Lost and Found

Monday, July 12, 2010      6 comments

It was hiding for a while. I'm not sure if it was under a rock, or perhaps in one of the cabinets way back under the sink, but it doesn't matter any more. I found it: my passion for life. I was caught up in one dimensional thinking, lettin... Read more

Case of the sickies

Thursday, July 08, 2010      6 comments

Feeling much better now --- but no gym and little movement for me today. I hope to be back to "normal" tomorrow. I was totally punked out this a.m. and even stayed home from work and a meeting. This too shall pass. Hope everyone is staying cool!... Read more

118 Days and 17 Minutes

Wednesday, July 07, 2010      12 comments

Alarm went off at 4:50am. I squished my head into the pillow. I really wanted that sleep, but there was a good possibility I would lay there and not be able to sleep anyway. I rolled half way over and prayed, "Jesus, let me get up and go, but I ... Read more

It All Starts Somewhere

Tuesday, July 06, 2010      9 comments

I don't think I'll have any trouble sucking down water today. Geez, it is hot and steamy today. I decided that I am going to try to leave my office when I want to eat. I did bring my lunch as I most often do, but I always eat at my desk. I get i... Read more

Sometimes, I am all for censorship. Not the kind where you're burning books because you disagree with the doctrine, but the kind where the description is superfluous to the story. Last night I was working and a patron told one of my staff that "... Read more

Never Say Never

Thursday, July 01, 2010      8 comments

One of my very best attributes is that I rarely give up on people. OK, sometimes this does not always work out the way I plan, but on a day like today, when a kid I have nurtured and mentored and tried really hard to help, shows me that he is li... Read more

Pretty Woman

Thursday, July 01, 2010      7 comments

Remember that movie with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere? One of my favorite lines from the movie is when she defiantly tells him, " I say who, I say where, I say how much." Ok, well, I am taking that same tact for myself. I get to make the decis... Read more

Cave Dweller

Wednesday, June 30, 2010      5 comments

I am not my spark best today, not by a long shot. I walked a smidge and have little excuse for not doing more. It is the perfect day outside!!! I have been hiding in my cave for the better part of the day. My office is tucked away under a s... Read more

54 Weeks

Monday, June 28, 2010      10 comments

In 54 weeks, I'll be climbing on the back of my hubby's Harley, going to Bike Week in Gettysburg, PA. This is one of those dreams that he's had. This gives me time to work on my plan of action and get to a place where I feel comfortable on the b... Read more

I'm from NJ

Friday, June 25, 2010      9 comments

Started talking to a colleague today that I have seen in passing many times. She wanted to know where I was from since she thinks I am very friendly. She couldn't believe that I am from the beautiful garden state (that's right bucko, NJ) since w... Read more

Out of the Blue

Thursday, June 24, 2010      8 comments

I got an email yesterday that blew my mind. Twenty years ago, I worked for a company that I loved dearly. My job included answering phones to perform a very mundane task from a centralized location. It meant I talked to the same people from 350 ... Read more

What Should I Eat?

I have dieted my way through life with the best of them. I remember being on WW as a young teen and several times since. On LA something, OA, Stop the Insanity, Richard Simmons, cabbage soup, fenfen, and I am trying the Belly Fat Cure right now,... Read more

First Day of Summer, 2010

Monday, June 21, 2010      11 comments

The client told me that if I could not find parking out in front of their building, that there was also some spots in the back. I told her not to worry, that I would be walking. It is hot out there. The sun is shining. It's the first day of summ... Read more

Things My Dad Taught Me

Sunday, June 20, 2010      9 comments

Most things I know about my Dad aren't because he told me. I saw them. I learned. My dad is not demonstrative, but he is a do-er. I have always said that. Nothing is more important that your integrity and character. Your word is all you hav... Read more
