Once again, my obsession about the number on the scale has supplanted all other, more normal, functional thoughts, which, heretofore, may have held their esteemed spots on a very active front cerebral burner. Another metaphor: It is as if I have, in one long swipe, sent all books on the bookshelf, save one large & […]

Not necessarily in that order. These will be somewhat brief entries, just a few thoughts on each, due to time constraints, but hopefully of interest to the reader. Sometimes I wonder if I should reinstate spellcheck – I do tend toward typos but not sure which is more time- consuming. Plus, spellcheck comes out with […]

I still have a cold and am dragging a bit. I am sure I will hear more about wimping out of my 5 a.m. walk this morning with Jennifer, but when I got back home last night after my first day back at work at nine p.m., I knew I should sleep in, which I […]

The moment before I stepped on the scale this morning, I tried to hazard a guess at the extent of damage. 138.8? 138.2? 140? 137.2? Anything less than 136? Could that be a possibility? Doubtful. . . but It had been nearly two weeks, and I had no idea. Oh, well, I thought. . . […]

Thanks to Woody’s ingenious recommendations about what route to take home, and thanks to his excellent driving, which I had the pleasure of experiencing for the entire trip, we made the journey in record time. I am thrilled to announce that total travel time was a bit under 5 hours, and that is including two […]

Last Day Issues

The last day of vac is always sad.  My fave thing in the world is spending time with fam, as emotionally wrought as it can be, which, on the last day of vac, usually reaches a peak. There is always at least one meltdown per vac, and that was no less the case this time […]

It began to drizzle just as I was done with breakfie and all set to go for a trail run with Jenna.  She called to poop out!  I never would have previously dreamed that this hard core fitness fanatic would be ascared of a little rain.  Even though it. ecame a full- fledged steady drencher […]

My brother, Curtis, tells me I am the most intense person he knows.  This seems to be his focus of teasing this vac, which, in the scheme of things, is pretty benign, since beieng intense is something I pride myself on.  I do not mind that “laid back” is not a term anyone would ever […]
