So you know The Magic Dumbbell story is not true right? The other day I got to thinking about how it seems as if famous people gain a lot of weight, then magically get it removed in record time. We ordinary mortals make excuses that it is because they can afford a personal trainer,..

Once upon a time there was a bee-you-tee-full Hollywood movie star who had been pregnant then delivered a beautiful baby girl. She had a movie premier she needed to appear at, but alas! When she looked down at her body, she squawked and cried aloud, Alas! I have put on 50 pounds. Oh woe is..
I’m going to take a break away from the trauma of living without a microwave and chat about something GOOD! I just recently read about a spa that served cucumber water. This isn’t the first time I’d heard about cucumber water. And I add cucumber when juicing carrots. Who knew cucumber was so delish?? Since I’m..
I have to tell you, it’s been tough living without a microwave.

Quite a title, huh! Well I had to pull a Tough Love on myself for our 16th wedding anniversary. Alpha Hubby was willing to take me to the only romantic restuarant in our area. It’s one we always go to for our annivesary – Swiss – where you can have amazing cheese fondue (yes I..
Well, I guess I shouldn’t call shopping doom except sometimes when I shop, if feels doom-y and is occasionally a huge waste of money. I know I am going to be facing some of my former enemies. They are NOT going to go easy on me. They surround me and taunt me, yelling, “Buy me,..
