Great Reunion Day!

Sunday, June 28, 2015      5 comments

This is my first blog in several days because life has been hard and the decisions tough ones, but today I feel like I have come out on the other side of a deep valley and as usual, God has seen me through. The situation with my school principal... Read more

I Miss You, Pop!

Sunday, June 21, 2015      1 comments

It's been nearly 16 years and very few days have passed that I didn't miss you, want to discuss something with you, or share my hysterically funny little dogs with you. You would have loved them, especially butterball Bitsee. I wish I had been a... Read more

Almost to Level 16!

Saturday, June 20, 2015      2 comments

Close enough to taste it but not quite there yet. Gaining this level means more than some of the others have because I had almost given up. These long "plateaus" I have really distress me and take it out of me but this time I am still in the bat... Read more

This week I had so much on my plate that I decided not to track but to use the time for R & R so I would not be absolutely dead by the time my three-day weekend started. It worked and I actually have the energy to enjoy myself. It is really help... Read more

The Strategy Worked

Saturday, June 13, 2015      2 comments

Just getting a week's worth of clothes ready saved me enough time in the morning I could get an extra half hour's sleep. I also decided I would not get to work one minute before I actually needed to because first, it isn't appreciated anyway and... Read more

Much Better This Way!

Monday, June 08, 2015      3 comments

Yesterday, I laid out my work clothes for the entire week, grouping all the hangars together so I could grab the whole outfit with one trip to the closet. That bought me enough time I could do some biceps work with 2# weights. I have my lunch sa... Read more

This Week I Resolve to ...

use all the skills I have to break my weight loss plateau. Today, I need to organize myself to better cope with the work world next week. Part of my plateau was the stress-eating I did last week, which came as the result of not getting enou... Read more

To those of you who responded to my Hellish Week blog, thank you so much. You are saying things my coworkers and I are telling each other. It is just really hard while we are in it. We got a small break yesterday when she left at noon. Some peop... Read more

Hellish Week

Thursday, June 04, 2015      6 comments

The job has me stressed this week. Actually the job has been pretty good but the principal is an ass. She has all the people skills of a gnat and has never taught a single day in a prison. Shall we say she is the Peter Principle in action? Anywa... Read more

Has it been that long?

Monday, June 01, 2015      4 comments

You mean I skipped a couple days with my blogging? I'm shocked. Today went well except for my sore knees which are killing me; no back to speak of which is nice for a change. My favorite grocery store is vast and wouldn't you know the produ... Read more

Weather Woes

Saturday, May 30, 2015      2 comments

Still trying to get things back together after the Monday night blow. I have to confess I have blown it this week, eating a lot of junk while we tried to get the house back in order. My go-to sins as usual, chips and chocolate. All consumed and ... Read more

Wow, That Was Fun! Not!

We got to join thousands of other Texans Monday night in feeling the effects of severe weather when trees started falling, etc. Power was off just over 24 hours and we had just got the freezer, the refrigerator, and a couple of fans hooked up to... Read more

In Memoriam

Monday, May 25, 2015      2 comments

This one is for Lance Cpl. Roger Allen Thompson, born May 2, 1948, died March 1, 1968 in Quang Tri, Viet Nam. I could spend many paragraphs writing about the anger I feel toward the politicians who curried this war but it doesn't bring back this... Read more

Sloppy Soggy Sunday

Wish I was in the sun at the Indy! I've done a whole lot of nothing today beyond typing away toward chapter 4 on the book I'm writing and dancing to some swing music on IHeart radio. I made a huge delicious spinach salad for lunch with strawberr... Read more

Not a Bad Week!

Saturday, May 23, 2015      2 comments

Down 6.4 pounds this week. I know most of them won't be anything like that but this was a great way to jump back in. I am taking a guilt-free day off today, at least from most exercise. Slept late, trying to decide what's for breakfast, haven't ... Read more
