Yesterday was long-really long. I'm not bragging about 27,000 steps in one day; in fact, you might say I'm complaining. By the time I turned in last night, I was exhausted, both mentally and physically (see yesterday's blog if you need more... Read more

8 o'clock and it was the first time I'd sat down to relax all day. I'm thankful for that bench at the Kroger pharmacy. A typical workday, compounded with a trip to Children's Hospital with my son to see the ENT. He has to have surgery next... Read more

Thankful for the weather? Yes. It's a beautiful day here in Cincinnati. Walked home from the library this morning. It gave me a chance to exercise, get some sun, and enjoy the beauty of the leaves. There was a slight breeze and it felt good. ... Read more

Is anyone else saying, OMG! Where did October go? Anybody else saying OMG! Where did 2009 go? Now is the time of year when retrospection kicks in with me. Like most people, I tend to look at the year as having a marked beginning and an end.... Read more
