I'm Still Here
Monday, February 13, 2017      3 comments

Just a quick "hello" to let you all know I'm still around. I am caught up in the craziness of life at the moment but am thinking of you all. Details to come but the nutshell is: we are in the midst of selling our house, buying a house, a jo... Read more
The Techie-Geeky Aspect
Friday, December 09, 2016      3 comments

So I was reading my friend Keakman’s blog tonight. It was a great story about her learning to drive a Model T. She drew a grand analogy about how tough those old cars were and how you also had to be tough and willing to go through those ruts ... Read more
Just a Small Investment
Wednesday, December 07, 2016      4 comments

The last time I was here I had the good fortune of being laid off from my job about two months after embarking on my journey. Good fortune, you ask? Some fellow Sparkers I “ran” with back then may recall that I was extremely focused, and therefo... Read more
Round 2
Monday, December 05, 2016      2 comments

We returned from a week in Kauai Hawaii last night. We’d never been to any of the islands so when we were presented the opportunity we jumped on it. Asked which island we wanted to go to, we had no idea, but I knew I didn’t want to just laze ar... Read more
Just Go Already

I’m behind on my commitment to blog every week so I’m going to attempt to squeeze in two this week. Eee. A day or two before our anniversary weekend I started coming down with the winter crud that keeps making its way around the dealership ... Read more
A Mediocre Start
Friday, January 16, 2015      7 comments

Look, we all want this to be an easy task, but if it was we wouldn't be here in the first place. This process is going to leave us with results that are in direct correlation to the effort we put into it. Lay out your plans in detail. Visualize ... Read more
A Kick in the Seat, Please
Saturday, January 10, 2015      7 comments

I’m sitting down this morning to (again) get back on track with my blogging. It seems like just a couple weeks ago that I wrote about how important blogging was to my success and how I was going to get back on track with it. But apparently it w... Read more
Here I Go Again...
Tuesday, July 01, 2014      5 comments

Since this is my first blog in over three years…aaaahhh, I’ll make it the down and dirty recap/update. When I last dropped off from Sparkland, I was half way through my second year of school which had been quite brutal in many ways. I comp... Read more

What About Glutamine
Thursday, November 18, 2010      5 comments

Key points on glutamine are that it is a non-essentiall amino acid (protein), meaning that it is already produced in your body. It is also naturally occuring in plants and animal tissue, which means that in addition to producing our own, we get... Read more
Common Questions
Wednesday, November 17, 2010      8 comments

I just wanted to share with you all, some questions that I hear a lot. This particular conversation is one I had with my SIL via FB (which is why the short-hand on her questions). These are some of the key things I've studied over the past yea... Read more
Just One Thing
Friday, June 18, 2010      8 comments

I’m long overdue for a blog, in part because I don’t exactly know where to start. I guess with the last term is as good as any place. I finished spring term with a 3.87 GPA; a strange number because each + counts for some minute portion of a p... Read more
Kids Say the Darnedest Things
Friday, May 14, 2010      6 comments

Markus and I got into a brief chat about having kids today. He made a comment that I must have forgotten that he is not going to have kids. 'That's what I said,' I told him, 'and look a me now.' Laughing he pointed out how VERY lucky I wa... Read more
The Truth Is...

I've gained back 18# since returning to school. I'm tired. I haven't exercised regularly since last summer. I haven't consistently eaten balanced meals in as long. About 3-4 nights a week, I blow a beautifully executed nutrition plan. ... Read more
Projects Galore
Monday, March 22, 2010      7 comments

My mind is racing with all the things I need to accomplish this spring break. I’ve gotten as far as deciding what those things are. My last final was on Thursday afternoon, so I was going to get a little jump on my projects. Right away ... Read more
