My girls and I made a pact when Helena was born that we would do our best to give her a good self-image. She is 6 years old and in first grade now and in the 97th% in height and weight. She is by no means fat. She eats well, drinks her water,... Read more

Often times, I use the topics in the teams to remind myself to do things. It dawned on me today that I don't often answer the more difficult questions, such as what stresses me. I think I need to get honest with myself most days and answer the... Read more

I sat here thinking and realized that I am moving forward in a good way. When around family last weekend, I just enjoyed them. I didn't let little things bother me. I got in some good talks with my hubby. Now that I am back, I know the... Read more

I am going to Detroit for the weekend. My sister, Barbara's memorial service is Friday morning. I am not sure what my frame of mind will be. I don't think it's really hit me that she's gone. On Saturday, my great-niece will get married. Th... Read more

The AT&T technician showed up at almost 6 pm. He went outside to check the connection coming into the house. It was broken and easily fixed. If only everything was this easy! I was back at one doctor at 7:15 this morning for a test on my... Read more
