Pay It Forward!

Thoughts on Being Sad
Last night DH and I were talking about how I'm coping with Mom's death. I said that I think I've been trying to ignore or mask the sadness, just waiting for it to be over. Maybe I just need to FEEL it. Maybe that's the key. I've been phasing out... Read more
Wow, I am struggling so much right nw. I know what to do, I just won't do it. I wanted to write "can't" there but I read somewhere years ago that when you say "can't" you really mean "won't". I believe that.

Hubby and I have had a great week! We began South Beach again. This time we vowed to NOT eat chicken breasts and broccoli every night! Tonight was the first time all week we've had chicken. The variety seems to have helped. We are not feeling li... Read more
I'm amazed at how quickly my frame of mind can change. I'm unsure now of how to proceed towards my goals. I still know I can achieve them, I'm simply unsure as to how that will happen.
When I kicked South Beach to the curb I was tired of l... Read more

Different reaction to stressful day!
So, hubby left a voice mail during his bus duty (we're both teachers and both doing summer school now). Said, in coded words, of course, that he was thinking some wine with dinner- and after dinner, too- sounded good. I listened as I was driving... Read more
