Hear her roar – she’s forty-four

Age is a funny thing.  Kids can’t wait to tell you how old they are, and they’ll even cheat a bit by rounding up to the next number. Teenagers can’t wait to be older.  I think one of the greatest compliments I ever received as a 16 year old was being told, ‘really?  You look […]

Good Naked vs. Bad Naked

When I was little…

I so enjoyed Karen’s version that I had to follow with my own trip down memory lane.  If you feel like playing along, I’d love to read some of your answers to any or all of the questions below.     I wanted to grow up to: run my own rescue sanctuary for mistreated Circus […]

Extended post on mental illness within a family

I’ve been sitting here lately reflecting on some upcoming posts for the Hate-Loss Challenge that I’m beginning in January.  Specifically the question, ‘What makes me the way I am and why do I still struggle with self-esteem issues, shyness and negative thoughts in my life?’ Something I wrote in a previous post kept coming back […]

Foodie Memories: Father-Style

My father was a very interesting man, and he had a very interesting way of looking at food.  He didn’t horde it, but if there was an opportunity to get food in bulk form, he wouldn’t think twice about stockpiling it in our basement, giving little thought as to what it was or whether he […]

Memory Lane: The Obesity Lies

You’re about to read a Memory Lane Post: one of my favorites over the past year.  Little did I know when I wrote this post, originally published on February 1st of this year, that it would create as much buzz as it did by gaining the most combined comment/email responses of any other post I’ve […]

Memory Lane: Lessons from a Golden

This post was originally written on October 4th, 2010 and as you can see from the photo below, Mandy was still pretty spry for an old gal.  However, her health took a quick turn for the worse shortly after this post was written and sadly, she died less than two weeks later.  Even though Mandy […]

Memory Lane: Comfort Zone Challenge-The Party

My neighbor April and I were talking last Wednesday night when she asked me if I wanted to go to a party that her daughter Joanne was having (a direct marketing party, like selling Tupperware – except this was jewelry).  Normally under a situation like this I would run for the hills, or at the […]

Memory Lane: The Dream Body Lottery

Expectation [ek–spek-tey–shuhn]: the degree of probability that something will occur; a prospect of future good or profit. From 1990 to 2004 I knew exactly what that word meant. To me, it meant that when I met my goal weight of 130 pounds, I was going to be living a different life. When I won the […]
