Don’t ya hate it when you have something for dinner that was loaded with hidden sodium, but you didn’t realize it at the time, so you find yourself chugging water hours afterward, and it makes you so bloated and waterlogged that you can’t slosh off to bed even though you really want to?

But, look! My dear darling hubby came through for me again and posted (in moments, mind you) the picture I struggled to post for, oh, half an hour or so last night. You ladies can keep your football jocks and stud muffins…I’ll take my sweet computer geek over them any day!


I’m starting a Blog!
