Onward and Upward...


Sorry for the radio silence.  Our lives took an unexpected turn when my husband's employer unexpectedly closed its doors two weeks ago and laid off about 300 people. Yes, the same employer that moved us from California all the way to Florida just four short months ago.

Dear Starbucks...


I consider myself to be a rather strong-willed person.  But all you'd need to do for me to give up government secrets is wave a grande chai latte from Starbucks in front of me.  It is my greatest weakness.  There is just something about the Tazo tea mixed with the mysterious syrup at Starbucks that makes their hot chai superior to anything else I've ever consumed.  Here's the only problem: Starbucks only offers two milk options for their lattes: cow dairy and soy. I'm lactose intolerant so don't drink cow milk and soy milk is something I think should be consumed in great moderation (here's why).  This leaves me in a Chai 22.
