    2022-03-23 One Blog Post to Rule Them All…

    Spoiler alert: This will be my last post for the foreseeable future. And it is a long one.   A lot has happened in my life these past 5 years and much of it has been captured in the virtual pages of this space. I created this blog in 2017 when I was literally on the […]

    2022-02-12 SMA Road Trip Day 6: All Roads Lead Home

    Our last night on the road was spent at a Holiday Inn Express and it was definitely not the consistent experience I’ve come to expect from the HIE. Still, we just needed a place to sleep and gear up for the last, and longest, day on the road. No places to stop, no booked tickets […]

    2022-02-04 Checking In and Checking Out… ✅

    We’re one month into 2022 and it’s a good day to check in on those goals and resolutions. 10 items on my list and 10 things to report on… Read a book a month. Unless you count the winter issue of Rattle, this was a total fail. ❌. I think my problem is not having […]

    2022-01-17 Much Ado About a Monday Status Update… ✅✅❌

    We’re now over half way through the month of January so it’s about time I check myself before I wreck myself.  In other words.. how am I doing on the New Years resolution front?  To be fair I think I only officially declared my set of goals a little over a week ago so anything […]

    2021-12-22 It’s a Numbers Nerding Kind of Day

    Yesterday I let myself become immersed in a total left-brain organizational task. It was very satisfying. I did some folder/file shuffling and a little accounting with a focus on the poems I’ve published to date.  I’m in a numbers kind of mood. I guess that’s what I do when I fail to write. I’ve been […]

    2021-07-18 Sunday Staycation Status 🏖🚴🏻‍♀️🍹☀️❤️🍱🍝🌮

    Sunday Staycation Status, AKA Staycation Days one through six, is that one post that wraps six days “off” the normal routine enjoying many activities one’s home city has to offer. It’s true what people say about a person not actually taking advantage of the things the city they live in had to offer. It’s been […]

    2021-03-21 Questions of Life and Death

    I guess it’s been a few days. I guess that’s what happens when life gets busy. I feel like I complain a lot about not ever having enough time but then something happens and I have even less time. I guess that’s the nature of life. Experiences that are constantly teaching you that you don’t […]

    2021-03-07 Checking It and (Mostly) Not Wrecking It ❤️💤☯️ ✔️✔️✔️

    It’s Sunday again and I’m up early and checking my stats. I changed things up for the month of March so this is my first week evaluating new measures.  For exercise I’m still keeping tabs on my step count but also trying to improve my heart function by making sure I get some good cardio […]

    2021-02-28 Looking Back to Improve the Future… 🗓 ✅🚫⏰

    It’s the last day of the month and the last day of the week AND the last day of my little experiment to untether myself from my phone. You know what that means? It’s time for the ultimate Sunday status.  First off.. I’ve already been analyzing “stats” for about 50 minutes of today’s walk so […]

    2021-02-21 Sunday Status Funny Money 🐹

    It’s Sunday and I’m checking my stats. How did I do meeting my goals?  For sleep I achieved my goal 6 of 7 nights.  Healthy eating.. 4 of 7.  Mood.. 4 of 7. Meditation.. 2 of 7.  Exercise.. 6 of 7.  Most of this looks good but feels a bit like funny money. Like you […]
