Every weekend for bookoodles of weeks, there has been snow and ice to fight our Sundays, and Mondays. Today there is more of the same. There is at least an inch or two of ice on our front walk right now. And no salt to throw down. We got milk ... Read more
Snow and work
Tuesday, January 27, 2015      5 comments

Snow. Lots and lots of snow. At least 16 plus inches, not to mention the taller drifts, and the fact it was still blowing snow when we measured. The car is pretty much dug out, except for anything reburying it. I worked from home a few hours... Read more

This morning I woke after another 8 hours of sleeping. I rested, snuggled with my cat, drinking water, doctoring my lips most of the day. Crocheting a spiral stitch scarf (of sorts), then around supper time, I realized my sore throat was gone, ... Read more

I got a lot of sleep last night, and when I got up at 9 am (wow!) I still felt like I could sleep more. Alas, I did not fall back to sleep until this afternoon. Lots of down time, resting, sleeping, with one very cozy cat. I can feel storminess ... Read more

Well, I was sick a few days last week, then went back to work, but started in with the chills and other symptoms again. Really really bad chapped lips, no matter how much water I was drinking, and keeping humidifiers going. So I have an upper re... Read more

Today was a Shirley Temple "Oh my goodness" kind of day - colder than 0 here. My sweet husband climbed up in that big ol' SUV this morning and started it for me so it wouldn't be so cold. Then I went to work. Changes going on at work. Ok,... Read more

Well, I thought I would have our car back from the repair shop, but instead I turned in the rental (a cadillac) and got the loaner from the repair shop, a humongous Dodge Durango. Oh my. I think I really need a ladder to climb in. When I go to s... Read more
At the start of My New Year

Here we go folks. Forget the resolutions. We know what we need to do, so let's just do it. Mini steps. I did good avoiding gluten, until New Year's eve, when I inadvertently had a few crackers with my shrimp. I didn't think about it until... Read more

You are left with torn paper, tangled ribbons, empty boxes. You are given gifts that make you smile, make you jump, make you cry. Reuse the bows, and boxes, recycle the cards, and resolve to step away from the chocolate. Or whatever was your dow... Read more

Today was rip roaring crazy. My fitbit let me know I had made my 5000 step mark somewhere before lunch, and the day is not done. I had back to back meetings at work, and was listened to because of my being a degree holding librarian. It was a ... Read more

No matter what we do, no matter who we are, we are faced with daily choices. It could be as simple as choosing between which shoes to wear, or as complicated as what college to attend, or whether or not marrying that special someone is the right... Read more

Since my husband and I have been through all our health issues, and especially how far he has come, we have an ongoing mutual admiration society going. Every time we just glance at each other, sit in the car next to each other, or anytime w... Read more

Oops. Imagine my surprise when I looked at my e-mail from a couple of days ago, that I was motivator of the day! Thank you. I am grateful for your support. It motivates me to do more than I actually am. Life is hard, but we overcome a... Read more

Today marked 90 days logging in, logging water, steps (from fitbit). I also made my 5000 plus steps today. It also marked completion of two full weeks of full time work. I also did 5 minutes of back strengthening stretching this morning... Read more
