Thursday, September 19, 2019      8 comments

Not the best news...mild osteoporous in left hip and mild osteopenia in the right hip...lumber spine normal range. Prescription Vitamin D and weight bearing exercise. Of course that prompts me to ask... 1) were the prior medications not hav... Read more

Tuesday, September 17, 2019      6 comments

Have taken a big step to goal of getting a dog and new volunteering opportunities. I think the positive steps I am taking to ensure a great retirement have had a positive affect on my sleep. While I still wake up more than I like during the nigh... Read more
September 16, 2019 - I am getting Vain / Vein in my old age?
Monday, September 16, 2019      6 comments

I didn't think I was vain...but 6 months ago I had a juviderm procedure to 'erase' my jowls. Took 10 years off my face and with IPLs my skin looks great. (A startlingly beautiful young woman I met last Thursday said when I told her I was going o... Read more

Thursday, September 12, 2019      5 comments

I escaped many of the afflictions of menopause and am thankful. No hot flashes, no night sweats, no HRT prescriptions and no wild mood swings. But I did break my wrist in 2006 (slipped on wet concrete outside chasing after my dog) and the follow... Read more

September 11, 2019 - 18 years ago today
Wednesday, September 11, 2019      5 comments

Yes, can't help but remember...where I was (at home), what I was doing (working from home for IBM), who called to tell me to turn on the TV (my assistant in Phoenix via IM) and the horror I felt...more abject disbelief than horror. Yes the horro... Read more

Tuesday, September 10, 2019      4 comments

It was all my imagination - nothing up at work as of yesterday. BUT, and as LEANJEAN says - that's a big BUTT - we have a 5 hour divisional kick of meeting this morning which is probably packed with 'surprises' or at the very least changes of du... Read more
September 9, 2019 - Don't Assume Doom
Monday, September 09, 2019      7 comments

Good advice from NELLJONES to my weekend angst about what is going on at work. My boss confirmed - moving our offices (while it makes sense) by swapping with another department is NOT what is going on. So, while this was not my worst case scenar... Read more
September 8, 2019 - Oops...skipped a day and no real excuse
Sunday, September 08, 2019      6 comments

I am up and then I am down...so much of my emotions, my weight, my sense of well-being, my 'security'. Ah, the weather shifted last night, cooling and this today promises to be 10 degrees lower and the humidity down as a low pressure area assume... Read more

At last... But really, have been feeling slightly depressed these last few weeks. Even with the heat/humidity of the days and nights I cannot blam... Read more
September 5, 2019 - Feeling better today about 'things'
Thursday, September 05, 2019      4 comments

The oppressive heat & humidity the last week really makes it hard to sleep. Wandering around at 2 am trying to decide 'open the windows and run the whole house fan' or crank up the A/C? On the positive side, I am getting some extra steps in. ... Read more

Driving this for the next few days. Why? Someone at my work in the parking garage last Thursday got too close to my car and this was the result: ... Read more

Tuesday, September 03, 2019      3 comments

The first day of the undergraduate term begins today...so I came in early. Have leave early to attend a funeral for my neighbors Mom and the following wake back home. She was suffering much...so it is a blessing. So much change going on around m... Read more
