Life's still crazy, but...
I'm still caring for me. I just got a blog notice from a wonderful Sparkfriend I hadn't heard from in ages, so in answering her, I got a bit wordy and decided to make it a blog entry.
I have begun a slightly different journey than I've eve... Read more
Hi friends. I miss you all. Life has been really throwing me for a loop. I could list all the things, but it would sound like complaining, so I'll just hit the main ones:
Dad died. Lives across country, lots of traveling back and forth.
K... Read more
I'm going to test out a strategy, thanks to the good friends who posted on my last blog:
My new self-check: am I being productive?
If not, is that because I'm using my planned for/budgeted relaxation time?
If I'm merely overwhelmed, t... Read more
On Being Overwhelmed
There is definitely an ebb and flow to life that leaves me wondering about this: being overwhelmed.
The questions are:
Are the things of life actually that overwhelming?
Or is it me?
Is it how I'm handling things that make me feel ... Read more
The Rails (long blog)
Before posting this blog, I re-read my last blog. Seems I got derailed. Oops.
No, I don't know what ... Read more
Weight moving, Feeling healthier already
Finally have managed to stay healthy for about 2 weeks now, YAY! Maybe my immune system is finally on the upswing after the medical condition that has plagued me for over a year now.
In this 2-week period, I've managed to exercise nearly ev... Read more
super fast blog
Ok, the weight isn't really moving, but I've got more energy than I've had in a year. Unfortunately that meant really weird sleep last night b/c I wanted to be up taking care of things. I think I never really felt like I was asleep all night. Ha... Read more
Thanks and day 2 update
Thank every one of you who commented on my blog yesterday! Due to time constraints (aforementioned redoing schedule to include exercise and meal planning/cooking), I just can't visit each of you.
Update: Yesterday I went to the gym while m... Read more
Seriously pressed for time this week, so I'm going to dash off a blog to stay in touch. But I'll be back to my teams in a day or so!
Wanted to share an odd realization about myself. And I'm going...hmm, is it really me?
My three deares... Read more
social media...is it really social?
In responding to a Sparkfriend's blog, some thoughts came up about social media and I realized how few social components are actually present in social media!
I have a son who has social challenges. I've spent a fair amount of time teachin... Read more

If life only ever gave me what I could handle, how would I grow?... Read more
In the getting-myself-back-together stage of this health condition I'm still fighting, I did my first official workout. It was a mere 20 minutes on the elliptical at level 1, but hey, it's a start.
But the part I'm almost as happy to report... Read more
Absence/Abstinence makes the cravings grow stronger
I'm on a new (to me) medicine. I can't have calcium or soy for 4 hours after taking it upon rising. This means no milk in my espresso. No vegetarian sausage (I'm veg). No egg. No cheese. No english muffin. And various other things. So, it's weir... Read more

I MATTER: not gonna be a pushover anymore
What I want matters. Why do I put up with a charter home-school that no longer fits my needs, drops "change" bombs on me regularly, and doesn't let me do it my way? Why do I stay there? Because I'm ignoring MY needs as well as that of my son in ... Read more
