I am not ready to be the eldest.

Sunday, March 29, 2015      5 comments

I can't believe how long it's been since I last blogged. I used to be quite regular about it. Working 7 days a week is taking a toll on me mentally. I come home too tired to string a sentence together. So much is going on. I walked into a g... Read more

2015 Goals, Not Resolutions

Thursday, January 01, 2015      5 comments

MICHCLEARY inspired me. This year, I have several big picture battles to win, some of which won't necessarily be part of my SP journey. But insofar as SP is concerned, I am going to log in every day, if only that, to stay connected and the rem... Read more

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

Sunday, December 07, 2014      3 comments

I don't do anything Christmas related, generally speaking, until after December 7. I was not alive when the event happened, but this day tugs at my heart like no other.... Read more

Short Comments and No Blogs

Tuesday, December 02, 2014      5 comments

I upgraded to a smartphone and am not feeling very smart. Aside from the differences of the phone itself, this also points to my eye-hand coordination issues and the fact that I have stubby fat fingers. Thus, my recent comments have been excee... Read more

A (Red, White and) Blue Day

Tuesday, November 11, 2014      6 comments

Today was Veterans Day - a day I usually take off in remembrance and contemplation. But I will be on "vacation" Thursday and Friday traveling to my beloved Mom Angell's celebration of life service. Tomorrow will be spent at an all day seminar ... Read more

In Tears - Prayers Requested

Wednesday, October 15, 2014      8 comments

Home sick today, but that pales in comparison to the email I just received. Mom Angell is failing, is not expected to live more than a few days. I ask for prayers for her, her caregivers and all of the family. I am supposed to be at a sem... Read more

An Odd NSV

Saturday, October 11, 2014      6 comments

I've been making poor choices with food and with my time lately. But this week, I started to turn things around. Drinking more water, eating somewhat better and at least having a passing familiarity with portion control. Today, my slack... Read more

I Need to Forgive

Monday, September 29, 2014      5 comments

The title might lead you to think this is going to be a long and deeply introspective blog. I could write one of those if I chose. There's at least one in me. But I don't have the mental or emotional energy to approach that right now. A ... Read more

No Corporate Challenge for Me

Sunday, September 14, 2014      10 comments

I spent 4 hours or so at Kaiser today when a chronic and intermittent pain in my foot worsened. It's swollen and sore, spasms of hot pain and feels as if something is broken. Tuesday is the corporate challenge walk around AT&T Park where t... Read more

Maia died on her first birthday. She'd spent most of her year of life in the NICU. Like her older sister, she was born with some pretty awful heart defects. Her older sist... Read more

W-A-A-Y Too Much Going On and Yet, Not Enough

Thursday, September 04, 2014      7 comments

Here it is almost 2 months since my last blog. I have not been as active on SP. A lot going on, things I could blog about but I have been too tired to string a sentence together. Then, I have been running out of internet access on my data pla... Read more

Please Pray for Bill, Carmen and Paul

I came home from work tonight to learn that the coroner called my partner today to let him know they found his younger brother's body this morning. He died suddenly and the siblings are reeling. They already lost another brother several years ... Read more
