Cruise Goals for BLC 23
Posting again to add my BLC Cruise Goals: Where do I see myself in 12 weeks?
I would like to be 8 pounds lighter. 12 would be nice but 8 is probably more realistic because of travel plans for October and November, and because of the planta... Read more
Fly-by Post and BLC 23
Gearing up for my first BLC as a member of the Azure Destinations team, and feeling a mix of trepidation and excitement. I'm sticking with my September goals but adding the 3-post-a-week requirement to the list.
Now, I'm on my way to bed a... Read more
I don't know what to think...
...so I'm not going to think about it too much. Pray some instead.
I just got a call from the director of the Bible school where I taught some 15 years ago asking me if I could imagine coming back to teach in the spring 2014 semester. I won... Read more
I love Germany
So, this morning I left my groovy, neoprene, imported-from-the-USA, BUILT lunch bag on the train. Funny, because I usually have so much to carry and I remember to gather all my things before I get off. But today, I only had my shoulder bag and t... Read more
One year ago today...(long!)
A year ago today, early on a Friday morning, my father died one month after suffering a debilitating stroke. Although his speech was severely impaired, and he had difficulty swallowing and walking without assistance, we had hopes that he would r... Read more
Tomorrow will be a much-needed free day after a strenuous week at work, and dealings with the lawyer, bank and real estate people who are back in Florida working to get my parents' condo sold.
I've wavered on some of my September goals but... Read more
A pretty good week!
Here's an update on my progress toward the fitness goals I set for September.
1. I tracked food and exercise every day except yesterday (Saturday) but I think I was within my ranges nonetheless, and posted on the 5% challenge thread as we... Read more
Translation: Keep your head up!
I've had this postcard on my wall for several years. Time to take the advice - again!
I wanted to measure today but forgot and ... Read more
Late Summer Check-In
Preferring to call it that instead of "early fall." Or does "early fall" sound more optimistic? with the "early" and all?
I haven't posted in over a month, I see. I have been working a LOT since I got back from the States at the end of May ... Read more
I continue to have a VERY busy schedule at the language school and not much time for anything else, it seems, but the three D's - dinner, dishes and duds. I've spending too much time on the internet, though, now that I'm able to watch videos on ... Read more
If you're trying to keep track, I've been back and forth to the States since my last blog. While in Florida, I was able to get the condo pretty much emptied. That was physically and emotionally very difficult but I had help from some wonderful ... Read more
Yesterday, I was feeling pretty clear-headed and in control. Today, I've been feeling more emotional and helpless. I woke up feeling like a cold was coming on. I do NOT need a cold right now!
So, I'm taking massive doses of C, drinking a lo... Read more
I am back in Germany - but only for a few days. I need to go back next week and do the final clear-out of my parents' condo where I've been living the past 6 months. The brief return to Germany has to do with securing my visa and also with frequ... Read more
As the new year approaches...
Just thought I'd share this quote from Christian writer Francis Frangipane:
"We’ve heard, and even valued the counsel, “Leave it in the past.” It is advice that promises we can unburden our minds of grievous pain or loss. Yet, “Where is the... Read more
Thanksgiving in the USA
Waking up a little later than usual (over the jet lag!) to a sunny, breezy, cool south Florida day...
Reading posts on Facebook from friends around the country and the world...
Watching the Macy's Day Parade and smiling to think of how... Read more
