Our house is filled with clutter. This does not mean the floors are not passable or that we are hoarders. In fact, we are constantly throwing things away. And yet, they continue accumulating, like wire hangers do. When we had our bathroom remodeled two years ago, of course from the time it was gutted to […]

Everyone in my fam is a lover of books and reading. We also like to write. Many folks like to write. Most are unpublished. But even without being published, writing has its advantages. For me, it is restorative, cathartic, reflective, and sometimes creates a repository of memories. It lets me play with and (try to […]

Once again! I never expected that running a program would be anything less than challenging, but did not anticipate sportsmanship to be one of the main issues i would confront. As the reader is aware, I have been working on building a hospital-based, outpatient weight loss center. It has taken years, but I now have […]

But tomorrow is the turning point day! Groundhog Day! This is the only day in February I look forward to besides of course the last day of February, and this year, February I believe has inly 28 days, and daylight savings begins on March 8. Being outdoors in this weather is very nice when I […]

Although I got enough sleep this weekend, I have just finished a rather. bog yunch and feel quite drowsy, which is disturbing. Because it means I almost definitely will end up taking a nap, which sounds like and is a lovely indulgence, but one that i can hardly afford. On the one hand, I semi-thought […]

Surprise! The talk went well, better even than I could have anticipated, even though the amplifier never arrived as was promised and the three motivational interviewing clips that I actually purchased the DVD for, had agonized over and had taken hours of viewing to select just the right ones, could not be heard by audience […]

What else is new? I am not as nervous as i would have been, say, 10 years ago, or definitely than I would have been pre-sertraline/Buspar, I mean O am not paralyzed and i will probably be able to sleep some, but I am definitely feeling a bit unsettled.

It is hard to believe that this is already the second day of vac! We drove to Philly yesterday. For some reason, during my portion of the drive, I was exceedingly sleepy and could hardly keep my eyes open, even while listening to Dan Savage beautifully, in the way only Dan can, narrate his “American […]

cb does not welcome 3 day weekends, and in fact, seems disappointed whenever they pop up. But I very much welcome them, because there is suddenly time to do stuff. I am excited! It seems like forever since i have had a chance to blog. I have been too busy filled with such anxiety – […]
