Holding patterns

As of today, G and K's wedding is officially a week away. I am looking forward to it; I know it will be a lovely and memorable event, a milestone in each of our lives. But I cannot WAIT for it to be over. The following Tuesday we leave for our annual 5 days of…

Shopping, dropping, not again soon-ing

Yesterday was all about wedding shopping. For M. And it was not fun for either of us, but since G and K's wedding is now less than 2 weeks away, it had to be done. As in most things, M and I have wildly different tastes. But in this case as well, we had wildly…

I got (almost) nothing today

Kind of a low-key, uneventful for blog fodder day. I ran into another training tribe member this morning I have not seen in a few months. This was a rare Sunday gym visit for me, because I missed on Wednesday and am still relatively obsessive about my 6 days gym time schedule. But it was…

The Dress and my gym crazy returns

After a very shopping-crazed few weeks I have found The Dress for G and K's wedding. There were 17 different dresses delivered to my home or office the last couple of weeks, and not only were there 17 different dresses, there were 17 different dresses in 2, sometimes 3 different sizes. Because I'm just not…

Health, wellness, and the randomness of today

It is lunch time for me and I realize not a single thought has crossed my mind all morning about what to talk about today. Typically I have several topics weaving and dodging for position, to see which flows from my brain to my fingertips to share here. Not today, though. I implemented my new earlier…

Work is Godzilla in my life right now

For awhile there, I really thought the whole better health quest with its diet and exercise components would be the thing that took over and dismantled life as I knew it the way the giant, fire-breathing lizard used try to do to Tokyo in the old movies. Instead, I think diet and exercise have been…

When good things happen

I was having the great debate about going to the gym, not going to the gym this morning. In the end I slept until 7:30, got up and thought longer and harder about not going, and then decided to just do pull myself together and get my practice completed. It's Sunday and I have standing…

Blogging bonk

One of my close friends was teasing me on text that I must be having "brain bonk" because of the benign, almost vacuous replies I have been sending. Perhaps it's true. It seems I have had little to report or talk about recently, due to the low-energy, relatively drama-free life I am leading lately. Yesterday I was…

27 dresses

Disclaimer: I haven't seen the movie and have no idea what the plot of it is/was, but the title has stuck with me and seems so appropriate right now. So a couple of weekends ago I found what feels like the perfect dress for my son's wedding in September. Since I wanted to think about…
