Post Vacation
Thursday, September 21, 2017      1 comments

I had to have my travel agent cancel my cruise -- the cruise line didn't cancel it, they only postponed it from Saturday to Tuesday, with a stop in Cozumel instead of the Caribbean. Because they postponed it, and we canceled, they only gave... Read more
Anxiety
Tuesday, September 05, 2017      3 comments

I am an anxious mess. I hide it well, but I can feel it. It's like what it would feel like to put your hand into an empty can and have somebody dump earthworms into it. Two years ago, after my not-so-celebrated melt down, my psychiatri... Read more
Grown-up 101
Saturday, September 02, 2017      1 comments

I don't like Grown-up 101, but I can't drop this class, and I don't seem to be ready to graduate from it either. You know, the daily "off to work," followed by "Yay! Weekend," during which there's grocery shopping, errands, laundry.... fore... Read more
Every Little Thing

Having some OCD tendencies, I try not to not sweat the small stuff, although in my job, I have to pay attention to details. Even so, everyday I learn a little more about how to shrug my shoulders and let it go: I can't fix everything, I can't ju... Read more

Wednesday, August 30, 2017      3 comments

I've been away from SparkPeople for too long a time and I've let myself go. From a low of 219#, I let myself gain 30 back, and oh my goodness, I feel every pound of it. I am one year in with my replacement hip, for which I am eternall... Read more

October, and the Changes It Brings
Thursday, October 06, 2016      3 comments

I feel like I've fallen off the face of the world, because I haven't been logging on to SparkPeople. I've been busy, I've been mending. I've been ... redefining... myself. On August 30th, I had total hip replacement surgery on my right side... Read more
The Big Four-Oh
Sunday, January 10, 2016      1 comments

Focusing on What Matters

Patience is not my best attribute. Since July 20th, weight-wise, I'm down 25 pounds, which I'm pretty happy with. (because it should be *more!!... Read more
Learning to Crawl

My life has changed. Since melting down in July, I've had a cortisone injection in my arthritic hip that has helped, but not as much I'd hoped;... Read more

Life has become complicated. Where I once didn't take any medicines except for the occasional over-the-counter pain killer, I now take two pres... Read more
