We got hammered with snow yesterday. We had 2 days of wintry mix, slushy mess. Forecast was more of it. Holy Snow Out Of Nowhere, Batman! A foot of the white fluffiness later and my plans to travel to Chicago were cancelled and we had to close t... Read more

It's been a good weekend. I kept my date with the treadmill yesterday morning. I got to the Y early since I had to be at work at 9:00. We have a volunteer tax program for low-income workers, and I love helping out. I was home by mid-aftern... Read more

Despite my last post 2 weeks ago, the bodysnatchers didn't get me. Nothing earth shattering going on. I just got wicked busy at work and had some "girlie ailments" that no one really wants to know about. I swear I've gained something like 500,00... Read more

Yesterday's work out was an experience. The H planned a very long work out. I was set for a 3 mile run and maybe a swim. I had a new memoir in my gym bag and I was all ready to settle in and read in the women's locker room. (It's very nice at my... Read more

I had the day off from work. I also had plans to tackle a certification that I need for work, but alas, I just didn't do it. I'll feel some angst about this and if I'd done it this morning, I'd be completely relaxed. But I didn't. The world won'... Read more

It snowed today. Not a huge amount - about 4 or 5 inches. Enough to make a mess of the morning commute. I left early, but still made it in 15 minutes late. I think you know that I'm the exec at a social service agency. We have a lot of old peopl... Read more
