    I hear you Tomi, its the lack of movement on the scale that's motivating me to stop drinking. I've been doing a lot of reading and thinking about it. I'm shooting for the new year.....

    Can't sleep. I've tried lavender, reading, deep breathing, and meditation - no help. I'm now up (dogs are thrilled) drinking a cup of Tazo Calm tea. I don't think I'm worrying about anything - got my grade in the other class and made an A, but am still waiting on the grade on the last paper for the class I took an I in over the summer. I just need a 13/30 to pass the course, so don't think I'm dwelling on that. No idea what the issue is. Thankfully, I don't have to work tomorrow. I could work on my office and might do so if the tea doesn't work. It could be the clutter in my life, or the deep thinking (life goals and changes) I've been doing. I'm not even sleepy.

    Up after about 4 hours of sleep. Not really tired, but I'm sure it will hit me later today. I'm going to try and get my closet cleaned up. I'm not going thru clothes today - I don't feel up to it. I need to get stuff off the floor and the shelves dejunked. Baby steps will get it done. Leftovers today. Tomorrow beef shanks - the dogs are loving all the beef bones. I've got a cauliflower I will roast and then make into mocktatoes. Lots of lettuce to use up - too bad I don't really feel like salad.

    Cold front came in over night - try not to snort your coffee laughing, but our low was 32 and we are only getting to 52 today. Heater kicked on for the first time since winter before last
    Um, yeah, lots of snorting here. I don't expect to see 52F until at at the very earliest late March, more likely April. But then again, it's all what you get used to. At the end of my 7 months in Afghanistan, when in Sept the temps got down to the low 70s in the evenings, I thought it was really chilly and needed a sweater. The last week here has been highs around -10F, but is much milder the past 2 days, with a whopping 10F. Decent for using the BBQ tonight.

    I'd gladly trade my winter for yours .

    No thanks, spent 4 years in Massachusetts growing up and got enough winter and snow then!

    Slept better and actually feel less blah - maybe I was trying to come down with something and I needed the rest to kick it? Was feeling overwhelmed last night after organizing my assignments for this semester and thinking of what I still have to accomplish work wise, but I did not over indulge in wine. . It's going to be a rough semester, but chunk by chunk, I will survive and get stuff done. More leftovers today, a sweet potato, Brussels sprouts. Use up a potato for DS. More organization chores today. I don't think I will leave the house. I try and lump all errands together. Still working on my goals for next year. I want them to be meaningful, manageable, and accomplishable. They are not resolutions, but rather personal goals that I can evaluate throughout the year and check off as met this time next year. Okay, enough rambling, time to get moving.

    I have no doubt that whatever you set your mind to, you will do. FWIW, I've decided to give up alcohol for awhile. I feel like it has become a crutch for me and I drank too much over the holidays. I looked at the returnable container full of wine bottles and got sober pretty quickly! I'm going to stay alcohol-free through January and then will assess how I feel.

    Thanks Siobhan. The goal I'm thinking about the hardest is the wine. I know I can abstain - went a year once without any alcohol, but think I want to go with a definition of moderation and clear guidelines. I've got a bit more reading to do before it crystallizes in my head. I am going to start a paper journal - there are just some things you don't want or need floating around in cyberspace!

    So true. I keep trying to keep a paper journal, but I like the electronic one too much. The occasional feedback keeps me motivated. I suppose the best solution is a combination of both. There is a lot of stuff that is best kept off the internet!
