Funny how I go to Whole Foods for one thing (milk) and come out with ten other things (including pumpkin pie, banana loaf, guacamole, etc.).  I  even made a point to eat before my trip.  Such is the marketing genius of the grocery store.

My first real attempt at alleviating some of my back pains–just purchased the Belly Bandit Support Belt (along with another tube of CD lipstick). Will update and provide a review once I get it.

Now that I’m settled in at WordPress.org (from WordPress.com), I’d like to make the following resolutions for this blog going forward:  (1)  More reviews (restaurants, hotels, and baby/mommy gear, etc.),  (2) More poems (this is a favorite, I know, for most of you and me),  and (3) More recipes/food ideas.
