Finally a moment

It’s been a week since I had a moment to sit down, let alone write. Frankly, it’s been a little TOO busy around here, and I’m glad to be facing a three-day weekend to tackle a few things. Almost every day this week I’ve had something I meant to write about, but it’s just been …

Why I won’t let one up get me down

Not that this week has been easy; I went grocery shopping yesterday and at one point found myself in the candy …

Work in Progress

I haven’t had a lot to write about this week because I have been concentrating on other matters. On Monday I joined Weight Watchers. I announced this on my Facebook account, but I (weirdly) wasn’t sure about putting it on my blog. It somehow seemed so permanent, but I need to find ways to hold …
