I've Held These "Truths" to Be Self-Evident.
I got a birthday card last year. This blog has been sitting in my drafts box for a looooong time--at least five months. Anyway, my friend who sent me the birthday card isn't just anyone--she's a very good friend who lived with us for a year and ... Read more
2014, you're about to get owned.
So, I think I've thoroughly regrouped after my performance evaluation. I've come to terms with the fact that if I'd had it earlier, this wouldn't have happened, that these people are not going to change their minds, no matter how ridiculous, and... Read more
The Post-Evaluation Email I Wish I Could Send
Dear Drizella and Anastasia,
I wanted to follow up on the meeting we had on Friday evening--my performance evaluation. I am glad to have had some time to decompress all of it, and now want to go over some of the issues I see.
First of ... Read more
So over these people...
I was a grouch today. I admit that. This doggie was allowed to sleep with us last night, and she couldn't decide if she was hot or cold, so she went back and forth from under the covers to next to my head over and over, panting when she was hot.... Read more
I know it's been awhile since I've blogged, but I don't know. I have a blog sitting in my drafts box, and I just haven't had the desire to finish it. Perhaps I will at some point.
Daisy's doing well. She is very sweet and silly. Yeeeeeah, I... Read more
So...I Got a Puppy...
Yeah, I got a puppy. Seeing her and getting her made me realize I'm not quite ready for a new dog, but my husband sure is. He had, like, hearts coming out of his eyes like a cartoon character when he saw her. Ah-OOO-ga! ... Read more
Tracking my calories today would be a lesson in futility, starting with even the most basic thing one takes for granted when tracking calories: I can't even tell where yesterday ended and today began! Overnight flights, man. I'm in Brasilia, the... Read more
Eh, sort of a NSV, followed by...not one.
I went to get a massage today, because I got an email special. I'd never used this guy before, and he was really, really good. His background was in physical therapy, so he really knew his stuff. Unfortunately, he was quite a talker, which I don... Read more
I went over my calories today. It was the first time. I had 10 days of being in-range. I didn't mean to go over, and I only barely went over...and what tipped me over was a pluot I'd forgotten I'd eaten at lunch! That's what happens when you eat... Read more
All Kinds of Loss...
Today wasn't easy.
I wound up not picking up Sammy's ashes. I couldn't. I really couldn't. I feel very bad about it but I made my husband go by himself. I could be there with Sammy at the end, because he needed me, but this was just too har... Read more
My Baby's Gone
We had to take Sammy to the vet on Monday to be put down. It was hands-down, no-question, the absolute worst day of my entire life...until the next day, which was even worse.
It had to be done. He cried a lot, couldn't stand at all and on S... Read more
Dang, has it been a long time since I've blogged or what?! Well, not for nothing, but I have been here, checking my friend feed, tracking my exercise, intermittently tracking my food intake...
I've been traveling a lot for work. Two trips a... Read more
Sugar Tooth Ramble
I haven't been around much, because I went to visit my grandmother with my sister AMYLONGHORN. Grandma's birthday was on Sunday, and it was really great to see her and make her happy and really hard to see how she's declining and then leave her.... Read more
Million Step Club
First, my sugar stuff...I ate a Jordan almond, and not a second one, which was good. We had a luncheon today at work, so I was holding off on eating, but I was STARVING. I ate one chocolate, and then had another one. One thing I noticed (not fo... Read more
