  • Aaaaannnnnd... I'm back. Again. and Again.

    7/6/2015 2:23:26 AM, by MYAGRAVES

    Lost my mom in February, one month after the new job. Then the job changed and I ended up spending more time in traffic therefore less time at home. And I am getting more time with my husband's daughter, who will be 3 in September. We joined a gym, but haven't really made a firm commitment. A frie... Read more

It was around 75 degrees almost all d... Read more

    I saw this quote somewhere and it stuck with me today. I can remember spending days on the couch, watching people have a life T.V. and not leaving my apartment.

The Sealed Air Corporation (first made in 1957) have taken away the pop and instead the air will shift around in columns of bubbles--that you can't pop. Welcome to the dystopian future. Fun fact: I kept a piece of the stuff in my desk at work--it w... Read more

    Yesterday, I didn't expect to work, so I was lounging in bed trying to decide if I was ready to get up when my phone rang. It was the department manager for my PTA job asking if I could come in to work. I told him that I would shower and be right in. So, I got my first day seeing patients on my o... Read more

  • Mamma is still watching

    7/3/2015 5:46:08 AM, by JSTETSER

    In my mind's eye, I always see my 93 year-young mother watching and waiting for me. I am now my mother's mother, caring for her and listening intently to her stories, and there are moments that I forget. She is the one who listened to stories all of my stories. She has a lifetime of stories s... Read more

    7/2/2015 11:42:33 PM, by SKYGIRL21

In the end my weight was up 2 pounds overall, but I got my spark people account up and I am tracking whenever the internet works. I am getting more exercise. And most of all I just feel better about the whole thing. ... Read more

I got a kindle so I could order my books on that and not buy actual, physical books, since I am pretty much out of shelf space, and ou... Read more

It's the same ones we grilled on Monday. Lemme just say... these things are AWESOME. They gave the best flavor to the sauce... Read more
