Sick at Christmas: A Guide to a Good Enough Holiday


We all know Christmas is tricky. We put pressure on ourselves and our loved ones to somehow make this one day of the year perfect, and we feel like failures if it isn’t. And it happens every year, so we think we should learn from our mistakes and do it better next year. But it […]

My Uterus Hurts: is it just bad cramps? Ovarian cysts? Cancer? No! It’s a Polyp. Ick.


I’m going in for a Hysteroscopy, D & C,  polypectomy procedure on Monday. Huh? I know, right? My uterus has been complaining and interrupting my life for years, but I thought all the weirdness was a normal part of getting older. It turns out it’s not. I’ve got a polyp in there that’s almost as big as the […]

The Internets Have Voted: @juliejulie Must Dye Her Hair!

The Day I Found Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss, Unlimited


The minute I walked into the corporate offices of Luna and Larry’s, I knew something good was going to happen. The lovely old house near the University of Oregon Campus in Eugene is painted in calm greens and creams, like a delicious, ripe pistachio nut. I walked in the door and saw Sue, The Accountessa of numbers […]

Cooking with Elvis: New Ways with Chicken, Please!


I’m in a cooking rut. Food is getting boring, which just seems awful to say out loud, since I live in a place that surely has the most delicious, healthy, natural food options per person in the country, and I’m a mere mile a way from an Albertson’s grocery store that has cheap, organic produce […]

Eugene Women’s Half Marathon


I thought about running in the inaugural Eugene Women’s Half Marathon this year, for about 20 seconds, then decided not to, because I knew I wasn’t ready to attempt 13.1 miles without crying or getting hurt. But I did go down the night before to hang out with Sarah Bowen Shea of Run Like a […]

Running in the Dark


My running partner, Joanna, likes to run in the dark. I’m usually busy with dinner and kids and Twitter and stuff by the time dusk rolls around, but sometimes she convinces me to go with her. She says it’s easier to run at night, because you forget about the distance up ahead, and concentrate on […]
