Birthday Girl

I went to bed last night at about 11:53 pm and was still 58 years old. When I awakened at 6 a.m., I may have been 58 still, because I believe I was born at 6:30 a.m. A long, long time ago. But very soon after awakening, was the transition to 59, which occurred quietly,without […]

Tomorrow is the talk at Birch. It is late and I have to get up at 5:45. But K am watching the beginning of a crappy movie that I saw the second half of earlier today – could not see beginning of movie because I was involved with doing paperwork for my Mom. Everyone else […]

Self-imposed stress

Moment of insight: I am crazy. A certified and certifiable lunatic of the highest order. 99% of the stress I am experiencing, the stomach tied in knots – Self-imposed. Why do I do this to myself? When I say yes to things, it is because I really want to say yes and I am trying […]

Going to bed soon. Just wrote a description of BodyChangers and a critique of a weight loss program. I am going to have to ask for advice about the BodyChangers description, but at least I have written a draft. I will ask for help. Now I am freed up to hopefully finish my powerpoint for […]

Another Short One

There is too much craziness. Not just talking about the wing nuts with all these ludicrous conspiracy theories. I am talking about my schedule. The day goes by and I realize I have not even logged my food intake, which is totally unheard of. There have been times I have chosen not to log, but […]

The Fashion Show – It Was A Good Day

Remember? Whenever something positive happened to Mom, or when things went well, Dad would say, “It was a good day.”. It is funny how not a day goes by that I do not miss my Dad, and that memories of his words, special turns of phrase, voice, facial expressions, mannerisms, and jokes are note evoked […]

Fortunate to Have Some Blogging Time

Another day of sheer craziness. It is now almost six and I really should be doing other things but I have done many other things already today and need to take this break. The thing that made me decide to skip yoga tonight was the development of a migraine during a long-anticipated meeting this afternoon. […]

Yittoo Seep

This morning, I awakened feeling pretty stressed out about all the things I had to do. Two things seemed like massive intrusions that would interfere with what I really felt I should be doing. I should come right out and admit that of items on the long list in my head, I ended up accomplishing […]

The Big Seep

The Big Sleep, I know, is slang for death, yes, I realize this, not being stupid, although I have learned through both the kindness of others and my own astute observations of others’ reactions to me, that some idiots have thought that I was prone to asking “stupid” questions. To which the typical rejoinding platitude […]

A Head Start On The Kneasles

My physician friend, Jennifer Grandis, has officially diagnosed me with the kneasles, or as we might say in Cholegatroll, kneezoos. This diagnosis was conferred upon yours truly in the context of a literal curbside consultation, an advantage of arising at 5 a.m. to meet her for our customary weekly walk. I should have made the […]
