It has been pretty cool here in Pittsburgh these past few weeks with the filming of the latest movie in the Dark Knight series. I know some people have been complaining about the traffic tie-ups, but this is great publicity for our city as well... Read more

I attended my first eMeeting yesterday and I really enjoyed it! I was at work so I could not use a webcam but I got some headphones at lunchtime so I could do this. It was great to see/hear SparkFriends - there were several people I alread... Read more

My friend, Di, pointed out that I haven't been blogging much lately. I have had so much going on for the last few weeks... I only had access to a laptop this weekend - wrote my whole Batman blog and then lost it just as I was posting. I w... Read more

Angela and I spent the entire day at Heinz Field on the Batman movie set. We both got sunburned and extremely overheated - it was over 80 degrees and extremely humid and we had to keep putting on coats for the scenes - but we both agreed it was... Read more

I went to the U-2 concert last night with my DD, DS and DIL. Pittsburgh was the second-to-last stop on their tour and the last stop in the US. This is a picture of th... Read more

Yesterday was a very long day. We arrived at the hospital at 7 AM and did not get home until after 8 PM due to several delays in the afternoon OR schedule. I was there alone all day and my cell died before noon but I could check in here every ... Read more

I had a nice visit with my kids. We had brunch at our house and just sat around talking for a few hours until Vinnie & Deanna had to leave for the airport. Then my DD and I had some time alone together while DH took care of the transport. ... Read more
Quiet Day

I did a whole lot of nothing today. I was up late after DS and DIL arrived and slept until 6 AM (late for me). Got up but was nodding off at my computer so I grabbed a blanket, got into my recliner and put on the TV. After a while I fell back... Read more

Water Heater

Remember about 10 days ago when DH was working on the hot water heater all day? Well, he never actually figured out what was wrong with it. The hot water (only) had a bit of a rusty tint to it. I tell him we probably need to replace it before... Read more

Why can't I stand up for myself and just do what I want? I am mad at the world but mostly mad at myself. Why don't I care as much about my own feelings and desires as I do about everyone else's? ... Read more

Just in case you were wondering - my test went fine. Don't have to do it again for 7 years. I do have a bit of diverticulosis, but a high fiber diet should make sure it doesn't cause any problems. My SILs just left - DH went to bed ove... Read more
Survived the Weekend
Sunday, June 26, 2011      12 comments

Got through the weekend without too much trouble. I was able to stick to the low residue diet but I sure do miss my fruits and vegetables. I did go over about 100 calories and tons of sodium yesterday due to unforeseen circumstances. Firs... Read more
