    Finally broke that team point "drought" in a BIG way - I get the message loud and clear! One of the big point wins was for a "Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge" team - sent quite a message to yours truly, as I have been seriously struggling with that issue lately! The other was for one of my wal... Read more

  • UNRELENTING misery!

    4/25/2015 5:41:36 AM, by RASPBERRY56

    Took to bed before 6PM and did NOT bother with dinner - AGAIN! $#!@# computer keyboard is so $#!@# sluggish - much slower than my fingers - typing is becoming horrendously frustrating (since I've always been good with the keyboard this is driving me nuts!)......... Right now I feel like th... Read more

    Continuing computer issues (and I can't send it out for professional work, either) - and this $#!@#@ JOB SEARCH is literally driving me NUTS! One good thing I did, though - I told spouse NOT to buy a particular sweet treat that's been driving me crazy! Seemed to be on board with the idea - I d... Read more

    4/23/2015 4:39:07 AM, by RASPBERRY56

    .......won't say much more on this, but let's just say some things have occured that are really scaring me (not health-related, thankfully - I'm doing well on that score).......... MUST. TURN. THIS. LIFE. AROUND. MUST! START! NOW! NO! EXCUSES! (not even my employment a... Read more

  • Crossing fingers - and wanting to toss a computer out the window......

    4/22/2015 5:05:39 AM, by RASPBERRY56

    Won't say more about the "finger-crossing" situation - I feel somewhat superstitious and don't want to "jinx" things......... As to this $#!@@ computer - need to figure out why I'm suddenly having so much browser trouble! One product won't allow me to do one thing, and another is acting up wit... Read more

  • c**p still gets shoveled on me........

    4/20/2015 4:25:05 AM, by RASPBERRY56

    Heard some news that, while not really impacting me, still has a psychological impact (and of course, it's not a *good* impact)..........now there'll be another type of person who I may be likely to resent while I'm still trying to fix my "bad patch"........... C**p still gets regularly shovele... Read more

    ......even *worse*! First meeting - well, let's just say that I was NOT "feelin' it"..............left half-way through the breakout session - I may or may not return - can't say for sure, but at that point I was miserable (almost fell asleep at one point - I know my bad diet that morning didn'...

    4/18/2015 4:59:49 AM, by RASPBERRY56

    I can't catch a break - I can't even get help to avoid the second part of my nasty travel day! I WILL REMEMBER this, mark my words! May karma do the needful - that's ALL I gotta say on that.......... 234... Read more

    4/17/2015 4:55:57 AM, by RASPBERRY56

    .........but NOT this time! Can't get help on an issue, so I have NO CHOICE but to drag myself to a distant location to deliver stuff - at this point there's NO FEASIBLE WAY that I can scramble to get aid from anyone else..........and what if I reach out and get NO AID? UH, UH - that scenario ... Read more

  • May 9 5k Coming Up

    4/16/2015 5:40:13 PM, by WOLFKITTY

    Soooo... I had some dates written down to prepare for my 5k coming up and have done nothing (yet). It will be torture if I don't do SOMETHING since even going up the stairs at work is uncomfortable. I think my body fat % must have jumped up again as suddenly every day tasks and standing have been ... Read more

  • A brief respite of mild pleasantness........

    4/14/2015 4:28:42 AM, by RASPBERRY56

    Some human contact on a pressing personal problem (no guarantee of success, of course, but still, knowing that I can make contact of some positive type is a start) - took a very nice walk while taking a call on an important matter (awesome "power" scenario - now that's know as "seizing the day/oppor...

  • A downright "mean" day :(

    4/13/2015 4:50:29 AM, by RASPBERRY56

    When anyone has the nerve to criticize me and claim that I'm not being "civil" - well, that convo's NOT gonna end well, let me tell ya! Party involved has a long-term tendency to NOT support causes or concerns other than themselves.............and some of the support I've seen said person provide h... Read more

    4/12/2015 6:20:58 AM, by RASPBERRY56

    First off, I'd like to thank the Discovery Channel and truTV for their mighty-fine "binge-watching" opportunities afforded to me yesterday...........since, as I strongly suspected, getting out of the house yesterday was NOT A GOOD IDEA! (And here's a shoutout to the good folks at Oxygen for their t... Read more

    4/9/2015 4:52:53 AM, by RASPBERRY56

    * Received bad news that *really* destroyed what's left of my "soul" * Had an extremely aggravating day in terms of tech issues - could barely get ANYTHING done * Got extremely unsupportive flak from FAMILY - at that point I said ENOUGH of this day, and bailed out on the evening's plans, t...

  • ALL of Me!

    4/8/2015 12:48:16 PM, by DDOORN

    Continuing my efforts to move toward a kinder, gentler, more accepting attitude toward myself, especially my body I was inspired to "hear" a love song from a different perspective. John Legend's "All Of Me"...such a wonderfully romantic song! But check out the chorus: "'Cause all of me L... Read more

    4/7/2015 4:42:44 AM, by RASPBERRY56

    There is some activity, but I won't say anything more since, when it comes to certain things, I tend to avoid "jinxing" actions in any way........ Here's a sure sign of spring for ya - the allergy flareups are in full swing..........guess there'll be no eye makeup this morning.......... 1... Read more

    ........if you're in "crisis" , "survival" and "hunker-down" mode.........guess I should be used to this by now, but when I think of how many others are doing sooooooo much better, and the never-ending 64K question is "why not ME?", well, then - so much for "being used to this"........

  • It All Comes Together

    4/4/2015 11:12:16 PM, by DDOORN

    It's been a long time since my music spoke to me, joined with me and added to my life with such resonance as it did today. Most of you know how much Jackson Browne's "Alive In the World" speaks to my soul. I realized today that I have another anthem. For my music when running I use an 8 G... Read more

    As a protest to my poor life situation, I will be darkening my SparkPage - have even removed my profile pic (right now I feel anything BUT a kindred spirit to ol' Raspberry Torte)..........the other color will be changed shortly......... Why hide my feelings? That won't help things much.......... Read more

  • River of Life

    4/4/2015 12:42:09 AM, by DDOORN

    With the arrival of April comes the month-long preparation for my annual tradition of running my one & only 5K of the year. I am NOT a runner and I don't really enjoy it. However in the interest of mixing it up and challenging my body in different ways I donate April to the cause. Plus, I figure if ... Read more

    Does this $#!@ EVER end for yours truly? (Oh, yes - obligatory vent and "pity party" mode on.......)

    Have a few things coming up that I have strategically decided NOT to involve myself in - let's face it, if I were to attend any of those events I'd just be mentally distracted (specifically, I'd resent being in the company of anyone with STABLE EMPLOYMENT) - that just won't do.........
