Day 364 – One More Apple

One day to go. I can’t believe it. Only one apple left after tonight. It’s been a crazy few days and to be honest – I’m feeling exhausted. Between the event preparations of this last month, the travel and jet lag, and the early morning today to get ready for being at KPIX at 7:00 […]

Day 361 – Happy Apple Day!

Day 355 – Pulling Myself Together

“Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.” – Elizabeth Taylor Good plan. Will do! I’m headed to the mall to shop at Nordstrom’s Rack in the hopes of finding just the right outfit for my t.v. appearance. Oops – did I let that slip out? Yes indeedy folks – I […]

Day 354 – Fading

I faded a bit today. My body called for an unexpected time out. I could have pushed through but right now I’m on an endurance marathon and sprint to the last apple so – although my list is long and the details need to come together right now – I did what I usually don’t […]
