  1. Rough coup,e of days.  I need to focus on my goals and realize nothing happens overnight.  Posting here helps.  I feel like I am eating better and less which is good.  Exercise is far and few between.  Really need to get out and join a gym.  I don’t love going but I have so much trouble doing anything from home.  

    tomorrow is another day....

    .  A small part of me is the 'healer' and wants to 'fix' people by nature (therapist and all) but I'm more jaded than attracted to those kinds of women these days. 

    I am glad she is a step above the ex that I hated with a passion.  I know that here we here the worst and best of people and it is hard to see the big picture.  Wouldn’t it be nice if you could have someone nurture you for a change?  You deserve that.  At least someone who is motivates you as much as you do her.  I don’t know the current gf, and I am not saying anything bad against her but you know my story.  I waited ( kissed a lot of frogs along the way) to find someone who is my equal intellectually and mentally lifts me up as I do him.  I didn’t find him till I was a spinster of 37.  Sometimes it is easier to be smarter and fix others.  I always liked feeling that even if I was screwed up I was still better than the boyfriend de jour.  I only was able to challenge myself and see how to work on my weaknesses when I was faced with someone who could objectively point them out and help me, not out of spite or being better than me but because I helped him do the same thing.  Lift yourself because you want to be a better person with them and because they are trying too.  Enough said....

    How you been?

    Pretty good! Took a job I love but spend too much time on it.  My step son is a senior in high school this year so lots of things to do even with Corona around.  Hubby and I both have jobs that had us working normally ( and sometimes even more) with all this crap going around.  Just sucks because you also can’t just get away and go have some fun.  Lots of jig saw puzzles have been put together, lots of cooking comfort food ( why I am back here trying to reel it in) and even an axe throwing outing.  

    i am glad to be back.  I have really missed you guys!

  4. A few days off but not gone yet.  Set up my shiny new iPad I got for Christmas.    You know how technically savvy I am so it took me a minute to set everything up.  Long days at wor, but still hit most of my goals with the exception of getting on line.  

    some food pics for you  chicken Alfredo minus the noodle but with shredded zucchini and a taco salad.CF52CBF7-6691-4990-BC6F-FD9EC94AAC30.thumb.jpeg.b502cfc53fc578c5a5ece2d2a3925785.jpegEA14397E-21F3-4F8B-81B2-5DFEC7410938.thumb.jpeg.7e03c346486a4f37aedc6e51376fe28b.jpeg

  5. Lots of snow here yesterday into today.  I think the final total was 11 inches.  Exercise was shoveling.  Dinner hot wings and a salad.  I was starved and didn’t take a picture.  Good day but I am exhausted and headed to bed.  I will catch up on here after work tomorrow

    considering how we watched the entire season of Street Food: Latin America on Netflix (by the same people who made Chef's Table) afterwards, it's amazing how I didn't even have a snack before heading to bed.

    I would have had a hard time with that.  Great job!  Will have to watch that series right after I eat so I am full.

  7. Day 3 so far so good.  Marathon day at work. 12.5 hours.  Now home to cook dinner.  Steak and chicken fajitas with no tortillas of course.  Will try to snap a pic and post.  Still want to get some stretching in at least.  

    This is how I felt at work today but kept it together and didn’t kill anyone

  8. Proud of myself for being on day 2.  Posted on threads, ate good today.  For anyone who doesn’t know me I usually eat healthy, just too much.  I am also cutting out bread and trying to stick to under 100 g of carbs this week and then go into keto.  It works for me to drop some weight fast and to get motivated.  Didn’t look for a gym yet.  Did do some stretching after work before dinner.  Not a bad day.

    And thanks. You're making me blush, but thank you. I think that on a fundamental level everyone has good things and bad things in their life, and it's easy to focus on one or the other. I could paint a reasonable sob story of my upbringing for example, or I could talk about good things from my past. Both would be true, but I can choose which picture to paint and ultimately I think choosing to focus on the positive stuff makes me happier in the long run.

    Beautiful words that have never been so true.

    "a famously hard-charging voice in the field, whose return address was on one of the packages"


    The fact this person still has a job says a lot more about the whole cultural climate in the field, than the packages and their content does. And that is actually quite frightening is you stop to think about it.



    I'm not sure it's that simple. From what I can tell you could very easily have the spoons to be a philosopher, largely because philosophy seems to be  passion for you. What you are lacking spoons for, and understandably so, is dealing with the politics and petty personal-conflict bullshit that far too easily becomes prevalent in any field where the majority of players have based a lot of their sense of self on the notion that they are smarter than everyone around them. 


    So perhaps what you need is a way to be a philosopher that gives you control over how much you deal with other philosophers, so you can take a break from them when you start to run out of spoons?
