That Pound

You know I hate that pound. It never matters if is gained or lost...but it controls me. I hate it. If I get on the scale and it is! What a day. But if it is there...or gained....well, that sets the mood for my day, too. That stinking pound.

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... that her childhood may not have been perfect...but its over...EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... what she would and wouldn't do for love or more... EVERY WOMAN SHOULD to live alone... even if she doesn't like it...

P.S. I am changing!

I feel driven today. I feel motivated and I am moving forward. I want to step away from the people in my life that hold me back. I don't want the negative force of those that lack motivation. Maybe this is my goodbye note to them. I need to break free of the boundaries in my own mind, but first I have to let the literal boundaries go. Negative, negative, negative....

Therapy is great. I love it. I wonder why going to therapy is often met by resistance? So many folks seem to think something must be wrong with a person if they go to therapy. My secret? I think something is wrong with the ones who don't go! :)_

I know a wonderful therapist....he has a great website. Look at it at

Great week.

Ready For The Week.

What a busy past seven days. I went and came back from DC. I went and came back from visiting my sisters. I also took my son to stay with his grandmother for a few days. Tomorrow will be a busy Monday at work.

My son got his first couple of NBA player signatures. I think he is hooked. He enjoyed every minute of it.

During some of my travel time I read the book, Running With Scissors. It caused me to be amazed that any of us ever recover. And the fact that those of us who make the needed changes are actually leaps and bounds ahead of "normal" society...well, it is truly amazing. We are so lucky. I am so lucky.

Happy Sunday.

My Week in DC

I am in Washington, DC this week with NAADAC.
I have heard that some people are natural advocates and some are not. I now disagree. I believe an advocate was inside of me all along but it caught fire while at this conference. I knew I was in this field to help those suffering from the disease of addiction, but learning what I can do for us to continue to provide those services has been eye opening.
When I used to look at small budgets, mini salaries and insurance red tape I used to think it was just going to be that way and I would just have to get used to it. NO MORE. I have a voice. WE HAVE A VOICE. It is time to speak!
I am on my way to the hill today to share my thoughts with those who represent us in Texas. What are you going to do today to ensure we are able to continue to provide services? Not everyone can come to DC. But, I challenge you to begin brain storming what you can do. If you have a passion for our profession.....get involved just a little more than you are today. If you don't attend TAAP meetings-Start. If you aren't a member-Become one. If you haven't been to Austin for legislative advocacy-Make plans today to go next year. If you want to stand beside me on the hill next year......let's talk!

It's the weekend!

Saturday night already. Tomorrow I leave for DC. Hope I get to see a friend of mine I haven't seen since moving back from Germany. But, the trip is mostly business so I am not sure.

Made it to two NBA games this week. Looking forward to the out of town game next weekend and doing some fun (not business) stuff for a few days.
