A little naughtiness can be good for the soul

For the most part, The Commander and I eat clean. In doing so, in the past year we’ve both lost and kept off a combined 40 pounds. We like eating clean. It helps that I’m a rock star in the kitchen – The Commander is always happy with what I feed him (well, except for […]

A little bit of puniness can go a long way….. or not so much.

Is it weird that I fantasize about cleaning my house? Lately, when my massage therapist makes me cry in pain and she tells me to go to my ‘happy place’ – instead of envisioning myself in the woods of Cohoctah or on the lovely shores of Lake Superior, I picture myself vacuuming. It’s not that […]

The Prettier Side of Neglect

The Prettier Side of Neglect

Apparently, if you plant a bunch of veggies, then completely ignore them for six weeks, you won’t get the yield you were hoping for. Tuck that gem away, it may come in handy someday. I’m not much of a gardener, but I’m trying to learn. Last year, with the help of my mother-in-law I managed […]

I Gave Up World Domination For A Hot Sandwich

I’ve been trying to get into cooking dinner again, but it’s hard. Last week, after my door-busting grocery shopping trip, I had planned on making one of The Commander’s favorites: spaghetti with homemade meatballs and sauce. But then, I had a session with my massage therapist with whom I have a major love-hate relationship with since the hour […]

Progress… sort of.

Progress… sort of.

I finally went grocery shopping. The Commander requires daily feedings, and shopping became…. very necessary. When I arrived at the grocery store, a manager saw me hobbling up to the door and met me with an electric cart, restoring my faith in the human race. I wasn’t really excited about using it, but there was no […]

Overcoming Excessive Puniness: One glass of wine at a time

I’ve been feeling puny this week. Narcolepsy and my healing foot have been wreaking havoc on my sleep cycle. I wake frequently throughout the night as it is, now I have a foot with nerves randomly and painfully shooting off all night long. On top of that, being Mayor of My Couch is getting old. […]

Getting back into the swing of things: I tried to sweep, but it was too hard….

As I mentioned in my previous post, I spent the first week or so after my surgery in a drug induced haze. Since then, I’ve been trying to get back into a somewhat ‘normal’ routine. I have not been too successful. Seven days after my surgery, I slipped on my crutches and landed on my […]
