Miracles around the interwebs

I finally made it back to work today!  Thankfully I had a lot to do, so the day flew by.  I’m somewhat amazed that I managed to sit up for eight hours straight after spending 90% of my time lying down for 10 days.  I’m so grateful to have had the ability to take that …

Sickbed humor

For anyone keeping score, today was my EIGHTH day in bed with what I have now learned is the “norovirus.”  Although I’m feeling much more human today, I’m still coughing a lot and feeling exhausted, so I’m going to spend one more day working from home.  Then the weekend to rest and hopefully I’ll be …

Releasing and letting go

I’ve been having a profound experience of releasing expectations for the past week.

On Jan. 1, I began participating in a weight release group.  Prior to the new year, we had made our plans about how we would begin adjusting our eating and exercise habits in order to honor ourselves and our bodies.  Mine had …

When being sick is a good thing

While I was in New York last week, I wasn’t too careful about the food I was eating.  I tried for the first day or so, but by the time Monday rolled around and I had a six-hour car trip home, I was digging into the potato chips and sugary snacks.

Let me back up …

Walking down the aisle

This weekend my predecessor at the newspaper came back to the area for a wedding.  Today she sent a really touching story about loyalty, commitment and focus.  She suggested that it might be good for The Journal.

I look up to Gail and respect her so much; I’m really honored to highlight her story and …

Are you calling me a dizzy brunette?

This week I’m having an opportunity to listen to my body and and to stop worrying about what other people think.

For the last two days, around noon time I’ve started feeling extremely dizzy.  As in “I think I might fall off my chair” dizzy.  I’m able to walk around and drive, but I’m much …

Tuning out, sleeping in

I have a lot to say and very little energy to say it with.  For the past few weeks, I’ve felt myself sinking into deeper and deeper exhaustion.  I think it started back with the Melissa Jenkins murder, and then the other five murders in quick succession.  It was mentally and emotionally exhausting.  I’ve been …
