Made up Words
Thursday, November 12, 2009      2 comments

I was reading an ad last night and it said that a puppy had a ginormous appetite. That got me to thinking about other made-up words. We have several in our family. One is ignoramous as in, he's an ignoramous because he can't remember his addr... Read more
What is Petite?
Wednesday, November 11, 2009      8 comments

My husband makes a habit of looking over all the bills with a fine-toothed comb. I'm always buying things for the kids and grandkids and he wants to know what, when, where, how, etc. He saw a charge for the petite section and said, "Who was th... Read more
Mothers and Dieting
Tuesday, November 10, 2009      1 comments

I just read a blog on SP about the image we have of our body and how it's affected by our mothers' dieting. My mom never dieted. She was probably wearing a 14 or 16, but her self esteem was terrific. If someone commented on a dress she was we... Read more
Consult a Doctor
Monday, November 09, 2009      2 comments

This is a disclaimer: don't try this at home kids! I get a kick out of diets saying, consult your doctor before trying this diet. What's he going to say? It's about time you got off your fat butt?! My doctor has recommended every diet unde... Read more
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
