Not missing the brunt of the storm

Tuesday, January 27, 2015      12 comments

I woke at 3:30 figuring I'd better layer up and get out there. I am pleasantly surprised the is only about 2-3 inches of snow! We may get more later but for now I can sweep off my car and drive away to work. Read more

Snow, a chance to exercise

Monday, January 26, 2015      9 comments

I shoveled a couple of heavy inches of the white stuff Saturday morning. While I rested I found a snow calculator which I have to investigate a bit more. It gave me the weight of what I assume is "average" snow so the heavy, back -breaking wet... Read more

And it all goes down the drain. FInally. Free-flowing tub.

Sunday, January 25, 2015      11 comments

DH tried one more trick before calling in reinforcements to get the bathtub drain to unclog. I've pulled up my big girl panties and quit eating to the distress. As stated in my previous blog where I described my mindless, emotion-driven sna... Read more

Mental Toughness, blogging and Spark friends. A win-win-win.

Saturday, January 24, 2015      8 comments

Blogging on Spark has been my therapy. I don't have a physical personal journal, a diary to write my challenges and triumphs. You get a glimpse of my world when I'm stressed or joyful, trying to reach for a goal or a gentle "virtual" pat on the ... Read more

Care for more work woes? Remember when I was job searching LAST time?

Friday, January 23, 2015      12 comments

My administrators are scouring the fields for someone to come help me clean up the mess that continues to be discovered. I compiled a spreadsheet of the what, why and the consequences of my challenges. I didn't only list issues I had proposed so... Read more

Recognition of behavior after the bite has been taken.

Wednesday, January 21, 2015      9 comments

Ok, I wouldn't spit the food out on the floor for several reasons; It wasn't poison (sort-of) It wasn't too hot That's just gross! However, the thought crossed my mind only after the package had been opened with grumbling to myself ab... Read more

Postponing promises to myself?

Sunday, January 18, 2015      8 comments

Siebold apologized in advance if he offended me with telling me I may be acting like a child. No offense taken. I am not sure my behavior is child-like as much as I haven't gotten off the couch this time out of shear lack of focus, not quite... Read more

My Olympic bid on ice. No one gave me a score for my performance.

Thursday, January 15, 2015      13 comments

I still have grace, all 212 pounds of me. I exhibited that grace when walking to my car the other night in a dark parking lot. My right foot stepped on a patch of hidden ice, a LONG patch. As my foot slid I came down on my left knee as ni... Read more

Contemplating the non-negotiableprice of success

Wednesday, January 14, 2015      8 comments

Siebold nails it again in MT part 2 for me. Success is non negotiable. If you want to succeed you need to whatever it takes. I looked at the now-DH filled cabinet of snack, told myself I don't need any, don't like artificial colors and ... Read more

That time (weather) of year. I need a plant light over my head

Tuesday, January 13, 2015      9 comments

It dawned (no pun intended) on me this morning as I looked out upon the darkness and felt an overwhelming urge to cry, I'm feeling the effects of less sunlight on top of all the other things that are kicking me. I turned on a bunch of lights ... Read more

Misspell in my status update made me think.

Monday, January 12, 2015      7 comments

I AM starting a revolution in my head. I am staring in one too! To see me sitting here in my cozy bathrobe and fuzzy slippers, hair askew from sleeping well, you would not categorize me as a revolutionary. There is no fierce expression on ... Read more

Reminded to challenge myself and revisiting the Siebold 90 days.

Wednesday, January 07, 2015      6 comments

Thanks WATERMELLEN! After I mentioned revisiting my bog, she said she was reviewing the program again. Hey, why not? I was successful (net loss) last year and perhaps when revisiting I can get another, tighter grip on my issues. I ha... Read more

Making a difference in a year

Monday, January 05, 2015      8 comments

It's still not the best place to be but I'm making it work. Since I was hired the top administrator in my department was let go, I facilitated 2 being fired. The whole place suffered some poor management, interviews were poorly handled so the... Read more

Fall squash raita- Indian food heaven

Sunday, January 04, 2015      4 comments

Perhaps I waited too long to try this. My departed friend KOMAL53 used to give me recipes like my mother did. Add this, this and some of this. Cook it and done. Sure. I am in Indian food heaven right now; finding the spices was most of the b... Read more
