Almost There

Alright - major life happening number two is this Saturday. Woot. Once that's out of the way, I'll take maybe another week or so to re-spawn as they say in Nerd Fitness. I've got to figure out the new plan as I will no longer be an "I" but a part of a "we".  There's … Continue reading Almost There

Overwhelm

Definition (as it appears in my life right now): find a new place to live (pay app fees, deposit, 1st month's rent) fix up the normal wear and tear on the old place so as to hopefully get some of my deposit back pack find a storage unit / move non-essentials to storage unit to … Continue reading Overwhelm

Random Bits & Pieces, again

July Camp NaNo I was off to a pretty decent start - got a few words or so ahead of the game then didn't do a lick of writing these past two (or is it 3?) days. Sigh. So much going on right now (as you'll see below) that I'm living in "overwhelmed" mode. I … Continue reading Random Bits & Pieces, again

Let’s Try This Again.

So, my first four week fitness / life challenge comes to a close this evening. I called it The Force Awakens (yeah, I thought it was cute at the time; definitely proved to be overly optimistic, not to mention wildly out of order). Anyway, about mid-way through, The Empire struck Back and I lost my … Continue reading Let’s Try This Again.

Yup That’s Me…

My older sister.  She was mom's right hand as I was growing up, once the folks separated / divorced. It was drilled into my head that I was supposed to do what my sister told me to do when mom wasn't around. I grew up saying yes to her regardless of what I may have … Continue reading Yup That’s Me…

Life and its Lemons

Taxes done - I owe $3,940 to the feds and $79 to the state.  Guess who has to put off her Day One of training, as well as several other activities and purchases she had planned for the spring? I'm freaking out at having to put off the training. I feel guilty for some reason; … Continue reading Life and its Lemons

And suddenly…

  I have too much to do.  The whole point of getting a "smart phone" was so that I would have a calendar and to-do list (with notification reminders) with me at all times stopping me from double booking myself or forgetting commitments altogether. So what happens? I get geeked up about a thing, put … Continue reading And suddenly…

Comfort Zone – the Continuing Exploration Beyond

First tentative steps beyond the borders of my Comfort Zone: DIY Program & Creator's Guild launch. - the program was by no means ready but I "launched" it anyway. Long live my Bass-Ackwards approach to life and living, especially when it comes to business. Just have to be sure to temper it with some good sense … Continue reading Comfort Zone – the Continuing Exploration Beyond

Just kidding. It's been a slow and steady decline as far as the weight … Continue reading I Think My Tape Measure is Broken
