We had 48 children come by tonight, more than we have had in about 3 years, maybe even put together. We gave out those glow bracelets along with the candy and they were a great hit with the children and their parents.

My Chili Was a Hit + One Tootsie Roll
Today was not a day when a lot of work was done. I was on the Halloween committee for the Legal Department and we were in a contest with the Marketing Department for the best floor design. There were also costume contests. I don't even like H... Read more
Nobody On and Two Outs (8th Inning Thoughts)
Today was a better day. It was peppered with coworkers making comments about last night's Giants' win in Game 1 of the World Series! That was fun! Yesterday was a day of bouncing between fires or alligators or other analogies for urgent/hot tas... Read more
Tony Bennett, Giants Baseball, Toastmasters and Work (WHEW!)
As I write this, Tony Bennett is singing "God Bless America" during the 7th inning stretch at Game 1 of the World Series (AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants). How surreal! His voice is still smooth! The Giants always play his "I Left M... Read more
Soup is a Wonder Food!
When I woke up this morning, I did not want to get out of bed, but I felt ok, so I eventually dragged myself up and out the door for work. I had not felt great yesterday afternoon but I thought it was just the soreness from the yoga. A few yea... Read more
Orange Monday and Yoga!
I wore my new Giants gear to work even though Monday is not casual dress day. I got lots of positive and envious feedback! it was fun! Orange is not a color I would wear except in support of the San Francisco Giants because orange is a color th... Read more
I Did My Part for the Local Economy
Thank you, everyone, for your comments on my blog from yesterday. It was a really low day. Today was not a stellar day, but it was, in terms of choices, better than yesterday. ... Read more
Ready to Quit and Other Musings
My mother's birthday was this week and I did not comment about it on the day or until now. As bad as our relationship was, the fact that we have not had a relationship since 1971 has been equally bad. This was her choice. She missed out on se... Read more
The Area Contest
I did not hear back from my supervising attorney today so I can guess that she is saving it up for our Tuesday meeting. I DID, however, find an executed document that she wanted, so that may soften the criticism on the statute search.

Tortilla Chips and Frustrations
I spent most of today on the same statute search as yesterday. Eventually, I emailed my supervising attorney and reported what I did not find. I spent the rest of the day flinching every time I looked at my email, but she has not responded. E... Read more
Statutes, Binge, Baseball and Walk
I spent most of the day reading statutes, which I hate to do. I find it mind-numbingly boring. But I have to find the info for my attorney. Panic is starting to set in. What if I can't find what she wants? I will appear stupid and she won't ... Read more
My head feels better, but my stomach hurts when I eat.
I got in over 10K steps without a lunch time walk. Not sure how I managed that, but I was busy all day. I am still feeling really overwhelmed, but I just realized tomorrow is Wednes... Read more
Salsa and Garlic Bread
Thank you for the wonderful thoughts and SparkGoodies today. I am fighting a cold/sinus infection/ear infection - probably due to the season change and being in a hot-cold-hot-cold situation on Saturday at the seminar. At times, the room was h... Read more
Couch Potato Day & a Prayer Request
No exercise today. Totally drained. I did what I absolutely had to do and no more. Going to bed early. Back on track tomorrow. The day will be busy and I hope to take part of the day off, but it very likely won't happen.

Roller Coaster Day
In the middle of the night last night, BF woke me up to let me know he needed a ride in the morning to retrieve his bicycle that he had locked up about 15 miles from home. I had already realized I was going to have to leave home very early so a... Read more
