On the Value of a Friendly Gesture

Wednesday, June 24, 2015      3 comments

This morning I was ten minutes late getting to work due to a traffic backup. I was carrying in a heavy box. The branch overhanging the parking spot I used snagged my hair as I got out of the car. Not my best morning. As I was trudging into ... Read more

Just Venting

Thursday, November 06, 2014      3 comments

My library has an opening for a receptionist and I was asked to be on the interview panel. One of our applicants was very well dressed, a military academy graduate, and clearly bright. So I was shocked to hear her use "friggin' " twice in her ... Read more

On Not Reading the Label

Wednesday, October 29, 2014      3 comments

Yesterday morning my husband mentioned that it had been a while since we had baked potatoes for dinner so I said I'd pick some up on my way home. We put some sour cream, shredded cheese and black beans on top and have a side salad. I decided t... Read more

Feel Like Dancing

Friday, October 24, 2014      5 comments

I just saw a colleague who has an 18-month old daughter and I asked him about her. Ever the proud father, he quickly displayed a video of her dancing around. His wife had put on some music and their daughter giggled and danced around and aroun... Read more

Backslider returns

Friday, September 26, 2014      4 comments

So, I'd been doing OK and then I was doing not good at all, referring to my eating and exercise habits. I was away on vacation with my husband for a couple of weeks. We had a good time but we both realized (me more so than him) that our lack o... Read more

Actually doing some meal preparation and liking it!

Thursday, May 02, 2013      2 comments

Two things coincided this week to have me actually fixing more meals for myself. My spouse has work or another obligation every evening this week. AND I got a CSA share from a local organic market so I have food I normally wouldn't. I looked ... Read more

Heading to a new job

Tuesday, July 10, 2012      5 comments

Next Monday I start a new job and I'm quite excited. It's still in the library field, in collection management. Essentially, I'll be doing purchasing of materials for a public library system - books, music CDs, movies, ebooks, databases, etc. ... Read more

Shaping Up

Tuesday, June 26, 2012      2 comments

That title goes for a lot in my life recently. I used to drink diet soda all day. I'd bring it to work in two-liter bottles and pour it into smaller bottles. I probably went through three 3-liter bottles a week. For about the last month now,... Read more

On Reading

Friday, January 06, 2012      3 comments

A couple of my Spark Friends have posted their "books read" list for 2011. I'll get around to that, too, as I like that idea. But I wanted to pose a question to the readers out there. My former boss said that he thought that people tended to... Read more

Our 43-pound chihuahua

Monday, November 28, 2011      6 comments

OK, so first off, she's not really a chihuahua. My husband and I joke about that because the group that rescued her had her listed as a chihuahua. (In their defense, she WAS really little when they got her!) She was brought from that group t... Read more

My brother-in-law is going to be OK

Thursday, November 17, 2011      2 comments

Yesterday morning my older brother-in-law called at a time when the phone rarely rings. Turns out he had had a heart attack and was in the hospital. Fortunately he called the paramedics when he started to feel bad rather than laying down for a... Read more

It's getting to be a black cat kind of time

Friday, October 28, 2011      3 comments

Happy Halloween and a SPECIAL Happy Halloween to all the black cats out there! We have six cats - four are solid black, one is a tuxedo, and one is orange. My husband jokes that I must be a powerful witch, what with all those black cats and re... Read more

Covered in fur

Monday, September 19, 2011      3 comments

I was able to keep my plans to visit with my friend. She has 14 cats and 2 dogs and I just love that I got so many dog and cat kisses. Most of the cats let me pet them but she has 4 that won't because one is almost feral and the other three a... Read more

Good news on the biopsy!

Thursday, September 08, 2011      2 comments

Some of you know that I had a thyroid fine needle biopsy done a couple of weeks ago. The results are that whatever that little BB-sized "thing" is on my thyroid is, it's benign. I'm to go back in a year for another sonogram. I am quite reliev... Read more

Thanks to everyone for your support over the recent months. I've been very much up and down with my fitness, largely because of small blips in my health, such as a bad cold, and also some depression related mostly to my husband. In one year, h... Read more
