I am not voting for Trump. And I think Hillary is a liar and I’m voting for her anyway. Also, I love Ivanka so much I can’t stop Googling to find more tidbits about her.

I am in a hotel room watching Melissa follow the rules for dating. She is sprawled out on the sofa reading while I brush my teeth with her toothbrush because I forgot mine.

Best way to stop emotional eating? Try emotional working.


My husband comes in the room. While I’m working. I say, “I’m doing a webinar about happiness.” [At first I was not going to put a link to the webinar here, because people do not talk in links, and I’m writing dialogue.
