I am shocked and horrified by the devastating attack on the patrons at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. My heart goes out to those who were there in the middle of the terror, both those who made it out and those who did not. The families and loved ones of those victims have my … Continue reading Monday
I like to tell myself that the reason I'm not wearing my Fitbit and trying to up my level of physical activity is because of the way the bracelet looks. A bit like I've been let out of prison and this is the monitoring bracelet, right? So, I decided to invest in a more blingy … Continue reading Bling for Fitness and Fangirling
I've come to the conclusion that technology hates me. The first piece of evidence is what happened when I published my previous post, Waiting for Guylty Treasures: A Saga in Verse, Links, and Pictures. The evidence below is presented for your consideration: When I clicked "Publish" on my previous post, the post didn't show up in the … Continue reading Technology Hates Me
The arena cleared out gradually, leaving only the woman still waiting. As she watched the Zamboni go around the rink, she noticed that the driver (who wore a padded black leather jacket) sat tall in the seat, almost as if he were on a horse. The man turned his head to look over at her … Continue reading Rinkside Imagining
A few years ago, I wrote a piece for our Wellness Newsletter at work, which I wanted to share with you now. I was reminded of this earlier article after reading Heather Parish's latest blog post on "Stress and Fangirling" here. While my mini-vacation specifics have changed a bit since I wrote the article, my methods have … Continue reading Taking a mini-vacation… Stress relief without travel!
With so many people sharing pictures of women and men uniting in the spirit of the Women's March this weekend, I wanted to share what I saw when I went in to buy my groceries today. Pepsi, the NFL, and Safeway Canada (the latter now Canadian and independent of the U.S. company) are using a … Continue reading Updated: On the Weekend of the Women’s March
Today’s prompt really resonated with me. I have been working all week on deadlines – I should still be working now and will be again before the night is done. I had started the New Year with the idea that I would commit to myself, and that includes writing and blogging and spending time taking … Continue reading Overworked and Underblogged
Okay, I'll admit that I sometimes watch reality shows about family situations that are different from my own. I'm interested in what makes people tick, in how they are different from me, and in how we are the same. This last week, I was really impressed with the positive way that Mariah's coming out as … Continue reading Coming out on “Sister Wives”
Our tree comes down this weekend. We've always followed the tradition of leaving the tree up until January 6 (or the weekend after when the work week is done). I believe the idea is for the star at the top of the tree to light the way of the three wise men for the 12 … Continue reading And the Tree Comes Down
In my first post, I mentioned that on this blog I plan to share feelings and impressions about books, music, TV, movies, and sundry other subjects that take my fancy (or that don’t!). The name, “I’m Feeling This,” describes what I want to write about – feelings and thoughts about what’s made an impression on … Continue reading Why the Blog Name?
