I lost an old friend today – or rather a young friend. Eric, would have been 40 on October 30th. He was found in his apartment this morning. I don’t have a clue what happened, but I am even sadder to make a guess. Eric was very overweight. He probably needed to lose 150 pounds. He was always a big person, but recently I could see through his Facebook photos, he had gotten even heavier. He was troubled by knee issues, but that is the only health-related thing he ever mentioned.

move the mountain

Saturday, September 25th 2010

move the mountain
the obstacles
that have always
stood in the way
of my progress
my ability
to be healthy
to want to be healthy
to stay the course
often dragged
down and deep
like the albatross,
mine was sometimes
life itself
and the unbearable
moments that took
my will away
sapped my strength
to be the best
I could be
for me
and only me

move the mountain
with the anger
and remorse
for words unspoken
and those words
shouted in haste

One Big Stink!

Friday, September 24th 2010

On Weds, I went food shopping. By the time I got home it was almost 6:30 PM, I was getting hungry and dinner wasn't even started.

Blogging My Heart Out

Thursday, September 23rd 2010

I wrote this long, wonderful blog the other day and then it just vanished. It’s happened before and I know better. Having been burned before, I usually write my blog in a word document and then cut and paste to CK, but because I was in a hurry (proof that haste really does make waste) I just wrote it on CK and then the magician like powers of CK just made it disappear before I could save it! I am sure it is with the thousands of socks I have lost through the years. Of course then there was...

Observations from the Locker Room

Monday, September 20th 2010

I haven’t had a chance to blog in several days. I miss it and feel I am doing myself a disservice when I don’t take a few minutes to share.

I started my swimming lessons and swimming in general last week and love it. I only went twice, but I definitely got my feet wet –literally…lol as it turns out, I am the only one who signed up for the women’s swimming class so basically I am getting private lessons. The instructor was very nice and said I wasn’t as bad as I thought. Some of th...
