March 2022: monthly goal setting

It’s nearing the end of the day for March 1st as I write this, so you will read this tomorrow morning. But that’s okay. One day won’t hurt. A new month, means a new set of goals – and for this month, I’m going to make some changes. Good Reads Challenge In December, I decided…

The year is coming to a fast end

It’s a little after noon as I sit down with my first cup of coffee and contemplate what to do for my day. The sky is cloudy and there is a slight wind. It’s supposed to snow again later today, so I need to get outside and finish hanging my Christmas lights. I wasn’t planning…

I’ve got a case of the midweek blues

Just a short daily diary post today. I’m tired and my shoulder is still dislocated. I’m not sure if it’s actually popped out of joint fully, but it’s hanging limp and hurts a lot. I think it probably just shifted out of place slightly. It takes a few days for it to pop back into…

Living Well – Skin care for winter’s itch

Yes, you’re reading this right. It’s before 8 am and I’m up with my first cup of coffee for the day. Mostly because I’ve been up all night again. But I made the mistake of having a nap last night. Sometime during the night, I looked down at my feet and marveled at how dirty…

Daily Tracker – Monday Mood

It’s Monday night as I type this out but most of you will read it tomorrow morning. I’m trying to get back into scheduling posts but am having difficulties this week. I’ve lost count of how many hours I’ve slept. I’m using the blog to help track the symptoms and other things I experience while…

Tuesday morning thoughts – I might be a vampire

Well the good news is I’m all caught up on sleep for now. The bad news is – I’m wide awake at 1:30 am eating chicken tender and fries from the deli. Man, these are more delicious than anything I’ve ever ordered from restaurants. And for half the cost too. I tried making it healthy…

Self-care – practicing what I preach

Today’s been a lousy day to quote my mother as she used to say. I slept the entire day. I’ve had a migraine pretty much non stop since early December. The insomnia has been bad and I guess I needed to sleep to catch up. I had several articles saved in draft for the week…

Selfcare isn’t selfish (updated)

It’s Monday morning again and I’m just getting my day started. It’s almost noon – a busy time for WordPress readers, so I thought I would take a few minutes and jot down some thoughts that are in my busy and noisy head today. I’m struggling a lot with this lockdown. And considering I just…

Monday Mood – change is the one constant thing in life

It’s Monday again but the sun is shining and most of the snow has melted. I’m finally sitting down with my first cup of coffee for the day. It’s instant coffee. I am actually drinking instant coffee and like it. It’s a delicious cappuccino mix. It’s more calories than regular coffee but it’s a delicious…

Social media detoxing – all you need is love

Tonight while binge watching season two of Sex and the City, I hopped onto Facebook to see what was happening. Someone from my old office made the announcement that she was leaving the site to focus on her family. And while the thought of not seeing her adorable baby photos, I have to admit –…
