Sunday Morning 7:42

Sunday, November 09, 2014      5 comments

Good morning, sweet friends - I just finished my normal banana-and-coffee breakfast, as I listen to Sarah Jarosz, the most remarkable young musician/singer/songwriter. It doesn't matter what time of day I listen to her -- I am happy and re... Read more

Gotta share. I was covering a cafe break at JT2 tonight, and was chatting with a customer about the seasonal sweets (none of which I eat, and all of which are tempting). The customer asked me how I stay so thin working around all the goodi... Read more

Bad Girl

Saturday, October 04, 2014      7 comments

I haven't checked in for days because the internet has been sketchy at the house and I've been too busy at work. That being said, I think about my SPals every day, and hope that all of you are having a healthy week. We are going to Alb... Read more

The Week that Was

Sunday, September 14, 2014      5 comments

Sunday 9:06 am, and I've been up since crackodawn, as Santana woke me up to take her out to tinkle. Good dog. Better than peeing on the rug. Bad dog. Yesterday we went to watch my cousin race at Laguna Seca. Although I grew up within a ... Read more

Runnin to Rhiannon

Sunday, September 07, 2014      5 comments

I got lots of steps in at J#2 today. We had a lovely evening with our ABQ friend's heart-daughter, and, after she left, I synced Sparky with my Start page and saw that I had about 600 steps to go to hit 10K, so I grabbed the mini tramp, cranked... Read more

Well. This is what happens when I don't track during a BAD WEEK

Friday, September 05, 2014      7 comments

Up 2 pounds. I'll have it off by the weekend. I've been away from the office for most of the week, on business, eating out, or eating nothing then "making up for it" at dinner. Add to this the ongoing work drama, and I've had a bad week. ... Read more

Goals Set

Monday, September 01, 2014      6 comments

Dee sets goals all the time. So, I'll go public with mine. Accountability IS. 1) Mini-tramp 5/7 dpw 2) 1 chocolate treat per day (more realistic than my no chocolate, as my husband has been bringing Hershey into the house, and we sp... Read more

23 minutes

Monday, September 01, 2014      6 comments

Yesterday I jogged on the mini-tramp for 23 minutes, listening to rocknroll (Jethro Tull). This morning, I mini-tramped to David Bowie, and stopped after the 5th song -- 23 minutes. Huh! 23 is my son's birthdate. 23 is Jose Uribe's jersey nu... Read more

September Song

Sunday, August 31, 2014      7 comments

I am going to forget about August -- except for the wonderful things! 1) 5 fun days in Ashland with our friends. 2) Santana is a wonderful part of our lives. Bailey is happy. Husband is happy. Mali is not happy. 3) Weight is stabl... Read more

The letter that begins the titles of books eaten by Santana today. Harry Potter and History of Love. Dr appointment highlights: 1) she thinks that my weight is fine, and that if I get down to 130, I'll look gaunt. She agrees that 135 +/... Read more

We don't currently have one. Hi, Spark Pals -- The Girl came home July 16, and left for Sacramento to stay with The Newlyweds while she's trying to get a job. Or sweet friend who moved to ABQ came back oh, don't remember, sometime aro... Read more

Stress Update

Saturday, July 26, 2014      7 comments

I'm working 12-hour-plus days (even without J#2), so I haven't had much time to Sparkabout, but know I'm thinking about you all. Thanks for relaxation music, notes, comments. I appreciate it! Still 1 1/2 pounds from goal, so I haven't "lost ... Read more

living in the dark

Saturday, July 19, 2014      10 comments

We got back from our trip on June 15, and it's been dark since I walked into the office on the 16th. My legal assistant (I had a descriptor here, but Spark wouldn't let me post my blog with it, so fill in your own blank here) started in on how ... Read more

There's no place like home

Friday, June 20, 2014      7 comments

This week has been totally putrid at work. Got back from vacation and got hit upside the head with more of the same from the staff, who just will not settle in and let my new business partner settle in. Then it went downhill. TGIF... Read more
