Things have been a bit crazy over the last several months. This weekend I caught a cold and have taken some time to rest, which I probably needed more than anything else. I need to get back on track with my schoolwork and with my weight. ... Read more

Today, Wednesday, September 30, 2009, marks the first day since Sunday, September 20, 2009, that I have been able to access the Internet from the comfort and privacy of my own bedroom. And why is that, one may ask? The saga began in th... Read more

I've hit burnout

The other day I tried to read yet another book about autism (the story of a family whose triplet sons have autism.) I couldn't finish it. It wasn't that it was a bad book, I just couldn't deal with one more thing about autism. I think I... Read more

Here's what I'm trying to do as far as dealing with school: I've taken a few tapes out of our speed library and plan to practice with those. We also have an Internet-based website where we can go to practice and I'm using that. ... Read more

For nearly a week I've had a horrible time sleeping. I've been waking up every couple of hours. I need, probably, to start taking hot baths again but I had a very hard time getting out of the tub last time. I bought a grab bar at the ha... Read more

I finally put a new battery in my bathroom scale this morning. Then I stepped on it. It said I weighed 286 pounds. My first response was, WHAT??? Then I saw a flashing letter C after it, turned over the scale, and it said that if... Read more

Saturday, December 27, 2008      2 comments

For me, the first step on the journey to losing weight . . . is to put a new battery in our bathroom scale. The battery finally gave out, and frankly, I'm afraid to put a new one in because I really don't want to know how much I weigh! OTO... Read more
