I am alone. This is different. No one to talk to, unless you count Molly, our dog. DH will be away for 2 weeks. What if this was always my life? This experience of being alone creates a richer context for understanding life and appreciating... Read more
Ch 2, Day 92
The weather is expected to be unseasonably warm and in the 50s again today. Most of the snow is melted. My little crocus leaves are poking their little sprouts through the top soil already...hope the rabbits don't find them as they forage for ... Read more

I am nearing the end of my second 100 Days of Accountability. I am asking myself, "should I scrap this challenge because I have not been able to blog over the past four days?" I boldly say, "no." Though I haven't blogged from life's unexpecte... Read more

It's been two days, since the the "big shovel" where I lost 2.5# literally overnight. This morning, the scale is holding at 1.5# of loss....maybe this is the real deal. I think it is. I just need to hold on until this weekend's official weigh... Read more
