School started for me last Tuesday. Right now, it's all just meetings and professional development, which is fine. We have family conferences on the 8th and 9th, then kids come on the 12th.
I spent this summer working on me. I went to ... Read more
My gym offers everything you can possibly imagine. Everything from a bazillion classes all day long to a medispa where you can get botox if you want it.
I don't really have a use for botox, but I did take advantage of one of their "tests" ... Read more
I have three days with kids left. One with parents. And one to pack up my room and make it easy for the custodian to move my crap and clean my room this summer.
And I joined a gym. I know SP says you don't need a gym. I know that ther... Read more

I came across this quote this morning and I think it encompasses what I really need to hear sometimes. I ... Read more
Sisyphus...a modern tale
Sisyphus was "condemned to an eternity at hard labor. And frustrating labor at that. For his assignment was to roll a great boulder to the top of a hill. Only every time Sisyphus, by the greatest of exertion and toil, attained the summit, the da... Read more
I've been on spring break this week, and have spent most of it patiently waiting.
I waited for Brad to come by before he left for Argentina on a fishing trip for 8 days (he actually left today, but we kept hoping there would be time togethe... Read more
Relax and Restore
We have a donation-based yoga studio in town that I love. I saw on FB last week that one of the instructors was going to be doing a relax and restore workshop yesterday. I signed up and, despite nasty weather, went.

It's been a long, trying week.
After my last blog post, I went to my director to figure out a solution and we MAY have one. It will inconvenience a couple people, but they don't feel I am worthy of being asked to present about anything a... Read more
Just when you think...
that things are finally falling into place...
I spent most of the weekend working. I will admit to taking Sunday off and not getting out of my pajamas, not leaving the house, and having a good, old-fashioned sob-fest with West Wing via Net... Read more
Well, here are the good things:
1. I am eating well. I cooked, and I haven't had anything fast foodie on the way home at night. This weekend, I will cook pork chops and potatoes and chicken with mushrooms to have on hand for meals, and may... Read more
The scale is still screwed up. Today, it said I weighed anywhere from 193 - 207 pounds. I checked the old-fashioned kind, and I am still at 185, so we'll go with that. I didn't do anything to EARN a lost pound this week, though I did eat well... Read more
Progress...or something like it.
Seems like I named a post this before...
I sobbed a friend about my huge increase in weight this week and she asked what kind of scale I was using.
I have a digital, spendy kind!
She suggested two things.

I stepped on the scale yesterday to weigh in for the diet bet. Up 4 pounds.
Today, I stepped on the scale just to see if there was a change. and there was. Up another 5 pounds.
HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? 9 pounds in a week?

Started off well enough.
Got up at 5, showered and ready to go by 6, had leftover breakfast casserole, made a salad to take with me, stopped for a coffee, and headed in.
I worked steadily until almost 1 with very few interruptions, s... Read more
Need to vent....and a worry.
I mentioned to my mother this morning on IM that I needed to get up and run, make something to eat, and had a few errands to run before I take her to the doctor. Just conversation, you know? Her response?
"What for? You don't need any of t... Read more
