5:30 AM is a GREAT time to go to the gym!

Just don't call it starting over!

Friday, January 02, 2015      2 comments

First a mea culpa - The "Walking to Mom's House" thing seemed like a great idea, for about 3 days. By that time, my knees were in full rebellion. I was already headed to the doctor to have an injection in the more painful of them, so I thought... Read more

Walking to Mom's house in a year challenge -- Day 3

Wednesday, August 13, 2014      3 comments

I'm off to an embarrassing start. Only 1 mile on Monday. I let an inconvenient change in plans by daughter number 2 derail my evening walk. Not her fault. I'm in charge. Yesterday it rained and I only got in one mile then as well. I se... Read more

Walking to Mom's house in a year challenge -- Day 1

Monday, August 11, 2014      5 comments

One thing my lack of progress this year has taught me, is that I work best with a clear measurable goal. Last year, it was walking in my first 5k. Now I don't know how much of a walk it takes to get to your Mom's house, but according to Google... Read more

A view of the world from behind my eyelids

Friday, May 16, 2014      3 comments

Thanks Mav. That was an awesome thought. I finished up my last part-time shif last night. It was nothing but anti-climactic. Thursday tends to be a relatively slow night. By the end of my shift, I was surrounded mostly by relatively new hir... Read more

Catching up and the end of the Geek Squad

Thursday, May 15, 2014      1 comments

So much since I took time to linger here. First, morning walks with J have resumed. You might think that recovering from sleep depravity would be incompatible with getting up at 4:30 in the A.M. to walk a quick (relatively) mile, and you woul... Read more

When is a goal not a goal?

Friday, April 18, 2014      5 comments

I know I said yesterday that getting more sleep was a goal. Truthfully, it was more of a wish. PLMitch commented that it was a good goal, and it made me think..."I really didn't make a goal of it." Well, that's going to take some thought and ... Read more

Rested and ready?...Naw

Thursday, April 17, 2014      3 comments

I've been working on the whole sleep thing. Last night was not helpful. Lots of catch up stuff the last two nights, actually. Not terribly strenuous. I got a haircut, did some shopping. Attempted a light repair at home (need to go shopping ... Read more

Extra hours, Good DR visit and "I'll sleep when I'm dead"...or something

Wednesday, April 02, 2014      3 comments

First the Doc visit. Doc cancelled a visit late last year when I was to have my blood pressure checked. DW tired of waiting for me to fit a return visit into my busy schedule and made the appointment for me (Thank you Sweetie). End result...m... Read more

It hurts so good...or not so much

Friday, March 14, 2014      5 comments

It's been quite a while since I had a gym membership, so I knew I'd need to scale things back. Well, I didn't scaled back quite enough. I didn't injure myself and mostly experienced that discomfort that comes from first using unused muscles. ... Read more

Spring Cleaning and trading Netflix for 'The Gym'

Monday, March 10, 2014      5 comments

I've never been one for New Year's resolutions. I don't keep them, so I don't bother. Now I'm having some wonderful convergences. My hours have been cut at my part-time job. That comes right as my need for fuel oil is falling off. I'm incred... Read more

S.A.D and an introspection on passion

Tuesday, February 04, 2014      5 comments

Oh my, wasn't that a catchy title. OK, not my best, but I've been introspective over the last few days, so there ya go. S.A.D. I wonder how long someone worked to come up with that one. Seasonal Affective Disorder. We used to call that ... Read more

Job interview, NSV and a pet peeve

Wednesday, December 11, 2013      6 comments

Job Interview I've been employed long enough now to be eligible to apply for seniority promotions (without going through the civil service testing system). I had my first interview and it was a total bust. As we were going through the int... Read more

Catching up, peddling and remember your clocks

Friday, November 01, 2013      5 comments

Thanks for all the warm birthday wishes and encouraging comments. It was quiet, and that's all I'm really up for these days. Sorry to hear about those who don't enjoy them. I don't make a big fuss, but as is evidenced by the fact that I annou... Read more

Birthday reflection - 500 miles?!

Tuesday, October 29, 2013      8 comments

I'm not normally one to spend a lot of time reflecting on the past. It's called the past for a reason. Still, sometimes it's good to see how far we've come and birthday's can be as good a reason to do that as any. Last year this time, I was a... Read more
