It's time to throw out the rest of that Halloween candy and make a plan for staying on track from now through the beginning of January. If you want to join this challenge, and I hope you do, then simply copy and paste the text below into your ow... Read more
Election Day Hodge Podge
As I end the day, I am hungry, but I have eaten all I can eat today.
I got the tough project finished today - at least the first part. Now I wait for the responses and keep going on other things. My supervising attorney was at a seminar... Read more
THE GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT!
Today was an interesting day that faded into a tense evening iced with euphoric surreal joy. I mentioned briefly yesterday that I was going to make increased cardio a goal for November. Today, the company newsletter came out with a very edited... Read more
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.
I ate 9 Tootsie Rol... Read more
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.
This... Read more
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
