    4/21/2015 2:14:12 AM, by HANNAH_CALM

    Some of you might want to know what I do all day, because I don't really hang out much right now. Well, I know it's a problem. I have a problem with time management right now. But I do like you guys! I really do. There's more than one component to the problem. Here are some of the parts: ... Read more

    I have this project or renovating my guestroom and turning it into a room that I can rent out to university students.

    "What if" – I said to my OA-pal the other day – "What if this is what my higher power thinks is suitable for me. If HP wanted me to become abstinent, I would..." It you try "everything" for a long time and end up eating compulsively anyway, it seems as if it is a hopeless cause... Anot... Read more

  • Am I Real?

    4/14/2015 4:34:26 PM, by HANNAH_CALM

    On television shows and in books, when a character doubts whether they are awake or not, they have this foolproof method of checking- by pinching their arm. We do that when we know we are awake too, to see how muscular our arms are, or to judge the amount of fat that is there. I found I had develope... Read more

  • Wonderful Trip to Sweden!

    4/12/2015 7:36:55 AM, by ANNEMARGAR

    Just returned from eight wonderful days in Sweden - seeing the sites and visiting family. We spent a day in Copenhagen, Denmark; three days in Gothenburg, Sweden; and three days in Stockholm, Sweden. My true weakness is European sweet rolls! The ones that look like donuts, but they're baked wi... Read more

  • I Wake In Pain

    4/11/2015 8:03:38 AM, by HANNAH_CALM

    When I wake up, I am in a lot of pain. And I am always really disappointed. I go, "Oh, no!" I wish I wasn't waking up. Because I start to feel my sinus headache, and my skin that's all messed up on my face from blowing my nose so much. Everything comes back. Sometimes, I can catch myself, and go bac... Read more

  • The Longest Sad Quote

    4/9/2015 1:57:06 PM, by HANNAH_CALM

    "People in difficulty and distress, or in any manner at odds with the world, can endure a vast amount of harsh treatment, and perhaps be only the stronger for it; whereas they give way at once before the simplest expression of what they perceive to be genuine sympathy." _Nathaniel Hawthorne, The ...

    Ok, yesterday I did well. I went swimming at the Ymca and did some laps in the pool. I went on the exercise bike. Today, I have not done any exercise.

    Monday was my brother's, Jesus, birthday and I decided enough was enough and I closed my Google+ profile which gave him automatic access to all my family's pictures and information.

  • Reading A Lot

    4/7/2015 9:17:28 AM, by HANNAH_CALM

    I'm on a reading tangent lately. I read two books by Mary Higgins Clark, who is a very popular American mystery writer. I read two books by Lois Duncan, about her daughter, Kaitlyn Arquette, that was killed in 1989 and is still unsolved. She is a famous children's author of suspenseful novels, but h... Read more
