The Way It Is
So, it's check in time. Yes, I've been off Spark for more than a month. No, I haven't written anything in more than a month. I'v updated my status occasionally, and made comments on other people's blogs, but haven't written anything in quite a w... Read more
keeping it light
This is a short one, and not too deep either. Won't that be a change of pace for me!
DH and I went to the Big Apple for 4 days over this past weekend. He was there for a conference and I was there just to have a good time. What fun, what a... Read more
Here's What I've Learned
Life is about the endless, endless lessons. Sometimes they are when you expect it, but many times the lessons are when you least expect it. Sometimes the lesson is accompanied by joy, but many times the lesson comes with sorrow.
You can't e... Read more
The Class is Back!
Water aerobics class, that is...and I am extremely happy.
One of the instructors called last week to say that the class has been moved to a pool downtown, which is only a little further than where I was going before. Upside, class is back. ... Read more
I have a lot of needs right now. This morning, it was the need to write. I express and release a lot of emotion through writing, and being away from Spark has kept me from writing. I still do the old fashioned journal, which I keep next to my be... Read more
Update on Mom (and me)
Mom was discharged ("kicked out" as she keeps saying) from the hospital and is in a rehab center for now. She's working on getting her weight up--wow what a problem to have! I could give her a good 50 pounds of my own and still be quite fit! She... Read more
Life is What Happens When You're Making Plans
Happy early Thanksgiving to all!
Planning Thanksgiving has run into a hiccup. My mom was admitted to the hospital early Sunday morning with gastritis. What is it about the drama of going to the hospital in the wee hours of the morning that ... Read more
The Check In
Not much has been going on except life in general. Monday night volleyball will come to a close until after the first of the year; Friday night volleyball is just gearing up.
Work is going well. No major complaints there, just that I haven'... Read more
Monday Again (What Have We Learned Here?)
Seems like every Monday I approach the badge reader to the office and say to myself with a laugh, "Didn't I just leave here?"
It seems so true--I just left on Friday and now here it is Monday again. Weekends are busy and fun (just the way ... Read more
The Event Was Great!
I think anytime your new CEO says, "If I had known there would be a band, I would have worn my jeans," it can be rated a success. Not only did he say that very thing the night of the event, but he talked about the event at the monthly management... Read more
The Big Event is Tonight!
Have you ever been involved in something and really, just couldn't wait until it was over?
Tonight is our hospital's service award dinner at the downtown convention center, and I'm the "project manager" for this monster. 450+ people will b... Read more
I've had my ups and downs with my co-worker. More downs than up. Just when I think, "Oh, she's not so bad," I change my mind. Some days I just don't know what to think. I'm back to thinking that she's just not a very nice person.
But at th... Read more
Thank You, Spark Friends!
My last blog entry was rather a vent. A rant. One long complaint. But I thank you so deeply for reading, understanding and commenting to the positive.
While I'm still working hard on the job, at least I can go hard(er) at my workouts. I thi... Read more
Down, but not out.
It's been a crappy few weeks.
I injured my sacroiliac joint, which is the joint that connects your hip to your back and while I'm better, I'm still a work in progress. You never realize until you mess your back up that you pretty much use ... Read more
Monday was Day 50
I started counting on Memorial Day. I'm not much for counting, but I thought, "Hey! What the heck!"
Memorial Day was "Day 1." I literally went through the calendar and numbered the following days from 1 to 100.
So, Monday was day 50 o... Read more
