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

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

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
Countdown Begins
Thursday, December 09, 2010      2 comments

There were 11 working days left in the year when today started. I never did the countdown until this year. My company shuts down between Christmas and New Years. The end of the year push is really draining and stressful. I don't know how I'l... Read more
Tasty Lunch and Layoff Season Has Returned
Wednesday, December 08, 2010      6 comments

I had chana masala at lunch (a dish with rice, chickpeas and tomatoes) at the work cafe. To that, I added some spicy black beans and it was a feast! I was full, my palate was joyful and I lasted until dinner... It's layoff season again. A... Read more
Pearl Harbor Day (December 7, 2010)
Tuesday, December 07, 2010      4 comments

For years, I have taken December 7 as a personal day off from work. This is a day of remembrance, of prayer, of sorrow and of honoring our veterans. Today was no different in that respect. It might be because I had two consecutive days ... Read more
