No Joke

It is entirely coincidental that this long-overdue blog post is appearing on the first of April. “Jen! Are YOU doing BEDA?” No, gentle reader, I’m not quite crazy enough to declare myself a BEDA participant on a whim. Working fourteen-hour days and then having to blog at 11pm just might break me. Fortunately, fearless leader […]

WrAnyMo WrApUp

I’ve developed this habit of starting drafts and forgetting about them for a week or two, possibly a carryover of blogging privately. Oops. Here’s a slightly dusty post from Dec 2nd.

Both human and canine looked rather pleased with the arrangement (biped laboring, beagle relaxing). This was moment […]

Photos Up

I finally put up a few photos from vacation. It occurs to me that they are all of buildings and scenery. Russ and I don’t appear in any of them. If pressed, I suppose we have no real photo evidence that we were there at all. Too bad, I got a cute hair cut before leaving, […]

Laugh More

According to a recent study, psychological distress and severe life events may increase one’s risk of breast cancer. Young women who were exposed to a number of life events, should be considered as a risk group for [breast cancer] and treated accordingly. The good news? On the other hand, general feelings of happiness and optimism […]
