Worried and stressed!
My sister, who is 2 years younger than me, had a mini-stroke on Saturday and I'm worried about her and feeling quite stressed. I always think of her as the healthy one because she isn't overweight (like me), she exercises every day, she eats pr... Read more
R.I.P. - Cairo
My sister's dog died last night. Although, I'm allergic to dogs, I loved Cairo. Cairo was a good dog and she had had him longer than she's been married. He was 14 years ... Read more
Home from Cuba...
I have returned from Cuba, which was very, very wonderful. Great weather (sunny every day and high 20s (Celsius - in the low 80s Fahrenheit). The hotel was very nice. Good service, good food, nice people. There were two pools and that was al... Read more
I'm off to CUBA for a week - WooHoo!

Have a good week, everyone!... Read more
Exercise, Exercise, Exercise....
That's the key to losing weight. At least for me, it is. I had one Christmas Lunch, one Christmas Party and one Christmas dinner in the past 5 days and yet I managed to lose half a pound and I'm sure it's because of exercise! ... Read more
Update on my Life

Massage & Reward Update
I had my massage on Monday night and it was both soothing and painful. I didn't really warm to the masseuse. She was okay but not someone I felt comfortable with. And, I kind of hated her place of business. It was very loud and busy - not at... Read more

Agony last night but maybe light in the tunnel soon
I only slept for about 3 hours last night because my rib cage was so inflamed! But, I had to go to work. I was off sick last week for 2 days and the week before for 1 day so I didn't want to book off again and besides that I'm running a meetin... Read more

A couple of questions for my American friends...
Of course, you don't have to answer but I am curious.
You just elected your first African-American President and I, for one, think it's about time!
Who did YOU vote for and why?
I was just wondering if anyone voted for Obama partl... Read more

ARRRGGGGHHHH!!! 1 Frigging Pound!
Well, at least I didn't go up but 1 frigging pound lost for a whole month of exercise every day except one and staying in my calorie range most days is very, very frustrating! I mean, what's the frigging point of being good if it takes one mont... Read more
I'm going to slit my throat if....
