I am 35 today. I'm trying to figure out what that means to me. At one point it produced a lot of anxiety - original questions like, "What is the point of it all?" Today I am focused on where I want my career to be.

I'm focused on that because of yet another unpleasant interaction with my coworker from hell. Even though I was able to (mainlyh) frame the situation mentally as "This is HER issue, Lynn, not yours" I am left with a horrible taste in my mouth and true sense t...

I appreciate the feedback you gave me on my last entry. I have thought long and hard about it and have not arrived at any conclusions other than I feel like this is becoming an obsession, which isn't what I'm aiming for. On the other hand, I'm not at all ready to concede the fight.

Will's first school picture!!

Exquisite eyeliner dream last night. No eyeliner involved, though. This time it was a futuristic urban setting, with white marbled landscaping rocks everywhere. Random fires popped up out of the rocks. I was carrying my clothes instead of carrying a suitcase of clothes, which meant I kept dropping the clothes, and picking them up. This, apparently, was very exciting. Prior to that, there were huge, cylindrical (hi, Jay!) towers with elevators inside that requir...

I'm going to take 10 minutes to do a quick update - I keep waiting until I have a chunk of time, and its just not happening this (or last, or next) week.

Week whatever (6?) on Callie's Challenge was okay in that I maintained. Normally that would be a big bummer for me, but since I traveled 3 days for work I knew that I'd be retaining some water, and my hands definitely felt puffy. So, hopefully, there was even a little hidden loss in there, but I obviously can't count it. Eating went very w...
