Day 92 - What a week
Friday, April 02, 2021      8 comments

Can't believe it is already Friday. Watching TV and fell asleep sitting down. Can't believe I made it through the week. So much work to get caught up on that I feel like the to do list is never going to end. I want to get organized. At... Read more
Day 91 - Boy has life changed
Thursday, April 01, 2021      10 comments

It has been a while since I blogged and it is for good reason. I lost my Dad on March 14th. He had a wonderful full life but I miss him so much. He did 17 years and two days after my Mom. Once he passed away life seemed to chan... Read more

Day 68 - Looking back a year
Wednesday, March 10, 2021      11 comments

It is strange to realize that it has been a year since we began to hear about this virus. I was in Arizona for a Board meeting. We washed our hands a lot but there were no masks or social distancing. I flew on a plane. Within a week the maj... Read more

Monday, March 08, 2021      9 comments

I had a day of meetings. No lie I had 8 meetings today. Not sure how I am supposed to get all my work done when I am in meetings all day. Plus exercise, blog, drink my water, eat, get some sleep. I really would like a day to just sit and rea... Read more
Day 66 - Back at it!
Sunday, March 07, 2021      6 comments

Maybe having a break yesterday was the push I needed today. I got caught up with my Spark friends. I did my planks. I easily made it to 10,000 steps and got more than my 15 flights of stairs. I can tell I made progress in my workout. And I... Read more

Sunday, March 07, 2021      5 comments

Realized I never blogged yesterday. We had a small 85th birthday celebration for my DH's Uncle. He was so happy. He has some mental disabilities but incredible common sense and one of the strongest work ethics I know. He spent the mornin... Read more

Friday, March 05, 2021      8 comments

Wow! I am exhausted. I am not sure why I am so tired. I don't think there was anything particularly different but by 3 o'clock I barely could keep my eyes open. Of course since I can't take a nap at work I got through the day and now I am wi... Read more
Day 63 - Mad About You
Thursday, March 04, 2021      9 comments

I had a bit of a rough day emotionally dealing with some things. Normally I would have turned to food. In a way I did as I ordered a 6 oz. steak with steamed broccoli and a baked potato. I treated myself but I didn't go too overboard with fri... Read more

Tuesday, March 02, 2021      6 comments

We have food that we need to quick and I am hungry so I am cooking chicken breasts and broccoli at midnight. Not the best time to have dinner but a girl has to eat. Better to eat something healthy than to eat junk food. It is crazy that it wi... Read more
Day 60 - We are always harder on ourselves
Monday, March 01, 2021      9 comments

I finally had my work review today. It went fairly well. It was a bit disorganized at the beginning and I had a hard time getting a word in but overall it was much better than I could have imagined. I think we are always harder on ourselves. ... Read more

Friday, February 26, 2021      6 comments

Not in a good place right now. Very frustrating day at work and I know it is time to move on but I haven't figured out how to do that. I realize you can't change other people and I have to stop expecting people to behave differently. People n... Read more
