Mondays are Good for Something

Monday, November 09, 2009      4 comments

There is one thing I like about Mondays. I do strength and stretching on Mon., Wed., and Fri. After two days off for the weekends, my body feels good stretching on Monday. I don't always like doing the exercises on Fri., but Mondays feel good... Read more

My DD and DGS and I went to look at treadmills today. We saw a lot of different kind and got some names so now we have to research them. I'm not sure my DH will spring for one. I've always had difficulty with them because if I'm at home, I ca... Read more

Why write a Blog?

Friday, November 06, 2009      3 comments

On the mornings I can't think of a Blog, I ask my grandson for ideas. We have a three mile trip to his bus stop and then sometimes a small wait. Today he asked me why I write a Blog. I told him it was sort of a diary where we can express our ... Read more

No Insurance

Thursday, November 05, 2009      3 comments

My grandson was listening to the radio while we waited for his bus. He said, "I know a way to save on car insurance! Forget Geico." I asked him how and he said to buy and ride a bike. Of course he was kidding, but isn't that the SP way of li... Read more

No, I don't mean drugs. Shame on you for thinking that! I walked on a treadmill for the first time and got in a 30 min. workout. I'm taking care of my DS's dogs while he's on vacation and I'm using his computer and his exercise equipment. He... Read more

I really thought having arthritis was to lead a life of pain. I know I was in pain for many many years. I have had knee replacement and while that does take the pain away, it still means sore and swollen knees at times. I was always told to e... Read more

Diamonds are a girl's BFF!

Monday, November 02, 2009      3 comments

Yes, diamonds are a girl's BFF. But a man's best friend is a dog. Go figure! I'd rather have oodles of diamonds than oodles of dogs. I think the reason men like dogs is that they obey and don't talk back. They also don't demand much--certai... Read more

Bike Jumping

Sunday, November 01, 2009      4 comments

I asked my grandson for a blog subject and he said, "Bike riding." Probably because he just spent two days riding BMX bikes with his dad and jumping dirt hills. Good exercise because he's pooped. Riding or playing with families is something t... Read more

Halloween Candy

Saturday, October 31, 2009      3 comments

I'm lucky I don't like chocolate. All I have to do is buy choc. candy to give away and I won't be tempted. When my childen were young, I offered them a penny a piece of candy. Two would take the deal and two wouldn't. When they got older, I... Read more

I'm having sort of a staycation--which is a vacation at home. My DDIL is off for two weeks so I won't have the grandbabies. They will be gone to Disneyland next week so I REALLY won't see them. It's going to be hard on me because they are a p... Read more

Feeling queasy

Thursday, October 29, 2009      3 comments

This is the second time this week my stomach has felt queasy. Everyone around me has had a gastro-intestinal something. I keep feeling it but it hasn't come up yet. I'm hoping not; I'm hoping my healthy eating, exercising, and sleep will keep... Read more

Fried Fair Food

Wednesday, October 28, 2009      1 comments

I just read an article about fair food. Evidently, Texas is the home or beginning of fried foods. They actually now have fried butter! How gross! Anyway, I have been able to resist the fair's fried foods: fried coke, fried smores, fried Ore... Read more

Giving, not receiving

Tuesday, October 27, 2009      5 comments

Giving IS a lot more fun than receiving. Our DIL just graduated from nursing school and is taking a two week break. She has been working as a nurse's assistant for 9 years. The past 2 1/2 years she has worked, gone to school, been a wife, and... Read more

Soothing bath

Monday, October 26, 2009      4 comments

We like to reward ourselves for a job well done--losing weight, drinking water, exercising, a pound lost. But our rewards don't have to be big. We don't need to buy something new or eat a forbidden food, or take a vacation. A reward can be as... Read more

No I'm not lucky. I've never won money gambling or on a lottery ticket. That's why I don't gamble or buy tickets. Why am I writing this? Because I have won 100 Spark Points three days in a row on the Big Spin Wheel. But, whenever I spin, I... Read more
