I turned 41 this weekend. F o u r t y – o n e.  Forty-one. FOURTY-ONE!!!  I’m forty-one.  Seriously… I really am forty-one.  Okay… phew… I feel better. I admit it.  I’m having a hard time getting older. Why? For one… I’m fatter.  I can’t just decide to not eat cheese for a week and walk [...]

Those glorious days when I could walk out of my apartment and within a 3 block radius I would have the option of Ethiopian Food, Mexican, Sushi, Italian wine bar or tapas.  Oh decisions decisions.
