Holding steady despite hectic life
I have been working very social jobs lately. Lots of email, lots of meetings, lots of one on one talks, lots of events involving lots of people. And for about three weeks I had two jobs overlap- one an 8 week gig, the other a 3 month gig. All th... Read more
Not feeling well but got a mellow run in just the same
I seem to be fighting another cold/flu like thing. Having a hard time regulating my temperature and tired out tonight. But trying to just rest was making my back hurt. So I decided to do 30 minutes of jogging in my house. The poor girls version ... Read more
Four plus hours of busting tuckas
I got paid $60 to clean up an artist's studio/guest area. Scrubbed bathroom, moved all sorts of boxes, swept, re-arranged. Worked for over four hours. Difficult to figure out how to track it. So I broke it down as 90 minutes of moving boxes (lot... Read more
A day at a theme park and shopping my sister's closet
Yesterday, we drove down to Tampa and spent a chunk of the day at Busch Gardens. My sister bought us fun passes (which are good until the end of the year). Now the environmental part of me has all sorts of problems with theme parks, but I also l... Read more
Thanks for the Teddy Bear Love and odds and ends
It made me smile. So thanks for that.

A bit of this and that
I haven't been blogging 'cause I've been doing creative writing- which is what I needs to be doing. If you are flexible about religion, follow the link for a sample of my writing in the seriously comic, comically serious character of Bishop Bis... Read more
December has been good to me
Due to lots of cleaning and cooking and family socializing and then a full week of work this past week, I haven't blogged or been able to keep up with folks. Overall, the holidays were good.
I didn't lose weight (I lost some early December... Read more
Full week leading into full weekend
I've been doing a lot of cleaning and grocery shopping, etc, to prepare for the holidaze. The good think about the cleaning is that it has been the vigorous, heavy kind- which means I've gotten in my fitness minutes as well my cleaning. Also man... Read more
Sugar and booze and funks, oh my!
Monday was the office Holiday party at my pick up job. There are all sorts of things I should have done, but what I did was not eat enough breakfast (I wasn't hungry), work out for 60 minutes, forget my apple, rush to work, clock in and begin ea... Read more
One quarter Jonah day
I'm feeling a bit put upon. What follows are a few grumbles seasoned with a wee bit of gratitude.
Last night, I slept in the church for Interfaith Hospitality Network- which means I got next to no sleep- and what sleep I got wasn't the mos... Read more
The list of what I've gotten done in the past week besides the usual
Put together two Ikea nightstands and one daybed.
Cooked 5 gallons of soup for the Home Van. I break the work down over several days, but it more than a full days worth of work.
Took Momma Christmas shopping and to mediocre Olive Gar... Read more
Putting together furniture and cooking up a storm and shopping
So it is a shame that assembling furniture doesn't count as fitness because I have spent hours and hours lugging (which I counted as moving boxes, thank you very much) and putting together Ikea furniture over the past two days. My husband helped... Read more
Ikea, volunteering and job search
Yesterday running into this morning was a long, full day.
My father decided that he wanted to drive down to Tampa (my sister and nephew live there) and go to the Ikea store to get a day bed for my spare room (long story, but since late Jul... Read more

Sleep, lack of hunger, running

Turns out, I need a bit more sleep in December, most of the year I need 7 to 7.5, December seems to demand 8 to 8.5... Read more
