Head start on healthy

Friday was ambitious. In a positive way. The boy and I had planned to go for a run. I figured there’s no reason I have to wait till February 1st to get started with my running plans. Now’s as good a time as any! So run it is. Well, I woke up late on Friday … Continue reading

Just another old wives tale?

“If a black cat crosses your path, it signifies that the animal is going somewhere.” – Groucho Marx I don’t consider myself superstitious. Not overly superstitious anyway.

It’ll rain every now and again and we’ll have sunny days and … Continue reading

2013 – let’s try this again

So in my last blog post (almost 5 months ago) I promised that I wouldn’t wait another 2-3 months to post again. Good news is, I was true to my promise. Bad news is I haven’t been around in almost double that time. And with the new year comes the resolve to do better, accomplish … Continue reading
