I was at a wedding on the 19th, actually in the buffet line at the reception, when it dawned on me. I had not eaten any meat since Wednesday night’s dinner. This was definitely not intentional up to that point. I did, though, intentionally eat only the veggie lasagna as an entrée that night. Truthfully, I had… Continue reading Do You Eat Meat?
A friend told several of us that she was nursing her child for the last time and it was a bittersweet feeling. Strangely, I remember the feeling and my “baby” is 15 years old. My thoughts did not necessarily turn to the last time I nursed that baby but more to the twins. With the… Continue reading The Last Time
With a quick nod to Momalom.com and to Bad Mommy Moments, I wanted to post photos from Friday’s Happy Hour at Chapter House in Ithaca. I frequently head over to this bar on Fridays to hang out with friends and meet new people. I will say that yesterday the bar area was seriously packed when… Continue reading Friday Fun
I am not a short distance runner. I just about mile two or so am getting into a groove. I like the longer distances. I love my seven or eight mile training runs. I do not particularly like a 5K race. I have, though – as of last night, run three of them. My first… Continue reading Red Dress Race – A 5K Recap
I just ran my fifth race this year. While I never imagined I would be a racer, or a runner for that matter, I am and I love it.

This year was its 40th running, making it the oldest road race in Broome County. To celebrate, Kathrine Switzer came back… Continue reading Vestal XX – Race Recap

Everyone says you should buy organic. While I think a lot of organic foods are good, I say you should buy local before worrying about organic. A lot of local foods are organic also. Then, I hear the argument that people on tight budgets cannot afford organic produce. I do understand this issue. Trust me! … Continue reading Organic or Not?
Do you have a favorite peanut butter? I have to be honest and say that at points in my life PB was not a priority. I would just buy whatever was cheapest. I no longer think this way. Now, I look for more in my PB. The other day I was wondering the aisles at… Continue reading Peanut Butter Preference?
Today is June 14th. In my current household, that means that my youngest has a Spanish final this afternoon and doesn’t have to be in to school until then. My 19 year old has his first day of work after completing a 40 hour training course last week. Busy day! In the past, when the… Continue reading Flag Day
