Rental Rehab

No matter how many places you have lived, you always remember your first apartment. I got my first digs back in 1996.  I was totally into sunflower print, and really cheesy slipcovers that didn’t look anything like the picture on the package. The walls were that awkward white you only find in apartments, but I had … Continue reading Rental Rehab

Caution: Friend Zone

I married my husband Albert 4 years ago and people often ask how we met.  It’s not a romantic story, but it usually gets a little chuckle.  We both referee basketball and were working at the same gym one night.  Our courts were next to each other, and Albert came over during halftime of one … Continue reading Caution: Friend Zone

Run Like a Champion Pt. 2

In last week’s post,  I was reminiscing how I ran the 400 meters on my high school track team.  It’s ironic that my coach placed me in such a difficult race, because I don’t really like to run.  I love basketball, but track had a social aspect that I really enjoyed; by social I mean … Continue reading Run Like a Champion Pt. 2
