I feel too old...
Thursday, August 25, 2016      2 comments

So I feel too old lately. I feel too old to understand my children as they navigate their relationships - when did it become OK to "fight" in public (social media)? When did it become OK to just let things go because they are too hard? ... Read more

Why is everyone so quick to pass judgment, particularly on a situation they are not a part of? It baffles and angers me. I try very hard to be mindful when I start to judge - I'm not perfect, so it happens. But some find the need to judge others... Read more

It is the first week of school. Busy at work. I'm tired. It's been a long week. We went thru some stuff with my son and DIL this weekend and, with my babydoll visiting her other gramma, I am missing her like crazy. Eating habits good this week. ... Read more
Fighting the crud...

I think I am fighting the crud. I had the aches and the chills last night and generally felt poorly this morning. I escaped work and slept for 3 hours straight. I am feeling better but ready to go back to bed. Once I get through our board meetin... Read more

My job is NOT conducive to adding steps to my tracker! I am a Administrative Assistant in school district office. I try to walk to deliver things around my office but for the most part I am sitting all day in front of my computer... We walked th... Read more

I made it through Mother's Day. It was harder than I thought it would be but I held it together pretty well (I think!). Another "first time without Mom" moment... ... Read more
Happy Mothers Day

I am actually not looking forward to this Mother's Day... it will be the first since losing my mom. I'm sure it will be fine and the babydoll will be here too so that will be great but I so wish my mom was here to share it all with me! She would... Read more

So my cousin sent me some essential oil samples to try to help me relax. She did this out of the kindness of her heart and it is greatly appreciated. Not sure what they will do but I am willing to give anything a shot these days. ... Read more

Thinking is wearing me out... I need to get out of my head and quit worrying so much. Not sure exactly how to do that but I know it is what I need to do. Sometimes I feel like I'm just spinning my wheels but I need to get over that way of think... Read more

My mother in law's name is Jeannie... I had weird dreams about her all night long! I am going to see her today and have to have a frank discussion with her about a few issues and I am NOT looking forward to it. She is not a very kind person, nor... Read more
Diamonds vs stones...

Blah...
Wednesday, November 06, 2013      2 comments

Today I feel - Blah... Not sad, not mad, not happy, not excited, just blah. I'm a little tired which might contribute. I'm in between big projects at work, so I am doing "housekeeping" type chores which I am sure contributes. Its windy and a lit... Read more
