Yvonne was hired to take a position I was vacating 4 years ago. I trained her for the job she does now and, in that process, we became friends. Over the years, we got closer and even went on weekend trips together. Through this time, she has ... Read more

My employer hosted the Area contest for humorous speech and evaluation contests. A coworker entered and won the humorous speech contest! I was thrilled! I came in second in the evaluation contest and later learned that it was a tie. The s... Read more

I have not blogged since learning about Gayle's death. Saturday was the long ago planned lunch in honor of my fried Ruby who died this summer. Her birthday is in a few days, so a bunch of us wanted to get together and eat in her honor. It was... Read more

What I Could Not Say Yesterday and How Today Went...

Wednesday, September 22, 2010      6 comments

Yesterday, I wore a huge sweater all day. I overheat easily, so I rarely wear a long sleeved shirt let alone another layer. I was not cold, though the weather is starting to be changeable, so it did not appear odd in the morning. Why the swea... Read more

I Hardly Know What to Say

Tuesday, September 21, 2010      11 comments

All day long, I have been composing a blog in my head. I used to blog every day, but have now fallen into an old lifestyle habit. My family knows when I go silent that things are not going well. So it is now. I don't have the energy to type ... Read more

US Constitution Day!

Friday, September 17, 2010      5 comments

09/17/1789 - the day the US Constitution was signed! That was the highlight of the day. I have felt lousy most of this week and have been inhaling carbs in an effort to make me feel better. I don't think I will weigh tomorrow... My te... Read more

All Hands Meeting With New CEO and Picnic Munchies

Tuesday, September 14, 2010      6 comments

Today was the first All Hands meeting with our new CEO. I usually sit in the front of the room so I can hear and see. But I knew everyone would expect me to do so and I wanted to send a message that the change of CEO is not something I take li... Read more

Executive Reorganization and Picnic Snacks

Monday, September 13, 2010      3 comments

Our new CEO started the week with an over-the-weekend email. He has promoted one VP to take his old position, created a new VP position and moved some departments to now report to a different VP. My take away is that he wants to hit the ground... Read more

Banana Slug

Sunday, September 12, 2010      2 comments

California's state mollusk (or something) is the banana slug, so called because it is often BRIGHT yellow. I guess the yellow is so bright because it gives the false message that the creature is poisonous. I felt slow, sluggish and nonspecific... Read more

.3 Increase Disappointing, Not Defeated

Saturday, September 11, 2010      4 comments

I weighed in this morning before I saw the advice from a Sparkfriend to avoid the scale today. She suggested, rightly I think, that the scale would be up because of the sodium increase from the picnic food yesterday. .3 is not terrible, but it... Read more

I Blew It!

Friday, September 10, 2010      9 comments

I appreciate the words of encouragement and advice about the picnic. The advice was to eat prior to the picnic - check. The other advice was to have fun and eat lightly. Partially done. I overate big time and it was mostly mindless eating. E... Read more

My boyfriend's sister is undergoing radiation treatment for cancer. I think it's uterine cancer. Scared. Terrified. I wish Atlanta were not clear across the country! Of course, they have no money. I am not even sure she has insurance. The... Read more

Working in Movement in Small Moments

Wednesday, September 08, 2010      5 comments

Yesterday, I came to work to learn that my department was having lunch brought in for a team event. I knew today was going to be lunch in as well for a mandatory training session. I was actually disappointed - not only did I not get my lunchti... Read more
