Holy cow, I haven't blogged since Tues?! I'm just having a super busy week at work. I'm putting together a couple of oversight hearings and the background paper for one has been a bear - we're compiling a matrix of all the programs this one ag... Read more

Tuesday, February 09, 2016      4 comments

I was feeling stressed at work this morning and almost went down the road I usually go down - grabbing a sandwich and eating at my desk so I could keep on cranking. But then I said NO. I need to get out in this gorgeous weather (we're getting ... Read more

Thursday, February 04, 2016      2 comments

Well, Kate is now officially an Advanced Junior Black Belt! I still haven't figured everything out - one of the moms said when they're 13 they can go for Adult Black Belt, but I'm not sure if that means they can start Black Belt Prep when they ... Read more

Got some running in today - 17 minutes total (my usual 2-min increments), 2.9 miles. Tonight, Kate promotes to ADVANCED Junior Black Belt! She's kind of in a holding pattern now - she can't start training for Adult Black Belt till she's ... Read more

Thanks all, for your comments on my blog yesterday about the Girl Scout mess. I'm still not too happy about it, but my co-leader and I sent out an email to the parents last night. We had to send a similar email last spring and they all respond... Read more

Monday, February 01, 2016      7 comments

Ughhhhhh. I started off today feeling so good, and then it all went to hell. First, I found out that a guy I used to work with, who is just a few years older than me (I'm 48), died last week of a heart attack!!! How is that even possible... Read more

Saturday, January 30, 2016      4 comments

It's been a rough week on some levels. I was up all night Sunday night with stomach cramps and stayed home Monday. I felt mostly back to normal on Tuesday but all week, it seems like I keep swinging between being starving, and my stomach hurti... Read more

I was home sick on Monday, went back to work yesterday and holy cow, I think I slammed two days' worth of work into one! Crazy day. Which was good in a way - I still wasn't feeling 100% but I didn't have time to think about it. Back to normal... Read more

Monday, January 25, 2016      3 comments

I didn't have that busy a day yesterday, but I was just exhausted when I went to bed. I had some stomach issues when I first woke up, but then I took the dog for a walk and was basically fine. But I was kind of tired all day. Anyhow, ende... Read more

Day 24: Too Much Balance? ;-)

Sunday, January 24, 2016      0 comments

So, I think I may be starting to go a little overboard on this whole make-time-for-me-and-downtime thing...after running errands like crazy for several hours yesterday, I crashed out on my bed with a book for two solid hours, then sat and watche... Read more

Yay, it's Friday, and it's already 2pm! I've been in meetings and briefings almost the entire day, so it has gone by quickly. I was supposed to run today, but Bam-Bam was determined to go with even though I tried to explain to her that i... Read more
