Catching Up....and Revelations
Good morning. I'm going to start with the hard part. No matter how long I'm on this journey, there is always something to learn. No matter how far I come, no matter how much progress I make, there is still ME. That's the name of a book I just... Read more
Hello to all my faithful Sparkfriends! I am still here, just been crazy busy (I know you are all surprised to hear that!). Doing well - still dealing with some ridiculous personnel stuff at work, but they are so pleased with how I'm handling s... Read more
Long but Productive Monday
Got to the office before 7. Didn't leave until almost 6. But good day. My Team is starting to warm up to me - tough crowd because they've had several managers and they have fallen into some bad work habits. But I think they are starting to r... Read more
Happy Mother's Day!
Good day. Went shopping for groceries with Gary. Cooked bacon and eggs for breakfast. Worked about 5 hours. Organized my closet when I unpacked my luggage. Practiced keyboards about 45 minutes. Happy Mother's Day everyone!

A Hell of a Week....
I was at a conference this week in Wilmington. The conference was good, but I did not plan ahead well and I failed in my goals...epically. Actually binged... several times. I don't even remember the last time I binged, and I had recently talk... Read more
Worked 6 hours today but pleased with my project. Didn't have rehearsal as a band member has a sick mom (get well soon!). Cooked fried fish, asparagus and sweet potatoes with Gary Brenneman which turned out delicious! Enjoyed the beautiful... Read more

Exhausted. Worked 46.5 hours on my regular job, attended 1.5 days of training in Washington, DC, for my Federal contract (not counting travel time), packed for the yard sale last night, unloaded two loads of stuff for the yard sale at 5:30 am th... Read more
I Got the Runnin' On Empty Sittin' at the Airport with the Power Runnin' Out on My Laptop Blues..
LOL. If I had my guitar with me, I'd totally break into song. Trying to stay awake and do some work while on this layover in Charlotte, NC. Won't get to my hotel until after midnight tonight, then have to be up and ready to catch the shuttle ... Read more
And....Here We Go!
I have a Federal contract that I've had for some time as a child welfare expert reviewing the practice of State DSS agencies. Just after I started my new job, they culled the list of contractors and I made the cut! Then they scheduled training... Read more
Be Ye Perfect...ing!
So my lovely friend Vic was blogging yesterday about having an imperfect day. I totally get where she was coming from, but it set me to thinking. PERFECT. What exactly does that mean? So...I looked it up. "Perfect - having all the required ... Read more
Prayers and Positive Energy Requested
Hello, dear friends. I got a call from my oldest son tonight. He said that my daughter-in-law had some kind of irritation on her face. She went to the doctor and they said it was shingles. Due to that diagnosis, they did an ultrasound. Appa... Read more
Crazy Busy...but it's almost Friday!
Wow, work is nuts. Fortunately, I love my boss and the work. AND tomorrow is Friday! Plus I'm in love. My boyfriend is the best and makes me so happy. Oh, and I got a new keyboard in the mail for the new band! So excited!
A Donkey Story
I really like my new boss. She's a very direct, no frills kind of boss - the kind that used to terrify me because I have such a hard time with even constructive criticism. But she has learned me quickly, and I've seen her soften up just to help... Read more
Worked until 8:30. Tired. Still hanging tough....just tired. Hope you all had a great day.

Alright, so I'm looking at the scale - which is why I knew that I lost 3 pounds over the weekend. But I had read an SP article where recording your weight daily was helpful to someone else. So I'm making peace with the scale. I think it's fin... Read more
