Working While You’re Sick — How To Rally When You Have To

Posted by Sunday, November 13, 2016 0 2

It's that time of year again. Cold and flu season is upon us. And the Maas-Aronson household is not immune. Literally. Ethan is currently in the bedroom dying, and I'm on the living room couch binging Netflix, and not doing so hot myself. And once I'm done with this post I'm probably gonna down some ...

The Joys Of Being A Morning Person

Posted by Wednesday, November 2, 2016 0 0

Fact: I get up at least an hour earlier than I need to every morning. More often two hours. Sometimes three. I do this by choice, completely voluntarily. And I don’t do it because I’m super busy and need to do a million things before leaving for the office. I don’t have kids lunches to ...

9 Healthy, Delicious Foods I Ate On Whole30

Posted by Saturday, January 30, 2016 0 2

I’m currently frying bacon. A big cast iron skillet full of crispy, salty, fatty bacon. Don’t worry, it is Whole30 compliant bacon (as Ethan and I still have 9 days left on our program). But even if it is a Whole30 compliant protein, it is still not a food anyone would ever call healthy. So yes, ...

As we speak Ethan and I are doing the Whole30. We’re halfway through the 30-day program. The really, really hard 30-day program. Now, in a perfect world, Whole30 wouldn’t be hard.

Once upon a time there was a girl who grew up in Northern Virginia, the land of bumper to bumper traffic and something called the "beltway" that made driving both a necessity and a cause of great angst amongst its residents. The girl rode in cars most the time to get from place to place, as ...

I know I haven’t written in a while, and I apologize for that. But also, I don’t. The reason behind that being twofold: 1) I started work last Tuesday and I’ve kinda been busy with the whole new job, 9:00-6:00, daily grind thing 2) I’m exhausted and sleep deprived. Honestly, I can’t remember the last time ...

Posted by Monday, August 25, 2014 0 11

I promised you we were going to talk about health insurance eventually and I can think of no better time to discuss the matter than a Monday, the most exciting of all days. No, health insurance is not exciting, and neither are Mondays. But they are both necessary evils in life, so there we have a ...
