Somewhere along the walking/not walking, we do not know where, I have a shin-splint. It is painful enough that it was waking me up at night. Now I have exercises and prescription to take care of it. But man, it is a pain! It was the push to... Read more

I did not realize how much of yesterday I was standing/walking until this morning. It was the spring Shepherds Market at the Amana Woolen Mill. Fabulous day - partly cloudy most of the day but became sunny in the late afternoon. I was there wit... Read more

I had great plans in my previous blog - setting the alarm earlier and walking to work but it has not happened. I have not reset my alarm because I really do not want to go to work right now. I have been feeling blindsided. In January, the d... Read more

This past week at work has been a killer in more ways than one. We had 11 students/faculty here from Russia collaborating with the students/faculty of one of our classes. I was running up and down stairs all Monday and Tuesday setting things u... Read more
Doing it all the wrong way

I am down 8 lbs in less than a week but it is all the wrong way. I am angry/sad/pissed off and not eating. It has become much, much easier to just have my protein drink and a packet of tuna at work. Saves me a lot of time in the morning - lunch... Read more

I feel like I am pulled in too many directions and am losing focus on everything. My Dad is still hanging on (in Hospice) and Mom is becoming a bit more frail every week when I go to help. I want to do more things at home (knit/weave/spin/c... Read more

Today was the last day of finals at the law school. We have nine days as opposed to the five days for the major part of the university. I had five exams I was proctoring. Most were three hour exams with two four hour ones. That meant I had a... Read more

Last night I made a flying trip to my parents to pick up some papers. Fortunately I was driving slower than the speed limit when a doe crossed the road (well-traveled road) a few yards in front of the car. She was in front of me and passed befo... Read more

Now that the time has changed walking--long walking only happens on weekends. Soon it will be dark when I go to work and when I get out. Today I almost left it too late. But when I was walking at a favorite park a dog walker told me there had b... Read more

Finding the time to put into words what is going on in my little corner of the universe has not happened lately. There is my Dad, now in hospice. Which has been a really good thing. He does not lie to the hospice people. They have been a great ... Read more

It has been too long since I wrote last. I have thought about writing but many nights have just been too whipped. But I woke up this morning at 4:30 and just decided to get up and do a few things before work. Work is total chaos. My Dad is... Read more
Make it Work

I love that phrase that Tim Gunn uses. It means to not throw out what you have already done when it does not seem to be going well. Look at it differently and make it work! Build on what you have already accomplished. I have been trying t... Read more

My last entry was the last post-op appointment for my Dad. He got new glasses ordered that day. He is seeing much, much better now. That was also in the middle of two weeks of exams at the law school which was its own kind of craziness. Work j... Read more
