Yesterday I received distressing news at work. Don't be concerned, it's nothing earth-shattering. You know the news where you're not happy about it, but you'll get over it. I'll shake it off. After I received the news I kept thinking about ... Read more

Welcome to my updated page. Like the look? I was in the mood to decorate for my favorite holiday, Halloween. I love it even more than Christmas, although Christmas rates right up there I assure you! I'm joining my third Stormy's Challengers... Read more

It's Time to Build Muscle. Your Input Appreciated.

Monday, September 28, 2015      7 comments

One of the two main reasons I began losing weight was because of the very real threat of diabetes. It is prevalent in my family. My like-aged cousins were getting it. My sister had gestational diabetes and then my mother was diagnosed. If I can ... Read more

Have you friended me?

Monday, September 28, 2015      3 comments

If you have friended me and I did not friend you back it is not because I don't want to. It is because I don't know you've friended me. I finally figured out why this morning and have fixed my email settings. So if you did, and I haven't fr... Read more

Next Up...Estonia. And how we see ourselves.

Saturday, September 26, 2015      6 comments

The next country we visited was Estonia. We went to Tallin. Adorable city. I had read so much about this little tucked away open air market. I wanted to go but everyone said it was so hard to find. I gave my husband all the info I could find on ... Read more

Friday, September 25, 2015      5 comments

Do you strive for "more" for your career? If so, how do you balance work life? Or is that even possible with the choices you make? Did you always think that you needed to keep climbing the corporate ladder? Did something happen to make you ... Read more

Big and long day at work. Ultimately for the good. Just time pressure to deliver to make the good stuff happen. And 13 hour days are never fun. More of the same tomorrow. But next, Germany! Read more

Back from Vacation...and I QUIT SMOKING!

Tuesday, September 22, 2015      12 comments

Had a marvelous time but by the same token it is super good to be home too. Back to my own bed, my own shower, my house (dusty though it was after two weeks!), my clingy poor CAT! She had visitors three times a day but you'd think we were brutal... Read more

Happy Anniversary to Us

Wednesday, September 02, 2015      10 comments

September 3rd is my wedding anniversary. To be honest, we celebrate our "moving in together" anniversary more. I told him for years he was "just fun" and I would never marry him. He said "I'll wait until you realize you're in love with me." Pesk... Read more

An Open Letter to Stormy's Challengers

Tuesday, September 01, 2015      12 comments

Preface: As I've mentioned, I was far too shy to join communities the last time I was on Sparkpeople. I dove into it this time. As August came to a close, I had to reflect on all the beautiful changes. While you're here, let me share with you th... Read more

On a Bad Day...

Work was stinky today. I knew this week would be difficult. I'm leaving Friday for a two week vacation. You know what they say, you pay for vacation before or after! I was prepared to pay before but some unexpected curveballs came my way that ma... Read more
