Busty: husband, partner, baby-daddy, friend.

There aren’t really words enough to articulate my thanks for Tony. As I type this he is out flushing the antifreeze from my undriveable-for-fear-of-that-clunking-noise car (reliable, what?). Oh, yeah, he also got up at 4am to go Black Friday shopping … Continue reading

My schedule: the best of both worlds?

This term (and continuing through the academic year) I am doing an internship (16 weekly hours), taking classes (7 credit hours) and being mom, wife, chef, chauffeur, house cleaner extraordinaire and hopefully person. This actually looks worse than it is … Continue reading

Clackamas Physical Conditioning.

File this under me being thankful for my health (and my ability–to see, to hear, to touch, taste, feel). And then add to that. I’m thankful for optimum health. I’m thankful for my fitness. I’m thankful for being comfortable in … Continue reading
