November Blog
Wednesday, February 18, 2009      1 comments

Okay, so this is not a typo... I know it is February. As Ricky Ricardo would say, I have some "splainin" to do. I am a flawed human being, and I have not been keeping up with Spark People, or with taking care of myself at all. I am sorry that ... Read more

For the past couple of weeks, I have started to write a blog.. I open the page, create a title, type a few words, then erase it all and give up. This is so unlike me, because I usually have SO much to say, lol!!! I have also started to get ready... Read more

Okay, so I had my time in the dark world of self-doubt and self-sabotage... I had some struggles with being gone for a month and a half and coming home to re-aquaint myself with my husband, who, shall we say, left to his own devices, did not do ... Read more
Sink or Swim
Thursday, July 24, 2008      1 comments

For some reason, I just can't seem to get settled back into my routine since coming home last week. The first several days, I was simply exhausted. Now, I seem to be in some sort of funk. I haven't exercised since I came home. Not once. I have h... Read more

Well, the day is upon us. I can't believe it is here already! Our youngest (and our only daughter), is graduating tonight. The past 18 years have flown by, really. I just wanted to dedicate my blog, and my day to her. I am blessed in many ways ... Read more
