So where do we begin?

There's an album called, "A Pleasant Shade of Gray" by the band Fates Warning. It's one of my favorites, certainly among a top 20 all time on my list, and possibly in the top 10 (that's an exercise I haven't undertaken in a long time). I love it... Read more
Suppose I could edit that last one...but...

Feel like that thought should stand alone (even if it was prefaced by other stuff). Oh well. Point I think I was going to make is that the end of a year, which certainly had high points (the aforementioned nephew being highest among them), ... Read more

The fun thing about this blog thing is that they don't all have to be gems. I'm not writing for you, this is all about me, meee, meeeeee! And about me feeling like me wants to share me thoughts often enough so me keeps caring to check in to this... Read more
Who needs sleep, tell me what that's for?

I might have thought coming back from the Eastern Time Zone back into the Central would have made it easier for me to fall asleep at an acceptable time, but no dice. I got back to Madison at about 5 PM, after 7 hrs driving (including food break,... Read more

This is a first for me, creating a blog post on a phone. A bit surprised I haven't tried it in the two months I've had the phone. The novelty of it has somehow driven out the thoughts that led me to see if I could even do it. In part, though, t... Read more
I read a book tonight!
Thursday, December 15, 2011      1 comments

Not that that's particularly earthshaking...but it's something I haven't done in a long time, just settling down with a book, and reading for hours on end. In a way, I cheated, in that it's one of my favorite books, "Red Sky at Morning", by Paul... Read more
Too many thoughts
Tuesday, December 06, 2011      4 comments

One thing I dislike about social media is the feeling that I can't just serially post the thinks that are rattling around my skull at any given time. As if each lucid piece of brilliance (hah!) must be given time to be fully appreciated by an au... Read more

So Thanksgiving weekend, I forgot, deliberately, to pay attention to anything. Had fun, ate and drank a bunch, went to a Badger football game as if I were half my age...went into the student section, acting more like an undergrad than even when ... Read more
Goal #1 reached...just in time for Thanksgiving? Yikes!

The ten pound first goal I'd set for losing has shown up on the scale three days in a row. Scale checking obsession aside, I'm calling it official...and I'm also not setting a new goal quite yet, since the next three days of holiday festivities ... Read more
Mess of a site
Tuesday, November 22, 2011      4 comments

I'm really frustrated in navigating the Spark People site because useful, and relevant links/information are not organized particularly well. You'd think there would be a easy way to post a blog, prominently featured on the communities > blogs p... Read more
Amazing what a difference a week can make
Monday, November 14, 2011      3 comments

And not necessarily in a good sense. That first blog post, at the six week mark, was done just after going to the gym, in an optimistic mood. 8 days later, I haven't made it back, although intending to on two different occasions, defeated by she... Read more
There is a difference this time around.

I've gone on mini exercise binges before, with the thought of dropping weight. Usually, there's a specific incident that triggers such attempts, such as getting on the scale and seeing an increment that hadn't appeared before, or just *feeling* ... Read more
