This morning I was with my mom and she asked if there was anything I needed today. I said, "Well, not really. Although, I don't have any clothes that fit me anymore. Almost everything I have is too big!" Within 10 minutes we were parking at Ko... Read more

When my son was a little guy there was an animated movie about a robot society (I think maybe it was just called "Robots") that had several cutesy catch phrases in it. One character built his life around "See a need, fill a need" and was a suc... Read more

In the words of Doris Day, "Que sera sera, whatever will be will be, the future's not ours to see, que sera sera." I'm not completely out of danger of being evicted yet but the manager that's been giving me so much grief is no longer workin... Read more

I've mentioned before about what a prick my new apartment manager is. Well, Friday I got a notice that "during routine maintenance" my house was too messy and one more notice and I'd be evicted. Seriously? Routine maintenance? I can't even g... Read more

I'm not surprised I didn't lose weight this past week. Disappointed, of course. It's always nice to step on the scale and see a difference. But last week I lost 2.5lbs that I did not earn. Those were sickness pounds from being ill and lackin... Read more

Today my baby girl turned 10 years old. I don't know how that happened! I told my mom that there must have been some kind of jump in the space/time continuum because it's just not possible! But along with birthdays comes food. Usually un... Read more

I was SO sick yesterday! It was awful! I actually asked my parents to come take my daughter for the day. I don't think I've ever done that before. I mean, she's stayed with them when we've planned for it or once in a while she'll ask to or t... Read more

I have an appointment for my annual physical first thing in the morning! Well, second or third thing, really but still very early! I'm grateful it's early because they asked me to come in fasting. I don't do well without breakfast. And this ... Read more
