Love Letter to Myself
As part of the BLC 17 challenge, my team had an assignment to letter to myself stating only positive things. This is not easy for me. My first reaction was that I would rather eat dirt. I am not comfortable blowing my own horn. That said, I ... Read more
Just wanted to provide an update on a few things I blogged about earlier this year (not the hurricane!).
My mother is not staying with us any more. She went home three weeks ago. It is working out ok I guess. I still feel that she has so... Read more
Another Hurricane Update
I did not go to work today because my office was closed. I think everything is fine there, and it will be open tomorrow. Driving around, I am running into a lot of roads that are closed because of flooding or downed trees or power lines.

Happy to say that we made it through without losing power. I am surprised that some nearby communities (i.e. Millburn, Cranford) are experiencing serious flooding. I think that large chunks of inland New Jersey are going to be flooded within t... Read more
I am sitting here waiting for this thing to come through and pass. Right now it is raining heavily. The worst is yet to come. Initially I wasn't too concerned about the hurricane. I don't live on the coast. My home is actually on fairly hig... Read more
This is something I have thought about for awhile and have finally been motivated to blog about it after seeing similar blogs. Why do advertisers equate unhealthy foods with the "good life", and why does government continue to tolerate it?

I am depressed
There is just no way around it. I have thought long and hard about even writing this, but I have decided to try to let it all hang out while attempting not to be too overbearing.
My mother has been with us for about a month now. On many l... Read more

Mom is home... With me
She came home from rehab on Thursday. After some discussion, it was decided that she would be best off staying with us. Going back home, even with an aide, really is not an option at this point. The only other possibility (which still may hap... Read more
My mother continues to do reasonably well. Exactly how well? It's hard to say. She left the hospital on Tuesday and is now in rehab at Helen Hayes Hospital in Haverstraw, NY. This is further away than I would like. I started a new job in Ne... Read more
My mother had the open heart surgery today. I am very happy to say that she seems to have come through ok!!!! It was originally scheduled for 7:30 am but postponed until 10:30, and I don't think they got started till about 11:00. As a result,... Read more
Twas the Day before Mother's Day
This sums up my visit to the group home that my father moved into this past Monday. They told us not to come so soon. Boy were they right, but my mother really wanted to see him before her heart surgery this coming Thursday.
Twas the day ... Read more
The saga continues
To follow up on my last blog, my mother had an angiogram two weeks ago. About three years ago, she told me that she had a problem with hardening of her aortic valve (calcium). When she blacked out and had the car accident last month, we suspec... Read more
A long overdue update
The purpose of this blog (which will probably be rather lengthy) is to let my friends know what has been going on and why I have more or less gone missing for a few weeks.
As some of you know, I have been dealing with issues concerning my... Read more

Perfect Cup - Follow Up
I actually wrote a long entry after the event and never posted it. Now that the Chicago event is over, I am revising it somewhat.
I was very glad I went, and I had a good time. The fitters were extremely efficient, so things moved quite f... Read more
