Ready for the weekend.
Friday, April 15, 2011      4 comments

I subbed yesterday afternoon and this morning. Both jobs were in the elementary schools. Art yesterday and 3rd grade this morning. Both were decent assignments. I'm ready for bed so I'll just list me some positives. Positives. Eac... Read more
A different kind of day.
Thursday, April 14, 2011      4 comments

I fell asleep in my chair in front of the TV. Just woke up to go to bed, but wanted to blog about my day so that the thoughts don't carry over into my Thursday. I substitute taught today. When I took the job, I was quite nervous about it beca... Read more
Day two of the backyard Olympics.
Tuesday, April 12, 2011      2 comments

I almost didn't make it into the pool today. I kept putting it off because the pool repairman was coming to clean the filter and I didn't want to be in the pool when he came. You see, I wear my rattiest old suit. Saving my other suits for whe... Read more
Everybody into the pool!
Monday, April 11, 2011      3 comments

I finally took the plunge. Literally. I've been "meaning to" get back into my water routine. I held out for some warmer temperatures. Since the pool water is now at a comfortable 76 degrees, "where's my excuse?" The water feels lovely an... Read more
Plugging away.
Saturday, April 09, 2011      4 comments

My morning has disappeared into the computer. I fell behind in my tracking and sparking and was trying to catch up. I think I'm just about caught up and can "leave this place" shortly. This week I found myself waking up later and morning p... Read more
Thursday thoughts.
Thursday, April 07, 2011      4 comments

I have lost a couple of days. I have an infection and it has had a numbing effect on me. I have to think very hard to account for my whereabouts for the past three days. Its literally a pain in my neck and I believe it's related to a tooth. ... Read more
Tuesday already!
Tuesday, April 05, 2011      4 comments

I slept in today. Wasn't planned. Just happened. I remember having some crazy dream and the phone rang as I was coming to. My dad. I call my parents on Tuesdays and he must have gotten tired of waiting. We had a nice chat. He wanted to kn... Read more
The April I want to create.
Saturday, April 02, 2011      5 comments

I set up my page yesterday on the first of April and one of the things that I do each month is state a goal on my page. This month, for the first time in a long time, I picked a weight goal. I've been having a lovely healthy time, but haven't ... Read more
The JOY (and distractions) of cleaning and sorting.
Wednesday, March 30, 2011      4 comments

As I was sorting some clutter today, I came across this photo of our youngest son and our daughter in the background, taken back in "the day". He is now 17 years old and his... Read more
A Healthy Day.
Tuesday, March 29, 2011      4 comments

I feel that I did a good job of making healthy choices today. My day started with morning pages, some inspirational reading, a list of goals for the day. Exercise. A nice healthy meal. Then in serendipitous fashion, my husband called and nee... Read more

Sunday morning pages
Sunday, March 27, 2011      5 comments

In the "Artist's Way" morning pages are to be done each day. It's a 20 minute "brain dump". Getting some of the stuff in your head out so that you can function more creatively. That is the goal. So I'll dump a little stuff here. One of... Read more
My civic duty.
Wednesday, March 23, 2011      5 comments

It's Wednesday night and it has been a busy couple of days. I reported for my jury summons on Monday and spent a long morning being shuffled around and wound up a member of a panel for a civil case. The judge said that he estimated the trial ... Read more
Sunday night.
Sunday, March 20, 2011      6 comments

I have to get myself to bed. I have to be up early tomorrow to head into downtown Houston for jury duty. That ought to be an adventure! DH reported 2 weeks ago and was excused. Perhaps I will be as lucky. Sunday positives. I spent t... Read more
Daylight Savings and me.
Wednesday, March 16, 2011      8 comments

I am not fond of daylight savings time. It fights with my natural rhythm. I function so much better on "regular" time. But, no use crying over spilled milk. So, this week has been one of adjustment. Big adjustments because I am just comin... Read more
