Day 426B: This, That, T'other, and So On...
Friday, January 11, 2013      8 comments

God bless the En-Aitch-Ess. But that doesn't mean it's not without its flaws. In 2002 I lost my medical insurance. It had nothing to do with my moving to the UK; it had everything to do with a particularly nasty divorce. Between 1... Read more
Day 426A: The Morning Quickie
Friday, January 11, 2013      8 comments

I deliberately left the alarm off for this morning - another in the ongoing trial of "If I go to bed at the same time as always, just how late will I sleep?" So far running about half-an-hour to a full-hour (which was this morning). Now what I h... Read more
Day 425: Near Miss? or Inches from a Clean Getaway?
Thursday, January 10, 2013      13 comments

It's only the tenth day of the year, and it was a close call - I almost didn't get to a blog, any blog, today. Long story about the gym and physio and all that brouhaha, but it can wait. Bottom line - they tell me EYE have to wait. I don't ... Read more
Day 424B: The Evening Quickie
Wednesday, January 09, 2013      6 comments

Been one of those days, and it followed one of those nights: to bed late, disrupted sleep, up too early. I'm going to bed as soon as I post this. ... And now I'll post it. (Oh, ya gotta laff!) G'night, Sparklers, wherever you are! ... Read more
Day 424A: The Morning Quickie
Wednesday, January 09, 2013      9 comments

You know yesterday I pasted the link to GINNJEN1974's blog about welcoming newbies? Like Tina, I found it complicated to find new members. So I asked around and two of our fellow Sparklers came up with ideas: 1) The SP Community Messag... Read more
Day 423B: Remaining Resolutions
Tuesday, January 08, 2013      12 comments

Last month I was checking around to see what kind of suggestions and advice and whatnot I could find on resolutions. I was pleased to see there are some things I already do - such as reflecting on last year's resolutions to help determine what t... Read more

Haha. A couple days ago I read a blog by GINNJEN1974 - http://www.sparkpeople.c

Day 422: ZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz...
Monday, January 07, 2013      11 comments

That kind of says it all. The last week or so I've overslept more days than not. I set the alarm the same time I have for months (years, probably - I am a creature of habit), but inevitably I turn it off at some point, often before it rings... Read more
Day 421B: Sunday PM
Sunday, January 06, 2013      11 comments

I started on a blog early this morning, right after I posted the short one, but some people were coming to look at the house this afternoon so don't you know I got caught up in the whole clean 'n' tidy thing. So surprising how much time hou... Read more
Day 421A: Sunday AM
Sunday, January 06, 2013      10 comments

Back later, but they're ringing the changes for Sunday services and I thought I'd share a picture - not that we have any snow. Have a good'un, Sparklers - carpe diem... Read more
Day 420: The Ten Commitments, Part I
Saturday, January 05, 2013      13 comments

You know the drill regarding SMART goals, right? Well-developed goals should be: S: specific M: meaningful A: achievable R: relevant T: timebound I have seen other words in the acronym from time to time - such as "measurable" f... Read more
Day 419B: 2012 Scorecard
Friday, January 04, 2013      7 comments

I called last year's resolutions "The Ten Commitments." I thought ten would be a workable number, and - like SMART goals - I tried to write them down with specifics. How'd... Read more
Day 419A: Getting the ball rolling...
Friday, January 04, 2013      7 comments

I came across this: Distractability the sidewalk does not need dusting the road does not need re-painting the laundry does not need to be shoveled the dishes do not need to be talked to the sky will not fall as has been prov... Read more
Day 418: Now For Something Completely Different...
Thursday, January 03, 2013      8 comments

...I think that's an old line from Monty Python. I've been tinkering with a end-of-2012 / start-of-2013 blog, but I ran across a meme over on ONEKIDSMOM's page that (ahem) called to me. In a serendipitous moment I decided, aha, Blog o'the D... Read more
Day 417: And So It Begins...
Wednesday, January 02, 2013      9 comments

See that? It's only the second day of the new year and already I've paved a considerable stretch of The Road To Perdition with my good intentions, lol. On the bright side, I also got a few things done that needed doing, so I guess it'll all... Read more
