It's been HOW long?

Wednesday, May 21, 2014      3 comments

No, not really. February since I last hopped on SP? Okay, here's the update: Fought with my brother, nobody won. What a shock. Sister is back in Ireland. *SNIFF!* Completed Gold Nugget Triathlon almost 1/2 hour faster than last year... Read more

busy week with more to come

Thursday, February 13, 2014      2 comments

So busy this week! I know it's going to get busier too. I'm loving it, because it represents positive movement both in my professional life and in my social life. At the same time, I'm having an even harder time fitting in proper nutrition an... Read more

Moose at Work

Pardon me for slipping off topic, but we had a couple of moose wander into the parking lot at work on Friday. I'd like to share the pictures. Mountain Moose Read more

Wading through the muck

Thursday, February 06, 2014      4 comments

Here in Alaska we have a slightly different name for spring. We call it Breakup. When it finally arrives around late April we are all delighted with the lovely little green leaves sprouting all over the place. But if you look down, you discov... Read more

I'm still here, really

Friday, January 17, 2014      1 comments

2014 has brought me new opportunities, lots of them. I'm feeling better about myself and my life than I have in a very long time. With those opportunities are challenges that are consuming pretty much all of my time. I will stop by when I... Read more

Just for today, I'm back and doing baby steps

Monday, December 02, 2013      2 comments

Writing a novel in a month is like taking an exciting adventure through my own subconscious. What a weird and wonderful journey it was! But I'm back and taking the first baby steps toward getting my eating back on track. Popcorn is no longer... Read more

Yes, I'm still here.

Friday, November 15, 2013      3 comments

I know I haven't been dropping my gems of wisdom lately. Just wanted to let folks know I'm still around. I write a novel every November. No, I'm not published, yes that is the idea, but this is my time. I will see you all in December. ... Read more

Rambling Saturday morning report

Saturday, October 26, 2013      3 comments

I'm a cheerful morning person, but one thing I don't deal well with first thing in the morning is change. Since I haven't logged in for a while, this is the first time I've seen the new start page; I will reserve judgement until I've had my cof... Read more

Just for today. It's all about starting over, sort of

Thursday, October 03, 2013      2 comments

It is a bit of a conundrum, but living just for today means starting fresh every single minute, but it doesn't really have anything to do with starting over. There is no step 1 to go back to. Each new day is the beginning of an opportunity for... Read more

Just for today I will not buy stuff

Thursday, September 26, 2013      2 comments

I'm a shopaholic. I keep trying to deny it, but when something upsets me I go shopping online. It starts innocently enough. For instance. Dad passed away. I ended up with his herringbone Harris Tweed sport cap. He wore it all the time. No... Read more

Just for today, resetting the morning

Tuesday, September 24, 2013      2 comments

Given my long and difficult hunt for a cup of coffee this morning (see previous blog entry), there was a time when that would have set the mood for my day. It doesn't anymore. That bit's over and I'm in to my work day, happily sipping on my ni... Read more

Just like Tuesday, but with attitude

Tuesday, September 24, 2013      2 comments

I got out of the house about 10 minutes later than I wanted to. Drove to my favorite coffee place, which was 3 cars deep. I sat in the line for 5 minutes and it didn't move, so I headed on to the office. I was 10 minutes late. I worked until... Read more

Just for today on a quiet Sunday morning

Sunday, September 22, 2013      2 comments

I finally caught the virus brought in from Unalaska by my sister. I could feel it coming on yesterday, so I went running just in case I was too sick today. I feel okay, so I'm finally taking that bike ride I've been promising myself all week. ... Read more

Just for today all is well

Friday, September 20, 2013      6 comments

The sun is shining, there's snow on the mountains, I'm back at work. To the best of my knowledge my tub isn't leaking into the living room anymore. I appear to have lost more weight in the last couple of weeks. That's good. It wasn't on ... Read more

I'm back. Dad's memorial was so beautiful!

Friday, September 20, 2013      3 comments

It was amazing the number of lives he touched. He was a 30 plus year recovering alcoholic, and had mentored many other recovering alcoholics, even during the worst days when he could barely use his hands or speak. I felt so proud to be his dau... Read more
