The models looked ravishing. once again, we held it at The Herberman Conference Center at Shadyside Hospital, which is a perfect venue. The biggest difference this year was that three […]

Due to someone’s carelessness, I wasted about three or four hours this afternoon. Even though issue may have been resolved at the end of it all. We git six dining room chairs from Target. We do not tend to spend a lot of bucks on high end furniture most of the time, because cb and […]

It is nice to have an affectionate pet for a change. I know, Catja has been our pet for almost five years already, but for the other part of my life, the only pets I knew were the likes of goldfish, turtles, tortoises, mice, gerbils and finally bunnies – and our bunnies were a rude […]

I guess i should be surprised it doesn’t happen more often than it does. Given my overall klutziness. Plus, I have really weak ankles, the opposite of cankles, which is in a way a good thing. My ankles are one part of me I never worry about being too fat, except on days like today, […]

In past two weeks since home, weight has slowly come down towards baseline. Very very slow – or so it seems – because scale fluctuates a lot every day and it is hard to know if average is trending downward. Grand total gain had been up 3.6 pounds, I think, when compared to the day […]

I did get through that run – four miles – yesterday, albeit a bit slower than I would have preferred. About 53 minutes. Weather was the best it has been for months and months. Wore gloves a warm shirt and hoodie over a t shirt, and one of those ugly hats, lr rather the type […]
