A (Red, White and) Blue Day

Tuesday, November 11, 2014      5 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

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

A Happy False Alarm

Saturday, June 21, 2014      6 comments

My cell phone rang after I got to work. Usually, it's my partner and he knows I can't take calls at job #2. But it was my beloved stepmother in another time zone. It was early for her, so I said I was at work and she hung up. After a moment,... Read more

"Be Careful What You Wish For"

Friday, May 30, 2014      10 comments

Four years ago next month, I graduated summa cum laude with my AA in Paralegal Studies. I am more proud of that than my BA in English that I earned years ago. I put a lot more into this degree and was sure it was my ticket to financial success... Read more

Memorial Day is not a "Happy Holiday" kind of day. I cringed when I heard someone say that on the radio yesterday. My brother is currently on his 2nd tour of duty in Afghanistan, on loan again from the Navy to the Army. The last time he w... Read more

Syttende Mai

Sunday, May 18, 2014      4 comments

May 17 is Norwegian Constitution Day. I wish I had grown up knowing more about my heritage and my grandfather's native language. By the time I met him, he was forgetting his English and I knew almost no Norwegian. Some of that was the time an... Read more
