Our new writing group has our second meeting tonight, and I can't wait! I'm proud to be a charter member of this little group and look forward to growing as a writer. I've never written much for fun, self-expression, or to communicate ideas just... Read more
Today is my fourth day of going to the health club, and it's already feeling like a (good) habit. I haven't missed a water aerobics class yet. I no longer have any anxiety about the check-in policy, changing in public, not "getting" the moves ri... Read more
Wow! From the time I get up until the time I leave work for the day, I go non-stop! No wonder I'm so tired at the end of the day, particularly at this time of year. The senior's are turning in make-up work faster than I can correct it! No worrie... Read more

I'm fighting some serious depression issues, which I believe I'm prone to in the spring months, perhaps exascerbated by losing Rusty. Phil's being very supportive and helpful. I'm determined to analyze, work through, and prepare preventative str... Read more
Worried about . . .
I'm worried about my continued inability to complete my work. Do I want to get fired? I think I may need to reflect, analyze, and maybe even ask for help. Scary stuff!... Read more
I inherited Jackson fron my good friend, Karrie when she had to move to an apartment. He's a sweet seven-year-old golden retriever mix and the most submissive creature I've ever met. He fits in well around here because he goes with the flow and ... Read more
