Friday, January 20, 2012      8 comments

Urgh - I called off work again last night. Had walked the dogs a very slow 2.5 miles (usually takes 1 hour, took 75 minutes). Got nauseated at the end, then the belly cramps again. I have no stamina, either. Being sick bites (I'd use another wor... Read more

I think I'm about over the crud - at least, I hope so! I've been thinking about pudding - craving it. Gotta pick up some sugar free mix. Also, with the crud, I've been hungry, but getting belly cramps when I eat. Reminded me of the Pelican poem.... Read more

Sigh ... a New Year ... I managed to exercise pretty well last year, although I stopped going to the gym after being sick so much in January and February. Every time I thought about the gym, I just took the pups on an hour or more walk, threw in... Read more

I'm not planning to go out for a New Year's celebration. Usually, I'm working NYE, and bring in fizzy juices (apple &/or grape). Guess I might raise a glass for everyone while I'm at at home with the critters. To all my friends! Pink, 2010 ... Read more
