Tomorrow, I will go back to the day job for the first time in sixty-four days. Summer is over for me in less than twelve hours. Nearly half that time traveling and writing; it has been wonderful. Next Spring if the editing gods are kind I will have two new pieces ready for publication. But, my … Continue reading Work-Life Balance vs. Dreams
My heart broke recently. If my life was a book, the reader would have seen it coming before me. They might have been screaming at me to turn around. Most of my friends did. They saw the doom on the horizon and braced themselves. But, I am stubborn and kept sailing toward it. Right off the edge.
Writing was slow this weekend. Not because Captain A returned, but thanks to a lovely winter cold. I spent most of Saturday in a hazy followed by a nap. Then another nap.

This past week, I hit the scale and discovered that I have lost a total of thirty … Continue reading To Weight or not to Weight

Attacking me when I am just beginning to get things done or so I like to think. The truth is as hard as I work, I am afraid at times and … Continue reading Yet Another Manic Monday
Thirty days without soda and so far I haven't retreated to the comforts of carbonation. I feel better and today, my jeans glided on instead of being pulled and tugged while I contort myself into them. I have been trying to think of what to work on for my next thirty day challenge. I want … Continue reading My New Challenge
6 A.M. ~ Sunday Morning and I am falling off my yoga mat in my living room. Literally. Thankful that it is just me, the puppies and my friend, Sonia. It was Sonia's brilliant idea to wake up and early and work out. She also took mercy on me and ended our experiment shortly the … Continue reading Downward Facing Dog Day
