where does the time go?

Friday, November 30th 2007

i only have time for a quick shout out to everyone. we are down in calabash, nc and i have limited access to the internet. they have a wireless connection down at the amenity center but i hate going there for too long. it's very quiet around here in the winter. i am using netzero right now, but i only pay for 10 hours a month. we aren't down here long enough to pay for anything more. still, 10 hours gets used up awfully quickly.

i have managed to stay focused on my diet about 50% of t...

Alive and Kickin'

Monday, November 19th 2007

I am just checking in to say hello. I posted a version of this in the Century Club as well. I thought I should stop by and explain why I have been MIA for a few weeks. It's just really stuff, a case of the blahs, making a decision about my new career (yes, I am doing it), preparing for the holiday, packing for our trip to North Carolina and well like all of you, just plain busy. Of course, my weight loss plan has gone awry and like Melinda I have lost my mojo. I am hoping to get it back tomorro...

there is a haze

and i can't see

this and that

the holiday season

Monday, November 5th 2007

my house
is a mess
filled with boxes
of clothes
in all different sizes
some to wear
some to give away
too big
too small
too many
i just have
to let go
today i start

i don't know why
i hold on to
so many clothes
every closet
the attic
boxes
upon boxes
filled with surprises
i bought that?
when?
i don't even remember
it went right into a bin
from the moment
i brought it home
bought on impulse
without trying it on
knowing it wouldn't fit
