Angry little swedish fish

closed I was feeling sorry for myself because I closed my computer on work stuff and looked at the clock to see it’s 4 in the afternoon. It’s Sunday and I’ve been working all day. I shouldn’t complain. There are so many people who can’t find work and I’m complaining because I have too much […]

hey helen

After a summer of house arrest with no car, I realize how lazy I really am. I’m back for my fourth season working full time at a ski mountain and it’s simply exhausting to go to an office. I don’t know how you people do it. In the summer, I walk downstairs, make some coffee, […]

Here fishy fishy

sunrise This week has been a bit of a whirlwind and I have to admit I haven’t done anything to slow it down. After the Reach the Beach relay, Groom bundled me into the car and brought me to his parents’ house in southern Massachusetts where I slept for something like 13 hours. He then […]

The amazing race

race start, the pretty girl in front with the bib ran the first leg I just had one of the most amazing weekends. I’m going to try to stay on track here (you’ll see, that’s a play on words, heh) but as I’ve stated before, I don’t edit these posts–mostly because it keeps me honest […]

Reach the Beach

I’ll admit I hold myself to some pretty low standards when it comes to exercise, but nothing makes me feel both inspired and disgusting quite like watching a dozen women between the ages of early 30s to early 40s embark on a 24-hour relay race. Because I like to cheer people on while simultaneously feeling […]

Pretty good day

It doesn’t matter how sick you are, how lazy you are, how tired you are. When you have a dog, you have to get outside and give your little friend some exercise. Yesterday, I was feeling pretty good. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good. Groom was here, mostly because I was feeling so rotten Sunday after […]

Not on a boat

I’m supposed to be sailing right now. For the past few weeks, I’ve had it in the back of my mind: “you can get through this deadline, you can get through this dinner, you can get through this day because you’re going sailing in September.” I was going to spend four days on my friend […]


I haven’t had a sip of alcohol since this stupid pneumonia hit me. What’s that…10 days now? I don’t really want a cocktail either, which is good because I still can’t do much more than walk from the couch to the kitchen. I don’t need those empty calories. But, you know how I know I’m […]

Quick recap

Just checking in, I guess. I’m still on the road to recovery. Groom bundled me into the car yesterday and drove me to Popham Beach to sit in the warm tropical storm breeze and watch the storm surf gettin’ all crazy. I would have taken a picture, but I was winded by the time we […]
