Sitting around the house alone is not good for my mental health. Hubby was supposed to be off with me today too but then they called with clients that wanted to see him. So he went in. We did get all his pre-op done this am. Got home abo... Read more
My 4th of July

We had a great walk at the Dunes this morning. We ended up on the longest trail and did a ton of up and down. We worked hard. Then we stopped at a wonderful little restaurant and enjoyed a great breakfast. We laughed hysterically, even h... Read more
No plans.

Had a long hard day at work today. One of those days where anything that could go wrong did. I even ended up staying an extra hour to try to get some things finished. Didn't help. Then there was an accident on the Drive that took me an e... Read more
Good Spark day.

Wow – Take 3 on the blog!! Yesterday was a good Spark day. I got my minutes in, including a 57 minutes dog walk. I stayed in calorie for the first time in 3 days. I did a bit of ST. Water is not an issue for me (I’m actually taking it o... Read more
Piling on - but I can be strong.

So, yeah, to add insult to injury I woke up yesterday with a horrible cold. All upper respiratory! I got less than 2,000 steps in, just couldn’t breathe. Sleeping last night was a real “treat”. Between worry and coughing I think I got about ... Read more

One year ago today I signed up for the Trans-American walk. We started in outside of Yorktown, Virginia and I am almost to Pueblo, Colorado. That is an average of... Read more
Getting real with myself.

A friend and I were chatting online the other day (Wed when I was getting ready to leave for my seminar). I was stressing about everything. Her exact words: “Hugs. Do the best you can. You don't. Need to put more pressure on you right now.” ... Read more
Too tired for a real blog!
Tuesday, June 25, 2013      28 comments

My sleep was so bad and interrupted last night that I feel like I haven't even been to bed. I really don't have the brain for a real blog today, though one is kind of trying to form. Maybe later or tomorrow. So I will just say: ... Read more
Hubby's surgery is set.
Monday, June 24, 2013      31 comments

I left work early today. Spend some time with hubby before we went to the surgeon. He showed us the CT scan. The rupture in hubby’s abdominal wall is MUCH larger than either of us thought. You can even see where his slipped through the hole.... Read more

You know that straw that breaks the camel's back. Well it just PO'ed the wrong little black duck. I will NOT live in stress imposed by others, they can . . . . . just go... Read more

Life isn't getting better yet but I'm feeling better. I had a great hike today at the Dunes. Evil Cherub had asked yesterday if I would like to go. Of course I said yes. I got to introduce someone new to one of my favorite places. We did tr... Read more
Let’s be honest.

I haven’t been following my plan or my own advice. I’ve been wallowing in stress and depression. I keep focusing on how I want to cry and either can’t or don’t have tim... Read more
Not much doing right now.
Monday, June 17, 2013      34 comments

I don't know what was wrong with me yesterday. I just didn't want to do anything. I think I'm fighting a bit of depression, that's all I can come up with. I did get my lunch time walk in today (just over 2 miles). And I just got back f... Read more
Wedding

I had a wedding to go to yesterday. The wedding was for my younger cousin, sister of the one that thought I was pregnant on New Year's even 2011. One of the kicks that got me started on this journey. I have not seen her since that party. Nee... Read more
Quick Update
Friday, June 14, 2013      30 comments

Very short blog today. Hubby is doing much better. His PCP gave him some stuff to “get things moving”. It seems to be working and he is no long in as much pain. Still have to wait to see the surgeon on the 24th but at least he is keeping thi... Read more
