Umm... okay...

The human body is strange. I cut back a little on the exercise (not a lot, but some), and increased my calories (not a lot, but some), and... I lost more weight. This is counter intuitive. I should have gained weight. Oh well. Now my proble... Read more
Re-establishing contact
Monday, March 27, 2017      9 comments

I picked up the phone today and reached out, after about 4 days of email only interaction with the world (plus you guys). I talked to my BFF, Jen. She is easy to talk to, and I enjoy our conversations. We see the same neurologist for our migr... Read more
Noisy neighbors

Cooper was a little more interested in walking today. I got him out for three walks. We got a fairly late start on the day, because my annoying downstairs neighbors kept me up until after 3am. I called in yet another complaint to building man... Read more
A long run
Saturday, March 25, 2017      13 comments

I went for a long run today (after the rain tapered off some), and it helped center me, but I am still annoyed with myself and the world. Cooper was pretty uninterested in walking today for most of the day. I got him out for a total of three m... Read more
Feeling out of sorts
Friday, March 24, 2017      12 comments

Yep, the grumpies are back. I just don't want to deal with people... including my own whining. Normally I go to my parents' house on Saturdays, but I have decided to stay home tomorrow. I am just not good company right now. I am not certain ... Read more
Little things add up

I continually work on establishing and maintaining my boundaries. Today my neighbor came over to ask me to "help" her take the battery out the smoke detector in her apartment because it was dying and chirping constantly. By "helping", she mean... Read more
The maintenance guy and a well behaved dog...

Well the maintenance man finally showed up at 9am (he told me yesterday he would be here at 8), So, I took Cooper out for an hour walk when Mike got here. When we got back we sat over at my neighbor, Patty's, apartment for another hour, as he ... Read more
stuff happens...

I got up early and walked Cooper for an hour. When we got back I hopped in the shower, and had hot water... for a whole five minutes. Sigh. The breaker on my hot water tank has been tripping about once a week for a little over a month now, an... Read more
Getting there... slowly
Monday, March 20, 2017      12 comments

I woke up before my alarm this morning. I even remembered to turn it off before it went off, so I didn't have to hear it at all. That was nice. I had to get an annoying alarm clock, because I am not a morning person, and anything gentle I wou... Read more
The "grumpies"
Sunday, March 19, 2017      13 comments

I am just feeling out of sorts with the world this weekend. I am hoping it passes. Even running didn't alleviate the grumpies today. Usually the endorphins burn off the crankiness, and I feel refreshed, even if I am tired. But not today. I ... Read more
Lunch with mom and dad
Saturday, March 18, 2017      11 comments

Saturdays I make lunch at mom and dad's. Today was spaghetti and meatballs, with a side of broccoli. Dad just mixed his broccoli into the sauce. LOL. The meatballs were delish, and I did not overcook the pasta. Plenty of garlic in both the ... Read more
Plodding along
Friday, March 17, 2017      12 comments

It was actually a fairly pleasant day. Mostly because I avoided people. I took Cooper out for his walks, and checked my mail, but other than that I didn't really talk to anyone but my mom on the phone. We had to confer on tomorrow's menu. We... Read more
Trying not to dwell
Thursday, March 16, 2017      16 comments

I live in a apartment building reserved for the elderly and disabled. Unfortunately this means that most of us do not work. I keep to myself, and really only talk to my immediate neighbor or one woman on the first floor. There is a reason for... Read more
Slow day, snow day
Tuesday, March 14, 2017      9 comments

I got up sort of early so I could call and cancel my appointment this morning. Turns out they were about to call ME and cancel it, so I saved them a phone call. LOL. It was cold today and snowy...though not as snowy as predicted. The low was... Read more
Hello again
Monday, March 13, 2017      14 comments

I have been absent a few days. It felt weird, but it was necessary. Part of this journey is knowing when to take a breather, right? Not just from exercise, but in our lives. I needed to just BE. Saturday lunch with mom and dad was good. I ... Read more
