Surviving Crunch Time
Friday, June 27, 2014      5 comments

It's busy here. I'm a soap maker and I do festivals and markets as part of my business. The next three weekends are back-to-back shows and now it's crunch time. So I've been on my feet non-stop preparing. My foot is still swollen and not c... Read more

Wednesday, June 25, 2014      7 comments

Well, no, today did not turn out like planned. When does it ever? Trouble sleeping again and not up early. Rained and thunderstormed all day, so no pool time. But I did take care of myself first. Win! Thought I must give that last statement... Read more

Well, my "conquer restless leg with supplements" worked aaaannnd it didn't. I slept the whole night through, no restless leg, BU-UT when I woke in the morning my anxiety was on overdrive and I was groggy. I decided there was just too much to get... Read more

There's a lot to be proud of today. Some things were undone, but all in all a good day. Two in a row! That's something to celebrate. :) Restless leg struck again last night and I didn't sleep from 3 am on. I finally gave up at 5:30 and got ... Read more

Overall this was a beautiful, wonderful day. Finally! I didn't sleep well, but this time it wasn't the hives but restless leg. So I stayed home from church and rested. That in itself was a treat, as church is not a peaceful place for me. I'... Read more
Drawing the Line - Day 19

It's been a Saturday. I always intend to do way more than I actually do on Saturdays. This Saturday is no exception. After my morning at the market, I'm usually wiped out and I get little else done. I probably need adjust my expectations. Today ... Read more

Saturday, June 21, 2014      2 comments

Today marks the beginning of the Summer 5% Challenge. I believe this will be my 5th 5%. The first one was very successful. The rest have served to keep me from going off the tracks during some difficult times. So I guess I should count that as a... Read more
A Wobbly Day

I'm still trying to find my stride. Today is better than yesterday. I assume I will say the same tomorrow. Climbing out of difficult times is like that, one day a smidge better than the last. I took some pretty potent meds last night so I could ... Read more
Staying This Side of the Line
Thursday, June 19, 2014      7 comments

So what's happened in the last 15 days since I blogged? How is it coming with my "line in the sand" and my "five words"? Tough. Since I last wrote, I contracted a terrible allergic reaction to what I thought was poison ivy. It's been o... Read more
Drawing the Line - Day Two & Three
Wednesday, June 04, 2014      2 comments

I'm drawing a line and living by these five words: Exercise, Home, Family, Business, & Fun. I'm plugging along and refusing to give way to the perfectionist monster. He completely derails me. Exercise Day Two: I was so sore after heavy-duty... Read more

A Line in the Sand

Tomorrow, Monday, is my "line in the sand" day. Since February, I've focused on my dad and his illness and helping my family. My business has suffered, my immediate family has suffered, and sadly I have suffered. I'm not complaining. Famil... Read more
My First "5K" Report
Monday, December 02, 2013      8 comments

On Thanksgiving morning I joined over 3,000 people to run and/or walk a 3 mile "race". It's the 25th year for our community Turkey Trot and it continues to go strong. People came serious about their run-time, placing themselves on the front line... Read more
What I Learned from Running Outside in the COLD
Monday, November 25, 2013      10 comments

I will run my first "5K" on Thanksgiving morning. It's actually a 3 mile out and back, a huge event for our community, more party than actual race. But it's my first and I've worked HARD to get here. I haven't actually ran the 3 mile distan... Read more

I've mentioned my kid's and their Halloween costumes in the past couple posts I've made on my Spark Teams. So I thought I'd just put them up in a blog. (The pics are on my Spark Page as well) Here's my 12 year old son as a Youtube page... ... Read more
