Coming Down the Homestretch
I'm in my last day of Dr. Hyman's one-week detox plan. I won't lie - it was tough in the beginning, and it's not especially easy now, but the scale is loving it! I'm down 6 lbs. with one day left. This is my lowest weight since April, 2009. ... Read more
After the high of my June trip, July wasn't such a great month for me. Between work stress, family drama, Spark drama, friend problems, and health problems, I lost focus. When I realised that my three year Sparkiversary is just a couple of day... Read more

Wow. It's been three weeks since MacDuff and I arrived in Beirut. The time is flying by! I arrived and sort of jumped right into the work, but MacDuff and I are trying to fin... Read more
Greetings from Beirut!
I have to dash this off, so fasten your seat belts - the transfer was a rough ride.
When I last blogged, the company had lost my medical receipts and expenditures. Both were found and credited! Yay!
And the packers had taken all my c... Read more
