I am here,

I have way too much to do as usual (are you sick of hearing about that yet?).  I must be just approaching the point where I stop writing in my journal .  I have always ended up with a string of Dear Diary-nothing much happened today or Dear diary-What the hell am I doing spending time thinking up what to write when I should be getting x,y,z and all the rest of those things done.  Eventually I always quit writing all together.  This blog..for some reason has outlived every single attempt I have ever made to chronicle anything in writing.  This blog has in words chronicled the single only time I have ever succeeded at losing weight.  and this blog has been a very positive thing.

so...of course I need to keep on doing it.  The problem is I cannot always think of anything new to say. Sure I can write down what I eat, fail to eat, or fail at eating.  I can write down lists of all of the crap I should get done or did get done.  I can write down what we do and where we go but...sometimes that seems sooooo boring.

Up to this point I have not worried about who follows me.  There are course many of you who I consider my peeps..my friends and greatest source of bandy support.  I am so grateful that I got to meet you in person and virtually and I would have it no other way.  On the other hand...do I really need this blog if I do not concern myself with who is reading it-hmmmm.

1.  My food has gone to hell in a hand basket.  I am back to my old litany whenever you cut something out all you want to do is eat it/have it..roll in it...swim in it.  Yeah well um I have done a bit of all of the above.  Screw the research.  I need to moderate and keep it slow and I will...I hope.

2.  I have decided I need a fill.  I tightened up this week--OMG  I have been looser than I think.  Why is it that I always seem to get myself in this place?

3.  Menopause--it is happening and FINALLY...the period stuff is on quick stop :) wahhhhhoooooooo.

4.  I have a crap-load of stuff to get done at the store...some of which is web-design stuff, stocking shelves, deciding what I need to make sure I have available for the Winter season, what kinds of kits to put together, making sure those kits are ready to go, get class samples ready, balance the books.

5.  I have stuff for my other tutoring/researchy jobs-reading two papers, writing up a course description i promised, reviewing an article for a journal.

6.  I have house-ee stuff-clean more than one floor of the house at a time, hang up pictures and get Grace's room in any kind of order (yes she is supposed to help but not very good at organizing herself). We want to have a party but every time I get one area picked up the filth busts out of a new one (you know like those closets that fall on your head every time someone opens the door).  My whole house is like one of those closets.

Holy crap--i just came in to check on this post and remembered I have another day off tomorrow :) yippeee..good food day..check.  no doctors appointment yet..but tomorrow perhaps.  Menopause..still a good check...work shmirk..tomorrow is my day off.  Ok..I will work on the tutoring researchy stuff...and maybe some of the cleaning. :)

nighty night.

Don't you DARE stop this blog!! Writing what you do every day is great - wish I had the gumption to have started a shop that became so successful... In winter when thoughts turn to warm clothes and in-house hobbies, I bet it will be heaving at the seams. So glad for you.
Sometimes reading about someone else's life is interesting purely because it's different to your own.

Lady, you're so busy I'm exhausted just reading about it! I'm with the other commenter (who I don't know, sadly). Don't you stop blogging! It's not boring to me, and we'd miss you!
