Greetings from Cancún, Mexico! Remarkably, I managed to wake up on time to catch my flight and made it here without issue (outside of the overweight bag. Seriously, my suitcase must weigh 49 pounds on its own. WTF??? I packed bikinis, people. Argh.). In case you were wondering, my solo vacation has been fabulous, and educational. A few tidbits for your reading pleasure. Continue reading

In a few short days, I will be heading out of town for a week of sun, sleep, spa, and (hopefully) total and complete relaxation. Vacation! It cannot get here quickly enough. I am sure I will have a blast, and how can I not? I’m going with me, myself and I. No one else.

Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful, people. Continue reading

“You look sad.”
“You look stressed out.”
“Why are your eyes puffy?”
“Are you all right? Are you sure? Really?”
“You’re beautiful for 39.”
(Please note … I AM NOT 39! I have
many, many, many years to go!). Continue reading
So last week was a bitch. Seriously, most days I felt as though I had been run over by a truck — and then that truck backed up and ran over me again. However, a 9-hour sleep on Thursday and a 12-hour sleep on Friday certainly re-charged my batteries. While I was up and full of energy before 7 a.m. on Saturday morning, Arlington County declared a state of emergency and joined the rest of the East coast on a Hurricane Irene
PANIC!!!!!!! alert/watch. Continue reading
