Got resolutions?

I’ve got RID-solutions!


Good luck!

Happy New Year: 7 Things I Learned in 2014

26 Dec


Whoosh! Another year has passed like a kidney stone.

Happy New Year!


7 Things I Learned in 2014:

We live. We learn. I feel your pain.

  1. If your hair is falling out, go to the doctor.
  2. Don’t ink and drive. Put the Post-it notes away!
  3. If done wrong, yoga can hurt you more than crocodile wrestling.
  4. The holidays can give you a hangover comparable to one from a Jacuzzi full of vodka martinis.
  5. Don’t bite down on ice, ginger chews, or errant popcorn kernels unless you crave intimate time with your gabby dentist.
  6. The more you do… the more that needs to be done. (Fig Newton’s Law of Momentum)
  7. With age comes perks. I personally delight in my cackle*
    *a raucous laugh resembling the cry of a hen or goose.

 New Year’s Tip: Keep Calm & Cackle On!

Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas
