Hi! I Miss You.

Slacker Blogger Offers Apology

I have finally, FINALLY managed to find enough time in my week to cook new things. I haven’t yet managed to find time to post about these new things. Baby steps, people. I’m roughly 17% over capacity at this point, with no sign of things slowing down, which is terrible because I have a lot of things to say.

So, until then: hi! Hope you’re all doing well. Please enjoy this photo from a recent Team in Training run through the vineyards.

I will also ask very insightful questions, such as:

  • Why are hotels at or near Frankfurt Airport so frightfully expensive on October 7?
  • Why can’t the US credit card companies get their act together and issue me a chip and PIN card already?
  • Are KT Tape and Hoka One One shoes actually helping me or is this a pricey placebo?

I’ll discuss this and more when I can take a breath.

Miss you. All of you. No, really, I do.

 

 

My Second Fix

Last month, I talked about getting my first package, or “fix” from Stitch Fix. My second Fix arrived on Friday. What I Got I made detailed comments and notes after the first Fix, and my stylist, Ashley, made reference to them and my desire to have some new, non-wrinkle clothing for my upcoming business trip to Europe,…

“I Love My Kids, But…”

First let me apologize for being woefully behind on posting. This summer has kicked my butt, work-wise, and then the past three weekends involved a family getaway, a visit from my father and another trip to Seattle for the annual women’s fitness retreat that I attend each year. There’s been a distinct lack of time…

Oat Flour Yogurt Pancakes

Wheat-Free Oat Pancakes I should start by saying that we have no dietary issues with wheat. None of us are gluten free or have celiac symptoms. Nonetheless, it’s obvious that your standard batch of bleached all-purpose flour isn’t the most nutritionally dense food out there. That prompted me to do some research into flour alternatives…

My First Fix

A Review of Stitch Fix A few of my friends had tried Stitch Fix and raved about it, so I wanted to test it out for myself. It’s a service where they send you five items of clothing and/or accessories that work with your style, body type and wardrobe. The Idea I’m not much of…

A New Vehicle for Enchilada Sauce

Quinoa Enchilada Bake I love enchilada sauce. Possibly much more than normal people. So when my friend sent me this recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod, naturally I had to try it. In order to make it kid-friendly, I eliminated the jalapeños and added the spice at serving with an array of hot sauces….

Solo

All By Myself I had a very surreal experience last week. The Husband and The Assistant went back east to visit family and I was totally and completely on my own for seven whole days. Those without kids are reading this, shrugging and not understanding the significance. Those with kids are shouting Oh my god…
