Recently I shredded old tax documents, from 1986 - 2002. I noticed the sturdy paper clip from 2002 first. The one from 1986 was made of the heaviest gauge wire, with subsequent thinning depending on the year of the forms. Still better than... Read more

In many ways, it feels like any other Thursday. My beloved polyphasic sleeper is down for his evening 'nap', and it is a quiet spot in my day. I worked all day. It's late in the week, and my job is screen-intensive, so I'm tired of typing ... Read more

161.3 So much to say, so little to say. This is off the cuff for sure. I told my DH this morning, "It's nice that I can dress funny". I can dress for feel and sentiment rather than fashion. Ring from DH, earrings from DD, black skinny shor... Read more

My daughter now has a corner office - in the corner of her living room! I successfully activated a new credit card after accidentally pressing the button for Spanish! This working from home is no joke. I'm exhausted and ready to sleep... Read more

...appears to be gratitude. When things go to heck, find something for which I am grateful. The negatives: my knee hurts. I am scared. I am mad I can’t go out to brunch. And before I was fully awake, I was grateful for our steady supply of... Read more

I went for my usual weekly grocery trip, expecting it not to be usual. But it was. The toilet paper shelves that were empty two nights ago were completely full again this morning. I thanked an employee and let them know how impressed I was... Read more

164.6 I don’t like it. This week I’ve been thinking a bit about how dismissive the culture is of me. An “older” woman. I stuffed down some of those feelings with sugar cookies. It helped in the moment, but won’t in the longer run. Run. I... Read more

162.5 Once again, I note how much more slowly I lose than I gain. But at least this week I was able to start moving lower again. More good days than bad days lead to success. I reduced caffeine over the weekend and tracked my food those ... Read more

161.8 Well, that looks familiar. A stomach bug took hold last Friday, and still haunts me. I’m giving it a week to run its course; there’s a lot of stuff going around. I am fascinated by a book I read recently, Survival of the Sickest. It ... Read more

161.7 Well, I knew it wouldn’t be the best. I’ve heard the phrase “I don’t care” in my head this week. But I don’t FEEL like I don’t care. Hmm. So what do I mean when I tell myself that? What am I feeling? Thanks to a Wednesday wal... Read more
