I have been telling people so for over a decade... Hibernation from December to late February should be mandatory for mothers. Just think about it... A few months to catch up on sleep and to lose weight without doing anything and on top of that, it would make winter much shorter! What's not to like… Continue reading Hibernation – Where Do I Sign Up?
#1 In my neck of the woods, a forecast of 19 C and 20 C for a 21st ad 22nd of October is highly exceptional. Usually, by this time, the mercury hovers in the positive one digit temperature, the car heater is on in the morning and a light scarf is sometimes necessary. I went… Continue reading Three Rare Occurrences
Powerlessness leave parents heart-broken.
Wow! August went by like a ball of fire! (You watch roll and you keep your hands off of it!) Seriously, it has been so busy I ended up in September wondering where those 31 days went. I've been busy moving my ageing mother to a new apartment. She left a remote area to live… Continue reading What Happened?!
Enjoy the process rather be anxious over the result, be brave enough to follow your instincts and dare be different. Going against the mainstream is not easy. We are trained to fit in. From the moment we start moving we know restraints, confinement, little space. We are training to occupy and mess our own personal… Continue reading Dare Be Yourself
This marketing stuff is a vicious [circle] circus! Know your audience, know how to reach them, know what they want and provide it... and don't forget to let them know you give them added value! (Like a free ebook on a topic they are actually interested in.) Well, I can get a good visual of… Continue reading What a Circus!
I am one week away from a two-week summer break. Needless to say, I am looking forward to it. The night-owl I am will enjoy sleeping in a bit, to slow down the pace and hopefully recharge my battery a little bit. I expect a couple of friends to visit although nothing is confirmed yet.… Continue reading One Week Away
I am at such an age I need to focus on what's right for me. I have given my all and then some for a very long time and now I am paying the price for abusing my body (lack of sleep, lack of activity, lack of relaxation). The first step is the hardest as… Continue reading Stop Forcing It!
I am excited. My landlord is "remodeling" my bathroom. Okay, remodeling might be too strong a word here, but there will be a change. The protection walls above the bath tub will be renewed... as the older ones are cracked and letting water into the wall. There is no say how much water damage there… Continue reading New, Brand New
Living an unbalanced life is the easiest thing in the world! Have an extra bite too often, read a book too late into the night too often, forego that walk you know you should take on more nights than what's good for you and you are out of balance. It takes effort and determination to… Continue reading Balance: the Never Ending Quest
