I broke down and put the A/C on yesterday, but I think I'm turning it off before bed tonight. The temperature is going down, the humidity isn't as brutal and it's supposed to rain. I love hearing the rain on the canal. I've been on a work o... Read more

Nothing like a Chooch in the pool to get a good mad on. Today was a swim day. I got to the Y early. Decided to swim 30 minutes or a half mile, whichever was longer. Turns out today it was about equal. I had a really frustrating day, so swi... Read more

We have NSVs - Non Scale Victories, right? What do we call those victories when we get some exercise in despite our bad attitude? Non Sloth Victories? Last night was a rough night for sleeping. We had the windows open. I've mentioned before... Read more

It's official. LESLIELENORE and I completed the D&F 5K this morning. The time on the clock as we passed the finish line was 33:07 and 33:08, but posted time was 33:12. We want our 4 seconds back and as far as I'm concerned we got them. It wasn't... Read more

As LESLIELENORE mentioned in her blog today, I'm driving out to her neck of the woods in upstate NY to run a 5K with her. I'll leave tomorrow morning and get there in plenty of time for dinner and a reasonable bedtime. I don't know if she r... Read more

I just need to share wonderful news. This evening we had a big event for work. At the end of the event, I was approached by an employee who left 5 years ago because she had a high risk pregnancy. Five years ago she was a single mother... Read more
Not bad for a bad day
Monday, June 10, 2013      7 comments

Today was a glass-chewing kinda day. Just when I thought the stress level couldn't get any higher, it did. I left the office an hour late with a pounding head, clenched jaw and churning stomach. Ugh. But I also remembered throughout the day, my ... Read more
