This has been a challenging Thanksgiving season. First, we had to cancel our travel plans and are staying home, just the two of us, for Thanksgiving. "But that's okay," we said, "we can finally celebrate our anniversary, get a hotel for one nigh... Read more

This weekend is being spent deep in work mode - a computer project that requires much concentration. I used to use this project, which happens every November, as an excuse for junk food - "It's so boring, I deserve a snack to keep me going." Bu... Read more

I have a client who owns a Greek restaurant, and I can never go in there without coming out with a TON of food - she insists on feeding me! Yesterday it was a dozen spanikopita, 5 cabbage rolls, and three stuffed peppers! Fortunately, I had comp... Read more

That's what my life has been the last few weeks! First travel, then a really dreadful chest virus that had me coughing up a lung when I did more than climb up the stairs, now a UTI. I'm kind of frustrated with the piling on. But I'm still watchi... Read more

The last couple days have not been good ones for me, and I think I need a change in attitude. As we move toward Yule, it's easy to fall into the pattern of wanting to hibernate and then being mad at myself for being "lazy." I'm going to try a ne... Read more

That's what I told myself when I woke up. Nope, not working out. I slept badly and I'm tired and sore. That's what I told myself as I pulled on my workout clothes. No way am I working out. I'm still getting over my chest cold and I need mor... Read more

Turns out that a good deal of my sad mood was because I was coming down with a terrible chest cold that's had me hacking up a lung all week. I am getting a little better, but walking up and down the stairs more than once has me coughing hard ag... Read more

I would like to be writing a glowing post-con report about how much fun I had at World Fantasy (and I did), but for some reason today I am feeling like simply crying incessantly or crawling back into bed. This is not the start of November I was ... Read more
Vacation day one
Friday, October 28, 2011      2 comments

6am flight, with no time to eat, no time at airport, essentially 8 hours of travel time, on top of a night's sleep, without food. I was a little cranky. And succumbed to Eggs Benedict. After breakfast met up with people, then while they we... Read more

Today is my first month Sparkiversary. How am I celebrating it? By having my first serious bout of soreness and miseries. I wouldn't worry about it much, but the pain is in joints. Taking a day off from working out. Hoping a day of rest is ... Read more
