Fishing and Meatballs (but not together)

July 9, 2012

I spent today fishing. And believe me, if I wasn’t already aware, today I really realized how lucky I am that much of my work is online. I worked for an entire day today…before 8:30am and after 4:30pm. In between those times? I picked up my favorite 8 year-old and we went fishing for 6 [...]

Happy Thankgiving: Write {or text} a Love Note

November 24, 2011

I’m thankful for a lot of things… Right now, I’m dwelling on this: We’ve graduated from all the “Hi” texts to full phrases. And if I don’t answer right away, I’m likely to have 3 or 4 voicemails waiting for me… Who was the last person you sent a love note {text} to?

Oranges vs. Candy (and the Oranges Won!)

October 31, 2011

Thank you for all the super thoughtful things you all said to me over the last few days… It helped. A lot. Joe was gone to DC for the weekend to run the Marine Corps Marathon, so I was flying solo, and it turned out to be a really great weekend (except one crappy part, [...]

Texting and Fitness Update (changes due to rain)

September 7, 2011

Since Matthew got his cell phone last Friday, I have been the lucky recipient of hundreds of text messages that say… Hi I usually text him back, and ask questions (and secretly think I am helping him read better). He called me several times for a few days, and then I didn’t hear from him [...]

New is New…and Old can be New too.

August 25, 2011

I used to know this old Ukranian lady who moved to Rochester from Elmira after her husband died…her “new” house was built in the ’90s, and she just kept saying over and over, “I always say, New is New.” I think of that now when things change for me. I’ve always been dead set against [...]

Vegan Cauliflower/Cashew Un-Crust…and Menopause

July 21, 2011

After speculating about how the cauliflower pizza crust could be made vegan with the cashew cheese sauce from the Cheesy Kelp Noodles…I decided to give it a whirl today. As I was heating up the oven, I wasn’t thinking about NY’s outrageous heat index, but shortly thereafter I realized that today should not have been [...]

Simplicity of the Moment

June 6, 2011

Resourcefulness and Improvisation are two important factors in empowering wellness changes in our lives, and even in just day-to-day productivity. At some point along the path of growing up, we lose some of our mojo with this. School doesn’t really teach us to do these things—instead, it requires us to follow rules and complete tasks [...]

The Aftermath!

December 26, 2010

Wow, what a week! My visiting friends are gone, the commitments for food and drink are over…it’s freezing outside (but I did manage to go on a walk or two), and my apartment is even super duper clean. We stay pretty low key around here for any and all holidays—we’re just not fancy party kind [...]

Weekend Food Plan…or Compromising to Eat with Kids

November 19, 2010

What are your plans for this weekend?  I’m eagerly anticipating picking up a certain second-grader this afternoon so we can get started on our weekend fun. Joe’s out of town for work all weekend, and my mom just had surgery—(sorry guys, both of those things sound pretty crappy to me) and I’m totally thrilled to [...]

Random Stress Management Rule

September 23, 2010

I’ve found that sometimes, rather than trying to control my reactions to stressful situations, it can be easier to just control the situation. This sounds contrary to the standard advice, “You can’t change the situation, you can only change you’re reaction to it.” That’s often true, but let’s tackle this stress monster in multiple ways, [...]
