Monday, August 10, 2015      5 comments

I'm making a slow recovery from the extremely toxic workplace I wrote about in my last blog. It is very hard to believe I actually spent over a year and a half there. I guess now I know I'm willing to put up with a lot for a short commute. But ... Read more

Yay! And boo-hoo all at the same time. I'm still adjusting and still missing old co-workers. I was so excited to be working closer to home, but I'm already having doubts about this new company. Too soon to really know for sure. It's only b... Read more

I did start my food journal last night! Just have to keep doing it one day at a time. And I've set my first goal. Decide to eat ONLY one level 5 (junk) food per day. And to record those calories in the journal. Seems like a good place to s... Read more

I'm moving so slow it is sometimes hard to tell if I'm going backwards or forwards. I think my weight is holding steady, but I feel fater than ever. And unhappy about it. My step #1 of drinking water before breakfast is going well. I've ev... Read more

Oh me, oh my. So it's been a whirlwind of a month. We sold more old furniture. We took a firearms class. Our new sectional arrived and we found a rug to go with it. Our curtain hooks were completed by the blacksmith and they are perfect. We... Read more
GTD (getting things done)
Thursday, January 10, 2013      3 comments

GTD is maybe my husbands favorite book. He recommends it to everyone. And gives it as random gifts. I have to say. It is making him a lot happier. And I'm getting more done by riding his wave. Not all days are this good, but toda... Read more
