The Way It Is

Thursday, May 09, 2013      3 comments

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

Wednesday, March 13, 2013      2 comments

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

Tuesday, February 26, 2013      6 comments

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!

Monday, February 04, 2013      0 comments

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

The Need

Wednesday, January 30, 2013      2 comments

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)

Tuesday, December 04, 2012      7 comments

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

Tuesday, November 20, 2012      6 comments

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

Wednesday, November 14, 2012      4 comments

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?)

Monday, October 29, 2012      7 comments

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!

Tuesday, October 23, 2012      7 comments

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!

Friday, October 12, 2012      6 comments

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

Some People

Monday, October 08, 2012      8 comments

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!

Tuesday, September 18, 2012      4 comments

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.

Friday, September 07, 2012      6 comments

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

Tuesday, July 17, 2012      3 comments

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
