I'm not envious of Europeans, I am blessed and greatful to be an American. But there is one things they have one us--eating. What started this train of thought is when I was driving around town yesterday. Most of the other drivers I saw were ... Read more
I just received two of the new SP trophies--one for 500 points earned in November and one for 1000 fitness points earned in November. I LOVE all these new SP thingies. I also got a new SPoint trophy the other day. It's so much more colorful t... Read more
There is nothing more refreshing than ice water in winter--NOT! I'm trying though. I don't use as much ice as in summer, but I DO like my water somewhat cold. I don't count hot coffee or hot tea as part of my water intake--I'm pretty sure you... Read more
Sour Lemon Ade
Fairly newly married, my DH wanted some lemonade. I told him I would make it the next day. I'd never made lemonade before. I went to the store and bought tons of lemons. I really thought frozen lemonade would have been cheaper, but he wanted... Read more
No Fun Gyms
I hear you all talk about Drums Alive, Zoomba classes, spinning, etc. I've checked with local gyms and they don't carry anything like these classes. You must live in larger cities to get these specialized classes. Our gyms just have a few aer... Read more

Unsunny southern California
Two days ago I wrote about sweating and sunshine and beaches in southern sunny California. Yesterday at the malls, everyone was wearing shorts and flip flops. Today it is raining bucket! Coldish, thunder, lightning, rain, rain, rain, torrenti... Read more
Shopping & Walking
Went shopping with my DD on this Black Friday. We were gone for 8 hours. However, I'm only going to clock in 40 minutes. My DD and I figured out that I wouldn't count window shopping, shopping in the stores, and ambling along. We would only ... Read more
Thanksgiving in Sunny Souther Calif.
Rememeber the song, "Over the hills and through the snow, to grandma's house we go?" Well they certainly weren't in southern California. We are here to celebrate with my daughter and her family. We are in Oceanside, which is about 30 miles no... Read more
No, it's not that time of the year. A lady sitting in the chemo office said, I've got two newspapers. It reminded me of April Fool's Day. When my kids were younger, I'd put out $20.00 several weeks before April 1st. I'd tell them that the on... Read more
Once I Was a Wimp
I don't like exercise and I used to HATE it. Of course, I had bad knees and was a couch potato. My grandson was in Kindergarden and he took a bus home. I would meet the bus everyday and it was a whole 6 houses away--around the corner, so I co... Read more
In a former life--younger years--I was a journalism major in College. What I liked best was proof reading, which is looking for spelling and vocabulary errors. I still do it, in a way. You know those pesky fliers you get on your door or under... Read more
No More Moving!
I told my DH to find our home for EVER. I hate moving and didn't want to ever move. Well, I shouldn't have had 4 kids. I've helped everyone of them move--more than once! I hate moving. I hate packing and storing and sorting. My oldest daug... Read more

Can Illegal Drug Use be Funny
No, drug use is NOT funny. However, looking back at certain things can cause one to laugh. As my DD and I were walking this a.m., we were talking about some of the things kids try nowadays. It seems one of the things they are doing is drinkin... Read more
