I have a lot of good habits: I always make my bed. I do my sheets & towels every Sunday. I walk 30-60 min a day. I do them easily because they're ingrained in my life, and because I "like" exercise, clean linens, and made beds.

This is my last day at work. I'm going to class at 1, then doing all the signing off stuff, like turning in my keys, going to benefits & payroll, then taking my box of stuff home. Monday is my actual last day, but I'm taking a sick day, as my bo... Read more
I had a job interview, right here at the university, for a programmer position today. It went really well, I know one of the women as a band-mom (like me), and I've worked with another of them. I had to take a written test, which my comp sci cl... Read more
I have a busy day ahead of me. Dr app at 10, class at 1, back-to-school night at 6:30-8:30. I'm feeling much better, eating regular foods. I'm nervous about being weighted by the dr because of all the weight I gained when depressed.

I'm starting my day off well: tracking my food honestly, and getting a 30 min walk. I'm planning on doing some wood working, building a railing around the attic stairwell, for safety. I made a delicious tomato sauce from tomatoes and basil from ... Read more
Losing weight, then gaining it all back (and then some) happens. It happened to me, and lots of other people, too. I have recently regained some, not all. And I'm trying not to let it get me down, on top of all the other stress & depression I'm ... Read more
A few pairs of pants fit again. I've reached a new stage of depression, where I accept that lay off is happening in 5 weeks. Nothing is going to stop it. no reprieve from the governor. no deus ex machina. I wish my mother were alive. No one is e... Read more
