In early October, I wrote a blog about my anchors. I kept adding to the list (which started out at about 12, I think) until I had two dozen things that in some way or another "hold me down." Here is the list:

I'm quite sure I have written this kind of thing and had these thoughts about commitment and stick-to-it-tive-ness, and how this SparkProgram I've been doing for 7 years would work if I actually DID it, rather than "doing" it. But maybe the fact... Read more
I just realized I never updated this blog: www.sparkpeople.com/mypa ge_public_journal_individu al.asp?blog_id=4218525
Probably because I forgot I had made such a blog entry. But I have a very old update! You should r... Read more
I'm copying and pasting a similar exercise from a couple years ago, but changing it up a little to recognize the changes in my lifestyle at this time (i.e., I don't really eat meat now).

and with a lot of other people, really. Tommy Shaw, for one. He is so hot. For reals.

This was written by a very thin girl. It's a great read about men who want skinny women, and a skinny woman. She talks about what all she has to do to rem... Read more
I just found out my oldest friend in the world is having bridesmaids. I assumed she wasn't, because of course, if she was, she would have asked me.
The friend I'd call to tell about this situation (my second oldest friend), I can't, because... Read more
