I spent the first beautiful morning of Spring on the patio, listening to calm music and the birds chatting away, eating a healthy breakfast, enjoying the touch of the soft cool breeze wash over me and the beauty of all the green surrounding me, ... Read more

Changes were made at work yesterday and I am already more than stressed about it. I HAVE to get a handle on my feelings. I woke up dreading going to work. I can't even seem to quiet my mind enough to try to meditate myself calm. Life is go... Read more

Despite the now ever present vertigo which has kept me from exercising, I lost two and half pounds(although SP says only two.) I'm not going to split hairs. The shot and my watching what I have been eating is paying off. ... Read more

Well, it figures I would feel better 3 hours before bedtime. *LOL* I got a little bit done today so feeling accomplished. What I didn't get done will wait until another time. Everything is ready for heading back to work tomorrow. It's goin... Read more

I woke up with another head spinning bout of vertigo and it is not abating as much as my first bout did. Roomie thinks it may be allergies...we have a mulberry tree in our backyard and I have had my windows open every day for the past two weeks.... Read more

Yesterday was wonderful! Calico Basin was lovely, even though it is still a wee bit early for wild flowers. There were lots of signs that Spring is on the way though. I hope once I download the pictures, they will show it! I walked the the entir... Read more

This morning I slept in until 7:00 (which is really rare for me, 5 is as late as I will "sleep in" as a rule) When I went out to fix my breakfast, Roomie's mom said she was going to be working at Lil Bit's school today, for at least a couple of... Read more

Well now, yesterday was a ball! I had my mani-pedi and remembered how nice it feels to pamper myself. It seems silly to be so tickled at having bright fuchsia finger and toe nails, But it makes me feel good. I spent the whole morning at th... Read more

2015 was a rough year. Major depression settled in and I once again became a recluse. It seems as if I fought it all year. So many ugly thoughts that scared me. That is not to say there weren't good moments...these I embraced and filed away in m... Read more

I had a small episode on Friday, came home a couple of hours early and slept for several hours. I took easy yesterday, was careful about what I ate and as a result I felt fantastic today. So, grocery shopping done... laundry done...exercise... Read more

Ginormous sigh (and a couple of tears) of relief

I know this is going to sound kind of drama queenish...but with all the problems I have been having over the last few month, the fear of something more than a gallbladder problem has weighed heavily upon me. Aside from a small hiatal herni... Read more
