...with my three jobs: Mom, (temporary) Dad, and fulltime professional. First of all, 2 months down, and 4 more to go until my husband comes home. Exciting news: we're planning to spend a few days in London together on his return trip,... Read more
Cheerful interim update

Some days I feel as if I am sliding into depression, then I have a great day like today, and I feel as if everything is going to be fine again. Things to be thankful for this week: 1. I reached 10,000 steps on my pedometer at least 3 tim... Read more
I may have gone too far

Yesterday, I was in my boss's office, and he got around to his usual complaining about things he had already complained about to me before in great detail. It was all stuff I'd heard before so I was getting a little impatient. I tried to get h... Read more

Thank you again to everyone who commented on last night's blog. I think it helped clear my head. Here is what I've decided while I was out taking a walk today. My boss can't have his cake and eat it too, as the saying goes. Bad thi... Read more
Just a quick update (or not...)

I've been trying to get a little more sleep, so I'm going to try to keep this real short. First off, THANK YOU to you, my dear dear Sparkfriends, for your loving advice and support. Second, let's start with the good news: I ran wit... Read more
Muddling through. Some advice needed.

Just a quick note to let you know that I am managing, although not always well. I have done quite a bit of shopping at Sam's Club, so we have lots of stuff with which to make quick meals on our George Foreman grill. This simplifies life ... Read more
Big change

For the last 18 years, my husband and I have hardly ever been apart, just a few days here and a few days there. Tonight I put him on a flight to the Middle East. He is going with a sense of adventure, and he loves his job. He'll be on a... Read more
Saturday -- Too good to be true?
Saturday, July 10, 2010      5 comments

Saturday is one of my favorite days of the week. This one looked like it was going to be hectic, but things went faster than I thought. Could it be too good to be true? We have a dog and a cat. Both of them wear flea collars and get th... Read more

A quick update. I went to work Friday, and I was facing a full schedule when I got a call from my kids (16 and 13, home alone) to say that my daughter had fainted while in the middle of making breakfast. It would have taken me an hour to get h... Read more
What would you say to a friend...

Dear Friends: This week I had a great disappointment, and I am having trouble shaking it off my mind. I had a *friend* who turned out not to be a friend. I knew someone who posed as a friend, and sent me many affectionate messages w... Read more
Day 28: I owe it all to Skechers Shape Ups
Thursday, June 03, 2010      5 comments

I achieved a milestone today. This is the first time since last September that I have run 3 times in one week, and I am feeling no pain! Wearing Skechers Shape Ups (with orthotics) everyday has taken care of all my chronic foot problems. ... Read more
Skechers Shape Ups: Day 8 (or: Light at the End of the Tunnel)
Thursday, May 13, 2010      11 comments

There was a day 5 blog that disappeared into the great electronic void a few days ago, and since then, I've been tired and cranky because of everything that has been going on at work, so I haven't gotten back to writing. Things got a litt... Read more
Skechers Shape Ups: Day 4
Sunday, May 09, 2010      6 comments

Another day that started out with good plans, and ended up otherwise. My exercise today was purely incidental: a few steps here, and a few steps there. I started out at home in my new super-duper flip flops (Reebok Easytone: not so easy on t... Read more
Skechers Shape Ups: Day 3
Saturday, May 08, 2010      4 comments

This is going to be a really short update. I started out the day with high energy and good intentions that fell flat. I continued to take pleasure in my new shoes, but other than that, I didn't get any exercise, and have nothing new to report,... Read more
Skechers Shape Ups: Day 2
Friday, May 07, 2010      5 comments

I wore my Skechers to work today. I walked over 10, 500 steps in them (so far). I guess they passed a test of sorts. I have flexible flat feet, so I normally wear motion-control shoes with custom orthotics. I was concerned at first t... Read more
