Anyone have some valium?
Thursday, May 17, 2012      6 comments

No rainbows and unicorns in this one guys, sorry. And this is a bit of a rant, so here goes: This is such a stupid "problem " and most will think it is so trivial, but I have had very few things cause me so much anxiety and loss of sleep a... Read more

I am exhausted and relieved. Tonight was our (symphony's) final concert of the season. I am absolutely wiped out and relieved that the season is over. Now the hard part comes (channeling Nancy Reagan) and I have to decide...was this my last c... Read more
New Approach
Friday, May 11, 2012      4 comments

I had to take a step back and re-evaluate what the heck I'm doing, because it is insane! Same thing over and over, yet no results. So...trying something new: I have a really hard time sharing stuff about myself, so this is a great place t... Read more
A Week of Recovery? Hardly.
Saturday, May 05, 2012      4 comments

The comic breaks of life with dogs is just too much and when you think you've had time to recover, life surprises you. Last week I took my baby dog, B, to an agility trial in northern IL. To be there on time, I needed to leave my house at 4am... Read more

Yup...that I am not, but I sure as heck spent like one today! Bought my new shoes (and inserts) for more than I would ever dream of paying (though it's probably the price of non-designer boots in a big city). Additionally, I spent more on my c... Read more
Not Really MIA
Sunday, March 04, 2012      5 comments

Hi all! I AM still here. I've just been so limited on time over the last two weeks or so that I've been tracking and pretty much only changing my status (because that much is easy enough to do on my phone, while I'm at work). I spent a good c... Read more
My One Year Spark Anniversary...Thank You SparkPeople!
Saturday, January 28, 2012      10 comments

One year ago, I went online to try to find out more about WeightWatchers and its new program and if there were any other similar programs to WW that were maybe a bit cheaper and without the numbers (I tend to obsess); I found SparkPeople. It's ... Read more
There Was A Holiday This Weekend???
Monday, January 02, 2012      6 comments

First off, I want to thank all of my SparkFriends (and some of their friends) for all of the love and support that I received over the last few days. And if I didn't respond to you personally, I apologize; I did try, but this fog I've been livi... Read more
Breast Cancer...I Hate It.

Merry Christmas everyone and I hope that everyone has survived some of the holiday season...only a little more to go. Before I continue on with this blog, I want to warn you all that it is NOT full of holiday cheer and is a bit more serio... Read more
Pocket Full of Poop
Tuesday, December 06, 2011      11 comments

Yup...not exactly Natasha Bedingfield, sorry. My run today was a bit more interesting (and easier) than usual. In order to help out a friend, I agreed to run her EIGHT dogs. I ran the first four for just over forty minutes and it was truly t... Read more
What a Weekend!
Sunday, November 27, 2011      5 comments

Thanksgiving was uneventful (which is usually a good thing!) and not much to write about. So I won't...I am not a fan of poultry anyway. Yesterday was Mr. B's very first agility trial. His very first run (a standard course) went pretty sm... Read more
Freshwater Surfing (video blog)
Friday, November 25, 2011      4 comments

This is my first attempt at a video blog; sorry if it sucks. A while back I blogged about freshwater surfing in Lake Michigan...I have proof, this guy does it. The waves weren't especially gynormous, as they are sometimes, but they were ... Read more
Big Run/Short Run Dilemma
Wednesday, November 09, 2011      2 comments

Wednesdays are my "big run" days. I have back to back agility classes with my dogs and then I follow that up with a good run with them. I do my runs with a friend, which is motivation in itself. I can't EVER call in sick or just decide that I... Read more
Always Something There to Remind Me
Friday, November 04, 2011      7 comments

Lately, I've totally been listening to my favorite 80's tunes, soaking up whatever nostalgia they bring. With everything going on in the world, I sit back and wish for it to be 1982 again, but it's more complicated than that. I don't just want... Read more
Thank You
Thursday, October 13, 2011      6 comments

Thank you, everybody for your support. When I blogged last night, I was just pounding out what I was feeling, trying to make sense of it, recover from the shock and I guess work through the emotions. I am so thankful for all of my friends (Spa... Read more
