Despite my lack of blogging, yes, the world does go on. Surprise! Okay, not so much. Let’s see… where do we stand today? My eldest daughter was to move out to her own apartment next Saturday, but possibly now has to wait until later next week as she’s having landlord issues (things not being ready […]
I didn’t (and still don’t) intend on this blog becoming a health and diet journal, but honestly people… I have to tell you this stuff or I’ll explode. Bear with me. The last post? The update? Well, those jeans were a size 12. I analyzed the way they fit and wondered, “can I get into […]
