These are a bit late, but internet access was spotty for us. Tuesday we started out by seeing the Klondike Museum State Park. It is a wonderful place about the gold rush, and be sure to see the movie if you go. Next we walked around Pio... Read more

True to form, our vacation is off to an adventurous start. In Birmingham the airline couldn't find our reservation. When we got to our gate in Atlanta, the attendant said it was moved to another gate, when we got there, it was in another termi... Read more
Not back yet

After 5 days on my antibiotics for the diverticulitis, I'm still not quite back to normal yet. The low residue diet doesn't provide a lot of substance, but helps with the discomfort. I rode 14 miles this morning, and probably should not have. ... Read more

Yesterday started out just great. Went for a short (18 miles) ride on my new bike, had a great lunch, took the grands to get back to school shoes. But as the day progressed, I just didn't feel well, and by 10 was cramping, had a fever and felt... Read more

What is life but one big adventure. You wake up in the morning and anything can happen. We started slowly redecorating the house, made it through the bathrooms with out a divorce. That is good. Started on the Grandboys' playroom, got t... Read more

I think I am finally getting used to the braces. I have settled into a new routine of eating-cleaning and things are getting better. I still have difficulty with crunchy things and won't be able to bite into a fruit till they come off, but I c... Read more
Living with braces.
Wednesday, February 18, 2009      3 comments

I finally took the plunge and got braces again. Perhaps now I will quit cracking fillings and teeth. It has certainly been a long time (don't ask) since I have had braces and I had forgotten how uncomfortable they really are. Last time I had ... Read more

Today was a really great day. We got a 10 mile mountain bike ride in, light lunch, and some hammock time. It was 68 degrees at 11 this morning, how nice that felt. I am so looking forward to the warmer days of spring. We had company t... Read more

It seems to be getting easier to get my exercise in. DH goes to the gym with me and it really makes a difference. With the weather improving we have even gotten a few bike rides in. So far this month we have 12 miles mountain bike and 13 mi... Read more

After being up most of the night with MIL in the ER, today is tough. It is still raining (we will mold soon) with flooding over most of the north part of the state. Can't seem to be able to get more than about 10 minutes of exercise at a time,... Read more

I have started the New Year off right. Ate good foods, no junk, ate homemade applesauce for my sweets, lots of vegetables cooked with fat free broth and little salt. Even got some sewing done, Christmas decorations all packed away, laundry goi... Read more
Looking forward

The end of the year brings time for reflection and looking forward. I know I could have exercised much more and eaten much less in the past year, but over all it was a success. Weight is down, strength is up, tonsils are out, and every other b... Read more
