I wasn't going to look back, but on NY Day, I started to remember some things that I did in 2011 that I feel good about. In the midst of continued loss of loved ones, and feeling like it was another year in the grief clouds, I DID manage to get... Read more
The Caterpillar Thought Its World Was Ending...
Tuesday, January 03, 2012      6 comments

...and then it turned into a butterfly. (Proverb) I ran across this proverb on a book cover while in a store this morning. I have felt like that caterpillar so often during this past few years. However, I keep working at life a day at... Read more
36% Surveyed Have Already Broken their New Year Resolutions!
Monday, January 02, 2012      6 comments

I had to smile as I saw this statistic from the Rose Parade TV coverage a few minutes ago. You can't just flip a switch and change behavior. When folks do that to themselves, they're setting up inevitable disappointment. That's one of many re... Read more
Okay, It's Here. Now What?
Sunday, January 01, 2012      6 comments

I'm not concerned about the goals I met last year, or resolutions for this year. I'm more concerned about laughter and peacefulness. Leaving myself alone instead of being so centered on self and weight loss and all that goes along with thi... Read more

Where Did 2011 Go?
Thursday, December 29, 2011      8 comments

I've never been into the time thing - beginnings and endings. I have a timelessness inside my head and totally agree with Einstein's theory about time. However, we live in a world of calendars, clocks, and assorted devices that constantly ... Read more
Cough Medicine By Perscription Only - Another Wonderful California Law
Wednesday, December 28, 2011      15 comments

I just heard on the radio that over-the-counter cough meds will no longer be sold in CA w/o a perscription as of 1/1/12. This is supposedly due to the escalated abuse by kids taking it to get high - or whatever effects you get with it. Now, cy... Read more

Twice a year, I go to a casino and play the slots. San Diego is said to have the most casinos of any U.S. county. With that said, about 10 buses a day pick up folks all day long, 365 days a year at a nearby mall. Usually I drive, but yest... Read more

I was two and lived with my grandparents. My European grandfather made things so exciting. There was a huge family gathered on Christmas Eve of aunts, uncles and cousins. A massive table was set like a Roman feast with every imaginable dish. ... Read more
Sugar Blues
Saturday, December 24, 2011      6 comments

I can feel my body starting to rebel about no sugar, and I have a feeling that I am really going to kick it this time. Hate the way it makes me feel. In fact, I have a feeling that I am going to make great headway in achieving some goals... Read more
