Like the Rainman, for years I bought my underwear at Kmart. There was just something anonymous about sliding them down the checkout hidden in between the Sauve shampoo and Scotts Weed N Feed. The 17 year old clerk working his after school job ce... Read more

I've caught the flu blog
Sunday, September 13, 2009      4 comments

It's ironic. I'm a nurse in a busy ob/gyn clinic of 8 physicians and they decided to appointment me the official "Flu Czar" for this season. It was one of those cheery "this is what you are going to do" things, no asking involved. Oh well, like ... Read more

Today I made up my mind not to a slave to the scale. I'm used to weighing daily at the Y where I work out but It can be as frustrating as it is motivating. I'm tired of letting the scale dictate my mood. I'm just going to keep exercising and try... Read more
