Date Like A Grownup cover Date Like a Grownup: Anecdotes, Admissions of Guilt & Advice Between Friends examines the impact of loneliness and social obsolescence on men and women in their second single lives and provides punctuating proof that looking for love from a place of isolation is as unwise as grocery shopping on an empty stomach. Unlike many other relationship manuals, this book does not guide the reader through game-playing and winning temporary partners. Instead, readers will develop a personalized strategy for building a life foundation that facilitates growing a “right fit” relationship. Topics include: effective filtering, social media and online dating, how to avoid isolation and the strategic growth of a larger social network. Written with unique wit and affirming good humor, Date Like a Grownup employs engaging narratives such as “The Percocet Proposal” and “Need Meets Greed” to underline specific dating principles and demonstrate that none of us are immune to bad choices.

Stuffing Sandwiches Down My Shirt: Strategies and Inspiration for Crutch Users

Eight weeks on crutches with three kids and a DIY career? My first thought was, "I'll take Plan B." But my ankle reconstruction surgery was the Plan B. The only thing in my hands—besides the crutches—would be how I tackled the unexpected challenge.

An upbeat approach to one-footed living, this book contains practical ideas for maximizing the temporary challenges associated with a surgical recovery and a bit of inspiration on how to make post-op recovery a fulfilling and—dare I say, "Fun"?—experience. Gym workouts, grocery shopping, business networking and even dates stayed on my schedule. So, I locked myself out of the house three days after surgery and had a little trouble with escalators... remaining an active participant in my life helped me heal, recover and enjoy the journey.

Look for the Youtube videos for tips on working out on crutches!
