I don't feel particularly inspired to blog today, but since I am a "positive blogger" team member, it is my duty to try my best to do so. I have had a very good day nutrition wise. I have been tracking my food on the Nutritiondata.com si... Read more

I can't believe that my last blog was November 25th. Oh well. What was the title of that old film, "The Lost Weekend"? That was like the lost two weeks. I fell into an emotional cesspool at the end of November, and even with all the practice ... Read more
Extracting myself from the "mother" in me.
Tuesday, November 25, 2008      7 comments

As a mother you become very close to your children. You sometimes have to let go of your own needs to meet theirs. The tricky part is that you can get all wrapped up and involved in their lives and you forget where your life ends and their li... Read more
