It is necessary to reiterate here that all my problems, past and present, cannot comment on future because it would be bad luck, are First World Problems, meaning trivial. Even worrying about Third World problems is a first world problem. In acknowledging this, I also acknowledge that whatever I write about in these blog posts […]

Springhill Suites

With just about 40 minutes of blogging before leaving The Suites for my Mom’s house, before which we are going to CTownTownTown to get a few vegetaboos, I had better hurry. As horrible as the weather was – slippery roads, heavy swirling snowfall – during the entire excruciatingly long drive to NY yesterday, we are […]

First World Problems

Knowing that I am spoiled rotten doesn’t stop me from kvetching. I admit right off the bat, and somewhat shamefacedly that I have no problems that are not first world problems, meaning I have no problems. But my first world problem of the day is that I have waited till today to order a certain […]

I am sitting here with my third or fourth cuppa joe, and have had a companionaboo morning with my wonderfoo son, Maxi, and I am wearing the latest in fashion: another pair of Jeggings, blue jean colored, purchased on that day I discovered I had breast cancer, an orangey-pink thermal top I got on sale […]

Kind of Distracted

I am kind of distracted from blogging right now because I am sitting in the living room amidst family members who, in between being snarky, whistling, telling each oth to stop whistling, chatting are using their own electronic devices to e mail each other about some new evidence about a newly discovered type of cell […]

Time To Put On The Big Girl Panties (maybe)

I had all sorts of ideas about blogging topics, so I am afraid this one’s gonna be all over the place. Firstly, I am into about my almost 72nd hour on call and have about 36 more to go after which I will be way too exhausted to enjoy the rest of the holiday, which […]

First, let me say how happy I am to be blogging today. It is such a major stress-reducer for me. Next I shall return to the topic at hand. As I get older and hopefully more mature, confident, and experienced in all matters of life, although not as evolved, I hope, as I will ultimately […]

It has been hard not to think back on 9/11 when the boys were both at Frick middle school and Mollie was still in pre-school. After Julia called me to tell me about the attacks, running across the street to be with her – her kids did not go to preschool, so they were home, […]

Did Someone Say “Stress?”

As stressful as the holidays may seem for so many of us, there are at least twenty families who would do anything to be experiencing such ordinary and in many ways actually comforting seasonal angst right now. I guess people who kill people ( because, God knows, guns most definitively do not) are so self-centered […]

Not Exercising

Posted by Vicki on December 13th, 2012 under Attitude, Exercise, priorities, stress management

Before you say anything, I would like to explain that there was a plan B, C, D, E, etc., and I did at least and at last choose perhaps plan Z which was a plan, but not the ideal plan. Usually on Thursday mornings, i get up at 5:00 and meet Jenny for a walk […]
