Today was oddly beautiful and beautifully odd. Some highlights:
* Warm temperatures (really rare this time of year)
* A jog on the beach where I got too hot
* Time outside with the kitty
* Massage & chiropractic
* The ... Read more
I was having a hard morning. Grief was on the front of my radar. Another former employee who is now homeless came looking for help yesterday. Temporary housing was sorted out, but I found myself distressed for him and praying in the night. P... Read more
I've read how much difference sleep makes in a weight loss and health journey. I'm usually pretty disciplined about sleep, so I didn't realize how much it mattered.
Then I went through a week or so of bad sleep. It's not that I wasn't g... Read more
Technology: Friend or Foe?
For years, I have been using the pedometer on my iPod. I've also used it for work out music, especially with working into jogging. I'd pick songs by their length to mark out the different intervals.
This week my iPod started going weird... Read more
I Did It!
Today was the first time that I jogged without walking intervals. I DID IT!!! I paused when I needed to ford a little creek. It's easier to pick which lumps of sand to jump between, when you're moving slower. But other than that, I jogged fo... Read more

I organize a lot of stuff at work. Often when I get home, I just don't want to be organized anymore. But then I mess up life, and wish I hadn't.
Yesterday I decided to try something new. I'm getting the pieces for doing my taxes and I d... Read more
I've spent a lifetime with negative thinking. For the first 25 years or so, it just ran me over like a semi-truck, because I didn't know any better. The rest of the time I've worked on learning skills to fight back.
I caught myself toni... Read more
Since my parents were coming here to the beach for Christmas, I did not go and see my sister. The holiday is always crazy for her, so I almost felt like I was doing her a favor. She was kind of disappointed, so I promised I would visit soon. ... Read more
Instrument of Peace
The last few days have been powerful awkward. Jerk has been in my space. (See my 1/8/16 blog if you need to know who that is.) He's my backyard neighbor, so I've seen him in the yard. His housekeeping crew cleans my office, so I've seen him ... Read more
The Gift of Planning
With the stress and grief at work, I've needed to be more careful about getting rest. One morning out of nowhere, it hit me that I should plan and prep dinner ahead of time. From then on, I've been having dinner planned out and the prep work d... Read more
In a blog a couple of days ago, I asked the question: "Why do I punish me?" Somebody was mean and I sabotaged my goals as a reaction. I really did not intend to come across as beating myself up. I was trying to figure it out so I could fix it... Read more
This has been a nice rest day. I slept in... went to church... took a walk... ate within range, except for fat... read books... plan to turn in early. I hope that you all have a lovely evening!... Read more
Jewels has developed a habit over the last few weeks. When I'm sad and thinking downhearted thoughts, she comes up to me and makes a chirping noise that sounds like, "PRRR". It took a little time for me to figure out what was going on. Once I... Read more
Why Do I Punish Me?
On the tail of a crazy day at work, something bad happened. A new young employee, who didn't know Scott, was going on and on about how he was selfish to commit suicide. He was trying to tell me not to grieve the fact that I offered to cover th... Read more
