Winter WINE-ing

Who's ready for SPRING? I'm already channeling warmer weather,  flip-flops and tan lines. Winter is sooo hard! I become calloused for motivation.  Getting out of bed for work on the cold, rainy, dismal winter days is worse than domestic manual labor. I literally have to pep talk myself to toss back the covers and wake… Continue reading Winter WINE-ing

EXIT

How is everyone doing this last day in January.  Can you believe it's almost FEBRUARY? Last year I was challenged by a friend and workout warrior to participate in a "one word for the year" challenge.  With fierce eagerness, I tackled this word like I had a tiger in my tank.  I fell in love… Continue reading EXIT

What to expect when you’re working out?

The second the doctor confirmed what the home pregnancy test had already revealed, I flew out of the office to the nearest book store to purchase the ever so coveted "What to expect when you're expecting!"  This was way way back in the day, circa 2002, before I had a smart phone and Amazon Prime. … Continue reading What to expect when you’re working out?

The thrilla with Gorilla

My Mr. Chicken Fry wasn't the the handiest man on the block when we first met. I don't mean to imply that he was completely helpless.  It's just that most things around the house were outside of his rhelm of fixing. Sometimes our fixer upper needed are more than his tinker toy tool cup can… Continue reading The thrilla with Gorilla

What’s the deal with hotel coffee?

I can remember a time when small coffee pots made their entrance into actual hotel rooms. At the time, mid nineties, I was in my early twenties working my way up the corporate ladder and jetting around the country for business conventions. I hope you think that sounds so adult and cool because at the… Continue reading What’s the deal with hotel coffee?

I wrote the piece on Jeff Rhorer to fill in the gaps for anyone struggling with their own sexuality or for those who simply don't understand. There are plenty of us, gay or straight, that are confused and disconnected by such a CHANGE! In 2018 there seems to remain humans who are totally lost on… Continue reading Changes and Exchanges – phase 3
