Body Trap

I am like most women my age who have had kids - pudgy around the middle. We seem to have been caught in a trap of never being able to lose and keep off the weight we gained from carrying our children. I guess it's an understandable occurrence,  the thing is, our mothers didn't seem... Continue Reading →

CRAZY Little Secret 

I am and have always been somewhat of a social chameleon.  That is to say, I adapt to the people and situations around me to fit in.  This is probably a result of being an only child; you know how we're desperate for attention and all.  Perhaps though many people are the same, and few...

Good or Poor Sport?

I'm an only child.  Growing up I had friends to play with and my mom always instilled in my the importance of sharing and playing fair.  We didn't have video games and hardly watched TV, so we played a lot of games. I can remember playing with my grandparents and how much I loved it.... Continue Reading →
