Wednesday, October 11, 2017, was a big day.  I woke up early and had breakfast with my roomates, hopped in the shower and got ready for what will definitely be on the Huge Life Events checklist.  I chose my favorite pink sweater with s...

Okay. So here's the body episode.  Because, Lordy, things are a changing and feeling all kinds of squishy and tender and water buffalo-like. Before I start, let me say, that I am ok with it.  I know that it is all for a purpose and the...
