The tree is up. When I opened the decorations I saw that many were broken in the move but our angel survived. Yes, I have a paper cup angel wearing gold glitter pants on top of my tree. Doesn't everyone? My oldest daughter made this for me 20 ye... Read more

I've been doing good this week and then my heart broke in half. I think I just want this one day to be selfish, not think of others and just be sad. The day the police came to my daughter's door to tell her there was an accident will al... Read more

I've been trying to find what I can and shouldn't do while my tail bone heals. I've learned a couple of things. Rock climbing is fine, as long a I don't fall again. It doesn't put pressure on my body and I love when I'm climbing the ... Read more

Oh it's that time of year! CHRISTMAS BAKING TIME! I remember the first Christmas I spent here. (Yes I've been on SP long enough that I actually have a "first Christmas" here.) I decided that cookies were fine, have a bite throw the re... Read more

My son came with me rock climbing today, it was great to finally get him out! Just like the rest of us it took one time to get him hooked and I have another climbing buddy. Today I got to tie my own ropes and started learning the harder climb... Read more

This week has been CRAZY busy. Let me post a bit of a conversation I had with just one new hire, times that by 200 and then you'll understand what I mean by CRAZY. New hire: Can I have Friday off? Me: No, you a quiz on Friday. New H... Read more

All summer I sat on a plateau, it didn't really bother me. I gained back a few pounds at the start of the fall, didn't bother me at all. I just shrugged and knew it would come off since there was no reason for it to be there. This past wee... Read more

Last weekend when I hurt my back fear rippled through me. Not that my tail bone wouldn't heal but I wouldn't be able to aggressively workout like I have been doing and that I'd put back on weight while I healed. This is what happens right? We... Read more

Yesterday I wanted to go for a hike. Well, truth be known I wanted to go rock climbing but I knew my family wouldn't support that so I settled for a hike. I approached my husband with the idea. "It's a beautiful fall day, let's go for a... Read more

I have put up with my pain in the butt all week. I've been good, didn't go rock climbing hurt, doesn't matter what I do it's going to hurt for quite awhile apparently. I could just sit on Monday night, stayed relatively still yesterday but I'... Read more

I haven't been around much, not because I've lost focus but by this time of year I have 20 trainers and assistants training close to 200 new hires. By the end of the day all I want to do is get far, far away from the computer. I don't like lo... Read more
