Not a bad day today. Got my hair cut and colored. (I desperately was in need of both! I was just feeling awful about myself between the weight and how my hair looked.) Phew. Feel much better. Ate hamburger, fries and a small hot fudge sund... Read more

Feeling really down right now. Hormones, stress, cramps, PMS. Also, found out that Gus is in Illinois (too far) and Gordon is pending adoption. (Why didn't they put that on Petfinder???) That deflated me. Still waiting to hear from the bree... Read more

Cleaned out my home office! It was cluttery! Now, tomorrow, I begin getting my work caught up, getting things back under control again. I do feel better without being surrounded by the chaos. Looking at one huge pile, but just going to start... Read more

I added a few goals today. One of my frustrations in life these last few years is the clutter in my house. This has added to my overwhelming sense of chaos and my life being out of control. The last couple of weeks I have tried to begin to ta... Read more
