Breakfast Burgers & Bloody Marys

Men, I have a question for you. What did women do that every time you try to compliment a member of the other sex, you have to follow it up with a long explanation or apology? Now, I’m not talking those sleazy low brow attempts that I get while trying to check out at the market. I’m talking about genuine compliments. Today, a male client of mine asked if I lost weight then immediately started to explain that I hadn’t needed to lose weight and wasn’t fat before. This explanation turned into a 5 minute apology, all before I had […]

They come out perfect every time, unless you are one of those people who always burns them (I’ve known a few).

I am not above throwing a can or two in the cart when things are on sale, and, I must confess, I do subscribe to the Pillsbury weekly email. Yes, I am all sorts of classy. Really, they have some appealing quick recipes on there and I think they […]

Serenity Prayer

I am a ‘doer.’ The type of person who doesn’t wait for anything else – if something needs to change, I change it. Its an amazing ability I poses that I have learned not everyone does. Some people just don’t change things. Or change things very very slowly. So, where I have not embraced my inability to pick up the universe it and change it, I am trying to be more accepting of the things I can change. I’m currently referring them to The Things I Can Do Something About in my daily inner narration. I can not pay myself […]
