Christmas Eve and a Gift (or 5) For Me

Friday, December 24, 2010      5 comments

Nonie_C posted a blog yesterday about giving yourself 5 self-care presents. She said write them down, wrap them up as 5 presents under the tree and unwrap them for Christmas. Then, take that wrapping paper and cut it in smaller pieces of paper... Read more

Little Christmas Eve

Thursday, December 23, 2010      4 comments

I was 13 when I met my dad and I met the rest of that side of the family slowly over the next few years. Their holiday traditions were different from those of my stepfather and his family and it took me a while to understand the beauty of both ... Read more

Giving Thanks For an Early Christmas Blessing!

Wednesday, December 22, 2010      4 comments

I have felt like crap all week because my lower back is chronically hurting and, whether it's the pain or something else, the nausea has been worse than the pain. I usually head for carbs when my tummy feels off, but I did not take the full plu... Read more

Shoes Keep Falling (Please Pray for Wendy)

Wednesday, December 22, 2010      8 comments

I mentioned a few blogs ago that the season of layoffs has returned. I have not been counting, but I would guess about a dozen people have been let go. I don't know that they are all layoffs or how the departures are characterized, but it's ha... Read more

A "Moderate" Day

Monday, December 20, 2010      1 comments

Today was a "moderate" day - nothing about it was particularly exceptional, good or bad. Early in the morning, I discovered the reason for the lower back pain, moodiness and unreasonable hunger. (TOM). Everywhere I went at work today, th... Read more

How Did This Happen?

Sunday, December 19, 2010      3 comments

This morning, I discovered that I made an error when I entered my weight last week. When I recorded it this morning, an email from my friend feed showed I had lost over 1K pounds! I went back and looked. I had forgotten a decimal! Unfortunatel... Read more

Wizard of Oz - Spark Style

Sunday, December 19, 2010      6 comments

Tonight was TNT's broadcast of the digitally enhanced version of The Wizard of Oz. I did not see all of it, but what I did see was gorgeous. Every time I see it, I get something more out of it. It's hard to believe that it was first released ... Read more

Holiday Challenge & Stopping the Pity Party

Friday, December 17, 2010      6 comments

MY LIFE FEELS UNBALANCED WHEN I DON'T take a walk every day IT ALSO FEELS OUT OF BALANCE IF I EAT too little vegetables and too many carbohydrates - any time I eat out of balance. MY BIGGEST CHALLENGE RIGHT NOW IS BALANCING everything.... Read more

13,257: Look How Far I Have Come! (Thanks, Nonie_C!)

Thursday, December 16, 2010      9 comments

13,257 is what my pedometer says I did today! I walked as much as I could today knowing that it is going to be very stormy for the next few days. I looked for every opportunity to move that I could! I took two bags of food to donate to the food... Read more

No Pedometer, Work and Spreading the Spark

Thursday, December 16, 2010      7 comments

I forgot to wear my pedometer today! I hate it when I forget it. I had to estimate what I did. Work is completely nonstop. I have not even had time to address my Christmas cards because I come home completely exhausted. But it has had ... Read more

Decided to Live Victoriously

Tuesday, December 14, 2010      3 comments

I decided I was going to live victoriously today. What did I do? Nothing differently, but I had a very positive attitude. I usually do, but today was a high energy day and I needed it. The workload is nuts and it does not feel as if it wi... Read more

A Breathless Day

Monday, December 13, 2010      5 comments

I registered for the Alternative Dispute Resolution certificate class today. I've been intending to do so for a while, but I had to juggle some things and scrounge for the money. The company is not covering this, it is all me. I view it as a ... Read more

A Day of Friendship, Food and the Arts (Scale, Too!)

Sunday, December 12, 2010      3 comments

I spent most of the day with a very good friend and her partner. We met as coworkers years ago at one company. She left the company and I lost track of her for a few years. We got reacquanted at a holiday lunch. She is the one who brought me... Read more

Saturday Workday & Feeling Huge

Saturday, December 11, 2010      5 comments

I thought I was going to put in about 3 hours at work today and it ended up being almost twice that without me achieving as much as I thought I would. I picked up the work that Yvonne could not do (she's worked from home while sick, but, when y... Read more

Validated! WooHoo! What a Day! A Prayer Request

Friday, December 10, 2010      5 comments

Today was something else! In yesterday's blog, I mentioned the awkward situation with the manager who was upset that I included his boss on an email about some legal research I had done. I included the VP not because he's the boss but because h... Read more
