Great hiking outside Las Vegas!

My husband and I are attending a conference in Las Vegas - we're having a great time at the conference and he enjoys getting out to the casinos, gambling a little bit and so forth. Me, not so much - so our compromise is that I'm spending time wi... Read more
I really don't like Las Vegas!

I'm having a good time at the conference and enjoying the sessions, speakers, etc - but honestly, I really do not like this town - I don't drink, gamble or smoke and HATE the way they charge for everything - I'm surprised the toilet paper isn't ... Read more

Wow, it has been awe-inspiring and totally inspirational to watch the whole Chilean mining incident and rescue - those 33 miners who were underground for 69 days are absolutely remarkable and the whole process of getting them out has been amazin... Read more
Mundane things can add up & even become significant
Tuesday, October 12, 2010      2 comments

Life is made up of mundane stuff [at least mine is] so it's really easy to overlook the significance of any single detail - yet somehow it all comes together and one thing leads to another until it becomes significant in some way. I'm becoming m... Read more

I went to the gym this morning for my regular personal trainer appointment - she put me thru my paces and I followed up with an hour on the recumbent stationary bike. I went to look at a used one yesterday but it doesn't seem to be working right... Read more

We almost didn't go because it was raining here in Orange but it's a good thing we decided to try it anyway because it was beautiful down at the beach - we walked around Balboa near the pier a little bit, then took the ferry to the island and w... Read more
One plan is not enough!
Tuesday, October 05, 2010      1 comments

I realized today that I have a pretty good plan for the days when I'm home most of the time but it's really not 'one size fits all' - in other words, I do not have a good plan for different circumstances. Things seem to fall apart to some ... Read more

Sunday, October 03, 2010      2 comments

I have adopted the attitude of '2 or more steps forward for every step back' and I'm giving myself a fresh start after some 'life-changes' that temporarily interrupted my flow. My story is probably familiar to some others, only the details are c... Read more
