Monday, January 29, 2018      1 comments

It's Monday...and I have had some Sunday evening dreads and Monday morning groggies. It has been a good first full week of classes, so there is no need of worry, but I tend to anticipate tough times each weekend. Silly, really... I did se... Read more
Tingling in my right hand this morning...
Saturday, January 27, 2018      1 comments

It is a bit difficult to grab my shoe laces and tie the bow with my right hand tingling just now. I don't think my hands were tingling when I sat at the harp a few moments a go. What starts the tingling? I wore wrist support on both wrist... Read more
Tuesday is trash day ... the SP perspective
Tuesday, January 23, 2018      1 comments

It is nice to be able to wake up slowly, have a cup of coffee without having to gulp it down. The house is relatively quiet. I quickly turned off the news once my spouse had headed out the door to work. Now, I have spent an hour with S... Read more

I am up doing household chores (I have an old, silly movie on in the background) and am intentionally making more trips across the house to earn more steps. Yesterday, I enjoyed the fact that a buzz from my FitBit suggested that I get up an... Read more
Back to school dreads
Wednesday, January 10, 2018      2 comments

I do like the beginning of each new semester. I enjoy meeting all my students. I like the feeling of a fresh start -- the feeling of potential. At the same time, I can worry and become anxious about the commute, the prep, the e-mails and ... Read more

Goal Setting: Add more music...
Monday, January 08, 2018      1 comments

When opportunities to play in an ensemble arise, I jump at that chance. I am very fortunate to have friends at church that are great musicians and also enjoy playing in groups. Too often, however, I find myself saying to myself "oh...I need to... Read more

I have been out of school for holiday break for several weeks now and I finally took time to make my husband and I a new dish. I am pretty good at pouring things out of a can. Very good at pulling meals out of a box and microwaving. My passion... Read more
Not consistent yet...need a good, doable plan.
Tuesday, December 27, 2016      2 comments

Just stating the obvious. Through the holidays I have not eaten well, nor have I been consistently active. There were times I hibernated on the couch. You complaining can lead to this member hiding from the negativity. I need t... Read more
