Tomorrow I’m booked in (again) to give plasma at the mobile Red Cross van. The last time I went to donate, my veins decided to play hide and seek, probably because I hadn’t drunk enough water.

Unfortunately I had super busy week and often, in addition to sleep, the first thing ‘to go’ is my water consumption. I’m so bad at drinking water sometimes particularly when it’s a bit cooler.
I’m not completely convinced that my weekend water binge will be sufficient to make up for a shocking week, but I’ll keep you posted.

But then once I got back to work, I was STILL logging in. I could feel myself getting out of control. Continue reading “Logging off … an update”
So I’ve logged off Facebook. I know it must seem like “yeah and …. ?!” to a lot of people, but to me, it’s not so straightforward.
Why? Continue reading “Logging off … not really … but more than usual.”
First swim of the year down at Cudgeon Creek this afternoon. And despite a little sunburn (what was I thinking not putting on sunscreen!?!?!?), I continue to be amazed at just how I’ve learned to give-n0-fcks about going into the water. Continue reading “Fat Girl Swimming …”
