Good Morning SP campers!
I just love the rain! I like to ride through the mud puddles and get sloppy wet, then go home, shower and have hot chocolate and soup with a movie.
All that said, I'm sitting in my office trying to work while visions of mud puddles dance t... Read more
Tuesday, and 3 more days to call in for Jury Duty
So far so good, my number hasn't come up yet. Still waiting. In the mean time I sat on my glasses while knitting on my socks last night. I'm wearing them now. I call the look Occulous Moebious. The optical shop opens in 15 minutes, and I pl... Read more
End of a lovely weekend
It really was a nice weekend. Saturday morning I got up just in time to catch the Saturday Market before heading out for breakfast with a friend. We had some overcast skies and even a little rain last week, so the weather was sunny, but not to... Read more
Sunday morning, week of jury duty
Maybe it's not very patriotic of me, I don't know. But I resent being called for jury duty every 2 years. I really do understand the system, but as a former DA's daughter, I am always the first potential juror excused from serving on the panel... Read more
Friday as the week from heck winds down
This morning I am not at the office earning overtime to pay for my home repairs. I'm waiting for a subcontractor to come finish preping my dining room ceiling for painting. DS and I will paint the house as soon as I've got the money to do so.

It really hurt, but I gained this past week, so I put that in my weight tracker. I didn't want to admit it. I didn't want to know about it.
I keep telling myself that I'm better about this whole 2 steps forward 1 step back thing, but the ... Read more
Oddly relaxing morning
I'm starting to get used to the routine of washing my hair and cat bathing in the kitchen sink while making coffee and pulling out breakfast and lunch for the day. It's so much simpler this way.
The only real shortcoming I can see right no... Read more
Down the drain without a paddle, the straight scoop on my home repair woes.
On Wednesday, July 3, my extra long vacation turned into the vacation from H-E-double hockey sticks.
I was resting that morning, for the first time in days. I'd wanted to make sure that my house didn't call out to me for more work, so I cl... Read more
Today's Sparkcoach lesson was on moderation; somthing I'm thinking a lot about this morning. With all the frustrations in my house right now, the tub is not useable, which led us to rip up the bathroom floor, which turned the main bathroom into... Read more
Positive feedback or revenge?
Spark Coach asked me today to visualize all the positive response I would get once I had reached my goal weight. I do look forward to those ego boosts.
But is it wrong that one of the things I want is revenge? And I want it oh, so badly.... Read more
The Flying Fickle Finger of Fate
Is anyone willing to admit they're old enough to be familiar with this award? I think I won it yesterday.
I was all happy with my new yarn, and had curled up on the couch with my fur baby to watch a couple of episodes of Buffy, and start w... Read more
Goodbye 12 pounds, hello sock yarn!
For my first 10 pound weight loss, I promised myself new sock yarn and a music lesson. I bought the yarn yesterday. I may have to move the music lesson down to another goal, I can't really afford it yet. Besides, if I swing things right, I ca... Read more
Can I do this?
At my last meeting with my dietitian we talked a lot about my successes, and a few of the things I still felt needed work. She’s an interesting woman, my dietitian, and her choice of extreme pointed toed stilettos seems totally at odds with her... Read more
Meditation on a weekend morning run.
Saturday I decided to try running in the morning. I used to be a morning person, but I haven't been one in many years now. And besides, even when I was a morning person my joints didn't wake up for at least an hour after I did.
But on Sat... Read more
How would it feel to send all my big clothes to goodwill?
That's the question Sparkcoach asked me today. How would I feel? Oddly enough not so great. How many times in my life have I released those fat clothes, only to have to buy a whole new set in another year or two?
Frankly, the idea scares... Read more
