touching, tear-inspiring sonnets for his wifeby of 29 plus years? They trip from his mind to his fingers with such ease and deep feeling. He reaches to the core of me […]

More food prep. I am really on a roll! Made the zero PointsPlus WW soup, but get this: recipes for WW that contain only zero PointsPlus ingredients can add up to more than the sum of what you think would be the whole. My coleslaw recipe, por ejemplo, calls for six cups of shredded cabbage, […]

There are always so many permutations and combinations of things to worry about all the time, in this day and age and in every day and age before us. Sometimes, I find myself falling into the abyss, the hell pit of worry. It can be all-encompassing. Worry fever tends to reach its pitch these days […]

Normally, I have had time on Thursdays to blog and have been doing that with extreme regularity. However, in the past few weeks this has been problematic and will continue to be so. This is due to lots of extra time I am spending with work-related tasks. I have really been logging in the hours. […]

I engage in mind games willingly. There are a million and one tricks I play on myself each and every day in order to stay on track with weight loss and weight loss maintenance. These could be termed strategies to ensure sustained weight loss success. Instead, I could be really pissed off. Because every year, […]

The Indirect Approach

How do we know when people are angry at us? Sometimes people will tell you, and will tell you why. Other times, people won’t tell you, and will deny that they are angry, but they ACT angry. How do they do this? They give you the cold shoulder. But they do it in such a […]

cb and I are a paradox. Get it? Lol. Before anything else is said, I MUST render my most abject apologies to one of my favorite specialties, OB/GYN, and especially to my saviors, Maryanne Hugo, who is a great friend and compassionate, brilliant physician, and Christine Tyndall, who delivered Max (“just because he isn’t crying […]
