Good News!

Wednesday, March 04, 2009      1 comments

My sister finally had her MRI on Saturday and got her results yesterday and she didn't have a stroke and doesn't have MS or a brain tumour! We still don't know what's wrong but it's nice to get the scary things out of the way. Now, they think ... Read more

My sister

Worried and stressed!

Monday, January 26, 2009      3 comments

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

Home from Cuba...

Sunday, January 04, 2009      1 comments

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

Exercise, Exercise, Exercise....

Monday, December 22, 2008      0 comments

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

Sunday, December 14, 2008      2 comments

I fell on the sidewalk during one of my walks this week and yes, it hurt but the worst part about falling (IMHO) is trying to get back up again since I can't use my knees because of the RA. But, I fell by a van and I used the tire on the van to... Read more

Massage & Reward Update

Thursday, December 04, 2008      2 comments

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...

Saturday, November 08, 2008      2 comments

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
