Email is up and running again. I made some adjustments on my laptop and it seems to be running more smoothly, too. And so am I, altho I'm taking it slow. I'll start tracking exercise again today. I've been getting in my 30 minutes intentio... Read more

I'm too tired to write much of a blog post, but thought I'd share a photo of me with the two lovely people I spent most of last week with - my dear dad and one of my cousins. ... Read more

I'm just winding up a term paper for a Monday deadline. The prof was very gracious in allowing me such a long extension. It's been particularly hard to concentrate, not just because of the emotions and such --- but because it's been so HOT here.... Read more

It seems I need to go back to go forward. It's difficult to blog about the little daily incidents of my health and weight-loss journey without sharing something of what I've been through the past six weeks since my mom died. Writing can be thera... Read more

I have an exam in missiology on Wednesday. I need all my "spare" time (whatever that is!) to study, so I'm going to be taking a break from Spark for a couple of days. I even plan to overnight at the school where I'm studying so I don't have... Read more

I went to the new ENT today and I do NOT have nodes on my vocal chords. They are somewhat swollen and very tired which is why they don't close properly at phonation. But there are no cysts, polyps or nodes. Now that I've taken the antibiotics an... Read more

Now that I got your attention, thought I'd share a link to a song today. I want to learn it so that I can teach it to the kids at our next English Day Camp at the language school in May. I may have a weird sense of humor, but I think it's so c... Read more

I could have titled this post "Shameless II" --- When I click "post blog entry," I'll be crossing over the 40,000 Spark Points mark and can go pick up my new trophy. What is it about those points and those little icons? One of the Spark People ... Read more

This blog is a shameless effort just to get 3 more Spark points before the day is over. I have less than 100 to go before I reach 40,000 and a new trophy. I'd really like that to happen tomorrow, on Resurrection Sunday! I really hope Sandy makes... Read more
