I have basically been at home (with about 3-4 outings for essentials) for 39 days. (The minions were ill 2 weeks before the stay at home orders in our state were put into effect). In these 39 days, I've learned a couple of things about myself. I consider myself an introvert, with a few extrovert tendencies. … Continue reading Day Fiftyteenth: I don’t even know anymore, and does it really matter?
You know that SNL sketch where the verbiage of a "deep thought" with the Jack Handy voice over lays out a bunch of nonsense?

Taken on the balcony of the Hale Koa hotel in Honolulu, we were so excited to … Continue reading Snapshot Story
For as long as I can remember, I've had a fear of heights. I remember climbing along rooftops with my father as he was building houses when I was really young, but since about 4 or 5 years old, heights and I do not get along. As a kid, we went to carnivals when they came to … Continue reading Make My Tummy Go Gooey! (Aka the post with 1000 pictures)
There are some days when I just don't feel like working out. When the warmth of my comforter feels much more inviting than wrestling a sports bra, slipping on workout clothes, consuming fuel and heading out into what still feels like the middle of the night. But imagine what I miss when I don't get … Continue reading Just Imagine
