The light dawned late. On Saturday, I took a decongestant pill and a swig of cough syrup in an effort to beat this cold into submission. Generally, I take half of a normal dosage for even over the counter drugs such as these were. I had no su... Read more

Sunday, January 09, 2011      5 comments

This cold is a doozy. I cannot walk straight, cannot think straight. I think the combination of the cold meds are not doing me any favors. I have taken nothing today and my head is still quite foggy. We had errands to do today, but I don't f... Read more

As I write this, the Jets have just beat the Colts and the Saints lost to the Seahawks earlier today. I feel like a jinx - the teams I like are losing! Actually, having lived in Alaska, the Seahawks are one of my teams, too, but I was rooting f... Read more

I stayed home sick again today. I slept a lot and did not do much else. A coworker emailed me with the news that a manager has been let go. She was not well liked, but I hate to see anyone lose their job. Of course, I don't know the details ... Read more

A few days ago, I really overdid it housekeeping and hurt myself in some weird spots. My left arm hurts if I move it or attempt to carry anything of any weight. Today, I was glad to get back to walking at work, forgetting that the cafe was clo... Read more

A friend of mine gave me some money for Christmas and I used it at Ross Dress for Less when I found the Fit and Fresh food containers. Tomorrow is the first day of work for the new year, so I prepared my breakfast and lunch tonight (partially).... Read more

Tuesday, December 28, 2010      4 comments

Day 3 of my 28 day plan. I "saved" 180 calories by not eating them and burned either 150 or 88 depending on if you believe the SP site or my pedometer. Either way, I did not function at a 500 calorie deficit, which is what I need to do every d... Read more
