I'm not going to belabor today's post; I don't like dwelling on the disappointments. But they happen and to not mention them seems akin to pretending I never have problems striving toward my goals. Which of course is so very untrue. I kil... Read more

Sunday, September 21, 2008      2 comments

It's been a rough couple days for me. I'm really feeling my fat today. I feel like the future is too far away to trust putting any eggs in that basket. My emotions seem to have taken on a life of their own and my body is determined to undermine... Read more
