The end of an era
Sunday, November 01, 2015      6 comments

This is the first year both of our kids are too old for trick-or-treating. We gave away 7 bags of chocolates to neighborhood kids tonight and had to turn off our outdoor light when we ran out of candy, but there was no reciprocating bag(s) of l... Read more
And sometimes it is a little hard

I was traveling for work today and did not have total control over my meals so it was challenging. Breakfast at the bed and breakfast: grilled fresh pineapple (good), sliced croissants turned into French toast and then soaked in syrup (ski... Read more

I am on a short work trip - drove in this afternoon, will leave tomorrow afternoon, and am staying in a cozy bed and breakfast for one night. My hosts took me out for dinner tonight, at a microbrewery/restaurant. They had an order of nac... Read more
Not this old dog

I understand I am supposed to be able to learn new tricks. So why am I going to have to stay up to the wee hours again to prepare a presentation that I should have taken care of days ago? It's as if I have a small part of my brain calculating ... Read more
The butterfly effect

Many months ago I came across Mom2acat's sparkpage and was immediately captured by her story - battling very advanced cancer. She showed so much grace, strength, and ... I guess, serenity ... in her posts. I marveled and admired anonymously fr... Read more

My stomach is in knots, and for once it isn't because I abused it with overeating or poor food choices. One of my trainees has a big evaluation today, and I think I am more nervous for her than she is! There is something wrong with me - I am M... Read more
Taking a breather

I've been religiously tracking my food for many months here. It was very helpful at the beginning to keep me on track, but seems not helpful the last few months. I keep a running tally in my head so know exactly what I'm eating, especially sin... Read more
Picking up speed

Our lawn is covered in leaves and we had hail and snow last week. How did the year go by so quickly? Our kid got her learners driving permit on Saturday. How did the years fly by so swiftly? I'm already starting to think of presents ... Read more
It's always a new day

And thank goodness for that. Night time snacking is still kicking my butt, but every morning I wake up with hope and desire to do better. Today feels more hopeful than usual because I got a human amount of sleep last night. 9 hours - that's ab... Read more

[warning: explicit parent gushing and strong language] Picture: soccer playoff game. Both sides have been playing their hearts out. One team is down 0-1 with 40 seconds to play. One side of the stands is already celebrating; the other ... Read more

It's only been a week, but I don't think this third glaucoma medication I am trying is going to work out. I have no idea if it's doing anything good for my eye, but I'm noticing that about half an hour after I apply it, I almost always start ha... Read more
Catching up

I was so tired today from traveling and completing last minute work chores that I napped for 3 hours after dinner. Passed right out on the sofa. I woke up at 11, listened to the kid as she recited some of her homework notes in preparation for ... Read more
A very bad idea
Tuesday, October 20, 2015      9 comments

When traveling, it's advisable NOT to look at myself in the near full-length mirror when stepping out of the hotel shower in the morning. In my defense, I didn't do it on purpose. I merely forgot to look away in time. So yes, this is a ve... Read more

I had a work deadline on Saturday - so of course I didn't get it all done until early Sunday morning. I finished uploading my reports after 5:30 am, then slept for 1.5 hours, tried to wake myself up with a shower, packed and had breakfast, and ... Read more
Wee wee hours

It is 5:37 am and I have just finished my work in time for perhaps 1.5 hours of sleep. I have a meeting later today and all day tomorrow, and had to submit a pile of reports online by ... yesterday! So of course I didn't get it done until toda... Read more
