or what I learned today. . . I learned that first graders are pretty much the same mix of personality types universally. You have your "tattlers", your "testers", your "impress the teacher's" , the "huggers", the "ants in the pants" ers, ... Read more

The experience showed me how attached I am to the Internet on a daily basis. I was forced to track my food on a piece of paper! It actually was a great exercise. I find myself retreating to the computer when I could be doing a lot of other p... Read more

- just for the "halibut". I don't have much to say, though. I've spent the morning in the quiet and I have had a long conversation with myself. I'm all talked out. So I guess I'll report the POSITIVES: Thank you Vicki for leading me to... Read more

I lost a day somewhere. I thought today was Tuesday. Time flies when you are having fun or just in a fog. I have to say that a lot of my fog is due to the hyper focus I put into making changes. My routine has been upset and until my new syste... Read more

Motivating Monday
Monday, April 18, 2011      5 comments

My Monday has been a very satisfying one. I began my day with a big breakfast. Then I came on the computer to do some Sparking. I read some blogs and did some catching up. Then I put on my old red swimsuit and headed out to the pool. ... Read more
