It's a gray day here in Katy, TX and the plan is for my sister and I to get right to work on her daughter's wedding gown. We have done our reconnaissance and now we have it's NIKE time. (just do it) So we are headed out for procurement of mate... Read more

I was looking forward to my sister's arrival. She walks daily. I have been lax in this area. She helped me realize something. . . walking with a buddy makes it easy to accomplish. I need to find me a buddy when she leaves. I subbed for ... Read more

Three days into March and I finally have my March goals on paper and ready to implement. As I wrote my goals, I found that none of them have anything specific to do with weight elimination or nutritional wrangling. No "eat so many calories, ge... Read more

It's a new month and time to refresh some goals. Lent is almost here and I like to take a "season" to implement some healthy sacrifice. It's always been important for me to word my sacrifice in positive language. Instead of saying I'm giv... Read more

I can hardly believe that a week has passed since I last blogged. (almost) Let's see, where am I? This is always a tough time of year for me. My husband is out of town a lot and that changes the normal routine. It's amazing to me how much I... Read more

Literally. I had a working computer, but no monitor. Our son bought himself a new monitor and gave us his hand-me-down, so we are in business again. It has taken me a bit of adjusting to get used to this "little" monitor, but fortunately, the... Read more

The start of the two months of this New Year are revealing a pattern to me. And a "truth": My time is a gift that is not necessarily mine to control. The start of my year was put on hold for a death in the family. The start of MY February ha... Read more

Well, my Friday did wind up to be quite fabulous. The sub position required a lot of mental energy but I like that kind of challenge. I had 104 students throughout the day and I learned all of their names. It always surprises them when I say ... Read more

It seems odd to me that the last time I blogged was Monday. Doesn't seem that long ago. I think I lost a day to foam hunting. What an ordeal. Anyway. . . I went to bed at my usual healthy bed time last night. I woke up to void at 5 an... Read more

The days of blogging everyday seem to be eluding me. But I keep working at blogging as often as I can. I enjoyed a half day of Jr. High Language Arts on Thursday morning and a full day of 1st grade on Friday. The Jr. High position was extra ... Read more

After a bit of housework this morning, I decided to ram. I hopped into my car and headed toward the city. I have a circuit that hits the health food and ethnic markets. I left at 1 o'clock and returned home at 5:30. I was able to cross off ... Read more

It has been a nice start to the week. Schools are closed to celebrate Dr. King's special day. I had to taxi our youngest son to school for musical rehearsal. He volunteered to play in the pit band for the play. He was disappointed that he ha... Read more
Negatives into Positives.
Friday, January 14, 2011      7 comments

When I read Wanda's blog yesterday, she said something about turning negatives into positives and for some reason it prickled a thought about the way I deal with negatives. It seems Pollyanna-ish to not acknowledge the tough things that need to... Read more

Today didn't go exactly to plan, but it turned out to be a positive day. One of my son's made an error in judgment. He connected to the internet on a phone that does not have an internet plan. His portion of the phone bill came to $247 dollar... Read more
