Without going into the gory details, suffice it to say that yesterday by two in the afternoon I had probably used up all my calories for the day. Let's call it a cooking mishap. My tendency in a situation like this is to write the day off, just ... Read more
the quest continues
So I'm still trying to replace the ideal exercise situation I had during my five-month stay in Columbus: a combined strength/aerobics class held every morning a mile's walk away, with an instructor who was very insistent on correct form and who ... Read more
Well, once again my imaginings don't coincide with reality. The couple I painted the portrait for are professional musicians, and I was imagining my painting hanging in their gallery-like livingroom where lots of artsy people would see it and wa... Read more

You know how certain little moments in your life just stay with you, even though they may not have been anything important?
It's 1978, I'm 28 years old and have drifted down to Austin, Texas where I'm waitressing. It's still a very cool, hi... Read more
Yesterday afternoon I was driving home from a very nice lunch with a woman from my temple, we had sat and gabbed for 2 1/2 hours nonstop in a little Indian buffet and I really liked her. Nothing was particularly bothering me except maybe some ba... Read more
I watched a little online video yesterday about correct snow-shoverling position. They warn you not to swing the shovel too high when you empty it, just move it sideways. Well guess what, that's not an option when you're emptying it onto a bank ... Read more
Well, I had a pretty busy week scheduled. Today, aerobics class and state car inspection so I can get new tags before someone tickets me. Tomorrow, meet with trainer at the Y for the first of my three free training sessions, then meet woman from... Read more
Yep, definitely a blizzard
Elliot has been glued to the window all afternoon, does not quite know what to make of this.
Not even close to over
I can't figure this lawyer out at all. When I first met her in her office last June, she said this was such a simple divorce, with nothing to contend but my 401k, that if he got an attorney his attorney would just call her and they'd settle it o... Read more
divorce hearing tomorrow
My lawyer is supposed to be meeting with his lawyer tomorrow afternoon for a pretrial hearing to try to reach a settlement, and I'm trying not to dwell on it but I'm pretty much a nervous wreck. I'm filled with dread and anxiety about whether my... Read more
I'm getting where I can paint longer, maybe because I'm not trying to make myself. Today I worked for about 5 hours with breaks. Twice I thought I was done for the day and washed up my brushes, then changed my mind and went back to it.
This... Read more
Darn it, just hit the wrong key and my blog disappeared. I hate that.
Anyway, this Y is very nice, costs a whole lot less than the one in Ohio for some reason, and I get three free sessions with a trainer in the fitness room. All the classe... Read more
So, I've reached that point again. I've been good all week, my rings feel looser, and I'm pretty sure if I step on the scale I'll be back down to my current holding weight of 152. But I'm not going to do it, and here's why. I realized lately tha... Read more
I'm starting to get a grip on this most nights. Three-pronged attack:
1) Focusing on filling up more at dinner, right now with vegetable-loaded soups.
2) When I decide it's time for my budgeted evening snack, I make myself wait another... Read more
This morning my blood pressure is normal and I weigh 2 1/2 pounds less, so I guess water and salt were involved. But I'm still wiped out and not going to make it to the painting group with the model that I've been so looking forward to. Oh well,... Read more
