I planned last night for 2 pieces of pizza. I ate them. I enjoyed them, mostly. The crust was a little sturdy, but still mostly enjoyable. And then I stopped. I think I threw hubby for a loop by just having those two slices. Nope. I planned for ... Read more
Point A to Point B

Why I did not eat chocolate (tonight)
I couldn't get off the couch. Sure, I can blame it on sagging couch cushions, a lack of strength in my legs, socks sliding on the worn carpet, or I could face facts.

When Downhill is Uphill
Yesterday, a staff member walked out the door in slow motion, or so it seemed.
After she left, I was exclaiming, "nooooooo" as I realized an important document was left behind.
I had a lot on my plate yesterday (and, in fact today as we... Read more
This just in! Newsflash!

Where Have I Been?
Truth be told, I am not sparking less, but I am sparking less here. I am sparking more in my own life, doing things day by day that I see are mattering to me more again. Whew! For a long time, I didn't see any change happening, and finally it is... Read more
