Shopping and packing
Friday, October 30, 2009      3 comments

I used to love shopping, but I don't seem to have much time for it these days. Shopping used to entail looking and trying on, but not necessarily buying. Now I don't even go shopping unless I'm looking for something specific and I'm prepared t... Read more
Too many challenges?
Thursday, October 29, 2009      5 comments

I had been reading about challenge teams, and thought this was just the ticket to force me to exercise consistently. I'm pretty close to my first weight goal, but don't think I can make any progress unless I speed up the metabolism. And my pri... Read more
Paying attention to what you've learned
Wednesday, October 28, 2009      5 comments

In addition to what seems like mindless meaderings here on my blogs, I also occasionally post to the journal on the planner. Just random thoughts as they occur, or snippets that I don't want to make public, basically bits and pieces. I hap... Read more
I gained and that's OK
Tuesday, October 27, 2009      9 comments

All right, that wasn't my initial thought when the scale registered a gain this morning. My first thought was anger. I was angry because I'd been following my plan and it should produce results. I was angry because I had been doing this... Read more
The week ahead

After a turbulent weekend, I can only wonder what the week will bring. I started the weekend concerned about my missing cat. She hadn't been seen since Wednesday evening, but I kept hearing meowing from the jungle next door. I finally sen... Read more
First weekend challenge
Saturday, October 24, 2009      1 comments

Attending a wedding this evening, with the SO's family. Wish me luck! Cat still not back - she's been AWOL for 48 hours now, and I'm not hopeful. And it's time to call my mother - sigh - who knows what I'll find there. On the plus side... Read more
A 6-week challenge
Friday, October 23, 2009      4 comments

No, it's probably not what you think. My SO is arriving later today, and will be visiting for approximately six weeks. Although a wonderful person, he's a health disaster. He smokes, is obese, diabetic, and thinks egg rolls are vegetables. ... Read more
Blogging for SparkPoints

Nothing much to say today, and I'm feeling a little blah. I'm not too surprised, my energy level is not back up to par after my weekend of exercise and my 24 hour bout of fever. I'm back to just putting one foot in front of the other to ge... Read more
Just what the doctor ordered!
Tuesday, October 20, 2009      3 comments

Dr. Feelgood, that is. I got back last night from the Israeli dance camp I've been attending annually since 1998. Not the only one I go to during a year, but one of my favorites. I signed up early last summer, and I have to admit that I w... Read more
Off again
Thursday, October 15, 2009      5 comments

Off my electronic tether, that is. I'm heading to a dance camp, which should have me jumping for joy. It's what I do for fun. But I guess the depression is getting in the way. Yes, I'm admitting it, I'm depressed. Not inappropriate since m... Read more

Just yesterday I read the article about the killer salads served by restaurants. Killer as in really, really bad for you. I had to run some errands today, so I stopped off at Whole Foods to get a salad. Here's what I selected: Spinach Gr... Read more
Mom update
Tuesday, October 13, 2009      2 comments

She's decided to go to my brother's house for now, and will go to a hospice home when it becomes impossible for her to be cared for at home. Given her unbelievable resilience, this is probably the right decision. I wish I could be there to... Read more
A place to live

My sister in law and I went to Tippett House yesterday to check out a living option for my mother. My mother is being released on Thursday to either go to my brother's house, with hospice care, or to another facility offering hospice. The ... Read more
Random thoughts

I just noticed how many of us hide behind pictures of our pets. I love pets - I have a house full. In fact, I just wished my dog Sophie a happy birthday yesterday. And I love looking at pictures of them. I like seeing pictures of your pets... Read more
