    12/21/2014 10:14:28 AM, by LADYIRISH317

    I've just passed my worst night in years. I tossed so much, my bed is a torn-up disaster area this morning. When I actually could sleep I had dreams that were bizarre when they weren't flat-out nightmares. In one my computer at work started spitting out weird charges that had nothing to do with...

    My shoulder's giving me a lot of trouble, and I didn't injure it any way I can think of. I don't know if it's from leaning on it to push when I stand up, or what. But it's really irritating. I've become almost obsessed with sleep lately. On weekends right after breakfast I go to my easy chair a... Read more

    I struggled in 2014. I am not going to lie, I let injuries and stress keep me from exercising the way I should. I let the first 5 pound gain send me over the cliff of self loathing, which led to more high calorie wine and well you all know how that goes. BUT the good news is I did it ... Read more

    The nativity scene is complete. I was out this morning getting my run in and I was thinking about an online order that I was waiting to be delivered and I thought but I know they said at the office it had been delivered and that was about 1 week ago.

    12/2/2014 5:23:01 AM, by SWEETNEEY

    The voices in my head would not let me miss getting in 10k steps. So when I got home last night, I made another turkey pot pie and while that was cooking, I started to dance. I then ate and still had steps to go so danced some more. Couldn't get the music right so it seemed to take along time to... Read more

    I went and had the MRI and MRV done today.

    Drove out to Ithaca area yesterday for Thanksgiving dinner #3. Stayed overnight, had brunch this morning, then drove home. Quick trip, but it was fun.

    Went for my 4 a.m. bike ride. It was breezy (which is fine when it's at your back but of course it'll eventually or inevitably it comes in your face), so it was a tough ride. One of the riders got a flat, so that slowed us down. Another rider needed to be coaxed to the finish. The wind was rough... Read more
