A Hello (and an Apology)
Two months to the day since I last blogged and I find myself in an odd space.
I find myself looking at SparkPeople and seeing so many new faces on the teams I'd been on (Hello there!)

Well, I've done a lot of thinking and planning the last few days.
I've ... Read more

Day 407: Catharsis
Preface: I'm not looking for a lot of cheering on for this blog. I just want to vent. Believe me, this blog is more cathartic than.. update-y. I have sat debating for a while if I ought to share this post with people on Facebook as well. I'm not... Read more
Day 406 - Busy, Busy Bee
Well, the title of my blog is misleading. I'm busy, just not at work.
I hate weeks like this. I especially hate them in my current condition. Firstly, I don't have any billable work to do. That means that I'm doing a lot of reading and res... Read more
Day 401: ALL the bad habits!
Good morning everyone!
What can I say, blogging once a week is about all I can tolerate at this instant. I'm killing myself at work trying to put in as much overtime as possible to accrue vacation time so as not to be forced into taking Dra... Read more

Day 371: Time for a Reckoning
This morning absolutely sucked.
I got on the scale. 186.8. That is 5.8lbs up in a week and a half. Some of it has to be due to the antibiotics and steroids as well as water retention at this time of the month. Still, I'm certain more than ... Read more
