Some of the best cookbooks I own are the ones that churches compile. The problem is that you only have a couple of weeks to buy the cookbook and if you miss your chance, too bad, so sad. Well when I... Posted on 2/2/11 at 8:03 PM

It’s called the Sister Code. It is that unspoken, undocumented list of rules silently adopted by siblings who grew up under the same roof, fought over the same Foreigner records and raided each other’s closets.
Yes, we all have things from our younger years that we regret.
I certainly do.
My decision to take a data punch-card entry class in high school. My asymmetrical haircut phase during college. My slavish devotion to Whitesnake.
But the Granddaddy of All Questionable Youthful Choices may have been my decision to get a “glamour shot.”
When I go home to visit, I feel a bit like a slouch. I’m schlumping around the house with crazy-cat-lady hair and pajama pants at noon, while my mother can be found cooking breakfast at 8 a.m. in full makeup, a well-matched outfit and carefully coiffed hair.
This winter has been for the dogs. Actually, it’s been too cold for the dogs. Pet owners keep receiving warnings that the ice, rock salt, wind and marrow-freezing cold are simply too much for our domesticated pooches.
Everyone should have a friend like Penelope in their lives. When we first met in the early ’90s, we were both young, single women, just starting out in our professional lives. We reconnected a few years later, after realizing we’d both moved into the same building.
I recently spent a wonderful week in balmy Florida. Palm trees and sleeveless weather were such a welcome break after a winter of Polar Multiplexes in the Frozen North. I got to visit my sisters, eat at a few of my favorite restaurants and think of something besides frozen pipes and snow-shoveling.
I must look guilty. It never fails. Whenever I fly, I am always the one who is singled out for a little extra TSA TLC. My friends have several theories as to why this happens. “Ursula” says it’s because my hair is so large that the TSA thinks I may be smuggling something onto the plane.
I like my space.
Deep down, I’m really an introvert. I’m not a big fan of constant activity and noise. I don’t really like drop-in visitors. I like to eat when I want to and go to bed when I feel like it.
At long last, the Year of Living Painfully is over.
In fact, I kind of feel sorry for 2014. I have heaped so many expectations on it that it may not be able to live up to the hype. It’s kind of like the nice guy who follows on the heels of the bad boyfriend: “You not only need to prove yourself, 2014, you have to make up for that jerk, 2013!”
