Back-To-School: Waking Up Early

Back-To-School: Waking Up Early

This summer, I got really used to sleeping in. I don’t mean college-years sleeping in until 11:00 or 12:00. I mean the adult version, getting up around 7:30 or 8:00. Which felt like sleeping in to me because for the nine months prior to summer, I had been getting up at 5:30 with my high...

One Step Away From Ugly

One Step Away From Ugly

Some days, I think I’m only one step away from ugly. Other days, two or three steps. See what I mean? If I drop a few of my beauty and fashion must-dos, and don’t “doll” myself up, I quickly age a few years or look like I’ve gained a few pounds. Or worse, look like...

Chunks Visits Her Gynecologist

This year’s outfit. I’m looking irascible. Yesterday was one of those days I dreaded and yet, in an odd, maybe mentally unhealthy way, looked forward to. It was my annual visit with my gynecologist: getting felt-up, having a pap smear and a rectal exam with a boob-squashing mammogram on the side. What’s not to like?...
