In an instant . . .

Friday, March 06, 2015      5 comments

In an instant life can change irrevocably. Permanently. I was at a dinner meeting last evening with a group of colleagues. There was a business component. A social component. And it was all great fun. Until: one person tripped.... Read more

High Conflict: Bill Eddy Method

Thursday, March 05, 2015      20 comments

A lot of the work I do is "high conflict". I like to joke (!) that if every file involves four people (two lawyers, two parties) then it's highly likely one of them has a personality disorder which generates high conflict. And: I try hard for ... Read more

Fraud!!

Tuesday, March 03, 2015      26 comments

Yup, there it is, my undeserved February 2015 Trivia A student award. And I'm a fraud. An imposter!! Which makes me think more generally about imposter syndrome -- something a lot of women (in particular) seem to suffer from. ... Read more

Best of Winter

Monday, March 02, 2015      24 comments

Don't you think that this is the very best part of winter? Yesterday the temperature rose all the way to a balmy -5C. I got out for a great xc ski with dear son filling in for DH (whose wonky knees will probably keep him off the trails... Read more

Trivia, Gym Scales, Size 4 Pants

Sunday, March 01, 2015      26 comments

Well, I was so pleased to learn it may be possible to "reload" a Trivia question if I hit one I deem irrelevant to my Nanook of the North existence; plus the suggestion that there are others out there who google the answers to tough questions an... Read more

Is February 2015 Trivia Super Star Month?????

Saturday, February 28, 2015      19 comments

It's February 28. Last day of the month!! And I see a 100% rating on my Trivia questions for February. Sure, it helped that February is a short month. Only 28 days. (And given how cold it's been: who would want MORE February???) ... Read more

Sitting With Emotions: a moving experience!

Thursday, February 26, 2015      25 comments

I really enjoyed the comments on yesterday's blogs. It's interesting to me: lots of people have never used excess pounds for "protection": and they seem to be people who've not experienced huge spikes in weight. Makes sense. So, continu... Read more

Continuing to Track . . .

. . . even though I've had no success in shaking that darn half pound) at least on my home scales: the gym scales are cooperative). And so: I'm just not going to worry about it. It can't be "real" weight. It's gotta be a technical/e... Read more

Deep Freeze Redux

Monday, February 23, 2015      25 comments

We're right back into it this morning at -22C. And more snow too! Finding my newspaper in the driveway required great bravery and considerable search-and-rescue skills: I can well understand that the delivery person doesn't want to get out... Read more

Lovely Weekend Continues . . .

Sunday, February 22, 2015      18 comments

OK, then: the scales at the gym (proper balance beam scales) weigh me a full pound lighter than the scales (cheapy digital) at home. Guessing you can tell which scales I prefer!! Had my olive green leather pants taken in dramatically (... Read more

I am happy

Saturday, February 21, 2015      26 comments

Do you have those random moments when you become aware of happiness? Just walking down the second floor hall of my house on a Saturday morning -- dim and rather shabby-- heading up to get a third basket of laundry: and caught myself thinkin... Read more

Bzzzy Day --

Friday, February 20, 2015      21 comments

Sometimes the work just piles up and Friday is especially bzzzy -- if I'm hoping to have free time on the weekend. And that's OK. It was interesting. It was productive. DH was wearing his new bird-patterned bow tie that I found for h... Read more
