I Am Not the Token Cripple and Other Thoughts

Thursday, April 01, 2010      4 comments

One of the things I did not mention in my blog last night was my primary reason for feeling blue. A coworker, someone I trust, told me her boss said that management went through every employee's name last year when they laid off a large number ... Read more

Slippery Slope Towards Depression But Not Using Food as Medication

Thursday, April 01, 2010      8 comments

I moved to the Bay Area in late 1986 and immediately found a job at a small privately held services company. I ended up working there for nearly 15 years during which time I held 7 or 8 jobs. In a sense, I grew up in that company. I left that... Read more

Swirling Brain Means Diminished Focus

Wednesday, March 31, 2010      3 comments

Today was a very strange day. Over the past few days, I have received boxes at home, but had not had a chance to open them until today. Turns out my brother sent books to me for my birthday! One was a book I really wanted and the other two wou... Read more

My girls went jogging at lunch time!

Monday, March 29, 2010      8 comments

This is an earlier-in-the-day post for me because my lunchtime exercise was one that made me laugh! I had been on my feet most of the morning, carrying files here and there up and down the stairs and, when I had to use the elevator, I used that ... Read more

Couch Potato Day is Not Always a Bad Thing

Sunday, March 28, 2010      5 comments

Surprisingly, I did not sleep well last night. I should have after that glorious hike! When I did get up, I was STIFF! My right arch hurt for most of the day and it was just hard to move at all. My plan to do a bunch of errands was torpedoed, ... Read more

Today was...

Sunday, March 28, 2010      2 comments

I hardly know where to begin. Do I post at all? Do I share only about my activities today? Or do I dedicate today in memoriam? Or shall I attempt to cover everything that today was? Today was the planned delayed birthday day with my partne... Read more

Tears, A Hug, Food and I'm Numb

Friday, March 26, 2010      8 comments

This morning, I sent an email to my friend asking if our rescheduled-from-last-week ;unch date was on. She responded affirmatively and then called me to tell me that a former coworker died yesterday after a very, very, very long battle with bre... Read more

I hope this is the worst performance day of my SP life.

Thursday, March 25, 2010      7 comments

Thanks to you SparkFriends who commented on yesterday's blog. Your support is deeply appreciated! I fell into an old habit last night: I stayed up too late because I was not tired. Perhaps I was not tired because I did not want to go to sleep... Read more

Kirsti, Delilah, Frankie, Food and Exercise

Wednesday, March 24, 2010      5 comments

Today was my cousin Kirsti's birthday, her second in heaven. She would have been 45 today. She died in a solo car wreck on her way to work December 30, 2008. The youngest of my generation, she should not have been the 2nd to go. She left 3 c... Read more

Day on Auto Pilot

Monday, March 22, 2010      3 comments

I didn't want to get up this morning, which, in my new SP life is new. I went to work and quickly realized that I was tired. I had already had coffee, I had already started water and had breakfast and still could not get the brain in gear. I ... Read more

Running - Day One

Sunday, March 21, 2010      5 comments

This morning started with a cup of Peruvian coffee, a nice light roast. Not one you'd drink when you need a coffee jolt, but great for a Sunday morning. Then I put on my new shorts, new socks, new running shoes and my new sports bra (shirt was... Read more

An Odd Day

Saturday, March 20, 2010      8 comments

Thank you, SparkFriends, for your birthday wishes! Most of my family has been silent today. I had a list of things to do today and did not complete all of them. What I did do was go to SportsAuthority to see about the running shoe sale. I... Read more

My New Year's Eve

Saturday, March 20, 2010      6 comments

Today was an excellent day! I am not 100% yet, but that does not matter. I didn't have a dedicated walk, but I did a lot of walking throughout the day and used the stairs at every opportunity. The fact that I got winded a little and my legs st... Read more

Another Day on Hold

Thursday, March 18, 2010      5 comments

As I was stepping out of the shower this morning, I remembered I sit on the same floor, only a few cubes away, from a young woman expecting twins. I called my boss in our Knoxville office and asked what he thought I should do. I don't have the... Read more

The 10% Experiment - Day Three (Experiment on Hold)

Wednesday, March 17, 2010      2 comments

For the second day in a row, I am way below on food. Nothing sounded edible. I called the advice nurse and eventually got to do a phone consult with a doctor (my primary was not available). I told the doctor that I've had shingles 3 times and... Read more
