New Year's
Monday, December 28, 2009      3 comments

My DH and I are deadheads in that we usually go to bed early on New Year's Eve. We go to our cabin in the mountains and we usually chill out. However, if we have the grand children with us, I will stay up and let them make lots of NOISE! One ... Read more

I am going on a cruise in Feb. I've been on several but I was never in condition to do the healthy exercising. This time I'm going to try. Before, they had like a passport card and if you ate the Spa Menu, exercised, joined sports teams, walk... Read more

My DH and I had a big blowup on Christmas morning. He had bought me an expensive set of knives a while back that I use daily. He went to use a knife and saw a nick in the blade. And he went balistic and ended up storming out of the house--fir... Read more

Our big Christmas dinner is tonight so I'm cooking all day--with the help of my DDs. Thankfully, I bought lots of good munchies to put out. I got a veggie tray and a fruit tray. Guess what I'm eating? I also got shrimp and cocktail sauce. A... Read more

Nice subject, huh? I wonder how you count calories if you eat and then barf. I'm not talking about an eating disorder. I've had a gastric bypass and sometimes I eat a little too much. If I do, I barf. Also, sometimes food sticks in my throa... Read more

Making one change always ends up in more changes. This happens all the time. You lose weight, you have to buy new clothes. You start walking and you need new shoes. Etc. etc. I blogged before that I'm getting a treadmill for Christmas. My... Read more

I have five grand kids here today. They range in age from 14 to 2. They are playing video games, watching t.v., and playing Wii. All of a sudden there are 7 in the house. Two neighbor boys have joined them. It is noisy and they are having l... Read more

Yeaaaaaaa! I'm getting a treadmill for Christmas. My DH told me today. I guess my kids and I have dropped enough hints. He's been on Consumer's Reports and the Net. I told him to go to Sports Authority because they have a lot. Yeaaaaaa!... Read more

Well, I got out of a big drive. My DD lives 6 hours away. She is coming in on Tues. but her children are coming in today. I was suppose to drive half way (3 hours) and meet her and bring them home. When she called that they were ready, my ot... Read more

If you're reading this, then they didn't censor my title. What, you ask, is a brain fart? According to my 30-something daughter who is highly educated with a good paying job, it is when you can't find the right word you're looking for. She e-... Read more

We just purchased a new coffee maker. There was nothing wrong with the old one, it's just that the one we got looked fun. It's a Keurig and it makes one cup of coffee at a time. You put a single serving cup into the brewer and get a hot tasty... Read more
Two babies and a puppy
Wednesday, December 16, 2009      4 comments

I do my strength training while watching my 2 grandchildren: 3 & 2, and there's a fairly new puppy. What a time I have! The grandchildren must think I'm a horsie because they like to sit on me. At times I can use them as a weight, but if I'm... Read more

My ankle has been bothering me lately. It feels like I sprained it, but I haven't. Anyway, I've been walking but doing it gently. This a.m. my DD said, "Do you feel like walking?" I said of course, if I don't walk I don't get points. I've b... Read more
I'm a Pessimist
Monday, December 14, 2009      1 comments

By nature, I'm a pessimist. The only time of the year I even have a hint of optimism is Christmas. I love this time of the year. I even love the crowds. I just think of Mary and Joseph going into Bethlehem and the crowds there and what they... Read more
