It occurred to me the other day that I was falling into a rut in terms of eating. I'm eating well, it's mostly very healthy, it works for me, but there isn't a lot of variety. There are a number of reasons for this, but that's not the point. ... Read more

I know it's been a while since I've blogged - I guess there just hasn't been anything monumental, or maybe I'm distracted. I spent last weekend at a dance camp - my usual Memorial Day Weekend occupation. The weather in Malibu was glorious,... Read more

I rushed home from work yesterday to get ready for my long run. The usual 'stuff' went into the fanny pack and I debated leaving my cell phone behind but decided to take it after all. The purse goes under the seat, and I keep the car keys in t... Read more

I finally had the stitches taken out of my scalp yesterday. That's a bit of a relief - less itching - but the scalp is still tender. I did run into the doctor, and he explained the lab results to me. Very different from what the nurse said...... Read more

I know the dermatologist thought I was being silly in wanting the cyst removed. But I was getting tired of hitting it with my hairbrush every time I brushed my hair. This was the second cyst to appear in the same spot. I lived with the fi... Read more
