My blogging here lately has really been random and "drive-by" style. That's bad, for a few reasons... but mostly because writing about what I'm doing has always had the effect of crystallizing the thoughts (some of them really good) that someti... Read more

O Friday: How I Love Thee
No kidding, right?!
Seriously, really glad the weekend is here. April is flying by! I'm kind of glad - not because I'm wishing time away or anything, but all the minor little dramas cropping up in my life this month have taken their toll ... Read more
So... my broken tooth... the one that got "fixed..."
It suddenly got angry with me. Very, VERY angry. At 3:00 a.m. on Friday morning.
Went to work, called the dentist, and explained to them that the pain I was in was making me want t... Read more
Less Than 20% Battery Life Remaining
I seriously need to stop eating crap and start eating better.
I'm usually really good about it - mostly because my body is so used to "good" food that when I eat something terrible (like loaded fries, to use a recent example), my entire con... Read more

Here's that rainy day

Naughty me. I did not post a blog entry yesterday.
Maybe that's because I was working my crazy rear end off.
Not that any of that has changed for today, mind you; today is still nuts, but the difference today is that I'm pretty much r... Read more
I am having a horrific day. Staying on track with my diet - but seriously a really BAD day.
And I discovered I have a bad habit when I'm stressed: I grind my teeth!
I already know that I grind my teeth when I'm sleeping, but today I ... Read more
Grumble growl snarl
Okay - I just want to get this off of my chest, and then I promise I'll talk about happier things.
Parents (especially mothers of very young children):
Not everybody is as enamored with your child as you are. Your child is not a speci... Read more
One of the things I am really starting to appreciate about taking Hannah out for her daily morning walk is that I am gaining even more of an appreciation for the coming of Spring than I normally do. This time of year always comforts and energiz... Read more
Hmm... guess not!
I really thought I'd set this thing up to linky-uppy my blog posts here to Facebook... but maybe I did it wrong?
Anyway - had a great walk with the babydog this morning, and dragged the boyfriend with me. I didn't realize how fas... Read more

Testing, one, two, three.... Read more
Of many things.
Not tired of taking Hannah for long, quiet morning walks and identifying birds by their songs.
Not tired of sleepy kitties that are happy to curl up with me at the end of the day.
Not tired of being gainf... Read more
So I finally went to see the specialist yesterday re: my pesky wrist, and I got the cortizone injection... which seems to have worked, because apart from injection site pain, there's really no more issues with it. HOWEVER - since the injection ... Read more
