How is it Monday I ask. The week goes so fast, and then, it's Monday, again. And something always goes wrong on Monday. Today it was the smoke detectors. They went off, most likely due to the cold air(today's high was 9 degrees). Hopefully ... Read more

I acknowledge that I need to work on my stress for this year. So I am starting by keeping a journal. Today was stressful only when the weather made it difficult to decide to go bowling or not. I did; and I made it home safely. How I bowled i... Read more

It has been said of me that all it took to make me happy were some cookies and punch. Well, tonight revealed that might not be true. My girlfriend thought that some of us should sign up through the local college to learn how to bake cookies. ... Read more

There are some things where no explanation is needed. That would have been the case if I just said "R and R". Everyone knows that this stands for rest and relaxation. But is that sufficient enough for a team that is known for reading? That i... Read more

What a surprise I had in store when I went to open my e-mail and found that I had several messages on my SparkPage. I usually get on the computer at the end of the day when everything else is done. Today, being Tuesday, that was bowling. I bo... Read more

I have been tracking my calcium intake because I am borderline hypoparathyroid. So I was very frustrated that the nutrition tracker showed that I was not consuming enough calcium. I certainly was at my recommended caloric intake(or slightly ab... Read more

1994 is the last time I remember weighing what I did today. Another way of saying that would be 15 years ago. That is incredible. I was younger then; I had many different concerns at that time. I haved worked at the same place since Nov. 28,... Read more

...say nothing at all. That has been the bottom line for my blogging. I have nothing that I consider positive to say, so it is easier to say nothing. The amazing thing is, I do spend time thinking about the topic for my next blog entry. Str... Read more
