Tuesday, November 06, 2012      4 comments

Yesterday I wrote a little bit about how dependent I can be on other people's opinions of me. I had two different people make comments that really affected my own self-image yesterday. The first was this very kind-hearted but totally outsp... Read more

When did I become such a cold-weather wuss?
Thursday, November 01, 2012      7 comments

Sandy has done some terrible damage to the East Coast; I'm so grateful that all my friends and family are all right. Here in West Virginia, we just got snowed on. Tons of heavy, wet snow. The governor made an announcement at quarter after 8... Read more

Maybe? I'm back to "teaching" Zumba (unofficially, just with a couple other women in the apartment complex), but the office forgot to leave the key under the community building door mat tonight, so we couldn't do it. Old More Compulsive Me ... Read more
