Who Worry? Me?
I read something interesting today. A woman said, "The worst things in my life never happened!" Think about it. We worry about everything and usually nothing happens. Our worrying about tomorrow takes the happiness out of today. Another qu... Read more
Men In Black
Call me weird. I don't watch much t.v. and I don't like reality t.v. However, there are several shows I like that feature men (and women) in black: The Exterminator, Dog, the Bounty hunter, and Repo. I also like Cops and I guess they're in b... Read more
Wash It First
One simple rule: Wash everything first before U put it in Ur mouth. Everything! Meat, poultry, fruits, and veggies will hold up. Pies, cakes, cookies, etc. won't. Unless Ur into mushy desserts!... Read more
Tonight I made "Dump" soup. I call it that because I start with low-sodium broth, heat it up, and then dump all my leftovers in it. Each time U make it, it'll taste different. And if U watch what U cook all week, it won't be high in calories... Read more
My DH and I went to dinner tonight. I observed the couple across from us--I'm a horrible people watcher! The man was in his late 70s and the girl was in her 30s. They shared an appetizer with bread, shared a steak dinner, shared the dessert, ... Read more
Gas vrs. Service
Have U ever tried to explain the difference between a gas station and service station to an under-16-year-old? My 13-year-old grandson cannot believe that we used to have service stations. I explained how we drove in, sat in the car, and wait... Read more
The other day I went to the grocery store just to get an avocado. I had been thinking for some time about eating something yummy and gooey--like an eclair. This is unusual because I don't eat that kind of thing. I'm not too into desserts and ... Read more
Another Expert Debunked
I recently blogged that experts don't know everthing. I saw another "study" which doesn't pan out in my family.
It said that babies born to mothers who gained a lot of weight or were not breast fed would more than likely grow up to be obese c... Read more
I'm so tired of people needing noise everywhere: in the house, in the car, in stores, in malls, etc.
Even if it's quiet in my car, someone will come alongside and have their "music" so loud it rocks my car.
And if I were ever in a store whe... Read more
swn With the Experts
I contend that experts don't know everything. I've seen doctors make mistakes. I've seen teachers make mistakes.
I always heard that if you read to your children, they'll become readers. Not so. I am a big time reader. I read to my childr... Read more
Ah Ha Moment
I had an ah ha moment. I wish it had been for weight loss or motivation or a love of exercise. But no--it was something I ate.
On diets before, I learned to dip my fork in the salad dressing and then get some salad. I never liked it and nev... Read more

I went to observe Curves yesterday and I'm still not sure I'm going to go. I have a few issue with myself and the place that I need to resolve.
Number 1 is that I can't bend my knees and there are several machines that require a knee bend.

This is Too Too Funny!
For my birthday this year, I purchased a week of personal training at the local health club. Although I am still in great shape since being a high school football cheerleader 43 years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to go ... Read more
