I have a floor! *LOL* I packed up all my winter clothes away, dusted (between living in the high desert a mile from a quarry, it's a losing battle, but it looks nice for now), vacuumed and am working on two more loads for the dryer. I still hav... Read more

I have a whole weekend for the first time in three weeks! I have been working 10 hour days and 5 1/2 day weeks. Combine that with not sleeping well during that time and I am exhausted. Last night was the first time in weeks I slept deeply and on... Read more

It has been a hectic few weeks since my last post. I'm working lots of overtime again and it looks as if this will keep up for some time. I have worked half days three Saturdays in a row, not to mention the 1.5 or more hours OT a day during the... Read more

I had a nice, if quiet birthday 🎂. I enjoy my alone time, but would have enjoyed so much more, sharing my special time with a friend(s). It's just not the same. Bought a couple of gifts for myself, got my nails done, bought myself flowers, an... Read more

The crud got me good. I stayed down all weekend and dosed myself with meds, tea and sleep. I stayed home Monday and Tuesday as much as I hated to do so. I slowly started to feel better and yesterday I felt like myself again. As a matter, I feel ... Read more

I woke up yesterday morning with a tight chest and rattling cough that came out of nowhere. I stopped at the store on my way to work to buy an arsenal of medications, soup, tea and honey to help make the journey a bit easier. I felt ok during th... Read more

Making progress...my eating is pretty much under control, I am moving a bit more, despite the foot pain. My attitude is much better and I am back to my more or less optimistic self. Yesterday I worked on my room some more. Did a little rear... Read more

Well, the switch has finally flipped on! I was afraid there for while it wouldn't. It's been a rough little bit, but I knew it wouldn't last. My clothes are snugger, but I know I can fix that! So here I am...ready once again. Hours are fin... Read more

Completely slept through my alarm by an hour... I woke up a half hour before my alarm went off, and laid in bed planning my day. I fell in to a deep sleep and woke up at 3:00. Missed my gym time, but have ample opportunities to walk today. I wil... Read more
Well...not quite as much done as I had planned, but a good start!

I kind of overestimated my energy level and how much I really need to do! Too much for one day. I got laundry done and made headway on my room, but I just ran out of steam! Luckily Fall cleaning is just that and I have a few weeks to do everythi... Read more
