I just wanted to tell you I love your blog. I found it via The Happiness Project, which I read religiously. I can totally relate to what you're going through, even though our situations are different. I am married, but I was also married once before and my first husband died very suddenly at age 32. We were trying to have children and I had actually just gotten pregnant and quickly had a miscarriage about two months before he died. Now here I am at 37 (38 next month) trying again, which I didn't think I'd be able to do. I'm writing this to assure you that you never freakin know where life will take you, and I'm really rooting for you. Keep writing!

Can you imagine a world without sugar...I would not like that world. I think with everything good or too good, moderation is the key and not total abstinence.

I noticed the older I get, the more sensitive I become to sugar and caffeine... is it true for you too?

Are you only avoiding sugar in sweets and coffee/tea, or are you also reducing bread and pasta too?

It is utterly amazing how good fruit tastes when you don't eat sugar. Cherries and peaches from the farmer's market...mmmmm...

Lisa, I'm rooting for you, too! Good luck-- and you're so right. Life never lets us get bored, does it? After all you've been through, I hope it's time for some serious joy!

Mary-- I'm definitely more sensitive to caffeine these days. I'm trying to avoid sugar in general... but I'm discovering how difficult that is! I started to eat some peanut butter yesterday, but when I looked at the jar there was sugar in my peanut butter. Ugh. I'm reducing bread, and I don't eat much pasta. We'll see how it goes!

My Books (with Elizabeth Craft)

  • 'Bass Ackwards and Belly Up' and 'Footfree and Fancyloose' tell the story of four best friends who commit the ultimate suburban sin: putting off college to pursue their dreams.

    Publisher's Weekly said: "Full of romance and adventure, laughter and tears, the story is a reminder that veering from the straight and narrow road doesn't always lead to a dead end."

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
