Remembering a Friend

Sunday, March 08, 2015      3 comments

Yesterday I went to the memorial service of a friend. She had kidney problems her whole life, and it eventually got her. Ginny was one of those people - not perfect, but sweet and loving most often. I remember her making me feel welcome an... Read more

Philosophy - reasons why I can

Saturday, March 07, 2015      5 comments

Today I want to say something about what I tell myself. There is a philosophy I got from a tape that I got from the Shad Helmstetter organization. It is "I'm always finding reasons why I can get something done, instead of finding reasons why I c... Read more

I have been spending time thinking about when I feel very sensitive (mostly at work), and how to keep from letting it get in my way. I, not unlike many others, want everyone to like me (actually I want everyone to adore me). This gets in m... Read more

Lots of things done, but not getting to the big picture things.

Monday, February 16, 2015      2 comments

It's been ages since I posted. This has been a busy weekend in a good way, but I am not getting anywhere with some of my big picture plans. With the weather being lots of cold and some snow, I have been eating too much, especially too many snack... Read more

New Year Cleanout

Saturday, January 03, 2015      7 comments

I've been in my kitchen, throwing out long expired food, ancient spices and cleaning the fridge and cabinets. Lots came out of the cabinets and fridge, yet they are still pretty full. Throwing out is a somewhat challenging task for me, my mother... Read more

How it went...

Friday, November 28, 2014      2 comments

In some ways it totally worked. Everyone chipped in, and we had more than enough food. I think there was more appreciation for the work that doing this is. I actually did a Turkey Trot 2.5 mile walk in the morning. I felt I had to because I had ... Read more

This year I asked everyone to pitch in and be more helpful by telling the men they had to cook. Typically they do nothing, and my DH's family is largely men. This year, with one pregnant and one recovering surgery, and it happening at my home, I... Read more

Today I Leave for Vacation

Wednesday, September 17, 2014      3 comments

I will be seeing family members and having fun. I got really lucky in the family lottery, my siblings are people I love and respect. My parents are deceased, and because their families were small I have only one uncle left and then six half-cous... Read more

Most Days are a Mixed Bag

Friday, August 01, 2014      1 comments

Today my plans were to take a 1/2 day off work today, so I could use 2 two tickets to see the Shadowbox lunch show. I had the idea that this would not be expensive because I already had the tickets - but between both our lunches and the parking,... Read more

New day, fresh start

Tuesday, July 22, 2014      3 comments

I've been struggling with food, and yesterday I hardly walked at all, getting in about 1/3 my steps (just incidental walking). There were doughnuts, cookies, fruit, and cake at work. Although I ate only 1/2 a doughnut, I also had a piece of cake... Read more

I got to walk with my buddy!

Sunday, July 06, 2014      1 comments

I am very happy I got to walk with my buddy today. I am afraid I may have talked her ear off! I am lucky, she's pretty forgiving about that kind of thing. It's been a while since we were able to walk together. It really is a highlight of th... Read more

A successful day

Monday, June 23, 2014      2 comments

I tracked all my food, I walked, exceeded my steps goal (14295!), did a little weight workout, drank my water and I still can get to bed at a reasonable hour. At work I made progress on an old thing that's been bugging me that I haven't worked o... Read more

walking commitment

Sunday, June 22, 2014      5 comments

Well today I did not let excuses and changes of plans derail my walking commitment. I made it to 10,314 steps today! I also did some chores and some sewing. I wanted to dance, but with the spasm and my chronic knee issue, I just knew I had ... Read more

Back Spasms

Wednesday, June 18, 2014      1 comments

This morning before work my back started to spasm. This is my first time, and is very painful and scary. I took a couple of tylenol and a prescription anti-inflammatory, and headed off to work. While at work I called a masseuse and got an appoin... Read more

Green monster

Monday, June 16, 2014      1 comments

I find myself feeling jealous a lot. I am all over the map with this - I am jealous even in situations where the other person clearly does not have it "better" than me. That is, whatever they have that's different and good, but I never take into... Read more
