Coffee State of Mind

This morning I feel about 50% better than I did yesterday. I actually got out of bed when I woke up at 7:30 am on my own, no alarm. All week I have been lying in bed until 10, 11, or even 12 before I would try to […]

Rocking the Vicks Vapo-Rub

This week is Frye Festival in Moncton. The line-up is really good this year and I had hoped I would find the money to go when the time came, but that didn’t happen. And especially where I’m going to do the WFNB’s WordSpring this year, I certainly couldn’t […]

WTF?! Up Another Almost Pound

Well I’m definitely bloating up over something because that little Wii Fit board dude says I am up another 0.9 pound again today. It sounds like he’s saying Ow! when he weighs me, like the continuous gain is physically hurting him. Perhaps it is … maybe I am […]
