Authenticity, values, being true to ourselves

While working out this morning I was pondering the female midlife crisis. This came up on Monday during training with J and has been an ongoing, informal survey the last few days with me askingĀ other friends in the age range of susceptibility to such things. The responses have been interesting. The friends I asked are…

TM Tuesday – inside/outside stuff

So I had an appointment with TM this morning. It went well. It was good, even. And I came home in a better/worse sort of shape than when I arrived at his office. Such is life in therapy and exploring uncomfortable stuff. Thing is, I know what was said and discussed are like grass seeds…

Training #25 – Live like we’re dying

Monday morning training with J. It's a nice way to start the week, especially since I had such uneven and truly crappy periods in the weekend. Weekend ick was mostly self-created drama, although I think everyone everywhere I went throughout my all-day Saturday errand day was feeling cranky. I started a post to recap the…

End on a good one

No, not closing the blog or anything else so dramatic or drastic. M, walking by this morning and glancing at my screen, saw the title and was momentarily worried that I was giving up blogging.

Servant of the calendar, slave to the clock

Our contractor started work on rebuilding the decks at our home this week. And as these things usually go for us, what was projected to be a week or 8 days is now realistically more like 2 to 3 weeks worth of work. Longer if he paints the entire house after finishing the decks. We…

Food – I’m on a good track

The sun was out today, but breezy and windy. At my meeting with the RD today I came armed with a packet of kleenex and hopes that my allergy medications would not run out of time during my appointment. Nothing worse than sitting across the desk from someone sneezing and having to blow my nose…

This day in history

Today marks 20 years since my oldest officially left us, declared legally brain dead after brain bleed. It was amongst the most anguishing 24 hours of my entire life thus far, and unforgettable because it is so much part of who she was to me and to us. I remember the day she was born,…
