As I reported in Sometimes, Life Forces You to Pivot, I had an anxiety attack that put me in atrial fibrillation, and sent my heart up to 257 beats per-minute. The following day, they did a few procedures to set my heart back to normal sinus rhythm – so it beats as closely to a “normal” […]
Have you ever been stumped about what to bring to a dinner party, especially if the host tells you to bring nothing? This handy guide to host/ess gifts will help you out.
I just noticed that it’s been almost a month since I posted here. I want to apologize to you. I never meant to leave this site behind. I just got overwhelmed, super homesick, and anxious with FOMO in a major way. I tried logging off Facebook and only hanging on Twitter. I like the way […]
I am challenged every year to decorate for a holiday in the least-expensive way possible. This year’s challenge was extended by Sarah over at Geeks Who Eat. She asked that I show how to transform dollar items into chic and stylish Halloween decorations. I went a little farther, and because cheap is the operative word […]
It’s October, and that means it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month. I’ve lost two grandmothers to breast cancer, and had at least one other relative with it. I’ve had several girlfriends survive it, and one recently not (Coffee Clinks, Marie). So, here’s the deal: it’s really easy. Go give your girls a squish. Right now. I’ll […]
Today, I almost sacrificed my flip flop to the Atlantic Ocean. After I dropped everything and dove into the surf after a shoe, I wondered 2 things: Should I own more than 1 pair of flip flops? and How far do you think my flip flop would’ve gotten, if I had just watched it float away? […]
I figure I better put this up, since people are ranting about this week’s show on last week’s post. This week, Carmen withdrew because of the injuries she sustained from eating the floor on last week’s episode. At least, that’s what she said. I have a feeling she just couldn’t keep playing with the meat […]
I hadn’t been at my new home for 2 hours when a friend of mine texted and asked when he could visit. Truthfully, he could have flown in the next day because I hadn’t been around people for a week, and was ready to be surrounded by laughter again. Instead, I asked him to give […]
Welp, Carson is out. He really messed it all up by not cooking his chicken thoroughly TWICE. I’m sad to see him go, and I’ll miss his humor. I have to be completely honest, though, I’ve been so distracted after my excellent vacation with a good friend in Sunny South Florida, and worried about Hurricane […]
This week’s Worst Cooks: Celebrity was pretty funny. I don’t know why I get a kick out of watching people scramble to do something based on instructions they didn’t make note of. It’s probably because I can identify with them. Do you know how many times I’ve not written something down, thinking, “I’ll remember that”, […]
Oh! I can’t wait to see how this is going to turn out. The first episode is in the books, and I have changed my mind about who I want to win. Originally, I was rooting for Nora and Carson. I had hopes they’d be on separate teams, and come head-to-head in the end. They […]
I am resistant to anything that makes me slow down and take a look around me, at least physically. I always notice beautiful things while I’m on the go, but as you might imagine, it’s fleeting. This is why yoga is so hard for me, and why in need it. I first thought about practicing […]
I started watching Worst Cooks in America in its first season in 2010, and was instantly smitten. I’m not much of a reality show watcher, except when it comes to cooking competitions. I adore Chopped, The Great British Baking Show, Beat Bobby Flay, Guy’s Grocery Games, and others. In case you’ve never seen Worst Cooks […]
It’s all in the journey, isn’t it? I mean that in both a literal and figurative way. The physical act of moving, whether it’s through exercise or relocation, adds perspective. Doubly so, when you do it alone. I just made one such journey. Heading Out If you missed it, I packed everything up and moved […]
Since preseason football is only 10 days away, it’s probably time for me to share this with you. Here’s your free printable 2107 Denver Broncos Season Schedule. Enjoy & Share!
Almost a month ago, I was sitting on my back patio in 40-degree weather, comfortably warm without my socks. It’s not that my fluffy robe was keeping me warm, nor was it my quickly cooling coffee. My blood might as well have been boiling, when this article came across my feed: Don’t Be Fooled: TV Chefs’ […]
