Fingers crossed as I type - the San Francisco Giants are this close to winning the first game against the Braves! I am so glad I get to see this game on TV after a really challenging day. I told a coworker my day felt as if I were trying to... Read more

Today was quite an interesting day. My supervising attorney was unhappy with me, but she did not rip into me as I feared she might. She was not feeling well and I very much appreciated the fact that she did not launch into a tirade. How many ... Read more

The last few days, I have been HUNGRY! Yesterday, I ate way above my calorie range and still went to bed hungry. At lunch yesterday, I got my seasonal flu shot. My toe caught on a crack in the sidewalk and I landed on my left side. Not much e... Read more

Yvonne was hired to take a position I was vacating 4 years ago. I trained her for the job she does now and, in that process, we became friends. Over the years, we got closer and even went on weekend trips together. Through this time, she has ... Read more

My employer hosted the Area contest for humorous speech and evaluation contests. A coworker entered and won the humorous speech contest! I was thrilled! I came in second in the evaluation contest and later learned that it was a tie. The s... Read more

I have not blogged since learning about Gayle's death. Saturday was the long ago planned lunch in honor of my fried Ruby who died this summer. Her birthday is in a few days, so a bunch of us wanted to get together and eat in her honor. It was... Read more

What I Could Not Say Yesterday and How Today Went...
Wednesday, September 22, 2010      6 comments

Yesterday, I wore a huge sweater all day. I overheat easily, so I rarely wear a long sleeved shirt let alone another layer. I was not cold, though the weather is starting to be changeable, so it did not appear odd in the morning. Why the swea... Read more
I Hardly Know What to Say
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      11 comments

All day long, I have been composing a blog in my head. I used to blog every day, but have now fallen into an old lifestyle habit. My family knows when I go silent that things are not going well. So it is now. I don't have the energy to type ... Read more

09/17/1789 - the day the US Constitution was signed! That was the highlight of the day. I have felt lousy most of this week and have been inhaling carbs in an effort to make me feel better. I don't think I will weigh tomorrow... My te... Read more

Today was the first All Hands meeting with our new CEO. I usually sit in the front of the room so I can hear and see. But I knew everyone would expect me to do so and I wanted to send a message that the change of CEO is not something I take li... Read more
Executive Reorganization and Picnic Snacks
Monday, September 13, 2010      3 comments

Our new CEO started the week with an over-the-weekend email. He has promoted one VP to take his old position, created a new VP position and moved some departments to now report to a different VP. My take away is that he wants to hit the ground... Read more
Banana Slug
Sunday, September 12, 2010      2 comments

California's state mollusk (or something) is the banana slug, so called because it is often BRIGHT yellow. I guess the yellow is so bright because it gives the false message that the creature is poisonous. I felt slow, sluggish and nonspecific... Read more
.3 Increase Disappointing, Not Defeated
Saturday, September 11, 2010      4 comments

I weighed in this morning before I saw the advice from a Sparkfriend to avoid the scale today. She suggested, rightly I think, that the scale would be up because of the sodium increase from the picnic food yesterday. .3 is not terrible, but it... Read more
