Keep some good thoughts for my family and a friend. My daughter is in a lot of pain from her accident. I am taking her to see the neurosurgeon tomorrow. Hopefully it's just deep bruising from the air bags and nothing more. My younger gra... Read more

After I posted last night, I was worried that it was too whiny. Well, today the universe decided to tell me I was right. I was on my way to work when my daughter called. We had just been texting before I left, so I couldn't imagine why she was... Read more

What a long day! It actually started last night. We went to bed at 10, but I didn't fall asleep until almost midnight. Then I woke again around 3:30. No idea why, but it makes for one tired day. Suddenly I am absolutely slammed at wor... Read more

I did not get as much done as I had hoped. However part of the reason for that was an unexpected visit from my oldest son. We haven't seen his since Christmas Eve so it was nice to take a couple of hours and catch up.... Read more

We escaped the worst of the snow. We got about 5 inches. On the other side of the state, my son says they have 2 feet. I planned to stay in all day and I did just that. I got some well needed rest this morning. I got some work done and some boar... Read more

Thanks so much for your comments on my last blog. I could not have done this without SparkPeople and the support of my friends here. It's hard to say how close we are to actually opening the shelter. We have the possibility of a partnership w... Read more

Today was a long day, but productive in the end. It started with me setting off the alarm in a new office space our non-profit will be using. After getting someone to help me turn it off, I hosted a meeting there. After that it was work all af... Read more

I wrote a blog on my phone last night but obviously it didn't post. We had a quiet day at home after my SIL and niece left. We lazed around all morning and spent the afternoon working on our annual budget, until it was time for the weekly call... Read more

I am a bit over on calorie range today. My visiting SIL took me to lunch and I underestimated the calories. I did eat healthy foods and I tracked it all once I got home and could search the Internet for calorie counts. I am counting today on the... Read more

I know it's technically Friday but I am just going to bed so it's still Thursday to me. It's been a day from hell. There's too much to get into at this hour. Suffice it to say my streak continues.... Read more
