I kept the kids yesterday, usually my daughter's day off, for my daughter to interview for a full time job she wants. It would be 8am to 5pm, Monday - Friday, so my child care duties would be quite different hours. And at least for a while she p... Read more

My very wise SparkFriend Monty68 wrote something that I've been thinking about all day. In part he wrote, " I also think there comes a time when we drop the maintenance and define ourself as living life. It doesn't mean we forget about maintena... Read more

I stepped on the scale this morning uncertain how my last two weeks of travel had affected my weight. I told myself that any weight from 123 to 133 would be okay, but I'd work to get back into my range of 124-129.9 soon. Well, I didn't nee... Read more

Party a Success, But No Pictures Yet

The party was great! I was a little worried about it. When I agreed to do it, I expected it to be on a day I did not keep the kids, but it got moved a day earlier, to her actual birthday when I did have the kids long hours. I usually have leftov... Read more
