Over the edge and back again
Saturday, June 24, 2017      1 comments

So...I only THOUGHT I had successfully gotten through the depression that grabbed hold in March...It's actually taken me three months of pretty much foundering around to be at a place where self-care has made it's way back to the priority list. ... Read more
Back from the edge
Monday, March 20, 2017      3 comments

The last couple of weeks have been a struggle. Two weeks ago today we had to put our beloved Gadget dog to sleep. She passed from this earth in my arms, peacefully, and I am grateful for the care of a kind and compassionate vet. Food is still my... Read more
Daily Note
Tuesday, February 07, 2017      1 comments

I just found a feature on the tracker page that I haven't noticed before and I am really pleased to see it. It's "Add Daily Note" and it gives a place to make note of things that are going on in my life each day that might affect (effect?) my ea... Read more
Only destroyed one pair of pants
Sunday, February 05, 2017      0 comments

Yesterday's goal was to get all the pockets off the scrub pants to be modified for the show. I managed to totally destroy the first pair (which is why I always buy a couple of extras) but the rest are safely de-pocketed. I also completed both of... Read more
Blog goals

This month is insane. I have twenty costumes to make and roughly twenty days MAX to get that task done. It seems a rather crazy time to add anything to my already packed agenda but I find that one thing that isn't happening lately that helps mai... Read more
Coping with Sadness and Emotional Eating
Thursday, January 19, 2017      2 comments

On Monday my husband's cousin died from a rare, rapid and aggressive cancer. We had just three days from the time we learned he was terminal until he was gone. I am sad and I am having some issues with emotional eating. So far I am choosing to a... Read more
Focus on Health and the Weight Comes Too
Wednesday, January 11, 2017      2 comments

I realized that I haven't weighed again since I came back this time. I'm fine with that since losing weight isn't my focus (although I do have a ticker down there with a goal). I grabbed the scale this morning just after breakfast and I'm down 3... Read more
Why I HATE Morning Pages
Tuesday, January 10, 2017      1 comments

So I started writing Morning Pages last week. If you're not familiar it's a technique taught by Julia Cameron of "The Artists Way" (and a lesser known work called "The Writer's Diet") and it's supposed to help blocked creatives get unblocked and... Read more
Holy Cow It's Cold!
Saturday, January 07, 2017      1 comments

Got out today to go to auditions. Went out to eat after. Walked a couple of blocks to the restaurant. Hands ache still. We southern folks aren't built for this kind of weather! I really think I'm going to have to join a gym in order to get... Read more
Snow Day In The South
Friday, January 06, 2017      2 comments

I live in Memphis. In Memphis when a snowflake is predicted the shelves of the grocery stores empty of bread, milk and eggs (I've often wondered why those specific items have to do with snow survival but I digress). In Memphis when snow actually... Read more

I had my follow-up with the cardiologist today. We have agreed on a more conservative course of action FIRST before going to the cath lab. He added a vasodilator to my other meds and I will go back in 3 months. For the first time since all this ... Read more
Words, Words, Words
Monday, January 02, 2017      1 comments

I'm doing morning pages and I feel like they are exhausting my supply of words for the day. I hate them which probably means they're exactly what I need to be doing right now. Trust the process. Trust. The. Process.... Read more
New Years 2017
Sunday, January 01, 2017      2 comments

I've been back a week. For 4 of the last 7 days my blood sugar has been below 200. I'm hitting my targets most days. I have an appointment with my cardiologist on Thursday to discuss the images and data from my most recent hospitalization and ma... Read more
Healthy Christmas
Monday, December 26, 2016      7 comments

Enjoyed everything I chose and wanted to enjoy today. Not about to be deprived on Christmas. Still made my goals. Go me! This wasn't the Christmas I planned or wanted but I think perhaps it is the Christmas that I needed. Taking care of ev... Read more
"May I return...to the beginning..."
Saturday, December 24, 2016      6 comments

I'm back after a long season of well suck to be honest...a few days after my last blog post my sister-in-law helped herself to all of my parents-in-law's savings and I slid into a spiral that is just now finally bottoming out. During that interv... Read more
