Back from vacation
This is where I was for the last week. Nice "cottage", eh? It was great. There were 10 people there (me, my dad, two of my sisters and their husbands and kids). But, the cottage was so big, we all had plenty of privacy and quiet if we wanted... Read more
This Damp is Making Me Ache or
Rain, Rain, Go Away....
We've had 10 inches of rain since May of this year, which is 7½ inches more than we had last year and I want it to stop. Not only does the damp make me achy but I look forward to the summer for the sunshine. I miss... Read more
Ode to My Wonderful Husband
We went to Port Stanley this week (about 1 and a half hours away from our house) and I have a bad habit of always forgetting something wherever I go. And, this time, I forgot my heating pad at the hotel we stayed at so my wonderful husband volu... Read more

Apparently, it's not RA
So, I went to see my doctor today and he's decided it's not RA that's giving me the pain in my scapula and rib cage. He thinks I've either strained a muscle or cracked a rib. He sent me for x-rays so we'll see (I guess). He's determined this ... Read more
Oh, the guilt....
I've been off work since Friday because of a flare. I started the drive to work Monday morning and again this morning because I know I need to get back there but the longer I'm awake, the more pain that I feel. It's so hard to know when it's t... Read more
I love GREEN TEA!
It's been awhile since I've posted. Re blog title, I've been drinking a lot of green tea because I heard it was anti-inflammatory and I truly believe it is. I've been having a flare in my rib cage and shoulder blades since May 30th and on the ... Read more
Finally some nice weather...
We finally had a nice day today - mostly sunny and around 68. I weeded and mulched my gardens finally and then I went and bought $275 worth of plants. Yikes! I'm planning on planting them tomorrow.

I Need Help
Today was my weigh-in day and I gained 1.9 pounds, which makes me heavier today than I was at the beginning of April.
I haven't exercised since Saturday because of sore knees but I've been eating okay (or so I think) so I'm not really sure ... Read more
In the past few weeks, I've regained old friends who I thought I had lost forever. One was a Spark Friend, who dropped out of sight last December because of computer problems and one is a work friend who was dealing with some personal issues an... Read more
Water is Good
I've just returned from a 3-day conference where I didn't drink nearly enough water. I had a headache from about 4 p.m. yesterday until about 4 p.m. today. Since about 2 p.m. today, I've drank two cups of water and 4 cups of green tea and lo ... Read more

24 Years Ago on the 24th of March
I got married. And, oh my, I'm a different person now than I was then and I'm so glad.
That day, I was a nervous wreck. My parents even let me smoke in the house because I was so nervous.
I got married in my parents' livingroom with ... Read more
