To blog or not to blog, that is the question.
In my family, September is known as the month of cake, cake, cake and pie. We have four birthdays in the month, and those are just the ones in our immediate family. If you count aunts, uncles, grandparents and anniversaries, the month is packed. We start out in grand style, with my birthday coming first.… Continue reading The Month of Cake, Cake, Cake and Pie
I haven't posted much lately. Or at all. I haven't had a lot to say. My health routine fell by the wayside, and I've been battling an almost crippling fatigue. Turns out, the two things are related. In a strange twist of events, the kind that only God can bring about, I got a trip… Continue reading Reviving the Blog
I'm not sure why getting a little exercise is such a chore for me. I'm not a fan of heat, and I'm not a fan of sweating. I'm sure that has something to do with it. I've been diagnosed as having anxiety disorder, and when that raises its ugly little head (which it does without… Continue reading Checking in 11/17/2013

But I'm back, and that's good, right? Yes. That's good. Had a busy day today, but I still managed… Continue reading Um …. Yearly Check-in?
A perfect 0 today. Not up, not down. Just maintained. That's okay with me. I didn't get in a lot of exercise this week. It was cold--too cold to walk the dog comfortably. Okay, I could have exercised if I'd been able to dredge up the energy to walk all the way across the room… Continue reading Check-in January 14
As you probably all know by now, we've made the decision to move to Florida. It's a no-brainer in some ways -- the chance to be closer to Vanessa, Ian and the kids. The chance to have a fresh start. I'm almost giddy over the chance to leave behind the most painful memories of my… Continue reading Counting Down …. 9 Days to Go
Having a bit of a struggle the past couple of days after getting an unexpected termination of lease notice, which means we have to be out of our place by October 23 and we (so far) have no idea where we're going. Luckily, we've created a foolproof atmosphere -- no snacks around except sugar-free pudding… Continue reading Struck by Lightning
