The saga began last Friday. I left work early with a slight cough. I didn’t feel too bad, just didn’t want to be in close proximity to my co-workers in a quiet environment like that. I took work home and dug in. An hour later…. THE SNEEZE. You ... Read more

Warrior Dash 2014 is in the books! What a gorgeous day for it. Not too hot and no humidity to speak of. The event didn't seem as organized as in previous years. I don't think they were prepared for how much this has grown. It was a long wai... Read more

Well, May really flew past me. I worked crazy-style so I could leave for vacation without leaving too much hanging at work. Nine days on a motorcycle, two days of laundry and then two days at a work seminar. Next thing I know, it's June 1st... Read more

Sometimes I wonder if it's worth going on vacation with the amount of work I have had to do in the last two weeks. When I get back, I will have two days to relax after a nine-day motorcycle trip before I have to catch a plane for a work seminar ... Read more
Sensational Saturday

A mild, sunny Saturday started in the usual way, with a little coffee and a little sparking in the early morning quiet. I really wish my dog would sleep late on weekends! But then the quiet solitude is nice too. I took her for her usual one... Read more

Worthwhile Weekend

The weekend started with a great end of the day walk around a section of the walking path at work that I have never ventured to before. Nice little inclines. Quite windy but it was an invigorating one-mile walk. A friend stopped by Friday e... Read more

Someone told me last week that as the oldest daughter, I am the matriarch of the family since my mom passed away. That threw me into a bit of a tailspin. I hosted Easter today which I do normally but it was different without my mom around.... Read more

It's good to get a good dose of a world existing beyond your issues every now and again. Last night I almost didn't go to yoga. Changing priorities at work aggravated me and it was cold and snowy after a beautiful spring-like weekend. But I... Read more

I posted in my Spark status that I would run last night because the weekend was going to be too busy. I post, therefore I do. It was a draining day at work, sitting in a dark room watching a webex all day. I had to stop for a few groceries ... Read more

It hit me today, really hit me how you need to keep moving through the tough times to get to the good times. While walking the dog, it occurred to me that it was just a few short weeks ago that there were still mounds of snow here and there... Read more
