The End of Godzilla
Thursday, August 08, 2013      10 comments

The most exciting part of this blog is going to be the title. The exterminator arrived (at the expense of the condo association). Within a minute he assured me that Godzilla was mice and not a squirrel. (He showed me the droppings.) That wa... Read more
God's Love for Me
Tuesday, August 06, 2013      9 comments

Last night I made reference to a head shrinking session where the doctor hit a very tender spot with me and got me crying. I've been stuffing so much emotion down deep for so long that I very, very rarely cry any more and certainly NOT about thi... Read more
Physical and Spiritual Healing (it's a two-fer day)
Monday, August 05, 2013      6 comments

In other news, my heel is not healing. It is still sore. I realized it isn't bugging me as much because I have changed how I walk to avoid the soreness. I still hobble when I get up in the morning and walking barefoot (flat footed) makes it wors... Read more

That Should Keep the Monkeys Quiet
Sunday, July 21, 2013      9 comments

I'm a hot mess. My butt is sore. My legs feel like spaghetti. And the monkeys have shut up. Since the East End Road Race was closed, I figured I had to do something else to quiet the chattering brain monkeys. The Hubster had a project to fi... Read more

Daily Mantra Suggestions?
Saturday, July 20, 2013      7 comments

It's been a slow week for exercise for me. Girl problems are getting in the way (UTI). (Is that TMI?) Work pressure has been tremendous. I had to lay off two more employees and one or two furlough days are in the future. If someone tells you the... Read more
NSV-Early Run

Tuesday, July 09, 2013      10 comments

I killed the swim tonight. I found the rhythm. I was able to do one lap after the other and I wasn't gasping for air. Form was good. In fact, form was better than ever. Sandy the Swim Instructor noticed, complimented me and even said, "you aren'... Read more
