Thank you for all the kind comments on my blog yesterday. I'm glad that Dad has had good care with the ER and that he got a follow up appointment so quickly (on Thursday). I will be driving out Wednesday evening and staying overnight so I can ta... Read more

Today has been a busy day. I started the day off going to church early to see our head priest's granddaughter be baptized. It was lovely. Baby barely cried at all, except when she got dunked in the water. That's always a bit traumatizing. But th... Read more

Well this is my second time at this blog-- I accidentally closed the browser! Darn! Today was a quiet and uneventful day. I went for a walk this morning, ran errands, came home, and studied. I did make it to church this evening. Friday even... Read more

Today has been my lazy, slothful day this week. I get one day a week to be lazy, and I picked today. I woke up late, feeling very tired, but got up and ate breakfast and studied. I wanted to go for a walk, but I was just so tired in the afternoo... Read more

Today was a good day. I got up and spent the morning cooking for the week. I made deviled potato salad for a vegan sandwich spread. I then realized I was missing some of the ingredients for dinner. I cleaned up the kitchen and spent the rest of ... Read more

I tried to get to church this morning, but it was at 8 am, and I'm not much good before 9, particularly on Mondays. Monday is my usual day to sleep in. So I slept in, got up late, and spent the day doing homework and then went to church in the e... Read more

I was just looking at my SP stats, and I have been on Spark People for 6 and a quarter years, which I find amazing. The first year or two I didn't use it a whole lot, but now I'm on every day, using the trackers and earning points. Earning point... Read more

This weekend is working out to be wonderful, but very busy. Today was the annual Ladies' Tea at church. We have wonderful little finger foods with our tea and a speaker. One of our priests spoke and it was very interesting. And I didn't go for s... Read more

So I've really been struggling with night time eating this week and last week. I'm okay until about midnight. If I'm not sleeping I get really hungry. I know if I get up and eat something, I'll sleep, so I do, but I tend to eat bad stuff. Last n... Read more

Today was a quiet day. I worked on homework and cleaned today. I had planned on going to church this evening, but it was raining so hard when it was time to go and I wasn't keen to drive in it. It rained and thundered all afternoon and evening a... Read more

It's been a busy couple of days and I've barely had time to Spark, much less blog. I spent Saturday running errands all day and all evening, first by myself, and then with a friend who doesn't have a car. On Sunday, I went to a music recital at ... Read more

It's getting quite late, so I'll keep this short. I managed to get in a nice long walk today and get a lot of my homework done that's due this weekend. I should be able to knock out everything else that's due tomorrow. I'm hoping to get another ... Read more

This week has been stressful, but the stress is mostly out of the way as I finished two classes-- one yesterday and one today. For my Gov't Accounting class, I got an 80% on my final-- and that was my third try! I figured considering how hard th... Read more

So in the Orthodox Church, in the weeks preceding Lent, one of hymns sung in Psalm 136, "By the Waters of Babylon." I've been singing it all week, even though I only know the first couple of lines. I know the whole Psalm by heart because I say i... Read more
