No time, you say? Well, that’s just a whole lot of hogwash! I am really getting sick of it. I have said this before in these pages, and as much as it pains me, I will say it again. I cannot tell you how often I am forced to nod sympathetically when I hear the […]

I was kind of surprised when the scale didn’t go “tilt” or scream for me to get the hell off when I stepped on it this morning. It was up, of course, but only by 2.6 pounds. I did go for a run today, too, and it was a beautiful afternoon for it. It would […]

We were really savvy to leave NY at 7 a.m. today. Missed ALL Tgiving day traffic due to this foresight, of course having had advantage of making this trip innumerable times these past decades, year in and hear out. Got home at 2, with plenty of daylight left, plenty of time to unpack, sort through […]

Every trip to Mom’s, I hear this phrase, or a variation thereof, at least once: “I can’t understand why you’re not as fat as a horse.”These words from Mom’s lips usually follow a particularly gluttonous string of behaviors by yours truly. Today, she added, “You must have a very high metabolism.” I can only imagine […]

When it comes to being with my fam, you can’t just chillax or hang out. Someone is always impatient and trying to get you to do things you do not want to. This really stresses me out, even when I am the one inciting the rushing. This weekend so far, someone was always in a […]

We made it to New York once again, but as I mentioned in previous post, tried too late to book rooms on our usual home away from home, The Tarrytown Springhill Suites, and even the next most desirable Marriott Courtyard, across the street, although it, too, has some desirable features, was booked, and unfortunately, once […]

I just got annoyed by a few ridiculous articles in The New York Times Sunday Review section, and also some of the main section articles were rather irritating. I am not going to get into a major analysis as to exactly what bothered me because I have no desire to provide a scholarly critique. But […]

Well, my friend Jenny blew me off at the last minute today. We were supposed to go for a five mile run At 11 a.m., but she decided to go earlier with Don and their dogs, Striker [their old dog who can’t really run too well anymore) and Luna (their very young just out of […]

Forgive me, dear readers, for I have sinned. It has been over a week since my last blog post. My sin was not blogging, and I hope this apology, without excuses (although I am sorely tempted to explain myself) for my negligence will suffice as atonement. In the past week, After the rush of over-joyousness […]
