Day by Day
Every day is a new one, and every day is a struggle unto itself. I pray every night for the strength to make the right decisions the next day, and sometimes I do and sometimes I don't
This morning I was good again, despite the heat or mayb... Read more
Monday of a very hot-to-be week
This heat wave is supposed to go on for most of the week, cooling down to--wait, did I say cooling? I guess when it goes from 100's to high 80's that is cooling....
So far today I am quite comfortable. The temp is always a good 10 degrees... Read more
And the heat goes on
Longer than it was originally supposed to--I have heard that this coming week is going to be close to double digits as well.
My son's house guest is gone, and I have to admit that makes me a little more comfortable, even though he was absol... Read more
End of the week
A very hot week--with more promised for the weekend and next week. Whew.
Because of the heat primarily, this has also been a fairly non-productive week. I did a few things here and there, got a little exercise in, but when it is this hot,... Read more
Last night was a very special outing--my son and his friend invited me to join them for dinner, at a new, "hot" place in Los Angeles called Red O by Rick Bayliss. He is a celebrity chef who is an expert on Mexican cuisine. The food was really ... Read more
I am waiting for my car to be repaired. All day yesterday and probably most of today.
I have spent so much time in my life waiting, you would think that I would be great at it. I do it, but I still have that antsy feeling and instead of g... Read more
Not a good day. Started off with a dead battery in my car. Since it had to go to the garage anyway, I am finally getting the brakes taken care of. I haven't heard from them yet, and I have a feeling that it is going to be there overnight, so ... Read more
I managed to avoid the last piece of cake--permanently. The boys were surprised that I didn't eat it, and they finally finished it off! Whew! At least that is no longer there to tempt me.

They got me
I had lunch with a friend yesterday and fully expected to be challenged food-wise. It is hard to get our schedules to mesh so we don't see each other often, and we had planned on going to a particular place for months.
I thought I was doin... Read more
Guilty Pleasure Avoided!
Much to my surprise, this morning, I did not pick up that bag of Fritos. I think I have made myself sick on them enough times to be able to remember that unpleasant feeling.....what a comment!
Last night my son and his guest picked up a Tr... Read more
Not much to offer
I don't have anything interesting to offer today! This has been a busy week, with some extremely bad news, some enjoyable times, and some difficult tasks that needed doing.
I have been trying to stay on the low side of my calorie range t... Read more
Yesterday was a very, very bad day. I got some horrendous news that will devastate me for the rest of my life.
My son came home with two bags from In 'N Out (the best burgers in the world, available only in California and Arizona, I think)... Read more
I spent some time last night with some people who just KNOW.......everything is delivered in the "this is fact" intonation and structure. "This is bad for everyone" and "I do this because it is the only right way" and so forth. I have always b... Read more
I was proud of myself yesterday and today I have my tail between my legs!
I made my plan for eating for the day as I always do and then proceeded to completely eat completely different food! It was almost comical. And last night I got the... Read more
I have been having a problem with snacky cravings in the evening lately. I don't have snacky food in the house and I generally am fine after dinner. I think part of it is that I am adjusting to being alone a lot more especially in the evenings... Read more
