Setback OH NO!
Wednesday, February 08, 2012      6 comments

And on the evening of the 8th day, I failed. Okay, failure is too strong a word. I don't like that, it doesn't really apply, because I have NOT failed. Let's say I had a setback. Everyone can recover from a setback, but failure is pretty complet... Read more

Well in my current post surgery situation, I don't like it (zumba). Only because I am as coordinated as a hippo on rollerblades! But just like everything else, it'll take time to get "into the swing" of it. It looks fun. I love workouts geared t... Read more

Okay, so I'm not going to give up on SP no sir. Won't exactly pick up where I left off, cause that didn't work. Just take some time to reread/reimplement some basic SP goals and guides and get back into this. Post surgery update: Pain l... Read more

Hi friends, I must admit I have been remiss in keeping up with my sparkposts. I haven't been here in months. My friends are probably worried about me, but lets call it what it really is- I got bored and lazy, and just plain dropped out of the ... Read more

Dear Journal: I got up just minutes before I had to leave for work. Thankfully I've learned to get my clothes and lunch ready the night before. I hit the snooze button one too many times again this morning, arguing with myself if I can get up,... Read more

And that is DEPRESSION! Whether its a symptom of menopause, knowing my son is getting ready to leave the nest, because I've been a single mom without a man by my side for 20 years, or whatever reason; I've been having a really hard time dea... Read more

We all know the joys of motherhood; watching our kids grow, teaching them how to ride their first bike, drying their tears over scraped knees, taking them to a park to play, birthday parties, the list is endless. But what about the other j... Read more

Okay on Thursday, 12/9/10, I turned 50. Then on Thursday, 12/16/10, I fell, sprained my ankle and broke the basal metatarsal bone in my right foot. I can't drive, I can't work, I can't carry anything, and I can't even walk! It's been 3 days and ... Read more
Turning 50
Thursday, December 16, 2010      8 comments

I hit the half century mark just last Thursday. Believe me I was dreading every second that that day was approaching. How could I be 50? I still feel and act way too young most of the time. Oh yeah, sure I have the battle scars, aches and pains,... Read more
Tragedy today...

I was emotional last night. On my way home from work I passed an accident on the opposite side of the freeway. Traffic for them was stopped as they had a few fire trucks blocking the freeway. That usually signifies a fatality. As I passed on my ... Read more
