Trying to be positive

I'm not at all sure why I've been struggling so much lately - with everything. But the struggles I deal with daily are leading me down old paths with food that I just don't want to go down. Part of our "challenge" on my BLC team this week is... Read more

..........I'm going to try to be kind to myself. I'm going to stop the negative self-talk and try to see me as others apparently see me. The lady in the mirror has been taking quite a beating lately to the point where she's not talking back t... Read more
That Blasted Lady In The Mirror
Friday, November 04, 2011      1 comments

I looked at the lady in the mirror yesterday and was rather shocked at what I saw. It had been quite awhile since I'd taken that look, and even longer since I'd had any meaningful dialog with her. I started to say something to her, but the loo... Read more
Doing This For Me
Sunday, October 30, 2011      1 comments

So, I'm at a stand-still yet again. Why is it so hard for me to keep with a healthy eating pattern? I do really well for awhile, then I run into bumps in the road in this journey called life, and I let it get in the way. So, today, ... Read more

Me: "Charlotte, lets pick up your puzzle and get ready to go." Charlotte: "Why?" Me: "Because we're going to the store then the park." Charlotte: "Why store?" Me: "Because we need to get you some socks and a long sleeved... Read more

It all started last weekend when we went to see Barry Manilow. I was thrilled to get to see him again - and with an orchestra yet! - but our seats were lousy (as far as WE were concerned they were............especially since we're not u... Read more
Over The Hill

As I ponder this entry, I realize that the title actually has more meaning than I originally thought or intended. I thought this blog was going to be about an accomplishment today. However, I now realize that there is more to it than that. ... Read more
The Best Of Intentions
Tuesday, July 05, 2011      1 comments

After dinner last night, I looked at Mom2 and said, "You know what I want to do before I have to go back on call on Wednesday?" Mom2 knows me well, and glanced at me with one of those Now-what-are-you-getting-me-in
to-? looks and I said, "I ... Read more

On this July 4th, I am reminded of my Marine cousin.............and all those who have given of themselves so I can be free. I take it way too much for granted. Thank you is not enough. ... Read more

"We'll make this an easier ride since you haven't been on your bike in a couple weeks", said Mom2 as we rounded the corner at the courthouse square and parked the Escape. "Sounds like a plan" said I since it was 7:45PM and we were getti... Read more

Down to one job

I can't believe the last time I posted anything was in April. While we are knee-deep in CHAOS for the BLC, I feel like my life has been nothing but work for so long..... My last day for job1 was May 31st. Yesterday, I spent the morning c... Read more
It's STILL Raining!
Tuesday, April 19, 2011      2 comments

Ya gotta love Ohio in the spring................it's either chilly and rainy, warm and rainy, or hot. I think "spring" took a hike somewhere and decided not to return because we haven't had what I remember as a "spring" for a very long time. ... Read more

Saturday, April 16, 2011      3 comments

I'm sitting here with nothing really profound running through my head and that's not necessarily a bad thing. I ruminate on things sometimes too much.......... ..........so today is my "grateful" day. I have my own health, for the mo... Read more
