I've still not gained anything, but my clothes are beginning to fit . . . differently around my hips. It's not a monumental shift, but it's noticeable - to me. Let's just say elastic is my friend these days.
I'm so sorry. This whole situation with my Dad has been awful and I've been in similar situations with my Mom several times in the past (she has several chronic illnesses) so I know first-hand how hard it is to not be able to be there with the person you love. My Mom was hospitalized about a year-and-a-half ago and I was in the middle of closing statements when it happened - so there was absolutely no way I could get to her. It was probably the most nerve wracking week of...

I wouldn't have a marketable skill if I hadn't gone to law school - its hard to be hired to argue without a law degree, so it was pretty much my only hope of being able to support myself. ETA: Oh, and I also would totally eat at Dicks Last Resort. Which would be even better, in my humble opinion, if it were actually a resort - messy looking (but exceptionally clean, despite someone's first glance) rooms. Super small, no extra towels, only one person at the front desk who...
More . . . I'm banned from a certain fancy hotel in Paris for . . . um, getting busy in a stalled elevator. I'm an avid fan of the Dewey Decimal system - so much so that I'm planning to organize all of my books by it - I even found a small, vintage card catalog at a flea market that I'm totally going to fix up and use as it was meant to be used. I chose academia (studying English and Economics in college) over going to Juilliard to study piano. And . . . I've only...

I stayed overnight in a different hospital with a friend on Monday after he had a heart attack, my Mom had back surgery last year and I slept in a reclining chair for three days after that, and many more. It's what I do. I'm a full believer that everyone - no matter how old they are -...
