We went early this year, and to another location. This time, we drove to Ann Arbor after work last Friday, arriving at Grace and Stu’s at close to midnight. I had packed dinner for the car ride, but of course our hosts, clearly exhausted from their workdays, offered us food and drink, which we politely […]

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 […]

This is not the same as match point. I have a set point which can go up easily but to get it to go down is very tough and with each passing year, it is tougher and tougher. As you may have guessed, it os all about my weight. Although i have been technically at […]

After my spontaneous suggestion to Jenny that the girls (plus cb and maybe Patrick “do shots” at her going away party Saturday while the guys watch!their boring football upstairs in spare room, I became curious, wondering whether and then realizing that we should, in fact would have to, come up with some good drinking games.

Feels like the first Xmas in a long time that I have had nothing scheduled. Very nice. Got to sleep in, be lazy. Mollie and cb are recovering from acute unpleasant illnesses, and timing for them was good. I would like to take a nap this afternoon, as I did yesterday. I am more tired […]

Day Off

I am very glad I took today off. But need to accept that sometimes a day off is really a day off. It is hard to accept that maybe an afternoon nap is an acceptable activity on a day off. Or that a five mile walk is ok. Or just sitting and thinking or reading […]
