Saturday, April 14, 2012      5 comments

Thank you, Sparkfriends, who commented on yesterday's blog. My mood is better today even though my circumstances are not. The Centennial: This morning, I had a wonderful cup of coffee and gave my cats their favorite treats as a tribute... Read more

Is it Wrong?

Friday, April 13, 2012      5 comments

Is it a negative affirmation, a perpetuation of negativity if I say that I am struggling? If I recount all the struggles, does that feed into some kind of karma that means they will continue to occur? If yes, then I am doomed. I am as stuck as ... Read more

I Got My Car Back - For Now

Tuesday, April 10, 2012      4 comments

My mechanic has his own shop - it is not a dealership repair shop - and I trust him. For me, that's big. I have experienced the stereotypical horror stories that you hear about with women at dealerships whether sales or service, so finding Eri... Read more

After yesterday's great news that my Dallas coworkers came through the tornadoes unscathed, today I have more reasons to be thankful. Thank you, MISSY455, for your tip about my callus. I HOPE it works! I won't get my car back from rep... Read more

Wow! It Feels Great!

Wednesday, April 04, 2012      3 comments

I was on a conference call with a number of people including the attorney whose daughter is a patient at St. Jude's. Madeleine is two and it was wonderful hearing her laugh in the background - I am so thankful that she's not sick with the chemo... Read more

Stressed but not Stuffing My Face (Yet!)

Thursday, March 29, 2012      5 comments

My 2000 New Beetle is in the shop. Don't know what's wrong except that it sounds, smells and feels funny and almost all of the dash lights are on. Sounds expensive and I will be renting a car for far too long. It may be time to replace the ca... Read more

Those of you who've followed my story recently know that my first grade teacher died earlier this year at the age of 97! We have known each other for nearly 50 years. This past weekend was my cousin's birthday, the same cousin who died 3 years ... Read more

Partial Personnel Review Today

Friday, March 23, 2012      2 comments

My new haircut elicited 99% positive feedback, which was fun. I had not realized how much of an ego boost the haircut would be - not the compliments - they were gravy, but that knowledge inside that I looked good. As it happened, I did not... Read more

Showing Love

Thursday, March 22, 2012      5 comments

Last night, I read a blog on SparkPeople written by a member I'd never interacted with. She said some great things including that one of her daily goals is to show love. She also does something loving for herself. That got me thinking. I... Read more

Sunday, March 18, 2012      5 comments

I was craving a Rueben sandwich today and was thrilled to see Chef Meg's revised version of it today. But, I did not have one. After an unreal amount of sleep over the last two days, I feel much better. My fever broke, the sore throat and... Read more

I Am So Out of Shape and Other Saturday Thoughts

I had some errands to do this morning, including stopping at the eye doctor's to get an replacement receipt from my visit in December that I need to fax in to my flexpay provider before the end of the month or I might have to pay the IRS for it.... Read more

How a Compliment and SparkPeople Impacted My Choices This Evening

Thursday, March 08, 2012      8 comments

I had not planned to put in OT today, but had to given the challenges that arose today. When I finished work, I did not want to face traffic, so I started doing SP stuff. When I took a break and walked down the hall, someone asked me if I were... Read more

March is For Me!

Thursday, March 01, 2012      6 comments

I started an introspective blog and it disappeared. I am yawning, so life is conspiring to tell me it's time for "light's out". Today was productive and yet not on track - sort of sum of my SP journey! I'll come back to those introspective... Read more

Sunday, February 26, 2012      4 comments

I am finally back online! My home internet connection died on Monday evening and I FINALLY got it back up yesterday evening. My internet provider could not solve my problem and I got different info each time I called. Finally, I did some pokin... Read more
