Post New Year blahs

Well I'd have to say I feel a bit let down because none of my grand plans have worked out. Not to be totally slogged, I continue on my path.... Read more
Lots of News!

As a follow up to my surgery, I have to say that so far it has been an amazing thing! I feel so much better, I can't even begin to start. And the good folks at University of Pennsylvania Hospital deserve some serious props because they took ve... Read more

I met with the surgeon. He seemed fairly confident that all would be fine regarding my upcoming procedure. Like many educators, I am postponing surgery until school is out, even though this is a ticking time bomb. However, both the GI d... Read more
What is wrong with me . . .
Wednesday, February 06, 2013      7 comments

You will note this is not a question. Like "WHAT is wrong with me??" It is a statement. What is wrong with me . . . I have always been a vomiter. No, not bulimic. I just throw up. A lot. Always have. My parents used to arch an eyebr... Read more

Saturday, January 19, 2013      4 comments

It has been four years since I was in the plane crash. Every year, I honor that day with another section from what I refer to as "my Alaskan Adventures". I am again adding another segment: It really wasn't until I was in a car accident i... Read more
Sewing Again!
Tuesday, August 14, 2012      4 comments

Overall, I've been in a general funk. My diet has been totally off. My job search has been fruitless. I'm going back to AK which I am not thrilled about because of being away from Walt so much. I miss my house in Ohio. I've had health probl... Read more

Trying to Deal
Saturday, June 09, 2012      6 comments

As some of you may know, I packed up and went to work in Alaska as a knee jerk reaction to getting seriously ill. About two months after my first husband died (that's another story), I collapsed at work. Three days and a bazillion tests later,... Read more
I just want to Understand Myself or The Story of Lisa and the Diabetic Coma
Friday, March 30, 2012      7 comments

I'm going to tell you a terrible story. It is my hope to understand myself more. I have a rather deep understanding of human behavior (see "psych" in "Alaskapsych"). But when it comes to my own emotions, I am usually at a total loss. My psych... Read more
Anniversary of the Plane Crash
Wednesday, January 18, 2012      3 comments

Tomorrow marks the second anniversary of my plane crash. (Documented in a previous blog entitled "Mik'"). As a way to honor this day, I thought I'd post another section from my writings: As the weather continued to escalate, I found it ha... Read more
Couldn't Help Myself!
Wednesday, January 11, 2012      5 comments

I have no self control! Yes, I'm sewing again, but this is the last project for a while. I leave for AK for 4 maybe 5 weeks, and I'm not taking the sewing along. :( But this is a birthday present for my daughter. It turned out ok. Not fa... Read more
A Record!
Wednesday, January 04, 2012      4 comments

Yes, boys and girls, I have now set a record! What record you ask? I have managed to abandon my new year's resolution of eating better and exercising in only 4 (count them, 4!) days. I am, at least, sewing. I have some new projects in th... Read more
Long Story . . . yep, long story (no short)
Monday, December 19, 2011      5 comments

You know me by now. I have to tattle on myself and my blogs are frequently filled with angst. This will probably be no exception. As you probably know, after many years I have begun sewing again. My daughters gave me a lovely sewing mach... Read more
Thank you, Done Girls!
Friday, November 11, 2011      3 comments

As you may or may not realize, I was named Done Girl of the Day on Wednesday. I have to say, without question, it was a well timed and well appreciated honor! I have been feeling pretty bleak about the whole diet and weight loss process and ne... Read more
It's times like this
Wednesday, November 09, 2011      6 comments

I always say I came to Alaska because I was looking for good karma. And I always say that I found it. People either say how lucky I am to be working up here or when they hear about what it is like in the bush, they respond with things like wha... Read more
