I Ran!

Wednesday, July 01, 2015      1 comments

It's been nearly seven months since I wrenched my ankle while running. I was so happy to start out again. Today I racked up 1.63 miles on the legs with a morning run. The endorphins are running high right now. Read more

No Squats Yet, But Other Work is Done

Friday, June 19, 2015      0 comments

I worked in my kitchen dusting and cleaning my countertops, mopping the floor, and tidying the bric-a-brac. I cleaned the cabinet under my sink and the basket for cleaning supplies as well as repotted some plants in desperate need. I shredded so... Read more

Days of Grace

Wednesday, June 10, 2015      0 comments

My mother gave me some great advice about my vacation time. Because I tend to be a perfectionist and workaholic, I want to get everything done right away when my summer holiday begins. I am giving myself some days of grace. The laundry, cooking,... Read more

Just Six Calories Under

Tuesday, June 09, 2015      2 comments

Yesterday I managed to eat just six calories below my maximum range. Whew! I'll try to leave a few "on the floor" today. One of my friends is joining me on a walk today, so that will make it more fun as we take to the streets with our powerwalki... Read more

Last Day of May

Sunday, May 31, 2015      0 comments

Today dawned bright and beautiful with the sun shining brilliantly outside. Now, we can dry out a bit here in the Lone Star State and allow the waters to recede in flooded areas. Now, we can recover. My son and I are getting ready for the early ... Read more

Sleep Update

Saturday, May 30, 2015      2 comments

I followed advice about using melatonin and SleepyTime tea, and it works for me usually. I've done this primarily during the school week so that I can be rational and reasonable when my excited youngsters are bursting with energy. On the weekend... Read more

Up Late Again

Sunday, May 03, 2015      4 comments

I dozed off earlier this evening and awakened at 11:49 P.M. Yes, I am still awake at 1:15 A.M. This is madness. I will grab the Agatha Christie mystery I've been trying to read and suspend electronic interaction with SparkPeople and Facebook so... Read more

Staying Put?

Thursday, April 30, 2015      1 comments

Although I put in a request for a transfer nearly two months ago, nothing has happened, so I feel that I am to be at my current campus unless the LORD intervenes in a mighty way and clears the path for me. I will accept my place and bloom where ... Read more

I put in my request for a transfer to another campus and received my principal's blessing. I am relieved. I am fully aware that no one is irreplaceable. I am simply ready for another challenge at this point in my life.... Read more

And Now for Something New?

Sunday, March 01, 2015      2 comments

I will be informing my principal of my intent to request a transfer from middle school to high school level. I didn't meet the deadline last year, so I wasn't interviewed by any prospective employers, but I will be "Jilly-on-the-spot" this time.... Read more

Foiled Again?

Wednesday, February 25, 2015      2 comments

We had some ice/snow/sleet descend in our area and shut us down for two days this week. I couldn't go for my morning walk, so I did some strength training. I relished walking around my school today, but it wasn't the same as my morning powerwal... Read more

Happy Birthday, Son!

Tuesday, February 24, 2015      1 comments

Seventeen years ago, I became a Mama to Trey. The time has flown by, and he is so grown up in so many ways yet still a kid in others. He still loves watching Looney Tunes cartoons, being covered with warm blankets, and playing video games. He's ... Read more
