An All New Me


The other night I awoke from a dream.

The kind of dream that propels you to make changes (and not just to your shorts).

LIFE changes.

Upon re-entry, I felt re-newed, refreshed, and refocused (just REEEEE’d in general).

The day began with a commitment to…

Spend more time focused on cardio-based exercise and less on what lululemon combo I will wear.

Eating more brightly colored veggies more often.

Upping my ‘Volunteer’ game.

Calling my mother more often.

Being more ‘available’ to friends and family.

Wearing sensible shoes.

Only drinking wine with dinner.

Quitting smoking.

Laying out my husband’s clothes.

Sending my children more money with no questions asked.

Saying ‘Yes’ to every cock-a-mamie request from, clearly,very desperate people.

Voting for whomever looks the best.

Picking up highway trash because I believe real change starts with the power of ‘One’.

Cooking my way through Craig Claiborne’s The New York Times Cookbook.

Presenting the aforementioned epicurean delights while wearing only an apron.

Reading War and Peace.

And since none of that shit is going to happen, I choose to, instead, re-invent this blog with the help of Julie at Fabulous Blogging.

I think the day ended better, don’t you?



He’s looking up at me.
