I Love the Feeling of Today!
Today was not what I expected, but I am exhilarated at the end of the day. It took me all day to do the research for our outside counsel. I worked through lunch, taking time only to walk down to the cafe for the free fruit that I never ate. T... Read more
Happy Hanukkah! Internet, Work and General Thoughts
Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends! I forgot to say that at work today and wish I had remembered. I never seem to remember about Hanukkah until after the fact...
My internet connection at home is down. I am waiting to receive the refurbi... Read more
Aspire and Inspire (Spark Team)
Thanks, JakeandNellie, for inviting me to this team. I love the name and the idea!
I was a complete couch potato for most of the weekend. Tendonitis, cold (limited heat) and general lethargy. I had to get back on track today and did so w... Read more
Three Bites, Spark Goodies and Couch Potato
I felt very lethargic today. My Achilles tendon is screaming at me and I have absolutely no energy. So I did not do the walk I intended to do (or anything else for that matter).
I decided I was going to send all of my Sparkfriends a goodi... Read more
My Cup Runneth Over
What a year this has been! I have been thinking about my holiday newsletter and know that it will contain good news and bad news as I reflect on this year. Tonight, however, is for the positives, the reasons why I am grateful. In no particular... Read more
Today Was Terrific!
I had a very interesting day today. The work was a little bit of everything and I had no chance to be bored!
Lunch was a meal at an Indian buffet - impossible to judge the food. I ate veggies and a little bit of protein, skipping as much ... Read more
Taking Care of Me & the Doctor's Scale
This morning, I woke up in excruciating pain that only lessoned after lots of water. I called the doc and asked for an appointment, hoping I could get one close to the time for my mammogram (routine). Long story short, I did. They did not fin... Read more
Last week, I was asked to put in some OT today for our IT department. They wanted me to do some validation testing. My boss and my VP both approved the OT. Friday, IT came and said they decided to move the testing to Monday! I just about fell... Read more
The 5K Fundraiser Walk
It took a bit to find the place where the walk was taking place. We took the wrong exit off the freeway and, then, when we got to the mall, it was, of course, on the other side. Nothing started on time. We were greeted by a crowd of high scho... Read more
Fundraiser Walk Tomorrow!
I had a very interesting day. It was also a frustrating day. I spent a good part of yesterday trying to find out what would happen to other data and processes if I changed one field on a customer record. No one could tell me and everyone told... Read more
Toastmasters and Steps!
I did not work late tonight not did I go to the paralegal meeting tonight. I was physically and mentally tired, so I came home.
I had not seen the notice yesterday that the SparkPeople site was going to be down yesterday evening and was st... Read more
It Feels as if I Have Made a Leap Forward
Feeling better really agrees with me! I feel better today than I have felt for a very long time. I had been feeling bored, drained, tired and run down long before I got the migraine and cold last week. I had not realized how badly I felt until... Read more
Connectivity Issues Have Kept Me on the Down-Low!
For the last few nights, I have been unable to use the internet at home. I can get on, but the pages won't load. My wireless broadband card gets really hot. I am going to buy one of those cooling things for my laptop and see if that helps. O... Read more
Another Couch Potato Day
Another day of doing almost nothing. I felt worse today than I did yesterday. The lingering lack of energy is driving me nuts and is something I am not used to experiencing. I was very often tired when I worked 2 jobs and went to school, but ... Read more
Not Very Productive Today
I did not walk much today and did not do any other exercise. I ate sparingly, but I feel much better than I have for at least a week. Did the weekly grocery shopping, so I am home for the rest of the weekend unless I choose to go somewhere.
