Yesterday was such a fabulous day (see yesterday's blog if you missed it!). Thanks, IXCHEL23, LNKSMOM & ISHIIGIRL for the Spark goodies. Your encouragement means a lot! I came in to work to learn the sad news that a former coworker ... Read more

Monday, August 09, 2010      9 comments

Yesterday, I saw a message board comment where someone was talking about taking money from her swear jar to put towards her new smaller person wardrobe. Something clicked. I decided to adopt that for my use. I have a coffee can at work where ... Read more
I Feel Really Fat Today!
Sunday, August 08, 2010      11 comments

The scale was way up this week. I did not care. I discovered that my relationship with food is not as healthy/improved as I thought it was. I even rediscovered Oreos. There are some foods that I have no business ever eating. Akin to any add... Read more

Yesterday (August 6) was Dad's birthday. Were he alive, he would have been 76. I was so fortunate to have been able to plan and attend his 70th birthday party. That year, I saw him twice. For that party and, in October, we met in Las Vegas w... Read more

Training Class & Exam
Wednesday, August 04, 2010      7 comments

I spent all day in a training class followed by an exam. This was for renewal of my notary public commission. The toughest part of the day is fighting to stay focused as the afternoon wears on. I am afraid I did not pass the test. I'll find ... Read more
On My Way Back
Tuesday, August 03, 2010      10 comments

First day more or less back after a week of wrenching pain. Ruby's funeral was yesterday. I ate too much at the buffet following the funeral but I did not care. I gave a lot of thought over this week because I have been through something like... Read more
Ruby's Visitation Tonight
Sunday, August 01, 2010      8 comments

Facebook took down the tribute page I created. I did not know that, by using my email address to set it up, they would see it as a duplicate. I created another page with a secondary email address, but it had some functionaliry issues. Ruby's ... Read more
Remembering Ruby, A Rainbow and a Primal Scream
Tuesday, July 27, 2010      11 comments

When the news came, I did not believe it. I still don't believe it. At first, I did not want to even speak the words. I am starting to realize that not saying the words perpetuates the harm and prevents healing. This may force me to look at ... Read more
Remembering Ruby, Full of Tears and Regrets
Monday, July 26, 2010      7 comments

Thank you, Sparkfriends, for your comments, for your goodies, for your compassion. I am in tears now, both because cogent thought is tough but also because you have touched me deeply. The scale says I lost 2 lbs this week, even with 3 days... Read more
Remembering Ruby (This One Really Hurts)
Saturday, July 24, 2010      22 comments

Why is the sun shining? Why is it a gorgeous day? It should be raining, it should be cold and gloomy outside, just as my heart is. The roads and streets should be full of cracking ice, cracking as if glass. My heart feels shattered like ice or... Read more

Back on my virtual journey. I was surprised to learn it had been more than 30 days since I had calculated my distance. This means I walked past Eureka, CA on July 15 and did not even know it! I'm not getting in as much mileage thanks to the te... Read more
A Virtual Vacation

I've been watching "Most Extreme Airports" on the History Channel as I've been sparking. The #1 most extreme airport is Lukla in Nepal. The airport is actually named for Sir Edmund Hilary and his sherpa guide, but they call it Lukla. The prog... Read more

I spent a couple of hours getting ready for The Call. Norma, our top lawyer (senior VP) wanted me in on the call with the requesting attorney to discuss the progress we've made in responding to his subpoena. I was very aware that this could ma... Read more
Carbo Load, Walking Wounded Little Girl and Admitting I Need Help
Sunday, July 18, 2010      16 comments

I did not blog yesterday. I did not have much to say and I was so tired, I could hardly keep my eyes open. I didn't want to go to sleep, but I had zero energy. We had pizza last night from Little Caesars. I ate four pieces, yes, four! It wa... Read more
