I am half-watching someone juggling a Rubik’s Cube and solving it while juggling. Max sent it. Max has decided that is (one of many) his next goal. Guess how many pieces of fruit I had today, by way of avoiding overeating other stuff because I was for some reason starving all day long! Lots. One […]

Anxiety Redux With Another List

Not sure why, but I am feeling extremely jittery right now. I would love nothing more than to take a bounding leap clear out of my skin and run down the street screeching at the top of my, which, btw, have a tremendous capacity to create random noise; I know this would make me feel […]

Intense: C’est moi! I could be doing just about anything right now, but what do I choose to do? I will give you a hint. Here it is, a Monday night, and I am . . .blogging! For a Monday night, this is highly unusual. Since I generally get home way too late on Mondays […]

I finally come to what I have been wanting to do all day. Blogging. It is quite late, nearly bedtime, so I hope I can both concentrate on what I am attempting to do and also not make too many typos, because that really slows the process. Typing is much harder when it is virtual. […]

For some reason, I am having to virtually type vertically instead of my preferred horizontally. The iPad is supposed to turn the virtual page when I turn the iPad, but there appears to have arisen what could only be called a glitch. A glitch I do not like, but as another one of those seemingly […]

Loves, Hates, and In-Betweens.

There are always so many permutations and combinations of things to worry about all the time, in this day and age and in every day and age before us. Sometimes, I find myself falling into the abyss, the hell pit of worry. It can be all-encompassing. Worry fever tends to reach its pitch these days […]

This will be a short one, because in 15 minutes I have to head off to work. I got up extra early today and raced home from the gym, showered and dressed, all in less than half an hour, and that was with lots of red lights on the way home. Why the rush? I […]

Valentine’s Journey Of Life

In a loving show of support, my dear husby, who skipped lunch on Valentine’s Day, and my sweet adolescent, Mollie, joined me at Journeys of Life for the BodyChangers Heart’s Desire Event. The only bad thing: it started at 6:30 pm and ended at about 8:30, and I was starved out of my mind by […]

The Cat’s Meow

When you have a cat to whom you have become quite close, especially if you have known the cat for three or more years, you get to understand what the cat says. For instance, each cat, just like us, speaks a similar intra-species language, but has, her own unique way, within that language, of expressing […]

Weight Watchers update: I am happy to report that I was up a mere .4 pounds today, which is hardly anything, for those unfamiliar with basic math. Also on scale at home, I had lost two pounds since yesterday, so it was just water weight. My sweet husby, cb, gave me a few wonderfoo Valentine’s […]
