Why Goddess Created Women
Borrowed from MaryAlice on the UU team with some modification.
10. Goddess worried that Adam would always be lost in the garden because men hate to ask for directions.

My June goal...not so much
I set June as the month I would tame the monster that is my closet. It has a nasty habit of swallowing everything within reach of its maw. I frequently have to rescue the cat from its bowels, and that's not a pretty image. So here is how I di... Read more
SP website run by Zuckerberg?
Change is not inevitable. Why change what works and what people are comfortable with? The Facebook change to that insipid Timeline was the last straw for me. My cover picture simply says, "I Hate Timeline" in bold, clashing colors. I can't s... Read more
Respect...There's an App for That
Posted with source duly cited.
One of my friends shared this on Facebook, and I related the following story: In the *old* days when we still had those ugly black phon... Read more
On Today's Daily Spark: Do Not Expect Perfection
Wow, that blog plucked a very raw nerve for me, because the blogger could have been writing about my life: good girl, straight A's, too uncoordinated for sports, afraid to try anything that could result in failure. What surfaced, along with te... Read more
Goal and Beyond

How Big Am I?
The better question is this: What size do I wear?
Today I have on my one pair of jeans that I bought at Macy's a few pounds ago. They're the stretchy, forgiving type, and they're size 14. 14?! WTH? Earlier this week I was wearing a pai... Read more
Rant blog: High-efficiency washers aren't
Finally getting to my rant about front-loading, so-called "high-efficiency" washers. We bought one last fall when the 22-year old top-loading washer finally gave up the ghost. The first thing we noticed was that all those great pictures of the... Read more
Thanks, Mom, from Dairy Queen to Global Volksmarching
Wendy Bumgardner, who hosts the website walking.about.com, posted a question to Facebook this morning asking about walking mom memories. Instantly, I thought of walking to Dairy Queen with my mother and brother on hot summer evenings in Kansas.... Read more
Excuse me, I don't think we've met....
I went to a retirement luncheon yesterday and ended up sitting next to a colleague I've worked several projects with over the years...not closely, but we did work together. Even though I had acknowledged him when he sat down late at the luncheo... Read more
Restaurants Trying to Appeal to Us
Lately you may have noticed some of the ads on SparkPeople are from places you wouldn't expect a health-oriented site to want as sponsors. Places like Cheesecake Factory and Dunkin Donuts. I was actually a little angry when I started seeing Ch... Read more
April numbers are in, and they're not pretty
Doing my Flybaby best not to procrastinate this month, so I didn't want to put off the dismal task of tallying up the April numbers. I'll start off with the successes: I continue to do well with water and meditation goals. As mentioned last m... Read more
End of April, Still Thinking About March
Cannot believe it's already April 30, and I never looked at the March numbers (sorry, Lianne), so this is just a quick look back. What I did well: water, meditation. Other goals:
- 10,000 steps 7X/week: zero weeks. Best: 5X (twice). Wor... Read more
Bye-bye mind clutter...the forgiveness project continues
I've read some very insightful blogs this morning that have me thinking about all the things I do...and do...and do...that save me from having to look inside myself at ugly things I've done or said in the past. If anyone watches GCB, I feel lik... Read more
