The Right Motivation?

Ever since I started blogging back in 2006 I have periodically complained about my fluffiness. At that time I had a fairly good excuse for it – all the weight I’d gained while going through chemotherapy and various issues and treatments (mostly steroids) after cancer (but because of stupid cancer). That card’s been played, though,…

Just A Quick Chat

Hola, Amigos! I don’t have time to hang out for very long, but I just had to post a quick update. My folks flew in from Little Rock on Wednesday (don’t even ask if their arms are tired because that joke is so old and corny it does not bear acknowledging) and we’ve been enjoying…

Presidents’ Day And Other Happenings

Happy Presidents’ Day – especially those of you who get the day off of school or work. Personally I’d rather be celebrating spring. A warm, but not hot, sunny day with the windows open and the smell of fragrant flowers wafting through a very clean and dust free house (it’s my fantasy, isn’t it?). While…

Where’s A Drill Sergeant When I Need One?

You may recall I wrote about Losing Weight And Other Inconveniences back at the beginning of June. In this self-prophesying post I mentioned I would be down a size by the end of July. I forgot to tell you, however, that I was talking about July 2010. Which is a good thing because there’s only…

Losing Weight And Other Inconveniences

As you might know, I’ve been on Weight Watchers for a month or so now and I’m having success. Very sssslllloooowwwww success, but success nonetheless. I’ll do really well counting my points for a week or so and then there’s this party and that picnic and another get together and the points go to pot.…

Sickies, Weight, Age, and Other Depressing Subjects

I’m almost afraid of jinxing myself by typing this, but since I’m not the superstitious type I’m going to type it anyway. Everyone in my family has been sick except for me. Taylor started it off, to be quickly followed by Katie and Todd. Apparently all those immune system workouts at the preschool last year…

Here’s What’s Going On

The first week of my new job has gone pretty well. I have so much to learn, but once I can work for more than 15 minutes without having to ask a question it’s going to be great. For all concerned. Yesterday I spoke for a MOPS group in Bechtelsville (how fun is that to…

Blah, Blah, Blah…

I feel like I’ve got nothing to say. “When have you ever let that stop you before?”, you might be asking. And you’re right! I’ve never let the absence of something to say stop me. So welcome to today’s installment of Mundane Musings. Remember a few weeks ago I was all pumped about starting Weight…

Starting Over

I’ve done Weight Watchers (this time) for a week now. I’ve counted points and managed to get some exercise in here and there. I drank a lot of water and tried to choose fruits and veggies over non-fruits and veggies. And what do I have to show for it? I’m already one-third of the way…

I Can’t Believe I Said That!

Yesterday I turned on the 5:00 news to see a horrific sight. You may have even seen it on the national news. A large, luxury condominium complex in Conshohocken was destroyed by an 8 alarm fire. Apparently it had been going on for quite some time when I started watching and by then two entire…
