My nails are thin, weak and split at the sight of water. I tried everything ... vitamins, rubber gloves, manicures among other things and nada ... nothing works.

I was having a cocktail on my deck with a friend who has nice nails and she recommended I get a dip. A...

I attended a workshop in Denver for my job and there is a reason I was never a very good student ... I cannot be talked at for hours upon hours. The droning is like a white noise that makes me sleep. The speaker either needs to be brief or a standup comedian....

Brad and I have both been hit with what I can only describe as the plague with Black Death coming soon.  Alternatively, some may call it a bad head cold. 

Apparently, this illness affects men much worse than women (specifically wives). It just so happened...

Brad has been on a mission to declutter the house before it implodes and we retire. He has banned me from bringing anything into the house and if I do, something must leave. He drives a hard bargain, which I ignore.

Last week he dragged everything out of the crawl space...

There is a reason I do not like to exercise - exercising does not love me and either do the people who support exercise.

Brad and Jake were away fishing so I called Mag for an 18 miles bike ride. I can always count on her to be my wingman. We geared up and headed out fo...

                 I am doing a picture story for this long winded blog. Let me start by letting you know that I do not really like concerts. I also do not like country (folk is worse). There may be a country song or two that I like, but as a whole not my thing....

 I spend a lot of time thinking about my hair - not styling my hair, but thinking should I go long or short. Thanx to my friend Leighann, my hair is once again in my thoughts.

Do I grow it or do I cut it? Seriously I ask this question every day. BTW I am not looking for...

Brad is always telling me to stay in my lane.

Which lane does he want me to stay in? The Dairy Queen lane picking up my Valentine's cake? I know how to drive as a passenger lane? Let me give you directions lane. Maybe it is the I wish my children would listen to me lane...

 Some people make resolutions in the New Year, I make doctor appointments. Yesterday was my annual retina appointment. 

I go to my eye doctor so I can see and yet he insists on sending me out blind. 

After my eyes are dilated, the doctor flashes a bright light...

 I know you all having been dealing with me whining about my knee and I do not see that ending any time soon. Sorry

We usually go to CU Sports Medicine and Performance Center and for those who are not familiar with this place, I am the oldest and by far the most unfit i...
