Guess it was time I post this morning. Today we are faced with yet another snow storm on the horizon. I am SO done with winter at this point I can't even tell you. My poor calendar has had to be rejuggled so many times it is not even funny. First, no workout since last Monday. I went today but because I'm sick with this darned head cold, well, it was a light workout. Last week, because of the snow, I had to yet again cancel my massage and facial. I have the worst luck with that and I so need it right now....more

Snow, Dinner and a Toilet

Yup, doing a double post today.  I've pre-written a couple but since the weather is playing a huge part in my life right now...It is quite beautiful this early, early morning and I'm happy to be all safe and warm at home today.  The Hubby is being a real hard headed guy this morning.  He is pretty determined that he can go work out at Hillcrest (not going to be open!) and then on to the office (where none of our guys are going to be there).  For gosh sakes we can not even see the road out in front of our house for the blowing stuff and the pile up.  He will drive me...more

The work of relationships

I was talking with a friend about Laura Munson’s article, from the New York Times, “Those Aren’t Fighting Words, Dear.”  Munson's husband told her that he didn't love her and wanted out of the relationship, and Munson told him she didn't believe him, then gave him time to work out the issues that were haunting him.  ...more

In Sickness and In Health

For us, last weekend was one of those times when, as parents, you ask yourselves – aren’t Saturday and Sunday meant to be for rest? The visit to the London Natural History Museum was fun but was also absolutely exhausting. Sophia was already cranky and hungry because, as she was eating so slowly (one of my biggest pet peeves I must admit), we were forced to curtail lunch lest the entire afternoon lapse! Compound this with the fact that she hasn’t completely transitioned out of her stroller and wants to get in and out every 10 minutes, you can understand my early bedtime....more

I think the kid pulled a bluff

Kids are right tinkers they are. At lunchtime today my phone started ringing. I picked up the handset, "Hello?" "Hi, it's Miss Chambers here - Izzy's teacher at school," said the voice at the other end. "Oh hello, what can I do for you?" I asked. "Izzy isn't feeling very well and I was wondering whether you could come and collect her?" asked Miss Chambers. "Yes of course, I can," I replied, before adding, "what's wrong with her?" "I am not entirely sure to be honest, I think she might just be feeling a bit delicate." ...more
