Although it took me about 5 hours, I got out the 4 job applications/resumes/letters that needed to go out today, and completed it by 2 (my personal deadline since I had to get paperwork out by 3). Spoke with my attorney, and I don't HAVE to meet... Read more

Stepped on the scale. Augh! Nearly back to square one, well maybe square 10. Water weight? Something from the change in medications? Something to do with the headaches, etc.? No wonder everything feels really tight this week. But 5 pounds in o... Read more

This week. Definitely. Due to too much time on the computer working on job applications, etc. I seemed to be overstressed, had a meltdown, and there just didn't seem to be enough time for anything, and last Sunday I stopped my 16 day streak of... Read more

We woke early. It seems I was very restless due to pain. I had slept at least 6 hours solid at that point, but was 10 hours since my last medication and was feeling it. My husband said he could tell, and knew I would be getting up soon. I did ... Read more

Don't be afraid to look. I am who I am. I am not who I was, well sort of. I was who I was, and that's still me, just it's not today. I can remember what I looked like, but that is not the me of today. I have to like who I am now, and I r... Read more

Today started out as a good day, and I still consider it so. Although I had a hard time getting to sleep, I did get about 6 hours before I got up, and when I go up, my back didn't feel too badly. I started out with about 5 minutes of PT stretche... Read more

AH, I did not realize what day it was until I was at some register writing it down in my check book. Perhaps that is why my back was so dang bad this morning I needed my dh to drive? Or maybe that is why my flat screen computer monitor bit the d... Read more

Sigh. Relief. Success. Satisfaction. Today I volunteered for the second library, and did what is called "shelf reading", sorting the books into order, and "weeding" the worn, outdated, and old stuff in a children's non-fiction collection, or a... Read more

If we quit, we can't go on, and we can't begin again. If we face each day with an attitude of gratitude, and forgive our previous blunders, we can have this day to be the first day of the rest of our lives. We can have lots of first days, but le... Read more
