Embracing the nerd within me.

I know a lot of people who have tattoos. some even have many. Some are very close to me- 2 of my kids+my partner have them- the above picture is the tattoo my son had in honor of our beloved dog, Sirius, who passed away a few months ago. (still brings tears to my eyes …

How I stopped complaining.

I don’t particularly like complaining. Doesn’t necessarily mean I don’t do it- but I don’t enjoy it. I decided on my 50th birthday that I am not about to spend the next 50 or so years , going on and on about things . Either I can change the situation-or I can’t- either way- what’s …

Running errands as an introvert!

A few days ago, I was talking to my good friend (we go back more than 25 years of blood sweat &tears at work, and kept our friendship through retirement), and she has this thing where she insists on talking with me when she runs errands around town.   The thing is, she gets really worked …

So- I thought to myself-( I do that a lot. it’s definitely a good thing to befriend yourself, especially in times of social isolation- …

Does changing your mind=failure??

So, I’ve had this “math fantasy” for a long time. There you go- Just when you thought you’ve heard every strange fantasy, comes a strange new one and opens your perspective. The thing is, when I were in high school, I liked the cleanliness of math equations. the fact that there was a clear cut …

Time to pair up!

I have enough (too much?) time to wonder why pears don’t enjoy the great PR apples do. Oh wait- before I start persuading you to occasionally switch between the 2, need I remind anyone that I am under no circumstances a registered dietitian or anything of the sort? Pears are in season now , as …

Yummy healthy post workout breakfast!!

Autumn is here, finally. Love this short, sweet season. I guess everybody does, I mean what’s not to like about fair weather, falling leaves, the promise of a cozy winter (things always look better when expecting them- also see- trips abroad: a dream before- many times a disaster during, a dream in retrospect. that’s the …

Apple-sauce instead of what??

Apples are a favorite of mine. I absolutely think fruit are nature’s fancy cakes, and I am risking being labeled as a douch/purist/hippie/all 3 together-and I don’t give a f%^&. Because- I am a true skeptic, and almost everything in life-in my opinion , is to be seriously doubted and double, if not triple-checked before …

Why I keep asking myself “why?”

When I was “somewhat of a boss” at work. I attended a management course at the university. They taught us all kinds of methods to engage workers in the work they are meant to do. The work they get paid to do. I know I sound old , but all the while I thought “why …
