New Years Goals

My doc was happy with my progress this month. I was able to take a situation, and despite her caution to not do something, I did it anyway. It's been causing me pain for years, but suffering from it was not doing any one any good, and I couldn't... Read more

After all of the emotional things that happen when a loved one dies (my step-dad) you would think that "things" would get easier. Let me give you a clue, they don't! You can take a day to rest, but then the hard part begins. A person can't... Read more

For the past seven weeks, my stress/anxiety levels have been over the top and nearly out of control. It all started when I got a call from my step-dad's dialysis center, wondering why he missed his last two appointments. As a diabetic, I kn... Read more

If you’ve started reading my blogs, by now you are wondering, why is Bob writing about what he can remember of his life? If this were a biography at the library or the bookstore, I surely wouldn’t check it out or spend good money on it. Tha... Read more

Thursday, January 01, 2009      5 comments

Today is the first day of the rest of my life. Every morning that you wake up, you can say that, but on New Year’s Day it seems particularly appropriate. You’ve just completed another year on Earth (except, of course, you Venusians) and it’... Read more
